In most cases opting for permanent roofing over the long term does pay dividends, both monetarily and in the value of your time and inconvenience, provided you select the right material. The key is to avoid selecting the lowest cost material and rather focus on choosing the best value material. Things to consider include:
- How long will I stay in this home?
- Is the look important?
- Is resistance to hail damage or high wind a concern?
- Will I go solar at a later date?
- Do I want an eco-friendly product?
- Are there developer covenants restricting my choices?
- Energy efficiency?
- Sound deadening?
Only you can decide on what is important in a roofing product and your budget will play a part in the decision process. While it will cost more up front for permanent roofing options, the long term value is the most important factor. This includes resale, insurance costs and deductibles (often considerably less for rubber roofing in hail prone areas), roof replacement cycles, and the value you place on a great looking slate-like or shake-like roof.
