Lowcountry Roofing: Experienced Summerville SC Roofers
If you’re like many homeowners, you find shingles to be the best option when it comes to Summerville roofing material. Shingles are easy to put on yourself, and they come in a variety of colors to fit your home’s aesthetics. If there is ever any damage, it doesn’t take long to pop up on the roof and make a quick repair. Shingles are the best option for a more do-it-yourself kind of homeowner. However, the cost of shingles add up quickly, particularly if you aren’t sure what kind you want to invest in. And sometimes buying cheap can be more expensive, because lower quality shingles break down faster.
When choosing the singles you want to use, the first thing you should consider is the cost. How large is your roof? Measure it with a tape measure. Remember, a 15-foot by 15-foot roof equals out to 225 square feet of space that you have to cover. If you add in an additional 10% or so for any bad cuts you might make or accidents, that’s about 250 square feet of shingles that you will need.
The next thing to consider is your home’s climate.
