Part of what makes you good at your job as a roofer is knowing what kind of materials will best fit the needs of your client’s building project and budget. Let’s say you have a job that requires quick completion. You already have your Square Snap Report, so you know how many square feet will need to be covered on the roofing job, but now you face the challenge of helping your client decide whether to use slate or tile. Well that’s exactly why we put together this chart, a roof material guide, which allows you to take a big-picture look at different types of roofing material, each material’s life-span, pros & cons of each, as well as variations in the type of material that can be used. We recommend you print out this guide and use it as a compendium for yourself as well as a resource to show clients, giving them a clear and easy-to-understand visual of roofing material options.
