There are a huge range of roof types and styles available for your home. Whether this is the design or the roofing material you use, it’s good to have an idea about the best option for your home. Read our blog for advice on the best design for your property.
Hazel Hurst Roofing provide a range of roofing material and styles for all commercial and domestic buildings. We can always talk you through a smooth design and installation process.
Slates used for roofing are made 100% of natural stone, therefore making stone roofing the ideal roofing material for your property. Stone is used to create a smooth style across any property and has fantastic durability and longevity. It will remain in great condition for a long period of time, preventing repairs and replacements being required regularly.
There is also a selection of colour schemes available with this roofing material. This makes it a popular choice for all homeowners and with some slate roofs lasting up to 150 years, it is a cost-effective option. Due to being fireproof and environmentally friendly, slate roofing is one of the most popular roofing choices.
Stone roofing can even reduce your energy costs and be recycled after use!
Whilst lead roofing is not as popular as natural stone, this roofing material does offer great flexibility. Lead can be pulled and stretched around any shapes or area for complete coverage of a building. Also expanding and contracting based on the temperature, this is ideal for any roof dealing with the UK climate!
If there are any spaces between different surfaces, lead can also act as a fantastic seal. This ensures all water and cold air is kept outside, whilst your home heating keeps you toasty. Lead roofing is resistant to all types of corrosion and can last up to 3 times longer than other materials. Like natural stone, lead roofing can still be recycled.
Lead is the perfect choice for many properties, however, can be an expensive option. It is vital this is installed by complete professionals and your lead roofing material remains in great condition.
Flat roof is the perfect design option for many properties, whether this is large or small buildings. This can be a much cheaper option for many buildings, using roofing materials and installations that never damage your budget. With flat roofs being extremely affordable and requiring little maintenance, they are ultimately the ideal option for many homes.
They also offer a lot of convenience for your home, being suitable for both solar panels and air conditioning units. The possibilities for your flat roof are endless, regardless of how large or small it may be. Whilst maintenance is not required regularly, flat roofs are more accessible than sloped ones. If you require gutter cleaning or repairs, flat roofing is the best option for your needs due to its accessibility.
