Buyers Should Know the Basics and Be Aware of Their Options for a Roof Upgrade or Custom-built Home

Roof Inspection

Tom Bollnow, an NRCA senior director of technical services, is cited in an article about how to select a roof for a new construction home that appeared in NewHomeSource.com Nov. 24.

According to Bollnow, asphalt shingles are the most common type of roofing material for new homes, primarily because of cost. Asphalt shingles will last 20 to 25 years depending on climate, weather, debris and other factors, such as whether anyone walks on the roof.

Asphalt shingles include fiberglass, making them more fire-resistant, though they are not as fire-resistant as other roofing materials such as slate or tile.
