Re roofing

My parents are reroofing their outhouse. They are searching for a new roof material. They live in the outskirts of Toronto. As you know Canada has four seasons and they need a roof which can withstand all the four seasons. I was searching on google and found this blog http://www.royalyorkroofing.ca/blog/best-roofs/best-roofs-for-homes-in-four-season-climates/  . They have mentioned about cedar, asphalt shingle and slate roofs. I don't know anything about slate roofing. But I have heard that asphalt roofing is really good and durable. Which one should i select?. 

Re: Re roofing

  • Cedar - needs to be sealed, like a deck, not as often, but initially to insure that it will last. Slate can last a very long time but ads some serious weight to the roof of the house. Add on the weight of snow to that in the winter, I would be concerns about structural damage to home. I live in in northeast ohio and asphalt shingles seem to be the most popular way to go. It's affordable and lasts about 15 years if done correctly.
