Choosing the Best Roof, Windows, and Siding for Your Home

What building materials are best for your home and budget? It can be very confusing without guidance.


If you want durability, metal roofing is one of the longest-lasting roofs for your money. Metal roofing systems are impervious to rot, insect damage or cracking. These roofs create a striking look when used to roof sunrooms, screen porches or gazebos.

Shake or slate roofs also offer a much longer lasting roof than asphalt shingles. Made of sturdy synthetic materials that won’t crack or fade, shake or slate roofs are highly-textured and much lighter than natural materials.


When it comes to siding, seamless steel offers a uniform-looking option that’s virtually free of maintenance chores. Seamless steel doesn’t fade in sunlight or warp like wood, and it doesn’t detach in high winds. If you would like more information, speak with Emco Steel siding contractors about the cost and benefits of seamless steel siding.

Fiber cement siding can improve your home’s curb appeal with its good looks and affordability. If you are concerned about weather damage, fiber cement siding offers excellent protection against freezing temperatures, storms, high winds and even fire.

LP siding is another affordable siding option to make your home’s exterior look new again. Call C&T Siding to speak with LP siding contractors about this option or contact one of C&T’s siding contractors at 651-483-6146 to learn more about this product.
