There are many types of roofing materials, some brand new, with a range of advantages and disadvantages. You can re-roof with the same type of roofing material that you currently have or investigate alternatives. Some materials are environmentally friendly and some are long-lasting or low maintenance.

Before making your choice, consider the life-cycle cost of your roofing material. Some materials, though much more expensive, require less maintenance and have a longer life expectancy than others. An asphalt composition roof might last just 20 years whereas a metal roof might last more than 50 years. Consider both the current and potential value of your home, and its age when calculating whether a roofing material is actually "too expensive." It might just be more cost-effective in the end.
