What Type of Roofing Material is Best for Your Home or Business?


If your roof is over 20 years old then getting your roof repaired is not your best option. Any roofing contractor will tell you that roofing repair only goes so far. Eventually, a new roof installation is the only option.

When it comes to selecting a new roof for your Fishers, Carmel, or Indianapolis home or business there are a lot of factors to consider. The two most common types of roofing materials are asphalt and metal. There are several reasons why roofing contractors recommend these two types of materials the most. Both materials have their pros and cons.

New Windows Indianapolis

"My homes energy bill was very high year-round but still hot in the summer and very cold in the winter. I was very satisfied with Energy Smart Restoration. They were quick to return my call, schedule, inspect, diagnose, and install insulation in my attic. The result was almost immediate. The AC doesn’t run constantly and the temperature is much better regulated inside the house."

"Great experience working with this company. Everyone I was in contact with was very professional & polite. The work was done quickly and exceeded my expectations. I was very impressed with how well everything was cleaned up. I was contacted a couple days after the work was complete making sure I was 100% satisfied. I would recommend to family & friends."

Roof Indianapolis

"Amazed at the punctuality of the crew. They arrived at 7 AM, were on the roof by 7:15 and were driving away by 1:00 PM. The guttering was scheduled to be done, the crew arrived on time, went right to work and completed the work in an appropriate amount of time. Because of a previous job the equipment they had was wrong for my house. They had a set up for a smaller size gutter so I received a larger size which was an upgrade. The painting was the last thing to be done. It was the minor part of the job. It was completed promptly with no issues."
