      ================== ARTICLE START ==================
      There are lots of choices in what kind of roofing you want over
      your head.

      What is it everyone cites as the basic requirement for living?
      "I'm just glad to have a roof over my head." Yet the matter is
      often taken for granted, with many homeowners paying little or
      no attention to the thing overhead that's keep them safe, warm
      and dry -- until it starts to leak, that is.

      Then they notice.

      There are dozens of materials commonly used in roofing, all of
      them functional as well as decorative. Indeed, most people
      choose their roofing material based on aesthetics or on what
      their local homeowners association mandates, rather than on
      what will function best.

      Clay tiles (which are often made of concrete, not clay) are
      known for their durability, often lasting as long as 50 years.
      They are more expensive, though, which is a deal-breaker for
      many homebuilders.

      A more basic roofing material is the asphalt shingle. They're
      not particularly attractive, but they do the job. They are
      particularly good in areas without much rainfall, such as the
      Southwestern U.S.

      Also good in those areas are wood shake roofs, made of many
      individual pieces of wood that are affixed to the roof. These
      don't conduct heat as much as some other materials do, so
      summers are more bearable. (In colder areas, you might not want
      this kind of roof, as you might want something that WILL trap in

      When roofing repairs need to be done, unless you have
      experience in that area, it's usually best to call in a
      professional. Roofing is notoriously backbreaking, arduous
      work, bad on the knees, back and shoulders. It's also harder to
      do it right than it may appear, and if your intent is to solve
      an existing problem, you're better off letting a pro do it and
      avoid the risk of making it worse by doing it yourself.
