If you live in Ghana and enjoy the mild summer days and tropical nights, then like many Ghanaians, you are having a fabulous lifestyle. But, with this lifestyle, you need the proper type of roofing to survive those harsh tropical downpours and those hot steamy days. With the wrong material, your roof may just bake in the sun. Poorly constructed roofing systems will also suffer from the heat, result in cracks, and end up having leakages.
So, following are our picks of the best types of roofs if you live in Ghana.
Slate is one of the best roofing materials to use in this climate for many reasons. It is durable, will last a lifetime and once installed you can rest easy knowing that you will be safe from rainstorms, heavy winds and the harsh climate.
Metal roofs are also a good option for Ghana. Light coloured metal roofs reflect up to 70% of the sun’s rays, saving you on air conditioning bills. Go for a light-coloured or a white roof if you can.
Choosing the best roof material comes with a lot of reasons. Consider the price upfront along with the potential price for roof maintenance, repairs, and replacement. Ultimately, spending a little more now can help you save on future repairs while reducing your utility costs.
