7 Reasons You Need A Luxury Roof For Your Custom Home

If you are building a custom home, you deserve a custom roof. That’s where a luxury roofing system comes in.

Durable, long-lasting, and eco-friendly, a luxury roof is a choice that can bring your new home to the next level.

Beyond their practical benefits, luxury roofs are much more customizable than the standard asphalt roof.

Because of their uniqueness, a custom roof allows homeowners to choose a roof that reflects their specific tastes.

At Ramon Roofing, we wanted to help homebuilders and homeowners understand how a luxury roof can benefit their custom homes.

Here are 7 of the top reasons your custom home deserves a luxury roof:


Unlike the typical asphalt shingles roofs, a luxury roofing system is built to last.

To give you some context, an asphalt roof typically will have a lifespan of 15 to 20 years. More, that figure is only accurate with regular maintenance and repairs.

In contrast, a luxury roofing system will last significantly longer. A residential metal roofing system will last 30-45 years, and that is with substantially less maintenance than the asphalt system.

A wood shake & shingle roof will last 50 to 100 years with proper maintenance. A clay tile roof can last up to 100 years; the same goes for a slate tile roofing system.

A copper roofing system can last for centuries! Right now, there are copper roofs from the 12th Century that are still functional!

These luxury materials are manufactured to a much higher standard, and their lifespans reflect this.


Not only do luxury roofing systems have greater lifespans, but they also can be incredibly durable!

For example, a clay roofing system is naturally resistant to extreme weather.

When an asphalt roof experiences extreme changes in temperature, the roof expands and contracts, causing damage to the system.

In contrast, a clay roof will expand and contract considerably less, maintaining your roof’s integrity.

A clay roof is also entirely resistant to rot and mold, a serious problem with asphalt roofing systems.

In the event of a fire, an asphalt roof will combust, which poses a severe safety risk.

Clay, Metal, Slate, and Copper roofs are all naturally fire-resistant. Luxury roofs are not just an aesthetic choice; they keep your home and loved ones safe!

Minimal Maintenance:

Any homeowner with an asphalt roof can tell you one thing: they require a lot of maintenance to stay functional!

At Ramon Roofing, we recommend an inspection every six months to ensure your asphalt roof is still in good condition.

This is not the case with luxury roofing! Because of their durability, clay roofing systems require very little maintenance compared to asphalt systems.

With a metal roofing system, the roof will also be significantly less work to maintain compared with asphalt.

There is next to zero maintenance required with a slate roof beyond a broken or damaged tile!

The best part of these roofing systems is not just their beauty; with a luxury roofing system, homeowners have the privilege of not worrying about constant maintenance!


For homebuilders or homeowners, a custom house deserves a custom roof. With a luxury roof, you can pick the exact roof to match your dream home.

For clay tile roofs, you can choose your style of tile, color, and layout.

With slate roofing, you can select the color and texture of the slate itself to attain a personalized look for your home.

Of course, with Cedar shingles, your home will stand out in the neighborhood!

Finally, metal roofing is misunderstood in the residential roofing space.

While previously a material utilized primarily in commercial roofing, metal roofing has now advanced to offer custom homes a custom appearance!

At Ramon Roofing, we carry a wide variety of colors and styles in metal roofing. Purple, red, green, blue; if you can dream it, we have a metal roof in a custom color to match your home.

Unique Curb Appeal:

With a luxury roof on your custom home, you can bet that your house will stand out in the neighborhood.

Because of the customizability of many luxury roofing systems, you can choose a home that reflects your personality and design preferences.

Not only will this make you proud to call your house “home,” but it will make you enjoy it more!

According to a study from the National Realtors, 59% of homeowners who invest in curb appeal feel an increased sense of enjoyment of being at home after investing in curb appeal.

By investing in a luxury roofing system, you can truly enjoy your home!


While some newer asphalt shingles are recyclable, most used asphalt shingles are destined to fill up landfills.

Equally, asphalt shingles are a petroleum product that contributes significantly to environmental damage.

With luxury roofing, many of the products are both eco-friendly and recyclable!

Because of the natural materials, clay tiles are an environmentally conscious choice that does not deplete scarce resources.

With slate roofing, the tiles can be instantly recycled into another project after they have been used on a roof.

Because of their origin in nature, slate tiles are among the most eco-friendly materials available in residential roofing.

With metal roofing, the material is recycled on both ends. According to a Florida Department of Environmental Protection study, up to 40% of metal roofing is made of recycled materials.

On the other end of the roof’s life, 100% percent of the metal roof is recyclable!

Beyond all of these details, the lifespan of these luxury roofing systems makes them sustainable.

In the same time that an asphalt roof has been torn down and replaced multiple times, your luxury roof will remain intact.

Savings In Energy Costs:

With many luxury roofing systems, a homeowner can expect significant savings in their energy bill.

Because of both the color and material of clay and concrete roofs, they help reflect solar rays, which results in more efficient cooling of your home.

Equally, a concrete or clay tile roof will help maintain a cooler indoor temperature due to their ability to store and radiate heat.

Equally, due to their reflectivity, metal roofs also result in drastic savings in energy costs.

Durable. Energy Efficient. Eco-Friendly. Beautiful. With all of these benefits, we are only scratching the surface of how a luxury roof can bring your custom home to the next level.
