Although you might not think of the roof over your head every day, it plays an important role.

There are a lot of factors to consider when making decisions about home roofing, including aesthetics, cost, life span, maintenance, environment, and geographical location.

When choosing a roof for your custom home, you want to be confident that it will stand the test of time and protect your investment for years to come. Adair Homes has partnered with IKO to provide high-quality roofing at a competitive price.
