Choosing suitable roofing materials will determine if your roof will last and be strong in different weather conditions. It can also make your property look better from the outside.

In the market today, there are a lot of materials and most of which are good and some not so good. Nevertheless, if you get overwhelmed by which roofing material to buy, you are in the right place. This guide will highlight factors you need to consider when choosing suitable roofing materials.


Each person is unique, just like our budgets. It is very important to do your research before buying any roofing materials. You want to purchase the highest quality item that you can afford. We recommend choosing a manufacturer that has a payment plan. 

An example of a great payment plan is the Kidani LIPA POLE POLE program. The program enables you to purchase the roofing materials you need within your financial ability.


Buildings are constantly exposed to climate factors such as rainfall, wind and sunlight. Because of these factors, the materials chosen should be durable to last a long time. If you are in an area that mostly experiences rainfall, you need a material that can withstand heavy rainfall. You can also consider sloped roofs to allow the water to drain easily.


Beauty is not the only advantage of a quality roof, it is also a  great investment. When selecting roofing materials, it is also important to understand their durability and lifespan, as well as the ease of repair. 

A roof with a long lifespan will serve you for years to come while a durable roof will not require any roof replacement. With this in mind, it’s very critical to be mindful of the quality of the materials you are purchasing

Water Harvesting

There are clear advantages to rainwater harvesting at home. One is easy access to water 24/7 and the other is low cost. If you are interested in water harvesting then you should ensure that you are using good-quality mabati. To avoid water wastage, we also recommend installing the right gutters and ridges on your roof.


At Kidani, we are dedicated to giving the right mabati which are of quality and durable. We hope after reading this guide, you will make the right decisions for your biggest investment. You can email us at and our Kidani team will be happy to serve you.
