In terms of price it doesn't make much difference. If you really want something different, then a green roof is the second option. This is a roof made of vegetation. Think of moss, succulents or herbs, but larger plants such as shrubs, trees and vegetables are also an option. A green roof also lasts a very long time, cleans the air and has an insulating effect. This way you give your house a very unique appearance.

Another option is a thatched roof, but this does not suit every house and is pricey. You need a professional for this who knows what he is doing, because reed can place water through if it is placed incorrectly.
