What Kinds of Roofs Are There?

Asphalt shingles are among the most popular kinds of residential roof installation. Their ease of installation, lightweight, an assortment of styles, affordability, and durability make them a preferred choice among consumers. Asphalt shingles do well in a range of climates. Their protective granules guard against UV rays while giving the shingle its color. Because they are lightweight, asphalt shingles make a good option in places with seismic activity (you don’t have to worry about a heavy roof making your structure collapse), and since they are also fairly fire-retardant (they can withstand flames for about two hours), they do well in areas prone to wildfires as well.

What’s the Best Roof for Me?

Metal roofs are another good option. They are long-lasting, with an expected lifespan of 40 to 70 years. They are durable and can withstand winds up to 140 miles per hour. Asphalt shingles are a petroleum-based product and increase reliance on fossil fuels. Metal roofs, on the other hand, are environmentally friendly because they can be made from recycled material and are themselves recyclable. And because they can be installed over an existing roofing system, the need for shingle removal and disposal is eliminated. Another benefit of metal roofs is that they’re energy efficient. Instead of absorbing solar heat, metal roofs reflect it. During the summer months, a metal roof can reduce cooling costs by as much as 25 percent.

Tile roofing is another of our specialties and an exceptional roof covering. For starters, tile is absolutely stunning. Choose from concrete, clay, or stone. You can even get concrete tiles molded to look like wood! Besides being beautiful, tile roofs are an investment that can last centuries while adding tremendous value to your home. In terms of function, tiles are impervious to water and highly wind-resistant. They can withstand fire, pests, and frost. Energy savings are another benefit of tile roofing. Natural ventilation under the tile creates a heat transfer barrier that makes your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.
