Roofing Materials, Compared

There are many types of roofing to choose from. The type that is best for your home depends on your climate, your budget, and your desired style. We are always happy to answer your questions about roofing or any of our other services.

Here are some of the most popular materials to choose from:

a tile roofAsphalt shingles – This is the most popular choice because it is relatively inexpensive and easily installed. You can also choose white shingles that create a “cool roof” from your home. However, if you live in a very hot and sunny climate, asphalt shingles can dry out and become brittle over time.

Tile – Tile is another versatile material, but it is quite a bit more expensive. It comes in clay, slate, and even cedar wood. Wooden shingles do best in dry climates, as they can become moldy if they are exposed to too much moisture.

Metal – This is definitely the toughest roofing materiel available.Metal won’t break or fall down in severe weather conditions. It will not rust, and it comes in white so that you can cut down on your cooling bills in the summer. Metal roofs are flame-resistant, recyclable, and work fine in any climate.

Flat roofing – Flat-roofed residences aren’t as numerous as sloped roofs, but they do exist. If you have a house with a flat roof, you might know that they are prone to leaks. However, a weatherproof coating can be applied to help flat roofs stand up to rainy weather.
