Roofing Types

Although the majority of homes use asphalt shingles, there are many roofing options available. Some materials are better suited for damage from hail,  while others provide a high level of fire protection. Shown below is a brief guide to the most popular types of roofing..

Metal Roofs

These roofs are popular because of their fire resistant properties and durability. Plus, metal roofs typically last longer than other materials; up to 50 years.  The most common type of materials used for metal roofing is steel.


Wooden Shingles
Wood roofing is typically made from cedar and is less fire resistant than other materials. Most areas of the country no longer allow wood shingles.


Asphalt Shingles
The most popular type of roofing material is asphalt shingles. This is usually the least expensive option for covering a roof. This material is available in many different styles and durability levels.


Slate Roofing
Slate roofing provides excellent durability, lasting 100 or more years in some areas of the country. The roofing is very heavy, so the structure of your house will need to be able to support it.


Tile/Clay Roofs
If you live in an area that is prone to insects or mold, consider clay tile roofing. This type of roofing is popular in the southwest region. Because the material is heavy, your structure will need to be evaluated to determine if it is a good idea.


Solar Shingles
Since the technology has improved; the price of solar roofing has dropped significantly. Solar shingles are popular because they allow you to help  power your home from the energy they collect. Typical roof installation costs vary, but energy savings are immediate, and there are usually tax incentives to installing solar roofing.
