Before making any roofing changes or repairs it is important to know the pros and cons of different roofing materials. Some are better suited for your home or business. Below you will find more details of different roofing types and their appropriate uses. For even more details or a qualified recommendation please contact one of our experts.
Clay and concrete tile roofing are often grouped together because they are both masonry roofing materials with similar installation requirements. Whether clay or concrete is used as the molding material, the end result is a roofing tile designed to overlap and/or interlock with adjacent tiles.
Clay and concrete tile roofs are well-suited for hot climates that don’t have high rainfall; they shouldn’t be installed in areas where heavy, regular rains and freezing temperatures are common.
Asphalt shingles can be used on any house and is a great value for the money. There are lots of styles and colors. They are easy to repair and fire resistant. Asphalt shingles also offer a variety of designs from basics 3-Tab shingles to the moderate 30 Yr, to the high-end tri-laminate/shake shingles. Even a scalloped look shingle is available.
Typically made from cedar, this style of roofing material typically works with cottage, ranch and contemporary bungalows or historical homes. This product will weather from its natural wood cedar color to grey. These are expensive and are labor intensive to install. They are high maintenance and have a lifespan between 13 and 15 years if they are maintained and can offer some insulation. Fire rated wood shakes are available at an upgraded price, but are not allowed in some municipalities.
Slate roofs come in a wide variety of sizes, colors, and thicknesses. One can create many different looks to enhance just about any architectural style. Slate is a natural product that is mined or quarried from the earth. It is a very labor intensive product to install. Like clay and concrete tile, this product is also heavy and the roof deck needs to be engineered properly.
Metal roof systems typically have longer warranties, are fire retardant, are light weight and easy to install, and are resistant to insects and rot. In addition, they reflect the suns radiant heat which helps to reduce heat buildup in the attic. In general, metal roof shingles can cost two to three times the cost of traditional asphalt shingle. Though more expensive than traditional asphalt shingles, their extended life, as well as their attractive appearance, makes them a great investment for the residential or commercial property owner.
TPO roofing systems are among the fastest growing commercial roofing systems. Made of an especially durable material with a low-temperature flexibility and a high-temperature tolerance, these roofs are exceptionally resistant to ultraviolet, ozone and chemical exposure. TPO roofs can be expected to have a lifespan of 20+ years, and also feature a high resistance to fire, punctures, chemicals and high winds.
EPDM roofing offers superior durability and versatility, making it one of the longest lasting types of commercial roofs available. EPDM commercial roofing systems are also typically easier to install, maintain and repair than most other types of commercial roofs.
