What Types of Roofing Materials are There?

Today there is a variety of roofing materials.

Today there is a variety of roofing materials. Long ago, clay, slate, and concrete were the only materials used for roof installation. Now, there is a more extensive inventory, meaning that we can customize how we install your roof. Today we’re going to share a guide with you on what roofing materials are out on the market. Keep reading! 

Solar Tiles

Solar collectors can integrate into existing shingles seamlessly. They are excellent if you’re a homeowner that wants solar panels but can’t because it’s not in compliance with specific codes.

Asphalt Shingles

Asphalt shingles is the top roofing material. They are suitable for all weather conditions. They pass wind tests and durability tests. They’re also affordable, and typically, you don’t have to replace them for 20 years when you let one of our expert contractors install them.

Metal Roofing

Metal roofing can last for 60 years. It comes in vertical panels or shingles that resemble slate, tile, and shake-style roofing. Metal is wind-resistant, heat-resistant, and lightweight.

Steel Coated with Stone

Interlocking panels exist that resemble slate, clay, or shingles and resist substantial rain-damage. This roofing option is not only economical but most suitable for wet, windy areas that are wildfire-prone and can last a lifetime.

Clay and Concrete Tiles

Need materials that will withstand tornadoes and hurricanes? Then, these are it! Clay and concrete work best in dry, humid climates. 

Green Roofing

If you want an environmentally friendly roof, then this is the best option for you. Green roofs involve plants covering them to improve the air quality and help with water runoff. They last about 40 years so long as they have extra structural support

Asphalt, Tar, or Adhesives Combined With an Aggregate

This roofing type is known as built-up roofing. This option only works for a flat roof. If you want a rooftop deck, then tar and gravel roofs work best because of the heavy foot traffic. 20-25 years is how long this selection lasts. Keep in mind that it’s sticky and harder to shovel snow, but no worries. We, the experts, can take care of any maintenance, repair, or replacement that you may need.
