Roofing Installation

There are many different types of shingles with each serving it own importance. The type of shingles a house has depends on the shingle of their taste, climate they live in, protection that it offers, and the amount of maintenance required for them.

ASPHALT SHINGLES

  • Asphalt shingles are also known as composition shingles, and they are a very popular choice as they are inexpensive and extremely durable. Once installed, they can last anywhere between 20 to 30 years. These shingles are strong and sturdy, you can even walk on them without causing any damage.
  • They are fire resistant, and the most popular choice for shingles in today’s homes. Asphalt shingles can be manufactured in a wide range of colors and styles.

WOOD SHINGLES

  • Because trees were plentiful in the earliest days of settlement in America, wood was used for almost all aspects of construction. Wooden roof shingles were lightweight, made with simple tools, and easily installed. With today’s building new fire standards wood singles have become obsolete.
  • Wood roofing comes in 2 types; shingles and shakes. Shingles have a smooth finish and are cut to a particular size. Although wood provides a very unique look to a home, it demands a lot of maintenance. Using this material for roofing can be a costly affair, as insects and rot can damage the material easily.

CEDAR SHINGLES

  • This type of roofing shingles have been around for quite a long time. Cedar shingles are very good looking and add to the royal look of a home. Cedar shingles come in cinnamon, honey and silvery gray colors, but people avoid using this type of roofing because it is not resistant to fire at all.
  • Cedar shingles require regular cleaning and care, otherwise their appearance may fade within a short time.

SLATE SHINGLES

  • Slate is a very costly choice to roofing your home. It is considered the most sophisticated and stylish of all roofing material. Slate comes in a variety of textures, colors and quality levels. Roofs with natural slate shingles are very durable, and with the proper maintenance they can last indefinitely.
  • Slate tiles are resistant to insects, weather, and they can also provide good protection against fire. Slate is very heavy so it is critical to make sure that your roof can withstand the extra weight.

CLAY TILE SHINGLES

  • Clay tiles shingles were common at one point in warmer climate areas such as Florida and California.
  • Clay tiles can be overlapping or interlocking. They provide superior fireproof protection and durability.
  • Clay tiles do not absorb the sun’s heat as much as other types of roofing which makes them a good choice for houses in warm climates.
  • Clay tiles are not suitable for climates in the frost zone as they will be prone to breaking, and water damage.

METAL ROOFING

  • Metal roofing is a more expensive roofing solution, however, it is a very durable, almost maintenance free and fire retardant roofing material.
  • Another important aspect of metal roofing is the fact that metal roofing is very environmentally friendly because it is made from 60-65% recyclable material.
  • Another good aspect of metal roofing is that it is very energy efficient because the metal reflects heat and it blocks its transfer to the attic.
