Types of Roofs
Asphalt shingle roof – Made of organic or fiberglass mats, an asphalt layer and a protective grainy topcoat, this is a solid house roof choice. The cost to replace asphalt shingles is much less than other roof types. They come in large sheets that cover a lot of square footage at once, so they make for a fast roof installation.
Architectural or designer shingles have more layers per section than basic three-tab roof types, and they can last twice as long. We know how to install roof shingles to the exact specifications of major manufacturers.
Clay roof tiles – Spanish roof tiles are prized for their unique looks, but concrete and clay tile roof types can be made to fit any style of home. They are heavy enough to handle any condition: wind, hail, fire and pests. Your roofer needs to make sure your house can handle the added load. Our engineering team can offer you a free evaluation and tell you for sure.
Properly installed clay roof tiles will stay in place for a lifetime, although they may break in a windstorm or when walked on carelessly.
Slate – Mined from the earth, no two pieces are alike, adding to its exclusive appeal. Because it is heavy to transport and has to be hand-cut, this is one of the most expensive roof types. It requires a lot of time and experience to install correctly. If you want a lifetime roof, this is ideal. Slate roofing tiles are fireproof, insect-proof and hold up against any kind of weather.
Like tile, it may be too heavy for some homes. Call our residential roofing contractors for a free estimate. We source ours only from mines known for durable, high-quality stone.
Cedar shake roof – Natural wood is an Eco-friendly choice and looks beautiful on a high-sloped surface. Many are treated with insect and algae-repellents as well as fire-retardants. There are two main roof types: a wood shingle roof can be made of many types of lumber. Pieces are machine-cut into uniform sizes. What sets cedar shake roofing apart, besides the type of wood, is the rough-cut finish that gives a rustic look.
Low slope roofing – If your home has a flat covering or you have flat roof house plans, you need extra leak protection. There are many flat roof types, but TPO and rubber roofing are good choices for a house roof. They stretch with temperature changes to give you tear-proof protection in all weather.
