Shingle Roofing

A roof shingle is a type of roof covering that is an individual overlapping element. Elements used could range from asphalt, fiber cement, wood shingles, and metal shingles. Asphalt is known to be the most popular and widely used among others because of being light-weight, easy to install, and low-cost.

It could be an aluminum roof, copper roof, corrugated metal roof, metal slate roof, Standing seam metal roofs, steel roofs, tin roofs, and zinc metal roof.
Elegance and sophistication may not be distinguished together when you describe the esthetics of metal roofing. But, it is suggested not just by roofers but most of the roofing companies because it requires cheaper installation, low-cost maintenance, and does not need a sturdier foundation for the roof. The life expectancy of metal rooves depends on the type of metal used in your house.

Cedar Shakes

Are the most commonly used roofs, It gives that rustic cabin look because of the design and cuts of the cedar shakes, which is quite different from cedar shingles. They are highly durable, especially with a waterproof coating and is also 100% sustainable.
If you look closely with the cedar shake material, the cut is quite on some edges, and the texture is rigged. Which resembles an ax-cut texture and very different from a precise machine-cut cedar shingles.
This roofing material doesn’t require much maintenance, but if you want a faded look, you can skip the protective waterproof coat to achieve the weathered gray look. This type of roofing could also last for 50 years and more like most shingles.

EPDM Roofing

EPDM rubber or ethylene propylene diene monomer is a durable type of rubber and mostly used for low-slope roofs. This type of rubber is suitable for extreme conditions of weather, fire-resistant, eco-friendly, recyclable, and typically lasts between 20-30 years depends on the type of EPDM rubber used.
The installation of this roofing is very easy than the other roofing elements. It is only attached by an adhesive to a low-slope roof.

Tile Roofing

Creates this appealing air of quality to your house that is highly durable at the same time. The tiles are mold from clay, concrete, or ceramic. Other than that it is placed in an overlapping manner, the same as the roof shingles, leaving a small space in between each tile which makes the house breathable and well ventilated.
Another good reason to consider tile roofing is that the materials or elements used are a Class-A fire rating. It can withstand fire than most elements used for roofing. Other than that, the clay, concrete, and ceramic tile roof’s life expectancy can last 100 years and more. Makes it the cheapest type of roofing if you divide the cost to its life-expectancy.
Although, there are things that we have to consider before getting a tile roofing is that the installation of the elements is not easy. Yes, it could withstand grueling weather, earthquakes, and fire, but the tiles are brittle. Its installation starts from the bottom edge going up the roof, and there might be times where the roofer might accidentally step on the tile and might lead to cracking. You might want to consider roofing companies that specializes with tile roofing, avoiding damages during repairs and installations.

Low-Slope Roofing

This type of roofing design is used in most commercial establishments and sought after for residential roofing. The materials used for low-slope roofing could range from built-up roof membranes, metal panel roofs, PVC, TPO, EPDM, polymer-modified bitumen sheet, or spray polyurethane foam-based.
It is mostly used in modern designed houses and requires lesser materials that make it less expensive, practical, and ideal for larger buildings. It may cost less, but due to being nearly flat, it drains slower. Therefore, most low-slope roofs require waterproof materials to protect the roof deck.
