Asphalt shingles have long been a popular choice for residential homes, and as new colors and compositions are developed, the available options are only getting better.
Homeowners choose asphalt shingles for their roofs for a few reasons. First, asphalt is fairly durable, long-lasting, and cost-effective to install. Second, asphalt shingle roofs are easy to repair because they’re made up of small shingles. And third, when your roof starts leaking or gets damaged, vinyl is simple to remove and replace on the affected area.
Composite roofing is a combination of common roofing materials that provide enhanced durability. Basically, a composite roof gives you the upsides of a number of different roofing materials without the disadvantages to go along with them. For example, composite roof shingles can resemble wood shingles in appearance but be composed of mostly asphalt. This gives you the timeless look of a wood shake roof for a slightly higher price than asphalt.
Tile roofs have a signature Southwestern-style appearance that many homeowners find desirable. In addition, although the material is more expensive than asphalt, tile roofs are durable, stand the test of time, and are easy to repair if one or more tiles gets damaged.
There are many types of wood roofing materials on the market, and you may have heard that they don’t withstand moisture and age efficiently. Modern wood, however, like cedar shake and finished cedar roofing, is graded to stand up against most threats to your roof’s lifespan. This ensures that you can enjoy the rustic look of a wood roof without any of the downsides.
Residential metal roofing
Are you looking for the best metal roof for a residential project? Similar to wood roofing, there are many different types of metal roofing available. Galvanized steel and aluminum are commonly regarded as the best metal roofing materials for residential projects.
Galvanized steel has the reputation of being able to resist nearly anything that nature throws at it, from heavy wind, rains, and hail to fallen tree branches. Also, because the metal is treated, it won’t rust. This makes it one of the best metal roofs for residential projects. The other metal ideal for homes is aluminum. Aluminum roofs aren’t as durable or long-lasting as galvanized steel, but the comparable lifespan per cost of installation make both materials cost-effective.
