OFFERING DIFFERENT ROOFING TYPES
There are different types of roofing available. Knowing what your options are and the important facts about them can help you decide which is best for you. They are:
Asphalt shingles – Asphalt shingles are, perhaps, the most common roofing material in the U.S. This is because of its low cost and it is installed quickly. It is also resilient. The downside is that they don’t insulate well and they are not always recyclable.
Wood shingles and shakes – Wood shingles and shakes are available in cedar, southern pine, redwood, and other woods. Cedar is the most expensive of them all. The look is rougher and wood tends to be flammable. It is important to check local building codes before opting for this type of roofing.
Clay and concrete – Clay tiles are very heavy, so the roof framing either has to be able to handle it or additional framing has to be added. They are very durable and non-combustible. They also look very elegant.
Slate – Slate is very beautiful and it is heavy. Slate can last for hundreds of years, is easy to repair, and is recyclable.
Metal – Metal roofs are some of the coolest in regards to temperature and they are available in copper, stainless steel, and aluminum. They are not very heavy and they are durable.
