When it comes to roofing, you can select the right type of roofing for your house from a number of different options. To give you an idea of what options are available, here are some common types of roofing materials systems.
– Asphalt shingles are the most common roofing materials used in our area. There are numerous designs of architectural shingles or 3-Tab shingles, both of which give a classic look to roofs.
Slate roofing is less common due to cost and structural requirements, but slate roofs are both beautiful, and durable. For an elegant look, you can select natural slate roofing. However, if you need more color options and something slightly more cost-effective, there are synthetic slate roofing systems available.
If you’re looking for something aesthetically pleasing, tile roofing is definitely an option to consider. In terms of style and color, tiles offer a vast variety of roofing designs and are also highly durable. Tile roofing is more common in Mediterranean style homes.
Metal roofing is also a viable option and is quite popular due to its durability and longevity, especially in areas near lakes or mountains.
For a more rustic and historic look, cedar shakes are an option. While they are usually a popular choice for historic buildings and homes, they look equally good on many newer residential properties.
If you need a flat or low-slope roof for a sun room, garage or porch, you can choose from several flat roof systems including modified bitumen, EPDM and built-up roofs.
When you’re getting a new roof installed, you may want to consider installing or upgrading the gutter system on your home. Choices include 3” x 4’ extruded aluminum gutters gutters, gutter and debris covers, or half round copper gutters
