Types of roofing materials

There is an extremely wide range of materials available for your footing needs. This is based primarily on your budget but you will also need to keep in mind things such as your climate and desired look. Here are just some of the most popular roofing supplies on the market today.

Rolled Roofing – This is a very cost-effective and practical roofing. Rolled roofing may also be used on low-slope roofs on residential houses. It’s among the quickest methods of roofing, but it is not perhaps the most appealing.

Slate Shingles – These are made of real stone and perhaps one of the most attractive in this particular list but also the most expensive. This material can be hard to source depending on your area. However, installing slate shingles is not advisable. It is a very technical job and should be left to a qualified professional as it can be hard and time-consuming.

Asphalt Shingles – Also known as composite shingles, asphalt shingles are one of the most frequent roofing materials available in the USA. These tiles tend to be manufactured from a layer of fiberglass mat coated with asphalt and mineral granules. It is an all-purpose sort of roofing material that may be practical for almost all houses. Asphalt shingles are quite durable and the majority of them feature a warranty.

Metal Roofing – This is also among the most common forms of roofing. It is widely used on commercial roof s but has become increasingly popular on residential properties. Metal is a fire-resistant material and does not attract any of the wood-boring insects which are renowned for attacking homes. These can be painted in a wide variety of colours to suit most homes.

Tile – Cement and concrete tiles are very durable and made from cement mixed with pigment and sand. They will never rot, curl rust or burn. They can also reflect the sun’s rays and keep a roof cool. They are easy to maintain and have a lot of strength. Roof tiles made of clay or terracotta make a home look authentic and give a distinct character to any home. They get tougher as they age and can survive the worst of weather conditions. Again these can be painted to match nearly any homes design.
