When you choose metal roofing, you have the option of selecting alloy, aluminum, steel or copper. Here the differences come down to shape and texture. There are many reasons to choose metal roofing. It keeps your home cooler by reflecting the sun’s rays instead of absorbing them inside. Metal is also durable and lasts for a long time. When your roof is maintained properly it will not need to be replaced for at least 50 years. Copper is a popular choice among metal options because it gives a highly attractive look that many homeowners like. Steel is popular because it is a very customizable option. Steel can be shaped and manipulated into different angels to provide a truly unique look.
Asphalt shingles are one of the most popular roofing materials currently available. It comes with a long warranty of 20+ years. Many homeowners appreciate how easy repairs are as well. Since shingles can be replaced individually, you are less likely to need a full roof replacement, should your roof suffer any damage. Overall, it is durable and easy to install, making it a convenient and affordable choice. It is tough enough to withstand the elements and is waterproof because of the minerals used to produce it. It also fights against the effects of ultraviolet light. You also have the option of using asphalt that looks like shingles, cedar or slate, but at a lower price point.
Slate tiles last a long time, at least a century or more. They are made from a high quality natural stone. Appearance wise, many of our customers prefer slate based on looks alone. It adds an unquestionable natural beauty to any home. There is also a variety of color options, including: gray, green, black, red, purple, or mottled. Slate is also naturally fireproof, which is a huge advantage when it comes to protecting your home from the elements and airborne fires. It is also environmentally friendly to use slate, mostly because of how long it lasts which results in less roofing materials used overall.
Tar and Gravel Roofing
If you own a commercial property, tar and gravel roofing may be the best option for you. It is a great alternative to shingle roofing and still gives you the reliability and durability you need. Overall, it is easy to maintain because it has fewer components. This makes repairs much easier and cost efficient. Tar and gravel also act as natural insulators. This is great for climates like Utah. It also provides natural fire-resistance.
When it comes to tile roofing, you have the option of using slate, clay, or concrete tiles. All of these withstand extreme weather conditions that bring high winds, hail, and even fire. It is also impervious to rot and inspect damage. Most of the tile options we offer come with a 50 year warranty. Tile is energy efficient and helps regulate the temperatures inside your home.
Tile is also leakproof so the maintenance on your roof will be minimal. You have a wide variety of choices when it comes to overall appearance. Having your tiles resemble wood shakes and shingles is an option. We also offer a GI sheet with tile roof installation. When it comes to making your home energy efficient, GI sheet is the best roofing option for solar panel installation.
Wood Shakes Roofing
Like the name implies, wood shakes are made of wood. You can choose from cedar, redwood, or pine. It is very aesthetically pleasing and will make your home stand out from the rest. If you have a Victorian style home, or something similar, wood shakes are a wonderful option for a complementing style. Wood shakes also create energy efficiency because they provide a lot of insulation. This will save you money every month on your energy bills because your roof will help your home stay at a comfortable temperature. Our wood shake roofing is also wind and hail resistant. It can withstand severe weather and keep you home dry and leak free.
