There are a variety of residential roofing options for homeowners who are looking to transform their home. Each material offers a different set of color choices and textures, as well as a variation in cost and level of maintenance. Here are a few of the most popular roofing selections.
Asphalt shingles are the most popular for residential homes. There are many different reasons for their popularity, but mainly, it is because they are the least expensive. The cost of the roof is factored from the geographical location, the slope of the roof, the height of the building, the ease of access to the premises, the complexity of the project, and the type of shingle. Asphalt shingles are relatively simple to install, and they come in a variety of colors and styles. They are also fairly durable (some have been tested and have achieved a class IV hail rating—the highest available), and can easily be repaired and maintained.
Traditionally made from clay or slate, tile roofs were designed to keep out the rain. Modern materials, such as concrete and plastic, are now used as well. Roof tiles are mounted on the framework with nails; the tiles usually run parallel, overlapping each other to keep out the rain and hide the nail that holds the row below it in place. These roofs tend to be a lot more costly than the inexpensive asphalt shingle roof, but last longer and provide better weather protection.
Metal roofs are growing more popular due to their reduced energy consumption and their ability to increase the resale value of the home. Metal roofs are sound investments in the long run and last considerably longer than asphalt shingles. Metal roofs have also been known to reduce a homeowner's insurance. This roofing type comes in a variety of designs, colors, and styles, and it can come stone-coated and smooth.
