Types of Residential Roofing

Every residential structure is different and therefore it’s important to have an understanding of different residential roofing systems, their qualities, and which would be the best fit for your home:

Shingle Roofs

Asphalt shingles are the most common roofing material because they are simple to install and are one of the more economical choices. These shingles are also incredibly durable and boast an average lifespan of about 15 to 20 years. They are also available in a wide selection of colors and styles.

Metal Roofs

Metal roofing systems are great for homeowners with concerns about longevity. Metal roofing systems must pass stringent wind and uplift tests that include simulated wind speeds that are over 150 miles per hour. Metal roofs are also fire resistant, and by having one installed on your home, you may be eligible for lower premiums on your homeowner’s insurance.

Tile Roofs

Tile roofs are loved for their durability. Properly installed tile roofs can withstand rain, wind, and hail. They’re also fire resistant, like metal roofs, and can lower energy costs because they reduce heat transfer through air circulating under the tiles. Like shingles, they are also available in a variety of colors.

Roofing Materials

Both commercial and residential roofing systems are made of durable material that can withstand harsh weather.

Durable options include:

  • Metal Roofs
  • Asphalt Shingle Roofs

Commercial roofing incorporates additional factors like ventilation, roof top air conditioning and air filtration systems, when choosing the right roofing material.
