Types of Roofs

Asphalt Shingle – Owens Corning, GAF, Certainteed

Asphalt shingles are the most common type of shingle and are widely used in the U.S. They’re economically priced and relatively easy to install. There are two main types of shingles: three-tab shingles and architectural shingles. Aesthetically, the shingles look very different. The main difference is three-tab shingles lay flat and look like individual shingles but are only one shingle whereas architectural shingles have no cut outs and have an additional layer of shingles on the lower part giving a dimensional look. There are more options than ever when it comes to shingle styles and colors. We have provided a gallery to display some of the options

Metal – Standing seam, master rib, 5V metal panel installation

Metal Roofing is a growing trend in the roofing industry because of the initial and long-term benefits it can provide. Metal roofing’s durability, energy efficiency, and sustainability make it appealing to homeowners. Initially, a metal roof is a greater investment for your home compared to asphalt shingles. However, metal roofing is much more energy efficient because of the ability to reflect sunlight. Plus, it has a longer life expectancy than non-metal roofs by 2 to 3 times. Many types of metal roofing are available and can vary significantly in style and cost. Some of the most common metal roofing panels are: standing seam, master-rib, 5V-panel, metal shingles, and metal tile.

Tile – clay, and concrete installation

Tile roofing is the most popular roofing product in the world. Tile roofing’s durability, energy efficiency, and long-term sustainability is why it’s so popular throughout the world. The initial cost of a tile roof is traditionally greater than asphalt shingles and metal roofing products, but tile roofing has the longest life cycle of any roofing product. It’s a permanent solution that is intended to last the life of the structure it protects. Tile is available in an array of different colors and styles to suit any architectural style. Roof tiles can be flat, round, or even simulate wood shakes. Tile is available in concrete and clay.

Flat roof – modified torch, self-adhered modified bitumen roofing, TPO, EPDM, and built–up low slope roofs

Low-slope roofs are often referred to as “flat roofs.” Low slope roofing products are typically required and installed on a roof where the pitch (slope) is 2:12 or less, in other words, when water can’t adequately drain off your roof, sometimes leaving ponding water. There are many different types of low-slope roofing products available to accommodate your project and budget. Some of the most common residential roofing applications are: polymer-modified bitumen membranes and single-ply membranes.
