Standing Seam Metal Roofing
Asphalt shingles appear to be the most popular in our area because they are both affordable and durable. They also come in a wide variety of styles and colors to match any kind of exterior. There are several different types of asphalt shingles. We can clarify for you the differences and help you select the best asphalt shingle for your home.
Metal roofs can last up to 100 years! Because of their longevity, most metal roofs are less expensive than asphalt shingles in the long term.
Metal roofing does not get as hot as asphalt and it reflects heat away from the building underneath in summertime. Metal roofs can offer a reduction in energy costs. Metal roofing is also lightweight. Metal roofing for both commercial and residential properties provides a clean and polished look while also providing superior protection to your property’s structure and longevity.
Standing seam metal roofs will offer a more modern look for the outside of your home. This style of roof offers vertical metal panels that run from the roofline of the property down to the eves. A distinct design feature of standing seam is the absence of any screws or visible fasteners, making the roof style more visibly appealing. The standing seam roof is considered to be the higher-end option among all of the different metal roofing choices. Standing seam is by far the most popular roof style because it is energy-efficient, durable, environmentally friendly, and ready for solar integration.
Clay roof tiles have a very distinctive appearance, and for this reason, are favored by some. They are specifically designed mainly to keep out rain, and are traditionally made from locally available materials such as terracotta or slate. Modern materials such as concrete and plastic are also used in roof tiles and some clay tiles have a waterproof glaze. Roof tiles are 'hung' from the framework of a roof by fixing them with nails. Installation cost and maintenance need to be considered when looking at this type of roofing.
Slate Roof Tiles
Slate roofing tiles have some significant advantages, mostly due to the fact that they are made from a natural stone product, giving them a unique, beautiful appearance along with longevity. Unlike many roofing materials, slate tiles are completely fireproof. Slate roofs can withstand high winds, heavy snow, and rain. Slate roofs last longer than most other types, but slate is also more expensive.
