Among the types of residential roofing systems typically found on homes in the U.S. are:
Still one of the most popular among the types of residential roofs in North America, asphalt shingles offer affordable protection in a wide array of colors and styles. Asphalt shingle styles range from low-cost “three-tab” shingles to more durable and attractive “architectural shingles.” Asphalt shingles are fire resistant and easy to repair. Depending on the grade selected, asphalt shingles offer a 15-30 year life span.
Similar to asphalt shingles in size and color options, fiberglass shingles are lighter in weight and more durable, although at a slightly higher cost.
Wood Shakes or Wood Shingles
A natural material that looks great on homes with traditional architectural design. Although wood shingles and shakes require more care and maintenance, they can provide a life span of 30 years or more. They are not as fire resistant as asphalt, tile or metal.
Metal roofing materials, particularly standing seam metal roofs, are growing in popularity. Metal roofs are very durable, with a life span of 50 years or more, and require little maintenance. Metal roofs can be installed over existing roofs, eliminating the need for a roof “tear off.” Metal roofs stand up to tough weather conditions and are environmentally friendly.
