Asphalt shingles traditionally come in three-tab profiles as well as laminate shingles. A wide range of shingles are available, and many can mimic the the more expensive slate, wood shingles, or ceramic tiles. Both fiberglass shingles and organic-mat shingles are made with asphalt.
Wood shingles are created for more traditional style homes. They are made from treated wood and hold up in four season states where the weather does not get to the extreme. They are very attractive and many people are choosing wooden shingles today for their homes.
Slate roofs are beautiful and offer excellent protection from fire. Slate is a unique roofing material that provides a long life. There are disadvantages though. Slate is expensive and hard to install because extra structure is needed to support the additional weight.
Flat roofs and extremely low slope roofs need a gravity-proof roofing solution. It appears that the new single ply membrane roofing materials may be just the thing. Commercial buildings are very likely covered with one of the many different types of single ply membrane roofs.
Metal roofs are extra durable and offer a long life. They’re resistant to sleet and hail and environmentally sound. They’re more expensive to install and require special tools. Some people object to the sound of a metal roof in the rain while others find it somewhat comforting.
