Your Options For Residential Roofing Materials


Asphalt is the most common residential roofing material, and you can elect plain asphalt shingles or laminated shingles. The tradeoff between traditional asphalt shingles and laminated shingles is that laminated shingles are more expensive and typically last only 15 years, whereas traditional asphalt shingles typically last around 25 years.


Wood shingles add an incredibly rustic look to your home, and much like asphalt shingles, often last around 25 years. However, because wood is incredibly flammable it is strongly recommended that you not only check that they’re permitted under your local fire code, but that your home does not normally contain any abnormally high-flammable materials.


Common on Spanish Colonial style homes, the traditional reddish tile shingles afford a unique look, and are particularly popular in America’s southwest.


Slate is perhaps the most durable residential roofing material, and is renowned for the unique look which it imparts onto homes. Slate is so long-lasting that it is sometimes recycled for reinstallation after 100 years, and is expected to last another century! However, slate is very heavy and carries a hefty price tag, so it is a good idea to talk out your options with your local roofing expert to find out if it's right for you.
