If you have made up your mind that complete roof replacement is the answer, you should start thinking about what kind of roofing will be best for your home. With the exception of wood shingles, which are used less and less because of their potential to be a fire hazard, you’ll have your choice of the following six options.
Architectural Shingles: A layered shingle style, this delivers a contoured appearance without the need for extra installation time.
Asphalt Roofing Systems: Also known as composite shingles, these are very affordable and easy to install, but are not recyclable and don’t have great insulation.
Fiberglass Shingles: A common kind of asphalt shingle, these are made with a bottom layer of woven fiberglass to create thinner and lighter shingles.
Concrete Tile Roofing: Versatile and durable, concrete tiles are a popular pick in hot climates as well as places that receive heavy snow and rapid thaws.
Faux Slate Roof: Since slate is heavy and expensive, faux slate replicates the stylish look at a fraction of the cost.
Metal Roofing: This roofing material be made from steel, copper or aluminum, and it can offer solar reflection, Eco-friendliness and a 50 year life span.
