The strength of their roof is not something that many people spend a lot of time thinking about, unless there is a problem, of course. A roof provides every homeowner with valuable protection and security, and taking care of your roof can be a great way to ensure that this protection lasts. There are many different types of roofing options, and choosing the right one for your budget, needs, and longevity can help you have more enjoyment from your roof. Here at Sipe Roofing & General Contracting, we want to help you in your selection of the right residential roofing materials for your own needs. Here are a few residential roofing materials for your consideration:
- Asphalt Shingles- Asphalt shingles are one of the most popular and cost-effective types of residential roofing materials. Because these shingles are easy to install, relatively light and hold up for decades with proper maintenance, they are a great option for the average homeowner. However, they will likely need to be replaced every 15-20 years due to age.
- Metal Roofing- Metal roofing is strong and can withstand the most extreme of weather conditions. Made from panels and different types of metals including aluminum, stainless steel, copper and more, these roofing materials are made to last. While more expensive, a metal roof is going to last anywhere from 50-75 years, making it a worthwhile investment for your forever home.
- Clay Tiles- Clay tiles are often used in areas with extreme weather and in homes of certain styles, like Spanish architecture or Mediterranean. These tiles are very durable, but also very heavy and costly. They need to be installed correctly and by professionals in order to get the lasting effects.
These are just some of the materials available for residential roofing, and our team only installs metal roofing and shingles. If you have questions about our installation process or other questions about residential roofing, please call us today!
