Types of Roofing
Shingles are the most widely used roofing material in the United States and across Indiana. More than 70% of homes and businesses utilize shingles on the roof.
However, choosing the right type of roofing can have a major impact on your home. Here are the pros and cons of different roofing types:
These are by far the most popular due to the vast variety of styles, lightweight design, and of course, cost. Asphalt shingles are relatively inexpensive and, with improving technology, are now recyclable.
One of the biggest cons is they do not withstand extreme temperature fluctuations and can wear quicker in these conditions.
Metal roofing is by far one of the most durable roofing materials. They are the least likely to sprout leaks, last more than forty years with proper maintenance, and are extremely desirable in a home. Aluminum is lightweight and easy to install, but another option is copper, which many find a little more aesthetically pleasing.
The only con is it is a little more expensive.
Tile is unique in its appearance, and is desirable for its durability. Tile roofs can last upwards of fifty years.
Some homes may not be able to support tile, so be sure to ask our experts!
