Asphalt Shingled Roofing
Shingle roofing is the most common roofing system today. Shingle roofing is definitely the best pitched roofing system for the money spent.
Asphalt shingles are the most common roofing materials installed on a residential home. This is due to many factors, including their versatility in colors and profiles, the fact that they are relatively inexpensive and because they have a 20 to 50 year material warranty provided by the manufacturer.
Flat roofs, also known as low slope roofing systems, are not entirely flat. They may look horizontal or nearly horizontal, but they usually have a slight slope of about 10 degrees to allow water to drain off.
Flat roofs have been around for centuries and the old technology of using asphalt compounds to deflect water was being used until thirty years ago. New technologies minimize the use of asphalt where possible and also provide insulation properties, as well as waterproofing.
Benefits of flat roofs are that they are more accessible making it easier to inspect, maintain and clean. With a properly maintained flat roof, you can extend the longevity of your entire roofing system.
Flat roofs can potentially increase the insulation value of your home. Foam roofing systems, for example, have an inherent insulating value that can reduce your cooling costs and help the environment by reducing the heat reflected off your roof.
Metal roofing has become more common in the recent years. Metal roofing is a long lasting, energy efficient, lightweight roofing material that can provide a home or commercial building with great curb appeal.
One of the great benefits of metal roofing is its longevity. After many years of owning a metal roof, you will really begin to reap the benefits of your investment; metal roofs provide you with weather protection with nearly no maintenance or replacement costs. Metal roofs are highly fire and wind resistant.
Metal roofs are considered an energy efficient roofing system. Although metal can retain the heat from the direct sunlight, your home can be protected from unwanted heat by installing an insulation board directly beneath the metal. If your metal roof is coated with a highly reflective coating, it will allow even more of the heat to reflect away from the attic of your house.

Tile roofing is beautiful, but not waterproof. Tile roofing is a watershed and a decorative roof covering. The actual waterproofing is provided by the underlayment, or felt paper installed underneath the tile. Some felt is organic, but all deteriorate over time, especially in the sun. This usually takes 12 to 20 years, depending on several factors, and then the felt must be removed and replaced (R&R).
When a 12-15 year old tile roof starts to leak the tile has likely outlived the underlayment and is often a much bigger problem than is first thought. Often, it is a telltale sign that the felt is deteriorated and ruined. Delaying the complete replacement of the felt beneath the tile will only result in ongoing frustration for the occupants, not to mention the damage to the interior contents of the building.
