Picking out a roof for a new home or a roof replacement can be a confusing process if you have zero knowledge about the different types of materials you can choose from. If you are yet unsure of what type of roofing shingles to use for your home, here is a list from expert roofing contractor, M&A Exterior Home Improvement, to help you decide better.
Also referred to as wood shakes, shingles made of wood offer a classic look for any home. They can last for decades, albeit with the proper maintenance required to keep wood in great condition. Wood shingles are also an environmentally friendly option as they are considered fully recyclable.
Asphalt remains a very popular residential roofing option as it requires lower upfront costs compared to other materials. You can try traditional 3-tab asphalt shingles or architectural shingles, whichever you prefer. Remember, though, to have an expert roofer, like M&A Exterior Home Improvement, handle your asphalt shingles to ensure proper installation.
If you want a type of roofing material that can last for over 100 years on your home, slate roofing might be for you. Its durability comes at a price, however, as slate is not only more costly to purchase but costly to repair too. Slate is heavier than other materials as well.
Another option that can last for up to 100 years or so is clay roofing. You may have seen clay tiles on Spanish style and other similar architectural style homes. Clay roofs are known to retain their color throughout decades.
