Types of Roofing Materials

We work with only the best brands and materials, so whichever option you choose from us will be one of the best in its class. For your convenience, we offer a wide variety of roofing options to help you have the home of your dreams.

Asphalt Shingle Roofing

One of the most popular residential roofing materials, asphalt shingles are affordable and last 20-25 years. They come in several colors and styles, making them a longtime top choice for homeowners and contractors alike.

Metal Roofing

Standing seam roofs used to be seen primarily on commercial buildings, but as variations have evolved, homeowners are exploring metal roofs more and more. Materials can range from copper to galvanized steel, making options to fit any budget. Depending on the exact type of metal used, these roofs have a lifespan of roughly 50 years.

Ceramic Tile Roofing

Also known as clay tile roofing, ceramic tiles are a long-lasting, durable roofing option meant to withstand severe weather conditions, including heavy winds. Because of their weight, they require a certain type of support system, but these roofing systems can last 60-80 years.

Slate Tile Roofing

As the name suggests, this all-natural roofing system is made of stone, and is one of the oldest roofing systems still used today. Because of its durability and 100-year longevity, it’s often found on historic buildings and estate homes.

Flat Roofing

Flat roof options include a variety of materials, including silicone coating and thermoplastic polyolefin, or TPO. These options include heat-reflecting materials, which is a great way to help reduce your energy bill.

Wood Shake

Wood shake roofs, also known as cedar shake roofs, aren’t as common, but they can be a beautiful and long-lasting roofing option. Wood roofs that are properly installed and well-cared for can last anywhere from 30 to 50 years.

Other Factors to Consider

When you’re deciding on a roofing material, there are a few important factors you should keep in mind.


Your budget isn’t something to overlook. Although a roof replacement is by nature a big investment, certain materials will be more affordable than others. If you’re looking for an excellent roofing material on a budget, we highly recommend asphalt or architectural shingles. If you’re willing to pay a bit more to increase the longevity of your roof, ceramic or slate might be the choice for you.

Durability & Maintenance

How long do you want your roof to last? How much maintenance are you willing to put into caring for your roof? The answers to these questions will be huge factors in helping you determine which roofing material is right for you. In general, you can expect metal, slate, and ceramic roofs to provide the longest-lasting results with the least amount of maintenance.


Your roof doesn’t just protect you from the elements, it also insulates your home and can help you keep heating and cooling costs low. If you’re looking for a green roof that will improve the energy efficiency of your home, we highly recommend a metal or ceramic roofing system.
