Unless you need a new roof, it’s likely that you don’t spend a lot of time thinking about the different types of roofs and roofing materials out there. Here at Mosaic Roofing Company, we work with different types of roofs every day and have learned quite a bit of information on the different options and materials available to homes and businesses everywhere. We want to share with you some of the roofing materials out there to help you decide what roof would be right for you. Consider some of the following materials:
- Asphalt Shingles- This is a very popular choice for roofing materials, and for good reason! Asphalt shingles are affordable and can last anywhere from 10-20 years, depending on your maintenance schedule, the quality of your shingles and the efficacy of the roofing contractor who does the installation. If one area becomes damaged, then it is possible to repair rather than replace in some cases.
- Metal Roofing- Made from aluminum or steel in most cases, metal roofing is a long-lasting material that is great for your forever home. While more expensive up front, metal roofs have a lifespan of 50-75 years and are great for areas that experience severe weather.
- Flat Roofing- Flat roofing is a type of roof that is primarily seen atop commercial properties. This specialized roofing is able to be tough and durable in many different types of weather, despite it’s no-frills appearance.
These are some of the most popular types of roofing available. We would love to tell you more about what options would be right for you. For more information, please contact us today!
