Standing Seam Metal RoofingThere's metal roofing, and then there's a particular type called standing seam metal roofing.Houses in your neighborhood with metal roofs most likely are of the standing seam variety. Continuous panels run from the ridge of the roof all the way down to the eaves. Between the panels are seams connected by fasteners which are raised above the level of the metal roofing. This is where we get the term standing seam, because the seam is raised or standing, as opposed to flush-mounted.
Tile RoofingTile roofs are a wonderful choice for a beautiful and classy look for your home. They have been around for many years, making a delightful presentation for your home. With various types of roof tiles available, one can have the exact look they desire. From flat tiles, imbrex, tegulas to pantiles you can choose what best suites your taste. Roof tiles have a long life expectancy. They are known to last for 50 years, but have lasted longer.
Composition ShinglesRoof shingles are a roof covering consisting of individual overlapping elements. These elements are typically flat, rectangular shapes laid in courses from the bottom edge of the roof up, with each successive course overlapping the joints below. Shingles are made of various materials such as wood, slate, flagstone, fibre cement, metal, plastic, and composite material such as asphalt shingles. Roof shingles are a very common roofing material in the United States, but may deteriorate faster and need to repel more water than wall shingles.
Slate RoofingSlate roofing tile has a long and storied history, and is generally known as one of the highest quality, longest lasting roofing materials on the market. On the other hand, the high cost, difficult installation, and relative fragility of slate roofing tile means it’s not ideal for everybody. Slate roofs can and should be routinely built to last at least a century. In fact, 150 years is a reasonable expectation of a roof’s longevity if the roof is properly constructed. That’s a big plus in an industry where many roofing systems are lucky to last 20 or 30 years before needing replacement.
