Installing a new roof is something that, if done properly, will last for years. Some of the most popular types of residential roofing shingles are as follows:

  • Asphalt shingles. Generally, the most popular type of shingle used in North America due to its durability, versatility, and affordability, asphalt shingles can often last between fifteen to thirty years.
  • Metal. With their extremely long lifespans (probably longer than the homeowners!), metal shingles are a great option for durability and energy efficiency, as they can help reflect heat.
  • Clay. With a very long lifespan and great energy efficiency, clay shingles can add a lot of resale value to your home due to their aesthetically pleasing curb appeal.
  • Slate. Although the most expensive option for most homeowners, slate roofs can last well over a century, making them a great long-term investment.

Residential roofing can greatly vary in terms of style, durability, and affordability; all of which needs to be catered to the individual homeowner based on their wants and needs. Contact us for an estimate to begin planning your dream roof today.
