Shingles and Tile
Residential roofing comes in both shingles and tile. Shingles are made of asphalt, metal, slate, wood, or synthetic material, and tiles are made of clay or concrete. In general, shingles are cheaper, while tile lasts longer. The most popular material for shingle roofing is asphalt, because it is the least expensive. It comes in many colors and styles, with warranties ranging from 20 years to a lifetime. The next most popular shingle material is metal, which lasts 40 to 60 years. Slate is ideal because it is naturally nonabsorbent and durable. Similarly, wood is resistant to moisture, decay, and insects, and comes in western red cedar, pine, redwood, or cypress. It lasts for 30 to 40 years, and does better with treatment every few years. Synthetic roofing can be made to look like asphalt, metal, slate, or wood. Tile roofing lasts for up to 100 years, and has a lovely historic look. It can be made of clay, which is baked, or cement, which is Portland cement mixed with sand and water.
Standard roof installation takes one day to complete. However, depending on the pitch, size, or other facets of your roof, as well as weather condition, the project can take a few days more.
Additional Home Improvements
Your residential roofers specialize in a number of services related to roofing, including siding, porch ceilings, and gutters. Siding helps give your home a refined look, and protects corners and edges from wear and tear. It comes in vinyl, fiber-cement, and wood, and can be used as a ceiling for your outdoor porch as well. Wood should be treated every 4 to 6 years. Vinyl is the most popular option because it is the cheapest and lowest maintenance. Fiber-cement is best for corners, columns, windows, and doors because of its natural resistance to rot, termites, and impact. Gutters are vital for water control. They divert rainwater runoff away from the structure and foundation of your home, and also protect your windows and boxing systems. Gutters can be installed in aluminum, copper, and numerous colors.
