Consulting with experts such as At The Top Restoration can bring light to the doubts and lack of confidence if any while choosing the right roofing materials. Many questions can arise as to which one to chose, its quality, durability, asphalt or metal Shingles.
- Asphalt Shingles offer a variety of colors at an affordable price. This kind of roof shingle is designed to get the job done in two styles, 3-tab, and architectural. 3-tab gives the impression that of 3 shingles and it is thinner than the architectural style. The Asphalt Shingle lifespan is shorter than other roofing materials, and its quality can vary depending on the manufacturer.
- Clay and Concrete Tiles have a long lifespan, are non-flammable, and concrete tiles are energy efficient. Clay tiles can be very expensive, more cumbersome, and a unique roof framing is necessary for proper installation.
- Metal Roofing is durable, longer lasting than asphalt. Although it can be expensive; Metal Shingles make for a versatile, safe, fire retardant roofing material.
- Slate is durable, fire resistant, and recyclable when replaced. Just like its counterpart, Metal Shingles, this material is heavy, requiring additional framing. Salte roofing material is expensive, and when imported, prices can be sky high.
