Asphalt shingles remain the most popular roofing choice in America, and for good reason. They’re simple to install and require very little maintenance, and are available in a huge range of grades and styles to fit any budget. One of the most distinctive shingle choices is architectural shingles, also known as dimensional or laminated shingles. Architectural shingles feature two layers of shingle material bonded together, which allows for a shingle life of up to 50 years, greater strength and a beautiful varied finish. Multi-layered architectural shingles can be used to mimic high-end materials like slate and wood shake. Roof Masters prefers CertainTeed shingles for their quality, durability and warranty coverage.
One of the more expensive roofing materials, metal also offers a lifespan that’s longer than most: 50 years or more. It’s available in a wide assortment of designs and colors, plus it’s lightweight, durable and can withstand fire, wind and hail.
Aesthetically pleasing tile features many different textures and colors. Priced similarly to wood, both concrete and clay tile will last 50 years and beyond. While tile requires little maintenance, it is very heavy and can only be installed on structures with adequate support.
Wood Shingles & Shakes
Generally manufactured from cedar due to its inherent resistance to rot, wood shingles and shakes add a natural appeal to a roof. With proper care, including treatment with preservatives, wood roofing can last 30-50 years and sometimes longer.
