Asphalt & asphalt fiberglass shingles
Wood shingles & shakes
Wood shingles and shakes are usually made of red cedar, Alaskan yellow cedar or Eastern white cedar. These evergreens have wood that is dimensionally-stable and resistant to rot and insects.
Shakes are split from a log and have a rough, random texture. Shingles are sawed and have a smoother surface. Wood roofs are expensive and require additional skill to install. This is why most people avoid wood roofs unless they are building on a historic house.
“Composite” applies to several types of roofing. It refers to the different materials used in the manufacturing process. One of the most common types of composite roofing you will find is a simulated roofing slated made from resins and rubber compounds (extracted from reclaimed tires). The slate look-a-like provides excellent longevity and lower installation costs. The roofing also appears very similar to the traditional slate roof.
Slate roofing is both costly to manufacture and difficult to install. It is the most expensive roofing option available. But, when properly installed and maintained a slate roof can last 75 years or more.
