Asphalt & asphalt fiberglass shingles

Wood shingles & shakes


If you choose wood shingles and a shake roof it will look beautiful. But, you can definitely expect more maintenance compared to an asphalt roof.

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 Roofing

If you choose to roof your home with composite shingles, expect the industry’s longest warranties.

“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

Slate is the best of all roofing materials but finding a professional who can properly install or repair it can be difficult. Most of the roofing slate installed in the U.S. comes from the slate deposits of Vermont or Pennsylvania.

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.
