Types

Low Slope

  • A roof that is nearly flat or slightly pitched is called a flat roof or low slope roof.
  • Weatherproofing, strength reinforcement, and surfacing make low-slope roofs waterproof, puncture resistant, and durable.

Steep Slope

  • Steep slope roofing has water-shedding properties and is used on roofs with an angle higher than 14°.
  • Asphalt shingles and metal are two common types of steep-slope roofing.

Residential Roofing Systems

Depending on the slope of your roof and the style of your residential property, there are a number of different types of roofing systems to choose from.

Asphalt Shingles

Asphalt roof shingles are among the most popular roofing materials used on homes across North America, and with good reason. They are designed to protect your home through decades of weathering with minimal upkeep and are available in hundreds of colors and styles.

Thanks to modern engineering techniques and the dynamic properties of asphalt, manufacturers like CertainTeed are capable of producing numerous specialty products that fight algae growth and offer enhanced resistance to hail damage. They also provide cool roof color technologies that reflect the heat of the sun to keep your home cooler and reduce the cost of air conditioning. Asphalt shingles are naturally fire resistant, which also makes them a smart choice for areas where wildfires are prominent.

Wood Shingles & Wood Shakes

The biggest difference between wood shingles and wood shakes is in style. Shingles are more uniform in appearance whereas shakes give a more rustic overall impression. Both wood shingles and shakes come in three types of grain: edge grain, flat grain, and slash grain. Again, the difference is mainly in appearance. 

A good place to start when choosing between wood shingles and wood shakes is your home’s existing architecture. By analyzing the way your home is built, we can determine which fit is a better match for both quality and style. Wood shakes are ideal for matching natural scenery around the home, resting easily atop both traditional and ranch-style homes. Shingles work best when complimenting cabins or cottages — however, these too can be adapted to enhance a residential home.

Clay, Slate, & Concrete Tiles

Clay tiles, which reflect rather than absorb the heat of the sun, help to keep homes cool in warm-weather areas. They are also aesthetically pleasing, weather-resistant and durable, with the potential to last for many, many years. In addition, they are impervious to insect damage, rot, mildew and mold. However, they are a heavy roofing material, and require a sturdy structure to support them. Before installation, we always consult an architect to make sure a clay tile roof doesn’t exceed your house’s load capacity.

Natural slate–probably the gold standard of roofing materials– features enduring beauty and longevity. Resistant to severe rain, wind and snow, impervious to mildew and mold, and non-combustible, slate roofs are usually very low maintenance and expected to last for generations. Slate can complement the look of almost any architectural style and is available in a wide variety of colors.

Concrete tiles are somewhat more inexpensive than clay tiles. Like clay tiles, they are extremely durable, and designed to last for the house’s lifetime. Although they lack the natural beauty of clay tiles, concrete tiles can be customized to mimic the look of clay, wood shake, or slate roofs; they are also available with various pigments for a range of colors. Like clay tiles, concrete tiles are heavy, and require a strong support system.

Metal Roofing

Metal roofing has a higher initial cost than other roofing materials. However, your metal roofing investment will save you time and money in the long term. Compared to asphalt shingles, metal roofing has a longer lifespan (15-18 years vs. 50+ years), and requires only annual maintenance. 

The types of metal roofing available add to its appeal, and each type has its advantages. Copper roofing is among the best, as it is highly resistant to corrosion and rust, as well as one of the longest lasting metal roofs, however, it costs more than other metals. Aluminum roofing is also highly corrosion resistant but aluminum can also be expensive as well. Tin roofing is strong and durable because contemporary tin roofing is actually a blend of tin and steel.

Because of metal roofing’s long-term durability, you ultimately save if you stay in the house for a long time and, of course, you will save on seasonal maintenance. Then again, if you plan to move in a couple of years, you probably won’t get the best return on your investment.

Flat Roof Coverings

  • Single-layer membrane
    • Single-layer roofing membranes provide a variety of materials to choose from. Their main characteristic is that they are designed to be installed in one layer. They exhibit great flexibility and they’re resistant to UV radiation. Single-layer roofing is usually black or white finish and glued, fastened, or installed directly over roof insulation material.
  • Modified bitumen
    • Modified bitumen roof systems can be installed with the common torch method, asphalts, or cold adhesives. A standard modified bitumen roof system is a two-ply system applied in rolls that overlap the edge of the previous roll. Modified bitumen roofing systems are designed to withstand harsh exposure to extreme environmental elements. With five layers of protection, it’s one of the most trusted flat roofing systems used in the industry.
  • Built-up roofing
    • Built-up roofing, also called BUR, is the most common roofing material used on low-slope roofs. It is composed of alternating layers of reinforced fabric and bitumen (asphalt), and is finished with a top layer of aggregate, such as stone or gravel. BUR is preferred for low-slope or “flat” roofs because it creates a continuous sealed surface.
