Asphalt, or composite shingles are still the most popular. They are attractive, inexpensive and relatively easy to install. They carry a warranty of fifteen to thirty years.
Slate shingles are another popular choice. They boast low maintenance, fire resistance, and a long life, however they are more costly. This can be offset by the fact that slate tiles may last fifty years, and with proper maintenance, have been known to last up to one hundred years. The main disadvantage to slate is its weight. Your roof may need to be reinforced to withstand the extra weight. Installation will also require a professional roofing contractor experienced in working with slate.
Metal roofs are one more excellent option. These are extremely durable and can last a lifetime. They are the most flame retardant. Metal roofs must also be installed by a professional roofing contractor. In addition, metal roofs are an environmentally friendly choice.
