There are now synthetic roofing products, including rubber, plastic and polymer roofing, developed to give you the color, look and texture of natural materials like slate and wood. These products are designed to be strong and easy to maintain. Some of these materials are also fire-resistant. Synthetic roofing is often not as fragile, heavy or expensive as natural products.
The most prevalent residential roofing material used in the USA today, asphalt shingles are popular because they are practical and easy to install. These shingles can be reinforced with fiberglass or organic materials (cellulose) without changing the appearance of the shingle. Asphalt comes in a variety of colors, is widely available and is one of the most cost efficient materials available in todays market.
House Styles: Asphalt shingles work with numerous architectural styles, especially traditional suburban styles.
Clay and concrete tiles add character and refinement to a roof. Genuine flat, ribbed or scalloped clay tiles are extremely durable but also very heavy, and must be installed by a professional. Concrete tiles are versatile and are less expensive than genuine clay, but also have a heavy weight. Clay and concrete tiles are long-lasting and non-combustible, and concrete tiles are also energy efficient.
House Styles: Clay and concrete tiles work well with Mediterranean, Mission, Southwestern and Spanish-style homes.
Metal roofs are resistant to extreme weather conditions. Available in two types, panels and shingles, metal roofs come in aluminum, copper, stainless steel and zinc. They're sleek, lightweight, long-lasting and recyclable, and something to consider if you're interested in rainwater harvesting. Metal roofing is reliable, lasts longer than asphalt or wood, and offers high solar reflectance.
House Styles: Metal looks great on bungalows, cabins, contemporary and cottage-style homes.
Offering lots of style and a distinctive elegant appearance, slate colors include shades of black, green, grey, red and purple. Slate is very durable, fire-resistant and a sustainable roof that can be recycled.
House Styles: Slate works well with Colonial, European and French chateau homes.
The go-to roofing choice for hundreds of years, many homeowners love the look of wood shingles and shakes and how they weather to an attractive shade of gray. Wood shakes are handmade and more rugged looking than wood shingles, which are usually cut by machine. Wood shingles offer a rustic look and are a natural product usually made from cedar, redwood and southern pine.
House Styles: Shake's rustic aesthetic pairs well with bungalow, Cape Cod, cottage, Craftsman and Tudor-style homes.
