Asphalt shingles are the most common and popular residential roofing material, as they offer excellent versatility, durability, and affordability. Modern asphalt shingles are a composite material that includes a fiberglass reinforcement to prevent tearing. Asphalt shingles are offered in three tab and architectural styles, each of which has some advantages:
As an added benefit, roof repair can be handled relatively easily with asphalt shingles. The roofing pros at NMC Exteriors & Remodeling can help you decide what type of asphalt shingles are the best fit for your home depending on your needs and budget.
Unmatched beauty. Although there are some maintenance challenges, it's hard to beat the appearance of wood shingles.
Wood is another common material for residential shingled roofs. Wood shingles have a beautiful finished appearance and generally provide very good durability. Wood shingles are cut with a saw and have a consistent thickness and shape, while wood shakes are split and are usually thicker and rougher. Either option can be used depending on the look you want to achieve and the style of your home.
While wood shingles and shakes are a great roofing material, there are a couple drawbacks. These roofs can be expensive to install, and they will require more maintenance than an asphalt shingle roof. However, the benefits of wood shingles still make them a popular choice -- especially for historic homes.
The gold standard. Slate roofing is the best roofing material available, but installation is pricey.
When it comes to roofing materials, nothing beats slate. Slate shingles are slivers of rock that are cut in the shape of shingles and installed as the roofing material. Slate is a versatile material that has unmatched appearance and durability, making it a fantastic choice for any home.
However, slate roofs are very expensive and very heavy, sometimes requiring additional work to the structure before installation. Slate can be difficult to work with as well, meaning an experienced and skilled contractor is a necessity. If you're interested in slate roofing, the experts at NMC Exteriors & Remodeling can help you find the best solution and give you a high quality installation.
Choosing the right roofing material is essential if you are considering replacing your roof, and we can help you find the best option for your home. We provide high quality materials and expert installation, and you can count on receiving a beautiful, durable roof.
