You might think a roof is a roof and that’s that. However, roofing types differ depending on the purpose of the building. Residential roofing is a type of roofing service that pertain to structures designed for people to live, particularly houses.
Residential roofing varies in design. However, the design is rarely as important as the fact that the roof needs to be easy to maintain, repair, and replace if necessary.
Types of Residential Roofing Materials
Every residential structure is different, so it’s important to have an understanding of different residential roofing systems, their qualities, and which would be the best fit for your home.
Asphalt shingles are the most common roofing material because they are simple to install and are one of the more economical choices. These shingles are also incredibly durable and boast an average lifespan of about 15 to 20 years. They are also available in a wide selection of colours and styles.
Metal roofing’s are low maintenance, lightweight, and environmentally friendly, giving them a ton of upside. They’ve also proven to be quite durable. The average life of a metal shingle roof is 50+ years, meaning your investment in them will last a long time relative to other roofing types.
Properly installed tile roofs can withstand rain or wind. They’re also fire resistant, like metal roofs, and can lower energy costs because they reduce heat transfer through air circulating under the tiles. Like shingles, they are also available in a variety of colours.
