And why, thanks to many exciting changes in recent years, asphalt roofing continues to be number one. Constituting about 80% of roofs in America, asphalt roofing shingles are the most popular type of residential roofing material. In the past, uninteresting appearance was the biggest strike against asphalt roofing—it just didn’t offer the visual interest and charm of classic materials such as wood and tile. But things have changed and now asphalt offers a multitude of different styles shapes and colors.
Rubber roofing is expensive, but when compared to wood shingles and taking into consideration the longer life span, it balances out. Rubber roofing is produced in various styles. It can be manufactured to resemble slate, tiles, cedar and asphalt.
Rubber roofing shingles often cost much less than other roofing materials, and are extremely durable. Rubber roof tiles are wind and fire resistant, able to withstand pest infestations and are naturally waterproof. Rubber roof shingles are much easier to maintain when compared to traditional roof shingles. Though the shingle may fall off or tear due to the rubber expanding or contracting, it can very easily be repaired using some adhesive and spare parts
Slate roofing has the ability to last for multiple centuries and is resistant to almost everything. The downfall being, though, that it’s heavier than clay tile and requires even more specialized installation, in addition to the hefty price tag of this roofing material in the first place. In order to install slate roofing, a house must be engineered to support over 1,000 pounds per square. Slate roofing is as high-end as it gets, but in the right situation have been known to last over 100 years.
