It has been reported that more than 75% of Americans ask to have asphalt shingles roofing installed due to its affordability, resiliency, and ease of installation. It is made from a fiberglass mat that is saturated with asphalt and coated in colored granules. However, there is one drawback that we should mention, it has a shorter life span than other types of roofing. This is likely why they are among the least expensive of all the different types of roofs that we install.
Wood Shingles & Shakes
This type of roof is offered in a variety of woods, redwood, cedar, and southern pine. The shingles are made with the use of a machine but the shakes are handmade. The wood shingle and shakes roofing looks better than an asphalt roof, which is why it is more expensive. The drawbacks of this type of roof are that there seems to be a low fire resistance and mold whenever there are heavy rainfalls. This is one of the most popular types of roofs that we install at Berkeley Roofers. Call us to discuss your options in detail.
The slate roof is a natural material that is dense and non-absorbent. The color of your roof will depend on the mineral and chemical compositions. This will vary from one place to another, which means that it comes in a variety of colors. These same factors will determine how the slate will respond to the color changes when exposed to certain weather conditions. There are permanent slates and weathering slates that are available. Slate is heavy, which means that before re-roofing with it, the roof will need to be reinforced so that it can carry the weight of the slate.
