What Roofing Materials Are Best for Your Home?

Roofing materials come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and styles. Regardless of what kind of material you desire your roof to be created with, it needs to be sturdy and long-lasting. This is not just aesthetically displeasing, but it wastes your money and puts your home at risk from the outside elements. The risks of using poor materials on your roof include leaks, mold, rot, and other major problems. You can ensure that when you call All Seasons Roofing, we are only going to the finest materials to get the job done right the first time around.

Here is a run-down of today’s popular roofing material choices that you should consider for either a commercial or residential building:

Asphalt Shingle Roofs:

Asphalt shingles are very popular due to its ease of installation and manufacturing. It is commonly used in homes and commercial buildings of the Southeast. The asphalt material is essentially waterproof, which is very effective for keeping out the frequent, soggy rains and humidity that you will experience in the Wilmington area. They were first used in American roofing in 1903 and have been a top choice across the country ever since. There are two types of asphalt shingles to choose from in the modern roofing market, organic and fiberglass. Organic shingles, as the name implies, contains natural elements such as wood fibers. Organic shingles contain 40% more asphalt per-square-foot than fiberglass. But fiberglass-based shingles resist fire damage better and can do just as good of a job of combating adverse weather conditions. Asphalt Shingle Roofs are excellent for first time home buyers or for someone looking to replace a roof with a less expensive, water-resistant material.

Metal Roofing:

Metal roofing is extremely strong, durable and creates a modern look for residential and commercial roofs. The advantage with metal is obvious as it resistant to elemental damage more so than other types of roofing materials. Metal roofing costs can exceed shingle roofing but may be outweighed by the benefits. Metal roofing carries a very low chance of sparking or setting on fire, leading to better safety. It is also energy efficient due to how it reflects solar heat during the day. This reflection lowers your cooling costs by at least 10%-20%. Metal roofing is also very durable. This material can sustain wind gusts up to 140 miles per hour and will not corrode or crack. Metal roofing material is a great option for someone who wants to opt for durability as well as great looks.

Tile Roofing:

Tile roofing is a great choice for someone who is looking for the feeling of an Old-World villa, but still wants something that is equally durable. While not quite as sturdy as metal roofing, tile roofing has a record for performing well during harsh conditions. This is extremely important and relevant to the Eastern Carolinas that we service. Tile roofs are also fireproof and provide your chosen residence with a safe and robust material. Natural slate is a very nice-looking material for tile, but you can also use tile made of concrete or clay. Metal tile is also useful for having the best of both tile and metal roofs in one.
