One of the most significant differences between residential and commercial roofing is the slope. Residential roofing slopes are 2/12 inches and steeper, which distinguishes them from the “low-slope” roofs and roofing materials that you’d find on a restaurant or office building.
Below you’ll find the most common residential roofing materials. If you’re unsure which one to go with, we’re happy to help you decide.
Asphalt shingles are the most common roofing material, and it’s easy to see why. Cost-effective and durable, they come in a seemingly countless number of colors. While they can last for decades, their real durability comes from reroofing. This means that a second layer of shingles can be applied over the first layer.
Some shingles are now solar reflective. If you’re interested in this, let your contractor know, and they’ll be able to find the appropriate materials.
Wood shingles are used mainly on higher slopes – from 4″ -in- 12″ upward. We typically use cedar because of its rich look and its bug-resistant properties. When properly applied and maintained, you should expect wood shingles to last for roughly 30 years.
Split wood shakes have a rustic look. While that doesn’t make them suitable for all homes, it makes them perfect for certain architectural styles. They’re more difficult to install than shingles, so if you want to use this roofing material, make sure you’re choosing an experienced, trustworthy contractor.
Elegant and durable, concrete roof tile creates an instant “curb appeal” that can enhance any exterior style. It lasts longer than traditional roofing materials and is able to withstand winds in excess of 125 mph.
Concrete tile comes in an endless variety of colors, helping to complement any architectural design. It’s also 100% recyclable, making it perfect for eco-conscious homeowners.
If you’re looking for durability and ease of maintenance, there’s nothing better than a metal roof. Manufactured to perform in the harsh South Florida elements, these roofing systems are lightweight, corrosion-resistant, and recyclable. With dozens of colors, coatings, and profiles to choose from, metal gives architects and homeowners the freedom to realize their vision.
