The roof is (literally) every home’s crowning achievement. Roofs provide protection from the elements and add style to your home. Our trained roofers at SPC Construction and Roofing not only install your preferred roof but also provide repairs and maintenance when you need it.
Not all roofing materials are the same. While aesthetics is often the primary reason for the choice, functionality, and durability are other things to consider as well. Listed below are some roofing options and what sets them apart from one another.
Asphalt shingles are one of the most cost-effective roofing options out there, making them one of the most popular. With asphalt shingles, you get a wide variety of colors and styles. These also come in impact-resistant variants, which can save you up to 20% on your annual insurance.
Metal roofing or sheet roofing is a single piece of steel treated to withstand the elements. Metal roofing is traditionally coated with zinc to prevent corrosion. Some popular metals used for this type of roofing are steel, aluminum, and even copper.
Tile and Slate
Tile and slate roofs are the elegant choice when it comes to roofing. Slate roofs are composed of a single piece of rock formed into a shingle. Tile roofs are made from either clay or ceramic, formed and then baked into a shingle.
While sophisticated, tile and shingle roofs are prone to breakage, faults, and displacement. This is why only licensed, fully trained professionals are required for installation and maintenance.
When it comes to stone-coated steel roofing, we only use DECRA. DECRA is an established brand with over 50 years of experience in producing roofs that are both durable and stylish.
Finally, the rustic shingle is the newest addition to our line of roofing products. Rustic shingles are elegant, durable and most of all, energy efficient. They are made from recycled aluminum and can even save you up to 25% in energy costs.
Thinking about where you live, and the kind of climate you have can help you with your roof selection. Also, matching your roof style with your house’s or building’s style will not only lead to a more beautiful home but a better-protected one as well.
