About the Different Types of Roofing Materials

Home Improvement,Construction
Anyone in the market for a new roof has likely found themselves at somewhat of a crossroads. While there are a variety of different things when making your new home roof, perhaps the most important is what type of roofing materials you’re going to be using. Indeed, there are a number of different options in this regard, each of which comes along with its own set of pros and cons. Determining the answer that is right for you and your home, however, is the first logical step towards having the perfect roof installed.

Finding the perfect roofing materials doesn’t have to be difficult. Here are just a few of the most commonly used materials in roofing today.


When it comes to popular solutions, environmentally friendly solutions for roofing materials, aluminum is up towards the top of the list. Aluminum comes with many benefits, each of which can have a positive impact on your roof buying experience. For example, aluminum is priced so that it is reasonable without sacrificing quality. Aluminum has an extremely high strength to weight ratio, which makes it an excellent option for those looking for a roof that will hold up to the elements without being heavy to the point of becoming a structural problem. Aluminum roofing isn’t going away anytime soon, and for good reason. It is completely recyclable but you won’t have to worry about that as these roofs last a lifetime.


Copper roofing is one of the more interesting options available for those looking to install a roof that is unique in character. There’s no getting around how brilliant copper can look when used as roofing material, and its strength means that you won’t have to worry about excessive degradation over time. Copper can tarnish, but many people see this not as an issue, but a benefit of using such an eye-catching material for roofing purposes. When it comes to aesthetics, copper is truly a strong competitor among top of the list of roofing systems.

Composite Shingles

Perhaps the most popular option on the market, composite shingles are used in a variety of different circumstances. Shingles come in a variety of price ranges and quality and can last for a fairly long time (generally about 15 to 20 years), but that’s not to say that composite is invincible. For those who live in areas that regularly experience storms, composite really isn’t the best solution out there. Shingles can fly off, and while they can be replaced, doing so can be frustrating and time-consuming. Still, those on a budget and looking for a good roofing option may find composite shingles to be a good fit.

Bear in mind, however, composite roofs can never attain the lifetime and eco-friendly status that is typically associated with metal roofing, so those who are looking for these factors should move towards a metal roof for best results.
