What Type of Roof Is Best?

Home Improvement

The material used for roofing has changed over the years. From sod and clay roofs to modern synthetic and composite shingles, the desire to create a shelter from the sun, wind, and rain has always been the basic goal. Fireproofing has also been an important factor when choosing which type of roof is best. When you factor in durability and cost, there are many things to consider when deciding which material to use. It's a good thing that there are expert roofing services in Lawrenceville that can tell you everything you need to know about roofs. For now, take a look at a few different types of roofs available these days and the benefits and disadvantages of each. 

Tile Roofs

Clay or concrete tile roofs have been around for a long time. Tile rooftops add a lot of style to a home, especially the highly recognizable Spanish tile roofs that emulate the famous Missions of California. They have the advantages of being non-combustible, durable, and energy efficient. They are also heavy, can require stronger framing, and they can be expensive. 

Asphalt Shingles

Because they are economical and easier to install, asphalt shingles are the most popular roofing material used in the United States. It's also possible to reinforce these shingles without changing their appearance. Asphalt shingles come in a variety of colors, but their downfall includes short life spans they may not insulate as well as other roofing materials.


Like tile roofs, slate is expensive, heavy, and requires extra framing, but if you're okay with that, slate offers a few advantages over other roofing materials. Slate is durable, fire resistant, and even recyclable. Slate roofs are also quite attractive and elegant with multi-colored shades that work well with fancier home styles. 

Metal Roofing

For cabins, bungalows and cottage-styles, a metal roof can look quite attractive. This roofing material is relatively more expensive than others, but it is very durable, lasting longer than asphalt or wood roofs, and it stands up to extreme weather conditions.  

Synthetic Roofing

Synthetic Roofing works well for all types of home styles, is not as heavy, expensive, or fragile as natural roofing materials, but has not been as time-tested as traditional roofing materials.  

Wood Shingles 

Wood shingles have been popular for many, many years. They offer a home a very rustic look, but often require replacement. Another disadvantage is that fire codes prohibit them in some areas. They can, however be coated with a fire-resistant material. 

If you're looking to install a new roof or just need to have some repair work, roofing services in Lawrenceville are available for all your roofing needs.
