The Different Types of Roof Materials. There are different types of roof materials to choose from. There are also a number of pointers to consider in choosing the right roof material for you. There are times that the one that we want fails to meet the things in our checklist. It is best to get to know these different types of roof materials before deciding on what we should use.
If money is of the limitation, asphalt shingles would be best for you to consider. It is fire resistant, easy to repair and fits most residential homes. Do not worry about how it will look on your house. Asphalt shingles come in different designs and colors. The lowdown of this roofing material is that its life-span is quite short compared to other roofing materials. It can last for about fifteen to thirty years.
If durability is your major concern, you can choose between concrete or metal tiles. Both concrete and metal tiles can withstand horrible weather conditions. However, both are very expensive. They also are quite difficult to install yet their life-span is impressively long. They can last for more than fifty years.
If you want to look classy and you want something that could age gracefully, you might want to check on wood shingles. With proper maintenance, it can last from 30 to 50 years. The downside of wood shingles is that it is more prone to be burned, rot or get molds.
Roofs installed with concrete tiles are the way to go. All you need is good cement, water, quality river sand, and youâ€™re in business.
