Types Of Roofs

If you are a home owner in Phenix City AL, Harris County GA and Columbus GA what type of roofing material best suits your needs? If you do not plan to live in your home for decades, go with less expensive asphalt shingles or if you do, you might want to consider a metal or clay tile roof because they will last about three times longer.

Metal Roofs

Metal roofing consist of different types of materials which are steel coated with zinc and aluminum among other alloys which are metals made by combining two or more metallic elements. One important advantage of metal roofs are the long lifespan which can be 50 years or longer depending on how it was installed and type of material.

Clay Tiles

This type of roofing has been around for a long time and has really good longevity. Many modern clay tiles look similar to slate, shake and wood and have interlocking which can help decrease installation time. Two different types are the flat and barrel clay tiles.

Asphalt Shingles

Asphalt singles are the most common residential roofing material because installation is rather easy and reasonable prices but the longevity is not the best, about 15 to 25 years life expectancy depending on whether they are architectural or three tab shingles. If you do regular repair and maintenance on asphalt shingles, the lifespan can be extended. The weather conditions where you live can also determine the lifespan.
