Your Options in Roofing Materials

The strengths of each roof sometimes overlap. Each one also has characteristics that make it unique. 

Here is a broad, top-level look at the advantages that come with each roof type: 

Metal Roofs

There are several different types of metal roofs. Generally speaking, their advantages include: 

  • Durability: Metal roofs are known for their ability to hold up well in extreme weather conditions, 
  • Energy efficiency: Metal roofs have excellent thermal reflectivity, reducing heat absorption and keeping the building cooler. This can lead to energy savings.
  • Lightweight: Metal roofs are lightweight compared to other roofing materials, which reduces the load on the building overall.
  • Fire resistance: Metal roofs are inherently fire-resistant, offering an added layer of protection for homes and buildings. 

Roofing Shingles

Shingles are a popular choice, thanks to benefits like these: 

  • Versatility: Roofing shingles come in a wide variety of styles, colors, and materials, allowing homeowners to choose a design that complements their architectural style. 
  • Affordability: Shingles are one of the most cost-effective options for residential roofing. They are widely available, making them relatively inexpensive compared to other materials. 
  • Low maintenance: Shingle roofs require minimal maintenance, making them convenient for homeowners. 
  • Weather resistance: High-quality roofing shingles offer excellent resistance to wind and rain. Some shingles are also designed to resist algae and mold growth.

Modified Bitumen

Modified bitumen roofing is asphalt-based, with rolls or membranes that are applied using adhesive. 

The reasons property owners choose modified bitumen often include: 

  • Weather resistance: Modified bitumen roofs are also highly resistant to extreme weather conditions, including high winds, hail, and heavy rain. 
  • Flexibility: These roofing materials are rubberized, providing exceptional flexibility. This flexibility allows for greater resistance to temperature changes, reducing the risk of leaks and damage.
  • Longevity: When properly installed and maintained, modified bitumen roofs can provide a durable and reliable roofing solution.
  • Easy installation: Modified bitumen roofs are available in rolls that can be applied using various techniques such as torch-applied, cold-applied, or self-adhered methods.


A choice that has been around for centuries, tiles have stood the test of time and continue to be popular. 

These are just a few of the reasons why: 

  • Aesthetics: Tile roofs are renowned for their timeless beauty and architectural appeal. They come in a wide range of colors, styles, and materials.
  • Longevity: Tile roofs have a long lifespan, often lasting 40 years or more with proper maintenance. 
  • Durability: Tiles are highly resistant to weathering, including UV radiation, wind, rain, and hail. They are also fire-resistant and can withstand extreme temperature fluctuations.
  • Energy efficiency: Tile roofs have strong thermal insulation properties, reducing heat transfer between the roof and the interior of the home. 

Single Ply Roofing

Single-ply roofing is a single layer of membrane that covers the roof surfaces. There are several different types of single-ply material. 

The advantages of this roof type include: 

  • Energy efficiency: Single-ply roofing membranes, such as TPO (thermoplastic polyolefin) and PVC (polyvinyl chloride), often have reflective properties that reduce heat absorption.
  • Durability: Single-ply roofing membranes are resistant to UV radiation, chemicals, and punctures, giving reliable protection for the underlying roof structure.
  • Versatility: Single-ply membranes can be installed on various types of roofs, including flat and low-slope roofs. They can be applied to different substrates such as concrete, metal, wood, and existing roof systems, making them suitable for both new construction and retrofit projects.
