Residential Roofing FAQs

My home has a traditional pitched roof. What are my material options?

Composition Single Roofs

Shingle roofs are the most popular type of residential roof material due to their durability and color/style choices. Compared to other roof types, they are relatively inexpensive, starting at around $1.20 per square foot installed.

Clay Tile Roofs

Tile roofs can endure some of nature’s toughest elements. Yet, despite the harshness of weather, concrete and clay tiles can withstand wind, hail, rain, earthquakes and even fires. This durability enables manufacturers to offer some of the longest warranties in the roofing industry.

Single Ply Roofs

Highly durable
lightweight
highly reflective

Sheet Metal Roofs

Metal roofs beat out conventional roofing materials on a number of characteristics including life expectancy, weight, and ease of installation. In addition, they are highly fire resistant and reflect the midday heat.
