A roof can provide shelter over your head. A good asphalt roof can do more than that. A properly installed shingle roofing system will keep out wind and water all of which might damage your eaves, walls, and ceiling.
Pros of Roofing Shingles
Asphalt roofing shingles are the least expensive of roofing materials. They come available in a wide variety of colors and style options. Asphalt shingles are normally used on pitched roofs and are one of the easiest to install.
Metal roofs are lightweight, weighing about one quarter as much as tile roofs and nearly half as much as asphalt shingles, they are a very popular option these days. Metal roofing is generally more expensive than asphalt roofing, but cheaper than the other roofing options.
Pros of Metal Roofing
Metal roofing in Columbus is fully recyclable! If there is ever a fire in your home, knowing that your metal roof is fire retardant helps bring that peace of mind back. Metal is better than tile or asphalt because it holds up longer and is not as fragile.
Tile roofing lasts a long time as it will not rot nor will it burn. Tile roofs create a "southwestern style" appearance to homes. Clay and sand-cast add to the beauty of the roof. They are very fragile though which cannot be walked on.
Pros of Tile Roofs
A flat roof needs to be looked after more so than a pitched roof does. This is due to not having a filter for water to spill off. Standing water and other debris can damage this type of roof very easily and disrupt its lifespan.
Pros of Flat Roofs
- Usable space
- No trusses or rafters
