Types of Roofs
There are many types of roofing materials and systems, with the most common being a pitched asphalt shingle roof. This style prevails in the United States due to its durability, economical value, and style. However, other roofing systems are available and all provide unique benefits.
Asphalt Shingle Roofs
The average asphalt shingle roof lasts from 20 to 30 years if properly maintained. Shingles are available in endless colors and styles, and advanced technology has made them more durable than ever. Many asphalt shingles are designed to imitate the looks of classic wood shakes and slate roofs. Choose colors ranging from green to yellow to gray and black. Despite these advances, though, asphalt shingles have some drawbacks. One is their short lifespan compared to other materials like tile and metal.
There are tile roofs still standing that were built centuries ago in Europe. Modern tile roofs have long lifespans, easily lasting 80 years or longer. A tile roof will certainly last you the life of you home, barring any catastrophic events. Tiles are typically made from clay or concrete, which means your house may need extra structural support. Tile roofs are fireproof, exceed seismic load requirements, withstand strong winds, and even hail. Plus, they add unmatched beauty to any home. If you enjoy the Spanish-Mediterranean style, there’s barreled or rounded tiles. For someone a bit more traditional, you can choose tile that resembles stone and shingles. If you want to increase the value of your home, tile is a solid choice.
Most flat roofs are used on commercial buildings, but some exist in residential areas. Some homes have flat roofs on a patio with a shingle roof on their house, and some modern homes embrace the flat roof. Although commonly called flat roofs, they actually are slightly pitched so water will run off them. To prevent water leaks, these roofs require special coverings, usually made of rubber or a synthetic material that is waterproof. At Ariat Roofing, we use modified bitumen, which is a combination of asphalt, rubber, and various solvents.
Signs Of Roof Damage
When inspecting your roof for damage, look for obvious problems first by walking around your house. Especially after a major storm, it’s important to look for problems that could cause leaks. Climb up on a ladder and check for cracked or missing tiles or shingles, dents or holes from hail, and standing water. If you notice shiny spots on your shingles, make sure they feel solid and dry.
