As a house, one of the biggest components is the roof. It’s the main reason why your family keeps warm, cool or dry and safe. This is one of the most important parts of the house and it can be made of several materials that have different characteristics and benefits that we should consider so we will talk about each type up next. We have installed several types of roofings in Long Island, so can tell you everything about it!
These are the ones that we can find in many houses as it’s the cheapest one and can last for more than 10 years if it’s taken care of correctly. One of the main benefits of this kind of shingles are the colors in which they come in and also they don’t have to have a lot of maintenance for it to be in great conditions.
This is one of the greatest types of roofing due to its benefits and it stands out as the most aesthetically appealing for a lot of people that are in the business looking for houses to buy.
Asphalt Roll Roofing
This type of roofing doesn’t come as the type that has shingles since it is sold in rolls and has the same construction materials as the one found in traditional shingles. Although it might seem a good option for having on a garage or outbuilding roofs, this doesn’t last as long as other types of roofs and it’s not very appealing.
This is one of the best types of roof we can have in our house. Slate has always been a good piece of work for people since it splits into flat sheets on its own and can make a great barrier against the weather conditions that take a toll on the structure.
You can see these type of rocks on different areas and people that live where they are found usually apply this as their protective barrier. This type of roofing lasts over 100 years, but one of its main flaws it’s that is very heavy and it needs to be installed in a roof that has its support strengthen against extra weight so it doesn’t break or have any issues.
The biggest flaw is its price since it can be three times more expensive than installing an asphalt one, but if we know what we’re getting then the cost is justified.
Clay and concrete tiles
This is a mixture of the asphalt shingles and the slate shingles. These come at a higher weight but they have wonderful colors, shapes and sizes including flat shapes to mimic slate and wood.
If you want to get this for your house you better call and expert so he can install it. Whenever you want to have an inspection make sure you don’t walk on the roof since they’re fragile and you can leave the roof without protection if you do so.
