If you own a home or are considering hiring a general contractor for your next construction project, choosing the right kind of roof is an important decision. There are so many different types of roofs available on the market today that trying to decide which one fits your unique needs can be overwhelming. From Asphalt shingles to metal and tile, there’s no shortage of materials and designs to choose from–but which one is best suited for your property? Let’s take a deep dive into the pros and cons of different roofing options so that you can feel confident in selecting the perfect type for your home!

1. Asphalt Fiberglass Shingles

Asphalt fiberglass shingles are one of the most popular roofing solutions. It’s easy to see why: they generally require less maintenance than other shingle types, cost less upfront than their alternatives, and come in an incredible variety of colors and styles to fit any home design. However, asphalt shingles don’t last as long as some other shingle types due to color fading, denting from hail or debris falling from trees, and fast wear in rainy climates.

2. Wood Shingles

Wood shingles, asphalt’s older, more elegant friend, can add a unique style and texture to your roof, with a range of natural hues and finishes to choose from. On the other hand, wood shingles also require frequent maintenance in comparison to some more durable shingle materials.

3. Composite Roofing

With the industry’s longest warranties, composite roofing is the material of choice for a growing number of American homes. As the name suggests, composite roofs can be made up of a number of materials, commonly resins and rubber compounds extracted from reclaimed tires. Looking similar to slate, the low prices and excellent longevity make this an excellent choice for most.

4. Slate Roofing

Although there often seems to be a shortage of slate (or contractors willing to install and repair the product), it remains king of roofing materials. Hailing from Vermont and Pennsylvania, this more expensive roof can last 75 years or more when properly installed.
