Common Roof Types for Your Home

Home » Roofing Contractors » Common Roof Types for Your Home

When we take a seat with homeowners to discuss roofing types, one of the most typical concerns has to do with the style of the new roofing. From shingles, could we go to metal roofing? We have cedar shakes– could we replace them with fire resistant shingles? At Mountain State Roofing we enjoy talking about all roofing types, however helping homeowners change their house’s appearance through a new roofing is constantly a rewarding conversation.


Fiberglass-asphalt shingles are the single most popular roofing product in the United States. This is because of their economy at installation, their ease of application and their wide options in color, design and quality.

Mountain State chooses to utilize Owens Corning or GAF shingles for domestic installations. These two remarkable brands each been available in several grades, or product lines:

  • Fundamental– affordable, three-tab shingles
  • Much better– mid-range, cost effective shingles
  • Architectural or Designer– featuring unusual profiles, cuts and shadowing for dramatic impacts

Metal roofing can mimic almost any look a homeowner wants, from metal shingles to shakes to standing joint vertical panels. One enormous benefit of metal roof is its resilience– a metal roof can last 50 years or more. Though the up-front expense is higher than a shingle roofing’s expense, many metal roofs last 3 times longer than shingle roofs.

The special coverings, color availability and energy effectiveness of metal roofing systems make them very appealing for house owners who prepare to stay in their Tennessee or Alabama homes for many years. Among roofing system types, metal roof turns up often and makes sure to transform your home’s look.

Tile and Shake

Tile roof can be concrete or ceramic, and can look like flat rectangular shapes or half-round pieces reminiscent of Spanish or Asian roofing systems. Though resilient, tile roofing is costly and prone to damage if walked upon incorrectly.

Cedar and redwood shakes are another alternative some house owners examine. These natural choices can take paint or stain well, however rate short on fire resistance. They also both require more maintenance than metal or shingle roof.
