Your roof is a vital part of your home. Not only should it keep out the elements for its expected lifetime, but the style and design of your roof are the crown of your home. The typical homeowner may only think of classical black shingles, and we certainly install those. But we also offer a few different types of shingles that can make your Utah home feel unique and even exotic. Here are just a few of the different styles of shingles we can install on your home once we complete a full inspection.
Metal shingles come in a variety of different colors and materials, including steel, aluminum, and copper. Not only are these shingles tough and durable, but they are also very long-lasting and resistant to damage from hail and snowpack. They also age in interesting ways that can add to the special nature of your home. For example, copper oxidizes after a while, becoming a light blue-green. This does not affect the quality of your roof, but it is certainly a way to make your roof stand out in your neighborhood!
The classic black shingles that we often install create a very airtight and overlapping pattern of asphalt that adds style and energy-efficiency to your home. It also makes your home very wind resistant. Contrary to popular belief, classic shingles are just as durable and dependable in extreme weather conditions as other roofing materials.
Tile, especially terracotta tile, is a fantastic way to bring a bit of Spanish architecture to your home’s design. Typically found in Southern Utah and all over the American Southwest, tile is shaped to form overlapping rows. Tiles are waterproof, adding to their practicality in Cedar City, UT; Hurricane, UT; and other places that may experience heavy storms during certain times of the year.
Typical passersby may see a roof protected by roof shakes and wonder about the ability to prevent a leaking roof. On the contrary, wooden shakes are just as dependable as other materials. Their rustic look is what makes them truly different from the rest. Each tile is variable in thickness, and each has its unique wood grains.
TPO Low-Slope Systems are for homes and commercial buildings that do not have slanted roofs. Instead, this waterproofing system protects flat surfaces, defending the roofing installed around ventilation and skylights.
