This is the traditional choice for the majority of buildings.
Shingle roofing is far and away the most common type of roofing you’ll see in many communities. It’s one of the oldest forms of roofing that has evolved through the centuries as a way to protect the top of a residential or commercial building.
It’s worth noting that shingle roofs are now more common on residential buildings than they are on commercial ones, in general.
However, the shingle roof needs specific kinds of maintenance related to the individual shingles and the materials underneath. The shingle roof is a more complex build than some other types of roofing. It’s more vulnerable to certain kinds of deterioration over time. So that’s something worth looking at when you’re hiring a roofing company like Mitchell Roofing.
Tile and Terracotta Roofing
The bright orange-red roofing known as tile or terracotta is a high-end type of roofing that’s known for its visual appeal.
You’ll see a lot of this type of roofing on specific styles of homes including Tex-Mex, desert housing, mission style and European-style homes. Some of the biggest high-end properties have this type of roofing in place as an alternative to something like traditional shingle roofing.
Although this type of roof can last a long time, it also has its own maintenance requirements, including making sure that pieces do not break off of the roof over time. There may be other considerations as well regarding gutters and downspouts and other kinds of support systems for the property.
A modified bitumen roof is made of materials that use asphalt with rubber or plastic. This type of roofing is often found on flat roof tops, which can be applied to many types of commercial designs, but also urban and suburban residential buildings.
In residential roofing, modified bitumen is often part of a multi-piece or less traditional roofing style. The rugged yet flexible waterproof membrane that goes along with this type of roofing is a powerful deterrent for decay and precipitation damage.
Metal roofing is another modern alternative to shingle roofing. It may (or may not) be louder in terms of precipitation, but the metal roof stands up well to many kinds of wear, and with the right design and installation, it’s quite durable.
We install all of these kinds of roofing and more, so ask us about the pros and cons of each roofing type as we go. Make Mitchell Roofing your go-to for professional roofing service to keep your residential property in safe and livable condition.
