Asphalt 3-tab Shingle Roofs
Asphalt Shingles have long been one of the most popular roofing materials.
Shingle Roofs are made of asphalt and fiberglass with a coating of colored granules for durability.
Ease of installation and affordability make these shingles the first choice for many homeowners.
Most asphalt shingles last 10-20 years. Shingles in higher quality are available that can last 50 years or more.
Asphalt 3-tab shingles have a long and trusted reputation for affordable roofing.
Asphalt shingle roofing costs approximately $1.50 to $5.50 per square foot on average.
Flat roofing offers similar costs and benefits and should be an additional roofing consideration.
Architectural shingle Roofs
Architectural shingles are comparable as they comprise the same materials.
An additional layer is added during manufacturing to increase durability and aesthetics.
An architectural roof will last for approximately 30 years.
Depending on the regional climate, metal roofing lasts for around 40 to 80 years.
Modern metal roofing products are available for almost any style of architecture.
Panels are often manufactured from steel, aluminum, and copper.
Aluminum is naturally resistant to corrosion, and other metals are treated to be so.
Metal roofs are a major investment as materials can range from $7.00 to $9.00 per square foot.
The expense can often be made up in reduced insurance costs and longevity, though.
Clay and slate roofing tiles feature the longest durability lasting 100 years or more.
Some of the most elegant roofing in the world is done with these materials.
The cost for tile roofing is also significant, however.
Materials alone cost around $4.00 to $10.00 per square foot.
Installation can be extremely expensive but less expensive alternatives like concrete improve affordability.
