Best Roof Material for Your Home

Choosing the right roof for your house is a bit like picking out a hat—you want it to look good, fit well, and not fly off at the first strong breeze. With so many types of roofs out there, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. But don’t worry—with this overview of roof material types, you’ll be well-equipped to make an educated decision for your Oregon home.

Asphalt Shingle Roofs

Asphalt shingles are the most common roofing material in the United States. They’re attractive, budget-friendly, and easy to install. Plus, they offer a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors to suit different preferences and architectural styles. In terms of durability, these roofs can shelter your home for around 20 years with the proper maintenance. At the end of their lifespan, asphalt shingles can be repurposed into pavement for roads, boosting their sustainability.

Composite Slate Roofs

For added elegance without compromising on strength, composite slate roofs are a stellar choice. These roofs bring the traditional beauty of slate without the high cost, heavy weight, and fragility. This material is built to withstand tough weather conditions, including strong winds, large hail, and heavy downpours, making it a practical and aesthetic choice. Composite slate is also fire-resistant for your peace of mind.

Composite Cedar Shake Roofs

For that rustic or farmhouse look, nothing beats traditional cedar shakes. The only issue is that cedar is maintenance-intensive and may not last as long as you hope. That’s why composite cedar is the way to go. These shakes offer a natural wood look, even mimicking the split texture of authentic wood grain, but without the high maintenance and susceptibility to moisture and insect damage. Choose from different sizes and colors to suit your tastes. Then, sit back and relax while your maintenance-free composite cedar shake roof stays looking beautiful for years to come.

Composite Spanish Tile Roofs

If you’re dreaming of a Mediterranean vibe for your Oregon home, composite Spanish tile roofs can transport you there. These roofs add element charm and character, available in any custom color combination to suit your tastes. Beyond their aesthetic appeal, composite Spanish tiles are durable, lightweight, and fire-resistant. They also come in various colors, allowing you to customize them according to your home’s style.
