Types of Roofing
Our experienced roofing contractors work with a wide variety of roofing materials so you can choose exactly what you need and want for your home.
Affordable, easy to install, and with a lifespan averaging around 20 years, asphalt shingles are the most common roofing material in New Jersey. An asphalt shingle roof also doesn't require much maintenance, though it is more prone to damage from water, high winds, and punctures than other roofing material.
The standing seam metal roof is growing in popularity and offers excellent durability against even the harshest conditions. While the cost of metal roofs may be higher than an asphalt roof, they often last for decades with minimal maintenance needed.
Wood Shingles or Shake
Cedar or wood shingles, also called wood shakes, are beautiful, especially for historic, or historic-designed homes. While wooden shingles have a higher price tag compared to other roofing materials, and they require more maintenance, wood roofing offers a rustic look that you can't get from other roof materials.
Clay tile roofing is a natural option in which earthen clay is molded and fired into tiles. These are ideal in hot climates and work perfectly on a home with a Mediterranean or Southwest design. Clay tiles are about more than aesthetic, though, they're incredibly durable and can last up to 50 years.
When you want unparalleled durability, choose slate for your roof installation. This beautiful stone roof lasts 75 years or longer and requires little to no maintenance. However, it is significantly more expensive, and some homes may not be able to bear the excessive weight of slate roofing.
For homes with a low-pitched or flat roof, our roofing contractors can install flat roofing. Also called built-up roofing, this type of roofing is made from multiple layers of insulation, roofing felt, and asphalt for a thick, heavy-duty roof that is resistant to damage.
Engineered Rubber and Plastic Roofing
As an alternative to flat roofs, some homes with flat or low-pitched roofs can choose membrane roofing. Made from engineered rubber sheeting, membrane roof material is easy to install, maintain, and repair.
Choosing the Right Roofing Material
When it comes to choosing the type of roofing material for your home, you can weigh your options by asking three questions:
What Look Do I Want for My Roof?
Consider the architectural style of your home and see what kind of roofing material will enhance the beauty of your home. As we mentioned above, clay tiles enhance the look of Southwestern and Mediterranean homes. Craftsman-style homes look stunning with wood shingles, and standing seam metal roofing complements farmhouse-style homes.
However, asphalt shingles are the most common option and are also available in a wide variety of colors and styles, giving you more options to get the look you want.
What Is the Budget for My Roof Replacement?
Determining your budget will also affect the roofing materials you choose for your home as there is a wide range of pricing per square foot depending on the material used. To make it more affordable, we do offer 0% financing for up to 24 months.
What Features Do I Want from my Roofing Materials
Whether you want a green roof, an energy-efficient material, or a fire-resistant roof, it's important to know exactly what you want so you can narrow down your options. Slate tiles, natural wood shingles, clay tiles, and metal roofing are all eco-friendly roof materials and offer excellent energy efficiency. A slate, clay, or metal roof can also be resistant to fire, which could lower your home insurance rates and keep your family safer.
How Long Do I Expect My Roof to Last?
While you want your roof to last as long as possible, each material does have an average lifespan. Asphalt shingles have the shortest lifespan, averaging around 20 years while slate roofs are also called "lifetime roofs" because they hold up for 75 years or longer. Finding the balance between cost and durability can be a challenge.
We understand it can be hard to choose the right roofing material for your home. Our roofing contractors will work with you to help you choose the best option that offers the durability and look that you need while suiting your budget.
