What Types of Roofing Materials Are Available to Homeowners?

Wednesday, September 6th, 2017 by Danny Peterson

Homeowners have a variety of roofing options to choose from including asphalt shingle, slate, tile, metal, and even solar. Asphalt shingles, however, remain the most popular choice for roofing. They are popular because they are low in cost, readily available, and they come in a variety of colors and styles. Additionally, asphalt shingles come in two main roof shingle types: fiberglass and organic.

Fiberglass shingles consist of a fiberglass mat that is covered with asphalt to keep water out, protecting your other roof components, and your home. The asphalt is topped with ceramic granules that reflect UV rays.

Organic shingles are typically made from recycled felt paper. Like fiberglass shingles, this type of roof shingle also has a layer of asphalt to make them waterproof. Organic shingles are more durable than fiberglass but are more expensive to purchase.

Ultimately, the type of roofing materials you opt for is a major factor in the cost of replacing your roof.  If you are interested in learning about all of the roofing types that are available to you, contact Integrity Home Pro today.
