There are many different types of roofing materials. The experts at Alexander Roofing can recommend the type of roof best for your home or project. Below is a quick overview of the most common roofing materials and their uses.
• Shingles: Shingled roofs are the most common and least expensive roof material. They require seasonal maintenance and typically last between 10-30 years.
• Flat Roofs/EPDM Rubber: Most typically used for commercial projects, this roof material is resistant to damaging winds, UV rays and hail.
• Hydrostop: A Hydrostop roof has several layers of a waterproof coating that is reapplied as problems arise. The material is flexible and UV resistant, offers protection from strong winds and lasts up to 25 years.
• Metal: Metal roofs require more upfront cost but last longer and with less maintenance than shingled roofs. They are also the optimal choice for including solar panels in the installation.
