Looking for the right type of roof for your home? Howard Roofing offers the most popular roofing materials on the market, one of which will best suit your home. What options are available to you and how are they different from each other? Let’s take a closer look to find out.
Asphalt shingles are the most popular roofing material in the US. Affordable, energy-efficient and easy to install, asphalt roofing can be installed over existing roofs, making them ideal replacement choices for those with limited budgets.
The tougher brother of asphalt shingle roofing, fiberglass shingle roofing is relatively new to the market. Instead of the felt base found in typical asphalt shingles, fiberglass shingles have a layer of non-porous fiberglass. While fiberglass costs a bit more than standard asphalt shingles, expert roofers swear by it because it boasts slightly better durability.
Architectural Roofing Shingles
Take your typical fiberglass shingles, reinforce them, add a 3D contour to them, and you get architectural fiberglass shingles. They work similar to fiberglass shingles, but instead of a flat roof surface you get something with a more dynamic look.
Built-up Roof (BUR)
A built-up roof is a type of flat roof that is composed of alternating layers of asphalt, gravel and reinforcing fabric layers. A built-up roof is the most economical type of flat roof, and is popular among commercial and residential properties alike.
EDPM and TPO Roofing
A professional roofing contractor like us can also install other types of flat roofing such as EDPM and TPO roofing. These single-ply roofing systems have risen in popularity in recent years thanks to growing trends in cost-effective and contemporary home designs.
