Which Roofing Type is Right for You?

Whether you’re building a new house or in need of a roof replacement, one of the decisions to be made is picking a roof type. There are three common roof types to choose from for a residential home: asphalt, faux slate roofing shingles, and metal roofing. At All American Roofing & Restoration we are prepared to help you make that decision.

  • Asphalt Shingles – Asphalt roof shingles are one of the most common roof types used for a residential home. Asphalt shingles being the most inexpensive option, are made up of fiberglass placed between ceramic granules and asphalt. These materials provide waterproofing and strength to your roof. Asphalt shingles are a great option for any home.
  • Faux Slate Roofing Shingles – Faux slate roof shingles are a pricier option when it comes to roof options. These shingles can look very similar to asphalt shingles and weigh about the same. This option can be made of different types of materials such as clay, plastic, asphalt, or rubber. The benefit to choosing faux slate roofing is the warranty can typically last you 20-30 years.
  • Metal Roofing – Metal roofing being the most expensive option comes in a variety of options. You can purchase metal roofing in steel, copper, aluminum, and alloy strips. A con to metal roofing is it can be significantly loud during a rainstorm. However, the main benefit to invest in metal roofing is it can last you anywhere from 50-100 years.
