Asphalt & asphalt fiberglass shingles
Although this type of shingle is known by many different names, the most common roof shingles used today are technically known as asphalt fiberglass shingles. The fiberglass mat embedded in the shingle adds an extra degree of strength and damage resistance.
Due to their affordability, ease of install, durability, and their wide variety of colors, This type of shingle has become the most popular type of roofing for sloped roofs. Premium grades of "laminated" asphalt fiberglass shingles are typically warrantied for 50 years. Some manufacturers have even created asphalt shingles that look just like wood and slate.
When installed properly, energy-efficient shingles can offer savings on energy bills. Reflective roof products can also reduce UV damage and extend the life of the roof. Many cool roof products qualify for energy rebates and incentives.
The term "composite" is used when referring to several different types of roofing systems. This is because it means that the roof was made with a number of different materials during the manufacturing process. One of the most common types of composite roofing used today is a simulated roofing slate that is made from resins and from rubber compounds extracted from recycled tires. This slate substitute offers a long lifespan and a lower installation price while providing the desired appearance of a traditional slate roof.
Composite shingles carry some of the industry's longest running warranties, making them a smart choice as an investment for your home. In fact, many asphalt shingles used today technically fall under the composite roofing umbrella.
Wood shingles & shakes
Wood shingles and shakes most often come from red cedar, Alaskan yellow cedar or Eastern white cedar. Wood Shingles are preferred to be made from the wood of evergreens because they are dimensionally-stable and resistant to rot and naturally repels insects. While wood shingles are very beautiful, they do require more maintenance than traditional roofing materials.
Homeowners that are not familiar with roofing materials may not know the difference between shingles and shakes. The main difference is that shakes are split from logs and have a rough, random texture; shingles have a smooth surface because they're sawed. A wooden roofing system is expensive and requires extra skill to install. This type of roofing is often used for historic homes and should only be left to the most experienced roofing contractors.
Although rubber is a well established form of roofing, rubber roofs are fairly new when compared to the other materials available. The roofing industry used a great deal of chemistry and research to develop a thin rubber membrane that also possesses the durability and waterproof qualities required to protect a roof from nature. Rubber roofing is sometimes referred to as EPDM roofing. EPDM is an abbreviation for ethylene propylene diene monomer, the highly engineered compound used to manufacture most types of rubber roofing. Rubber roofing is used primarily on flat or low-slope roofs in both commercial and residential buildings.
A "membrane roof" usually refers to a rubber or EPDM roof that is installed on a flat roof or a low-slope application. This system is popular on commercial buildings that have flat roofs. Very few houses utilize this design. However, membrane roofs can be used to seal flat roofs over garages and porches as well.
The term "flat roofs" are often put in the same category as "low-slope" roofs because they both use many of the roofing treatments. The most common flat roofing materials used on residential and commercial buildings today include single-membrane systems like EPDM or rubber roofing, thermo-polyolefin (TPO) roofing and PVC roofing. Metal roofing is sometimes used on low-slope roofs, but not on flat roofs.
High-density Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF) roofing is a system that is used to coat a roof with a continuous layer of foam insulation that will also serve as the finished roof surface (as long as a protective coating is applied over the foam). Unfortunately, all flat roofing systems are inherently prone to leaking. It is always important that homeowners hire skilled installers whenever flat roofing is repaired, replaced or installed.
Solar shingles & solar roofing
Solar shingles and solar roofing are examples of new "thin-film" photovoltaic technology referred to as "building-integrated photovoltaics," or BIPV. The designs of solar shingles come in the same standard size and shape that asphalt shingles do. This is so that they can be unobtrusively integrated into an asphalt shingle roof.
Solar roofing, or BIPV, can take the form of solar shingles or roofing tiles that contain solar cells. Solar shingles are far less obtrusive than bolt-on modules, but they are less efficient, too.
