The roof of your home or property provides shelter,drainage and ventilation. The roof structure is covered with materials which overlap to make the roof water tight. Every roof has to be installed on a flat surface. If the roof decking is damaged, the sheathing will have to be replaced before applying any new roofing materials. It is important to consider the amount of maintenance required when choosing roofing materials.

When deciding on a new roof, there are a number of things to consider. The most important factors are costs and life expectancy followed by aesthetics and architectural design. There are the five common components to consider.
- Roof covering: metal, shingles, tile or slate and underlayment which protects the sheathing.
- Sheathing: a structural material like plywood that is nailed to the trusses that cover a house or building.
- Roof structure: rafters and trusses constructed to support the sheathing.
- Flashing: A weather tight sealant to prevent seepage
- Drainage System: redirects water from the roof to the surround ground areas. The roofs shape, slope and layout affect its ability to redirect water.

There are many types of shingles in the roofing industry. The available types of roofing shingles differ based on shape, size, thickness, color and material. Here’s a brief summary to help explains the difference between types of shingles commonly used on residential roofs.
As with clay tiles, concrete tiles come in a wide variety of styles, profiles, colors and finishes. Concrete tiles are created out of varying proportions of cement, sand and water. The materials are mixed and molded under high pressure, or cured, to reach the required strength, and may be finished with a colored material and a synthetic oxide additive. They generally have lugs on their undersides for anchoring to batten strips, and additional water locks, or interlocking ribs, on the longitudinal edges, which impede movement and prevent water infiltration.
Slate is a natural rock that is mined and cut to become slate shingles or a.k.a slate tiles. Slate is one of the longest lasting roof materials available. There are slate roofs out there that are over 100 years old and still holding up fantastically well up on the rooftop.
Solar Roof Shingles are the newest type of shingles surfacing all all over the world. They double as an energy producing system which is Eco-friendly and protection for your roof and depending where you live, you may receive a tax incentive for having them installed.

Today they considered a cost-effective alternative to traditional felt mats like Asphalt and are easy to install and fix saving you time and money.
