Shingle Roofs

Shingle roofs are the most common roof in the Huntsville area (and America, too). For a good reason, they are the most economical roof type that truly brings the best bang for your buck. There are many styles, qualities, and colors to choose from. Depending on the quality choice, they generally last from 20 to 50 years. Manufacturers make different shingle products with a year warranty attached to them. For example, a 30-year shingle or a 50-year shingle. The 50-year shingle generally has a taller (more material density), and stylish profile that gives the added benefit of hail and wind resistance.

There is a shingle roof for all budgets!

Pros:

  1. Low Cost: Shingle roofs are very cost-effective, making them one of the most popular roofing materials. 
  2. Variety of Styles: You can choose from a variety of shingle styles, colors, and textures to match your homes architecture and design. 
  3. Durable: Shingles are a durable roofing material, lasting up to 30 years with proper maintenance. 
  4. Easy to Install: Shingles are easy to install, making them a great DIY project for the handy homeowner. 
  5. Fire Resistant: Shingles are typically made of asphalt or fiberglass, both of which are fire-resistant materials.

Cons:

  1. Susceptible to Wind Damage: High winds can cause shingles to come loose, blow away, or be torn off. 
  2. Susceptible to Heat Damage: Extreme heat can cause shingles to curl and crack, reducing their lifespan. 
  3. High Maintenance: Shingles require regular maintenance and inspection to ensure they remain in good condition. 
  4. Susceptible to Ice Damage: Ice and snow can cause shingles to crack and become brittle,

Metal Roofs

Metal roofs are hands down the best-suited roof for the Huntsville weather. They shed snow easily and last a long time. Here are some reasons you should consider a metal roof:

Pros:

  1. Durable: Metal roofs are known for their durability and long life spans. They are resistant to damage from wind, hail, and fire and can last up to 50 years with minimal maintenance.
  2. Energy Efficient: Metal roofs reflect the suns energy, meaning they can help keep your home cooler in the summer, resulting in lower cooling costs. 
  3. Lightweight: Metal roofs are much lighter than other roofing materials, making them a great option for older homes that may not be able to support the weight of other roofing materials. 
  4. Low Maintenance: Metal roofs require little maintenance, unlike other roofing materials which require periodic replacement or repairs.

Cons:

  1. Expensive: Metal roofs are more expensive than other roofing materials, and installation costs can be high. 
  2. Noisy: Metal roofs can be noisy during storms and other weather events. 
  3. Expansion and Contraction: Metal roofs can expand and contract with temperature changes, which can cause problems with shingles and other roofing materials. 
  4. Susceptible to Rust: Metal roofs are susceptible to rust, which can require costly repairs.

Tile Roofs

Tile roofs are by far the best-looking roofs. They come in many different styles, shapes, and colors. It's a great way to add character to your house.

Pros: 

  1. Durable: Tile roofs can last up to 50 years with proper maintenance (However the roof tiles underlayment needs to be changed every 20 to30 years)
  2. Energy efficient: Tile roofs reflect the suns rays, which helps keep your home cool 
  3. Fire-resistant: Tile roofs are non-combustible and can withstand extreme temperatures 
  4. Beauty: Tile roofs come in a variety of colors and styles that can enhance the look of your home

Cons: 

  1. Cost: Tile roofs can be expensive to install and maintain -
  2. Weight: Tile roofs are very heavy and may require additional support 
  3. Installation: Tile roofs require specialized installation techniques and tools that can be time-consuming and costly.
  4. Maintenance: Tile roofs require maintenance every 3-5 years.

The downside to this roofing system is that it can cost more than the other options and it isn't always the best system for snowy weather.

Flat Roofs

Flat roofs are an excellent option for many types of buildings, from residential homes to commercial businesses. Flat roofs offer several advantages, including easy installation, minimal maintenance, and improved energy efficiency. Flat roofs are also known for their long life expectancy and minimal risk of leaks. When properly installed, flat roofs are highly durable and can last many years without requiring major repair or replacement. Additionally, flat roofs are often less expensive than other types of roofs, making them an attractive option for those on a budget.

A flat roof can be great for additions and patios for residential houses and saving space in commercial buildings.

Pros: 

  1. Cost-Effective: Generally, flat roofs are more affordable than pitched roofs. This is due to the simplicity of their design and the reduced labor and material costs associated with building and maintaining them. 
  2. Easy Maintenance: Flat roofs are easier to inspect and maintain than pitched roofs. They are also easier to access with ladders, making repairs and maintenance simpler. 
  3. Space Utilization: Flat roofs provide usable space for recreational activities such as rooftop gardens, patios, and terraces.

Cons:

  1. Pooling Water: Flat roofs are prone to water pooling, which can cause water damage and leaks. This can be mitigated with regular maintenance and proper drainage.
  2. UV Damage: Flat roofs are more susceptible to UV damage and degradation due to their lack of slope. This can be addressed by applying a reflective coating to the roof.
