Asphalt shingles are the most common and popular residential roofing material, as they offer excellent versatility, durability, and affordability. Modern asphalt shingles are a composite material that includes a fiberglass reinforcement to prevent tearing. Asphalt shingles are offered in three tab and architectural styles, each of which has some advantages:
As an added benefit, roof repair can be handled relatively easily with asphalt shingles. The roofing pros at Ernie Smith & Sons Roofing can help you decide what type of asphalt shingles are the best fit for your home depending on your needs and budget.
The gold standard. Slate roofing is the best roofing material available, but installation is pricey.
When it comes to roofing materials, nothing beats slate. Slate shingles are slivers of rock that are cut in the shape of shingles and installed as the roofing material. Slate is a versatile material that has unmatched appearance and durability, making it a fantastic choice for any home.
However, slate roofs are very expensive and very heavy, sometimes requiring additional work to the structure before installation. Slate can be difficult to work with as well, meaning an experienced and skilled contractor is a necessity. If you're interested in slate roofing, the experts at Ernie Smith & Sons Roofing can help you find the best solution and give you a high quality installation.
