Remodeling Spotlight: A Closer Look At Roofing Styles
When you’re ready for a new roof or you want to make a visible change to your roofing system during a home remodel, the first step is to choose a style that suits your home’s design and your personal style. The pitch, or roof angle, also plays a major role in the best type of roofing system for your home. The steeper the pitch, the more visible your roof is from the ground. There are several roofing types appropriate for homes in the local area.
- Shake – Featuring the rustic look of hand-split wood, shakes are made of composite materials in a variety of earth tones.
- Asphalt Shingles – A traditional roofing system, 3-tab asphalt shingles creates a colorful pattern suitable for shallow and steep pitches.
- Rubber – Providing protection against water penetration for homeowners with a flat roof, rubber roofing systems are typically made of recycled materials in rolls or shingles and come in a variety of colors and patterns.
- Architectural Shingles – Similar to the asphalt-shingled look, these durable three-dimensional shingles have a more sophisticated appearance. They work well with a steep pitch, especially the slate composite.
