Shingles – Shingles come in all types; from asphalt to wood, to metal. They are all categorized as a shingle, but they do not all work the same way. If you choose the traditional asphalt shingle that can be found on many track homes across the US, you will get a solid roof that lasts you around 20 years and looks great. When you start to choose things like wooden or metal as your shingle material, you can see that this will change the amount of time they will last and how often you have to do maintenance.
Metal – Metal roofing is becoming increasingly popular among residential roofing because of its strength and longevity. It also brings a more modern farmhouse feel to a home as well. These roofs can last around 70 years on your roof which is a great bonus to a good looking roof.
