Quite possibly the most common type of shingle. This could be for many reasons, but the most popular being because it is the least expensive. Not only is the material the least expensive, but it is also easier to install. Typically these asphalt shingles are made of fiberglass that is impregnated with asphalt, and then surfaced with a sand-like material to prevent cracking and to reflect some sunlight. This type of shingle is expected to last at least 15 years, in some cases up to 25 years.
Aluminum, steel, copper, and more. These roofs are typically installed as shingles, but can sometimes be welded together as a sheet. This type of roofing is extremely durable, but can cost substantially more than traditional asphalt shingle roofs.
CEMENT AND TILE
Commonly seen as half cylinders. These are more commonly seen on Spanish Colonial or Mission style homes. While this type of material may look classy and sophisticated, it is often very heavy and can put a lot of stress on the structure of your roof.
Slate roofing is incredibly durable, probably the most durable of the bunch. However, due to varying areas of where the slate comes from, it is safe to say that not all slate is created equal. Slate typically will outlast even the fasteners that hold the sections together. It is common to find 100 year old slate being recycled for use on another building; mainly because it is expected last another century without any issues. The biggest downfall to slate roofing is its high cost. It can easily run 10-20 times more than traditional Asphalt Shingles.
