Residential Roofing

Roofer Pros has residential roofing experts who have seen it all. We realize that most residential property owners are hesitant to invest in a new roof. They place adding a new roof to their home on the back burner and procrastinate.

Consider the following.

A typical roof lasts less than twenty years. Perhaps, your roof is near this age. Have you noticed odd changes in the shape and structure of the shingles on your roof? This is a sure sign that the roof is wearing out. Perhaps, you’ve noticed missing shingles or holes in the roof that let in the light or inclement weather. These are all signs that it’s time to install a new roof: attachment method, felt, roof jacks, proper ventilation, preparation work (overlaying old roofs or removing and replacing), life expectancy, best colors for the desert, cost, and warranty.

With the wide variety of roofing materials to choose from, the cost usually ends up being the deciding factor. While asphalt shingles are the most common choice when it comes to a new roof, there are other options. Some of which may, in the end, be a better choice.

Asphalt Shingles

Asphalt shingles account for about 80% of all residential roof surfaces. This type of shingle has several standards against which it is measured against, such as tear strength, fire resistance, and wind resistance. Asphalt shingles come in two basic forms, organic and fiberglass. Organic shingles weigh significantly more than their fiberglass counterparts, thus making them more resistant to wind damage and more durable all around.

Flat Roof

While flat roofs are significantly less prevalent than other roof types, they account for a large portion of roofing problems. The most common type of flat roof is tar, or tar and gravel. They can also be constructed with rubber (EPDM) or metal. EPDM or rubber roofs are a popular choice for low-slope roofing environments. When installed properly this roof type can be quite durable and long-lasting.

Metal Roof

A metal roof can be a great option for a homeowner that is looking to have their roof replaced. Metal roofs are extremely durable and can be molded into many unique shapes. They also come in a range of colors. Metal roofs are also significantly lighter than asphalt shingle roofs and can help to contribute to lower energy bills due to their reflective quality.

Tile Shingle

Clay or concrete roofing tiles are an excellent material to use because of their durability and resistance to pests and weather damage. With a properly installed tile roof, you can inspect it to last for up to 100 years, or possibly longer. In areas that suffer from forest or brush fires, tile roofs also offer excellent protection. Because this type of roofing material is produced from natural materials it is also environmentally friendly

Wood Shake Shingle

Wood shakes and shingles are usually made from cedar but may sometimes come from pine or redwood. The cost of wood shingles is usually somewhere between that of asphalt shingles and slate. Shakes are naturally durable roofing materials that possesses a high degree of insulation. Ones that have been pressure treated also provide a level of fire resistance and increased durability.

Slate Shingles

Slate is an expensive roofing material but very low maintenance and can last for up to 200 years. Because slate is a naturally durable material it stands up well against years of abuse from snow, rain, hail, and wind. Finding an experienced California roofing contractor to install or repair your slate roof is crucial. Working with a slate roof is very different than other types of roofing material and requires specialized skills.


Having a properly functioning gutter and downspout system is important as it helps to protect your home from damage by guiding water away from the foundation. The most common types of material for gutters and downspouts to be constructed of are aluminum, galvanized steel or copper.
