A vast majority of homes in the US use asphalt roofing as their roofing materials, partially because they are the most cost-effective option. But that’s not the only reason, and there are plenty of great reasons to choose asphalt roofing for your Indianapolis home.
Asphalt shingles require more maintenance and repairs than other kinds of roofing materials, but those repairs will be much cheaper than they would be for other materials as well. If you’re on a budget, asphalt shingles can be the best choice for you.
Flat roofing can be a very distinctive part of any home’s architecture, but they can unfortunately also be difficult to work with. Unlike sloped roofs, flat roofing systems won’t naturally drain water, and they often require the help of other systems in order to properly shed water. There are newer types of materials becoming available, and while they may cost more upfront than other roofing materials, they’ll save you money in the long-run on the cost of maintenance and repairs.
Because of its very low water absorption index (0.4 %), slate is a top rate roofing material. Damage due to extreme frost and breakage caused by freezing temperatures are problems that ordinary roof shingles encounter. Because of its low water absorption index, slate roofing shingles would not suffer from the either frost damage or breakage due to cold weather.
Slate shingles are also incredibly attractive and aesthetically versatile.
Tile roofing is among the most popular kinds of roofing in the Indianapolis area. It provides a sophisticated and attractive look to any home, and it can be custom designed to match the specifics of your home design and your décor. Plus, tile roofing is extremely durable, and it doesn’t require very much maintenance at all.
Tile roofing can be made from clay, which is baked at different temperatures for different periods of time in order to produce different densities. The tile may also be glazed, and there are surface treatment available that can produce a number of profiles, styles, finishes, and colors. Installation methods depend on the style of the roofing, whether it’s two-piece, one-piece, interlocking, or flat.
Metal roofing systems can offer your home a number of benefits. They’re safer, more durable, and they have incredibly long life spans. Plus, they require almost no maintenance, and very infrequently need repairs.
Wood Shakes Roofing
Wood shakes offer a natural look with a lot of character. Because of variations like color, width, thickness, or cut of the wood, no two shake roofs will ever be the same.
Wood offers some energy benefits, too: it helps to insulate the attic, and it allows the house to breathe, circulating air through the small openings under the felt rows on which wooden shingles are laid.
DaVinci polymer shake and slate tiles look incredibly natural, and are engineered for durability. They also come with a 50 year limited warranty. Every Tile is 100% recyclable and designed to withstand severe weather, resist fading, and be impervious to rot, mold, and mildew.
