Sloping roof coverings can be made of a variety of materials. Professional roofers use traditional wood shakes or classic ceramic tiles, but also a series of modern and very modern materials.
The choice of the most suitable for your roof depends, of course, on the insulating qualities and durability of the material, but also on its final aesthetic look, on the harmony between the appearance of the house and the appearance of the roof.
Roofing materials continue to evolve, manufactures keep improving them, so it is important to keep up with these changes, to be able to choose what is best for your home.
According to a local Colorado Springs roofing company featured in Top 100 Roofing contractors, these are some of the latest roofing products to hit the market
Stone coated metal shingles
Metal shingles are already premium materials, but stone-coated metal shingles are even better and expected to last up to 70 years. They are beautiful and versatile, durable and energy-efficient. What more could you want?
Synthetic shingles mimic natural wood shakes and shingles, but come with the properties and maintenance benefits of composite materials: they will not split, curl, or fade.
Zinc roofing options include panels and standing-seam that are highly resistant weathering and corrosion, as well as self-healing. They potentially last 100 years or more.
Porcelain Roof Tiles
These tiles are frost-resistant, able to withstand 110 mph wind rating and impervious to water. Using digital printing technology, they are manufactured to look just like other high-end materials, but are more affordable.
