Among the many roof replacement services we offer is helping you understand the types of roof coverings available. We will help you determine which of the roof replacement styles best match your home’s design, neighborhood, and weather protection needs, as well as your need for an affordable roof replacement.
Asphalt shingles are lightweight, easily installed, and affordable. They’re also one of the most popular types of roofing materials for homes. Asphalt shingles are often a homeowner’s choice because they’re easy to repair and versatile. Most asphalt shingles come in three primary grades: architectural, dimensional, and profile series. Dimensional and profile series treatments include a snap-lock ridge or rubberized granules to create a tight seal that prevents water from entering the home – a significant feature.
Tile shingles are of higher quality than asphalt shingles, and they’re also a very durable type of roofing material. There are two main types of tile shingles: clay and concrete. Both clay and concrete consist of natural materials such as stone, minerals, and volcanic ash. Clay roofs are typically more expensive than asphalt shingles, but they often last longer—as long as 100 years! Concrete tiles last around 50 years or more.
Cedar shingles are a natural product made out of wood that’s been hand-selected and kiln-dried. Nevertheless, they’re still less expensive than cedar shake shingles. Modern homes often display cedar shingles, but they can also look great on an older home and add a unique touch to a roof. When you install cedar roofing shingles, you can rest assured that their manufacture protects them from ultraviolet rays, moisture, termites, and rot.
Metal shingles are either copper or aluminum. They’re the most expensive type of shingles, but they can also look the best. Installing metal shingles on your roof isn’t quite like installing a typical roof covering; it’s more like putting up wallpaper. Metal shingles are a little bit tricky to install since you need to be very careful about how you lay them down. If improperly installed, metal shingles can be a fire hazard.

Frequently Asked Questions
Only a professional can help you sort this out. Replacement shingles might not match your roof properly because weather-worn shingles can be difficult to match with shiny new shingles. Sometimes we can partially reroof, say, where a fallen tree caused damage. The wisdom of this depends upon the number of underlying protective layers (two or more require total removal and re-layering). So it entirely depends upon the situation at hand: Frequently, a complete reroofing is most affordable in the long run, as complete removal of subpar sheathing will ensure that your roof entirely watertight.
You can completely replace the roof system or re-cover the existing one. However, if you have already had one re-cover installation, please note: building code requirements in your area might allow no more than one roof system re-cover before you need to install a complete replacement.
Commonly about 20 years. Some roof system types can later longer, such as slate, clay tile, and specific metal systems. Factors include local weather and environmental conditions, building and roof system design, quality of the roofing material, proper installation, and reasonable maintenance.
Look closely at various roofing manufacturer warranties to see what responsibilities and obligations each manufacturer will assume should their products fail to reach their expected lives.
The type of roofing shingle that’s best for your roof and budget depends on a few different factors. For example, how much extra weight does your roof need to support? How windy is it in your area? Are you installing new gutters at the same time or not? These and other questions are best answered by having an honest and thorough discussion with your Zen representative during our free estimate assessment.
This depends upon many factors, including the size and shape, and features of your roof. To get a good idea of the price for a new roof system, get at least three proposals from contractors in your area. Yet pricing is only one factor, and you must balance that with the quality of the roofing materials and the roofing company’s workmanship.
Each roofing material will have different grades and prices corresponding to a variety of styles and shapes. You need to look at the entire product range and choose based upon your specific budget and overall needs.
Roofing professionals have different levels of training, expertise, and craftsmanship. Look for a contractor who has a reputation for committing to quality work.
