Types of Roofs
Roof materials have come a long way; today, there are more choices than ever beyond the traditional roof shingle. Each roofing material has its pros and cons. When you are deciding which roof is best for your home, our professionals can walk you through the options, so you make an informed decision that fits your situation.
Bondoc Roofing has experience installing and repairing many roof types on businesses and homes, including:
Metal roofing is also becoming more popular on residential homes. It is appealing to homeowners because of its lifespan of 40 to 70 years. It also requires little maintenance, improves energy efficiency, and comes in various colors and styles.
Asphalt is a great roof material option for a classic look. However, not all asphalt shingles are the same. There are three types of asphalt shingles: 3-tab, dimensional, and luxury.
3-tab asphalt shingles get their name from the three tabs that are on each strip. They lay flat and offer a classic look. 3-tab shingles are the most cost-effective asphalt variety and are one of the most economical roofing materials on the market.
Dimensional shingles also offer a classic look but are different from 3-tab shingles in that they are affixed in a seemingly random pattern and simulate the look of a wood shake roof. They are slightly more expensive than 3-tab shingles but come with a 30-year warranty.
Luxury shingles are the top of the line in asphalt shingles. They are larger than other types and are designed to look more like slate than traditional asphalt. They are more expensive than other types of asphalt shingles, but they can last up to 50 years.
GAF is the top roof material manufacturer in North America. They design and produce a variety of shingles that are high performance and affordable. More homes and businesses in the U.S. are protected by a GAF roof than by any other manufacturer.
GAF produces several types of asphalt roof materials, including:
Royal Sovereign is a brand of 3-tab asphalt shingle that is designed for performance. They are made using color lock technology that helps keep them looking new, and they offer the highest roofing fire rating. Royal Sovereign shingles are also crack and split resistant.
Natural Shadow shingles have a classic appearance and are also designed for high performance. Their timeless design creates a high-end look that will improve your home’s curb appeal and resale value.
Timberline HDZ is one of the most widely used brands in America. The line is so popular because it offers a combination of beauty, performance, and reliability. Shingles in this line are affordable and fit most budgets.
Armor Shield shingles are popular because they are built for resistance but are also aesthetically pleasing. They are made using a proprietary process of computer-controlled feathering to create shadow bands. The result is a shingle with depth and dimension that is unique to this brand.
