Roofing Methods

Perhaps one of the cheapest roof installation methods, asphalt shingles are waterproof enabling it to withstand rain storms and snow storms of any kind. There are two kinds of asphalt shingles and they are organic and fiberglass. Organic Asphalt shingles are made out of usually paper or another organic compound such as wood bark and then asphalt is added to it before it is put on the roof. With Fiberglass shingles, you get one made out of glass bits and then covered with asphalt. Unlike organic shingles, with fiberglass, the shingle will be more resistant to fires as compared to its organic counterpart.

With Cedar Shake Shingles you get a wooden shingle that is flat and thin. It was originally used in the creation of Cape Cod style houses in the 19th century and is still used today. In a shake wooden shingle, you are getting one that comes from wood logs. They are cut carefully so the wood doesn't dry out when you apply it to a shingle. If you're looking for a more old-fashioned shingle then this is the roofing type for you.

This is for a flat looking roof as opposed to a more sloped roof you find in most houses. You'll find this method in most commercial buildings but you can find this method in some homes. The main purpose of a flat roof is to weatherproof it. Usually, when dealing with a flat roof the water that falls on the roof immediately falls into a gutter or onto the ground. Two popular types of flat roofing are asphalt and metal roofing. A metal roof is cheaper and will save you money as compared to other roofing types and an asphalt flat roof will provide a sense of peace if you're worried about the weather getting to your roof. However, you could get an asphalt roof but it has a tendency to wear a lot over time, and as more precipitation goes over it the weaker it gets.
