Top Roofing Types

They only last for about 20 years before needing to be replaced. Due to their light weight, they are more susceptible to damage.

Stone-Coated Iron

Stone-coated steel is a more expensive option than traditional asphalt shingles. However, it can last up to 70 years due to its superior durability. This roofing option is popular because of its beautiful look and variety. Stone-coated steel is a reflective option that reflects the sun’s rays, and it is also an energy-efficient choice. Stone-coated steel has a high upfront cost.


Tile roofing is available in concrete and clay. Many property owners prefer tile roofing because of the elegant look it provides.
