Asphalt & asphalt fiberglass shingles

Asphalt Shingles

Manufacturers have created asphalt shingles that imitate the look of wood and slate.

Although these terms are used interchangeably, most roof shingles used today are technically known as asphalt fiberglass shingles. The fiberglass mat embedded in the shingle provides an extra measure of strength and tear resistance.

These shingles are the most popular type of roofing for sloped roofs because they're affordable, easy to install, durable, and available in a wide variety of colors. Premium grades of "laminated" asphalt fiberglass shingles are typically warrantied for 50 years.


Wood shingles & shakes

Wooden Shingles

Wood shingles and shake roofs are beautiful, but expect more maintenance compared to an asphalt roof.

Wood shingles and shakes usually come from red cedar, Alaskan yellow cedar or Eastern white cedar. These evergreens produce wood that is dimensionally-stable and naturally resistant to rot and insect attack.

The main difference between shingles and shakes is that shakes are split from the log and have a rough, random texture; shingles have a smoother surface because they're sawed. A wood roof is expensive, and requires extra skill to install. That's why most people avoid installing this type of roof unless they're dealing with an historic house.


Rubber roofing

Although rubber has been around for a long time, rubber roofing is fairly new. That's because it's taken a great deal of chemistry research to develop a thin rubber membrane with the durability and waterproof qualities required of a roofing material. Rubber roofing is sometimes referred to as EPDM roofing. EPDM is an abbreviation for ethylene propylene diene monomer, the highly engineered compound used to manufacture most types of rubber roofing. Rubber roofing is used primarily on flat or low-slop roofs in residential buildings.

A "membrane roof" usually refers to a rubber or EPDM roof that is installed in a flat roof or a low-slope application.


Flat roofing

Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana's flat roof contractor

Because any flat roof is inherently prone to leaking, it's important to hire skilled installers whenever flat roofing is repaired, replaced or installed.

This roofing category is often grouped with “low-slope” roofing because many of the roofing treatments are the same. The most common flat-roofing materials used on residential buildings today include single-membrane systems like EPDM or rubber roofing, thermo-polyolefin (TPO) roofing and PVC roofing.

High-density Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF) roofing is a system that coats the roof with a continuous layer of foam insulation that can also serve as the finished roof surface (as long as a protective coating is applied over the foam).


Slate roofing

Slate Tile

Slate is king of roofing materials but finding someone who can install or repair it may be a challenge.

Most roofing slate used in the U.S. comes from slate deposits in Vermont and Pennsylvania.

Expensive to manufacture and tricky to install, this "stone" roof is among the most expensive available. When properly installed and maintained, a slate roof can last for 75 years or more.
