Cedar Shingle Roofing

Just like any roofing material, a cedar shingle roof has advantages and disadvantages. However, homeowners that opt for a cedar shingle roof feel that the pros far outweigh any cons.

This type of roof offers an energy-efficiency not seen in other types of roofing materials. It acts as a natural insulator, and a cedar shingle roof can improve the efficiency of HVAC systems at two times the rate of asphalt shingles. This allows homeowners to heat and cool their homes more efficiently and save on utility bills.

Another advantage of a cedar shingle roof is the beauty of the shingles. They add an organic and natural element to the home’s roofing, and the shingles age majestically turning a silvery gray color as the years go by. As a roofing material, cedar shingles are quite long-lasting, and they are resistant to severe weather such as wind from hurricanes, hail, snow, and torrential downpours.

Cedar shingles do require regular maintenance, however. Without regular care, they are prone to growing a layer of moss, mildew, or mold. There are preservatives that can be added to the cedar shingles to lessen the effects of this natural process.

Cedar Shingles can be a less budget-friendly option, but with the durability and long lifespan, the cost is usually considered to be worth it. If you are considering a cedar shingle roof, contact Roof Pros NW, who as a leading roofing contractor, can share with you everything you need to know about cedar shingles.

Metal Roofing

Metal roofing is a popular roofing material in the Northwest, and you can see many Seattle area homes with the standing seam style of a metal roof. Homeowners appreciate the longevity of this durable material. In fact, a high-quality metal roof can easily last over 50 years.

If properly installed, a metal roof will not corrode, crack, or rust. Plus, it can be quite impact-resistant and withstand wind gusts over 100 miles per hour. A home with metal roofing is better capable of surviving sparks from wildfires or being struck by lightning.

Due to the fact that it reflects solar heat, metal roofing is considered an excellent choice for homeowners wishing to install a more energy-efficient roof. The bouncing back of the solar heat can substantially lower energy usage when cooling the home in the summer months.

Another factor for those that are looking for an environmentally sound roofing material worth considering, is the recyclability of metal roofs. A new install can be made from recycled materials, and when it is replaced, the old materials can be recycled as well.

Heavy rainstorms can be a little noisier on a metal roof than on some of the other options. However, many people enjoy the pitter-patter of raindrops.

If you’re ready to protect your home for years to come with a long-lasting metal roof, contact Roof Pros NW today.

Composition Shingles

Composition shingles are a very common type of roofing material and are found on more than half of the homes in the Seattle area. They are also considered a budget-friendly option. Created from a fiberglass layer surrounded by asphalt and minerals, composition shingles are embedded with granules.

The three-tab style is the most common and the least expensive option when it comes to composition shingles. However, there are other styles, textures, and shapes available. Homeowners can choose from a selection of colors to best suit the decor and architectural style of the home.

Composite shingles are a fairly long-lasting option, and they can be flame resistant which can protect your home from catching fire.

A well-installed composite shingle roof can help insulate the home and decrease energy bills. Plus, they shield the interior from UV rays.

If a portion of a roof made from composition shingles is damaged, it can be repaired without having to replace the entire roof. In addition, individual shingles can be replaced if needed. The shingles are resistant to moss growth and mold growth. While mold and moss don’t structurally damage the composition shingles, it does cause the roof to look unsightly and unkempt.

Local roofing contractor, Roof Pros NW, can help you get your new composite roof installed in Seattle and the surrounding areas.

Flat Roofing Systems

A flat roofing system usually consists of two layers, the top-coat, and the underlayer. This style of roof is often seen in commercial buildings or outbuildings. However, it can also be used on residential homes. Homes that are created in a modern or futuristic style often have flat roofing systems.

Many people opt for a flat roofing system because it is such a cost-effective option. The materials used to create this style of roof are generally inexpensive. Plus, installation is usually more affordable as well because it is a less risk-involved install.

Flat roofing systems can usually be installed rather quickly and with greater ease. Plus, if a property owner wants to add things later on, such as solar panels or satellites, it is very easy to do so.

One of the biggest advantages of a flat roof is the extra space that it provides on a piece of property. The roof can be the ideal spot for placing HVAC units. Plus, it can be designed as an extra living space.

Many multi-family apartment buildings will use a flat roofing system as a place to add a terrace, outdoor lounge, or a BBQ area. Some even add gardens or pigeon coops to their roofs!
