These aren’t the old flat, tinned roofs of the past. Today’s metal roofs are attractive, energy-efficient and light-weight. They may be made from steel, aluminum, copper, or zinc alloy. They come in shingles or sheets that feature standing seams, which offer an added layer of protection against moisture.
Cedar shingles and shakes provide a classic wood look to the roof. Cedar is naturally mold, mildew, and insect-resistant, but has a low fire tolerance unless it is treated. They can be left to weather naturally or be painted. Cedar requires more maintenance than any other type of roofing material but it makes up for it in looks.
One of the oldest roofing materials known to man, slate remains popular for good reason. It is extremely durable and wind and fire-resistant. It’s a 100% natural material, but very heavy and usually requires roof reinforcement. Best for steep-sloped roofs.
Heavy, but long-lasting and low maintenance, tiles may be made from clay or concrete. They provide excellent fire resistance and can be made to resemble traditional clay tiles, wood shakes, or slate.
