A roof that is made up of asphalt shingles can have a life expectancy of up to 30 years, depending on the grade of shingles used.

Different styles and colors are available so that you can choose the right look for your home.  This roof type is a mid-weight material and is one of the most inexpensive to install.

Fiberglass Shingles

These shingles are lighter when it comes to the weight than a traditional asphalt shingle.  They also come in a variety of different styles and colors, and are relatively inexpensive to install on your home.

This roof type is surprisingly lightweight and looks crisp and modern.

Tile Roofing

Miami boasts of many homes built in the Spanish style of architecture. Tiles are perfect for this style of home.

Made of either clay or concrete a tile roof can last for 50 years or more. Since tiles are extremely heavy, your current home structure should be assessed to make sure it can handle the weight of the tiles.

Wood roofing allows your home to have a natural look.  This type can last 30 years or more, but should be monitored for optimal life potential. Pressure treated to last and to provide fire resistance, wood shingles may be a good choice if you are looking for style and function.

Flat Roofs

A flat roof or a roof with a low slope will need a professional low slope roofer to install the right products so that your roof is protected and lasts.

There are many different products that may work for your flat roof. Take the time to discuss the options with your roofing contractor.
