Before making your roofing selection, take your time and check out the variety of products. Look at full-size samples of the roof covering you’re considering. You can also get information by looking at manufacturers’ brochures or visiting a house that is roofed with a particular product. Most roofing materials will come with some type of warranty, but they have limited value. Even the most comprehensive warranties will not cover all damages under every circumstance. Be sure to read the fine print.

Information compiled in cooperation with the National Roofing Contractors Association. Of course, you’ll want to carefully evaluate any contractor you consider so you can be confident the job will be done right. Your insurance company may be able to give you the names of qualified roofing contractors in your area.

Roofing products have changed significantly over time. The variety of choices in materials, appearances, and prices allows you to get the look you want without compromising quality. Above all, look for materials that will protect your home for many years.

  • Asphalt shingles are found on most homes in the United States and can be reinforced with either organic or fiberglass materials.
  • Fiberglass shingles last up to 20 years and have a Class A fire rating.
  • Metal, primarily thought of as a commercial roofing material, has become an attractive alternative for some homeowners. Not only do they last up to 40 years, metal roofs are also relatively lightweight and may have a Class A or B fire rating. But beware of their performance in hurricanes; debris can dimple metal permanently, unlike other shingles that can ease back into shape.
  • Slate tends to be long-lasting (up to 100 years) but also more expensive than other materials. And you would need someone with skill and experience to apply it, which can add to the cost. Another point to consider: slate is very heavy. Some roof structures are unable to support this type of roof covering. Be sure to check with a registered design professional before spending all of that money.
  • Tile is popular in some areas. Concrete tiles are more durable and can last more than 20 years, clay tiles are brittle and can be easily chipped or broken. And another thing: like slate, tile is heavy. If you are replacing another type of roof with tile, you will need to verify that the structure can support the weight. Also, heavy products can take longer to install, so labor costs may be significantly more.
  • Wood shingles and shakes are made from cedar, southern pine or other woods. Though some like their appearance, wood shingles and shakes perform only moderately well against hurricanes. Two other things to consider: 1) some local codes limit their use; and 2) unless they’re treated with a fire retardant, they may not have a fire rating.
