They come in a variety of colors and are able to be texturized, with stone-coated metal a popular choice among homeowners in Lakewood.

It’s not a bad pay-off for what you’re getting out of all metal’s great qualities.
Asphalt shingle roofing
Asphalt shingle roofing has grown in popularity because of its ability to resist and protect against all kinds of extreme weather conditions. Asphalt’s waterproofing capabilities are superior and in addition, it is also great at reflecting solar heat. What’s more, asphalt shingles come at a fraction of the cost of more premium options, though you will likely need to replace in about 20 – 30 years. Regular and proper maintenance is key to avoiding this, which is true for any roofing material.
Tile roofing is loved by homeowners for its longevity. Whether clay or concrete, a tiled roof can last up to 100 years. It can only afford this long lifespan thanks to its durability, resistance to fire, extreme heat, wind and heavy rain. What’s more, the aesthetic appeal of a tiled roof is unmatched. It must be noted that tiled roofing will set the homeowner back quite a bit more than other roofing alternatives, but its long life will ensure you reap the benefits of your investment.
