What Are the Different Types of Roofs?

Here at J-Tech, we specialize in installing and repairing most kinds of roofs and are experts with popular roofing materials like asphalt shingles and green roofing systems from leading high quality manufacturers. In addition to the ever-popular asphalt shingles, we also offer metal roofs and standing seam metal roofs, which have slightly different styles and fastening systems.

What Type of Roof is Best?

The best roofing type will likely depend on your home’s aesthetic. You may like to have a traditional asphalt shingle roof or clay tile roof. If you’re looking for something more durable and easier to maintain, a metal roof or standing seam roof might be the right choice for you. If you want to save on energy costs, we can install solar panels to help get you started.

With so many types of residential roofs to choose from, you’re sure to find one that suits you. Whatever your roofing project is, you can count on J-Tech, Nebraska’s Exterior Experts, to help you get it done!

What Type of Roof Shingles are Best?

There are many roofing shingle types to choose from! Asphalt shingles are certainly the most popular roofing material and when installed correctly, can provide many years of protection from weather and leaks. They will eventually break down and need maintenance, repair, or even replacement. Clay shingles offer better protection with a longer lifespan. Clay shingles do not rot and offer circulation from the air that passes beneath the tiles to help keep your roof cool. For the ultimate in rooftop protection, maintenance, and durability, metal roof shingles can’t be beaten. Once installed, metal roof shingles need very little maintenance and can last around 50 to 60 years.

Whether you’re going for something traditional or new, J-Tech is your go-to for expert quality roofing. Contact J-Tech, Nebraska’s Exterior Experts!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the cheapest roofing material?

Out of asphalt shingle roofs, metal roofs, and standing seam metal roofs, asphalt shingles have the lowest upfront costs. Nevertheless, even though the materials are more expensive for a metal roof, they are much more durable and will save you money in the long run if you invest.

How long will a standing seam metal roof last?

A standing seam metal roof is one of the most durable types of residential roofs. They can last anywhere from 40 to 80 years if they are well maintained. Due to their impressive durability and longevity, a standing seam metal roof is also likely to increase the value of your home if you’re planning to sell.

What type of roof is best for solar panels?

Both asphalt shingle roofs and metal roofs are perfectly compatible for solar panel installation. If your house has asphalt shingles, then our team will fix studs into the roof which we’ll use to keep the panels attached. If you’re adding solar panels to a standing seam metal roof, no drilling is required, as the panels can be attached directly along the edges of the metal panels.
