Roofing options are not limited to asphalt shingles in a traditional three-tab design. Top roofing trends are making roofs environmentally friendly and providing homeowners with different looks to choose from. When it’s time for a roof replacement consider some of these options.
Composition Shingles: Also known as architectural shingles, this version of asphalt shingles continues to become popular. They are heavier than three-tab shingles, better able to withstand high winds and designed to last. Available in a range of colors, composition shingles update the look of your home and increase curb appeal. A quality roofing company in Oklahoma City will be able to install this type of roof on your home.
Recycling: If you love the look of wood shingles but hate the thought of the extensive maintenance, consider using economically friendly shingles that are maintenance free. They are made from reinforced vinyl, recycled materials and cellulose fibers. They features a Class A fire rating, Class 4 impact rating, can withstand winds up to 100 mph and are freeze and thaw resistant. They are color consistent throughout and are UV protected to prevent fading. You can now enjoy the great look of wood shake shingles without any of the hassles of traditional wood.
Solar Shingles: It’s a solid idea that is gaining in popularity. The solar shingles look like traditional shingles and are installed on your home with traditional asphalt shingles. But these clever contraptions actually contain solar cells that harness the sun’s energy and help light your home. Additional work is required by electricians to get the necessary elements in place inside your home, but they represent a substantial savings on your utility bills.
Metal: Some people love the sound of rain on a metal roof, and these roofs continue to be popular. Metal roofs are long lasting and do not typically require any maintenance. They are lightweight and will not stress your roofing structure. They also reflect heat, helping you to keep the home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. Available in many colors, they provide valuable protection against both fires and hurricanes.
TPO for Businesses: Thermoplastic polyolefin is a single-ply material that is comprised of a synthetic rubber. It is an excellent choice for commercial and industrial applications because it is economical, strong and resistant to mold. Commercial roofing in Oklahoma City can provide your business with this level of protection.
