Metal roofs are the ultimate choice in long lasting, low maintenance roofing materials. These roofs protect your home for at least two times as long as standard shingle roofs, all while being environmentally friendly and heavy-duty against Mother Nature. Plus, they have the added bonuses of great curbside appeal, higher return on investment, and little maintenance throughout their 50+ year lifespan.
TPO is a single-ply white membrane used in both commercial and residential roofing. Due to TPO being a white membrane, it reflects heat instead of absorbing it and can stop heat buildup within the building. The main advantage of TPO is that it is typically the lowest material cost for single ply membrane roofs, costing less than EPDM and other types of rolled rubber roofing.
Ethylene Propylene Diene
EPDM, commonly known as a “rubber roof”, it is most used on low-sloped or flat roofs, typically on commercial buildings. However, it is also used on residential structures such as car ports and patio roofs. EPDM is one of the most inexpensive roofing materials around, membrane is very lightweight, so the roof deck will not need any reinforcement. In fact, one of the most efficient ways to install EPDM on a roof is to simply strip everything off the roof, apply an adhesive, then roll out the membrane. Because there are few seams, leaks are rare and a good quality EPDM can last 20+ years.
Shingles are designed to protect a home through decades of weathering with minimal upkeep, and are available in hundreds of colors and styles. In additional to offering a variety of style choices, asphalt shingles are also widely available and are easy to install. And while getting a new roof is by no means an inexpensive project, asphalt shingles are among the most affordable options available. In fact, if an existing structure beneath the roofing system is in good condition, new asphalt shingles can even be installed over older shingles, reducing the need (and cost) of a tear off of the old roofing.
