Rosemeyer Roofing Explains Different Types of Roofing Materials

Rosemeyer Roofing Materials

Rosemeyer Roofing installs many kinds of materials for residential and commercial roofing, including shingles, slate, tile, and metal roofing. Which type of roofing is right for you? In today’s blog, Rosemeyer Roofing explains the different kinds of roofing materials on the market today.


Composite shingle roofing is the most popular choice in American homes. More than 80 percent of residential structures have these kinds of shingles on them, and it’s a top choice for homeowners. Shingles last for decades, and they’re part of a layered waterproofing system that keeps leaks and weather at bay. As a certified GAF Master Elite installer, Rosemeyer Roofing specializes in this type of roofing material. GAF guarantees its shingles for up to 50 years, depending on the material.

Slate roofing is one of the most durable roofing materials available. Slate comes from stone quarries, and it makes flat slabs of stone. It’s often a gray color with natural variations in each piece. Slate looks fantastic on a home, especially a vintage home undergoing renovations. Slate can last for 75 years or more, meaning it’s a top choice for longevity. As you would expect, slate roofing is much denser than other materials. Rosemeyer Roofing recommends slate roofing for historic properties, so long as your roof is structurally able to handle heavier material.


Tiles come in clay or cement. Manufacturers form these tiles in a kiln. Tiles are popular in the southwestern United States because they are reminiscent of Spanish estates, especially with a terracotta, orange-brown color. Clay or cement tiles can last 100 years or more if you properly maintain them, which adds value to your home when you choose to sell or when your children inherit the house. Rosemeyer Roofing installs tiles in overlapping layers for a beautiful look in a wide range of colors.

Metal Roofing

Metal roofing is becoming a popular choice for homeowners. Rosemeyer Roofing installs overlapping metal panels, usually made of steel or aluminum, on the roof deck. Seams run vertically along the roof and allow rainwater to run down. Snow easily slides off and melts on metal roofs. Metal roofing comes in many colors, and it lasts 50 years or more when taken care of properly.
