Which type of Roofing is Best for YOUR Home? There’s no one easy answer to this question. However, if you’re replacing an existing roof, or building a new home, the primary considerations are typically the look and style you want to achieve, and of course, budget. Fortunately, there are a few options available combined with many variations in style and color to assure we’re able to help you achieve the perfect look for your home.
Asphalt Shingle Roofing
While each type of roofing has its benefits, asphalt shingle roofs remain the most popular here in Vermont. Asphalt shingle roofing is the most affordable, readily available and comes in a wide variety of colors and styles to compliment your home’s style and color palette.
Asphalt shingles also stand up very well to our harsh Vermont weather, with a lifespan of up to 30 years, and offer exceptional long-term warranties; up to 20 years including labor through the CertainTeed SureStart and/or the GAF Master Elite® program.
Composite Shingle Roofing
Composite Shingle Roofing (also known as synthetic shingles) is the second most commonly used roofing material and is a great alternative to asphalt shingles. Made from a mixture of several roofing materials including fiberglass, recycled paper products and asphalt among others, composite shingles are fire-resistant and known for their ability to repel moisture.
Composite shingles can be a great ‘green building’ alternative since they are made from recycled material including post-industrial plastics and hemp fibers. It’s actually the blending of these different materials that lends itself to the longevity of a composite roof. Most composite roofing has a warranty of 30 to 50 years, with some manufacturers offering a lifetime guarantee.
Standing Seam Metal Roofing
Standing Seam Metal roofing has increased dramatically in popularity over the past several years, and for good reason.
As the name implies, the seams “stand” above the roof – raised off the roof itself; which reduces the potential for moisture to penetrate the seam. Additionally, standing seam metal roofs have no horizontal seams at all.
Standing seam metal roofs also offer unparalleled durability with a lifespan of 30 to 50 years. Their sleek look combined with the wide variety of colors available can give your home a contemporary, elegant flair.
Rubber Membrane Roofing
Rubber membrane roofing is most commonly used on commercial buildings with flat roofs. While there are a few different types of rubber membrane materials, EPDM (ethylene propylene diene terpolymer) is the most widely used in low-slope, and flat roofed buildings.
At Blue Sky Roofing our professional installers are experts in the installation and repair of rubber membrane roofing and are skilled at working with EPDM, as well as PVC and modified bitumen membrane roofing.
Rubber membrane roofing on large flat roofs on expansive commercial and industrial buildings in Vermont’s severe climate require an attention to detail during installation that Blue Sky Roofing offers with unparalleled expertise.
Our team is well-versed in working closely with building and maintenance managers, architects, and contractors on repair and maintenance to large-scale commercial projects.
Slate roofing is known for its natural beauty and unparalleled durability. A properly installed slate roof can and should last a century, or longer. Many would say that slate roofing is an art form, and we would agree. The meticulous labor, challenges inherent to working with natural stone and cost result in few homes and modern buildings utilizing slate roofing. As a result, most general contractors and many roofing contractors have little working knowledge of slate roofing.
Blue Sky Roofing is proud to offer an experienced slate roofing team with years of experience in creating masterfully installed hand-laid slate roofs for numerous historic buildings and residences throughout Vermont.
When it comes to appearance, slate roofing offers a tremendous variety of options in thicknesses, sizes and colors.
The weight of a slate roof is significant, so if you’re considering installing one on your existing home, a structural evaluation should be performed in advance to ensure your home is suited to hold the weight of this type of roof.
