Billings Construction Picks the Best: Why Specialty Roofing?

Here are the benefits to be had from each type of specialty roofing:

Tile Roofing provides the home with a uniquely classy aesthetic. But not only that, tile roofs come in a variety of colors to deliver the perfect look. Tile is known to last for around 50 years, sometimes more; it’s impervious to boring insects and rot, and is fire-resistant.

Slate Roofing is made of natural stone and is known for its beauty as well as its long lifespan. The material has a naturally impervious surface, is low maintenance and, if installed properly, will provide excellent fire protection. Because slate is heavy, it can also hold up well against strong winds.

Metal Shake and Standing Seam Metal. Metal roofing in general is known for its durability and longevity. It can cost a little more than your average asphalt roof, but when amortized against its lifetime, the metal roof is well worth the expense. Among the advantages of this type of roofing are:

  • Metal is tough – very tough. The sheet metal in this type of roofing can hold up well against nearly everything, except perhaps extremely heavy falling branches. A severe hailstorm might also lead to a few dings and dents on the material.
  • With expert installation and proper maintenance, metal roofing can last between 30 to 50, sometimes even 70 years.
  • In general, the US Environmental Protection Agency considers all metal roofing in general as a “cool roof”. This is because you can paint metal roofing with colors on the lighter end of the spectrum to prevent solar heat gain and improve energy efficiencies.
  • Metal comes in a wide selection of colors: grays, browns, forest greens, earthy reds – giving you a range of options more varied than you might find with composite/asphalt shingles.

Standing seam metal roofing is made of continuous panels that run from the roof’s ridge down to the eaves. The seams between panels are connected by fasteners which are raised above the level of the metal roofing. Fewer seams on this type of roofing mean fewer potential entry points for moisture. Moreover, because the fasteners are concealed, you only see a smooth continuous ridge extending from top to bottom.

Standing seam metal roofs work well on both contemporary and country-style houses. Its smooth, straight lines lend your structure a modern “industrial” flair – a sleek look that’s far cry from the rippled tin roofs of the past.
