Each Style of Roofing Has Its Pros and Cons
Shingle: A choice for roofing for over a century. Economical, clean finish, quick to install, easy to repair. Offers several options in colors and textures and can be layered over time for renovation.
Tar and Gravel (Built up or BUR): The most commonly used for flat roofs.
Metal: Metal roofs are durable, fire retardant and almost maintenance-free. They are also energy efficient; metal reflects heat and blocks its transfer into the attic. Used in areas of damaging precipitation. Often chosen otherwise for aesthetic value.
Tile: Often selected to finish a southwestern, Italian, or Spanish Mission home. Tile is long lasting yet more expensive. Tile does not rot or burn or be destroyed by insects. Installation requires several support materials and takes longer than other roof styles.
New Flat Roofing Materials: Plastic membranes and rubber based liquid coatings are growing in popularity because of their maintenance ease and durability. Bishop is advocate for this new material because of the extensive benefits to the home owner.
