Broken Arrow Roofing Materials
Whatever type of roofing material you have, there comes a point in every homeowner’s life when it’s time to bring in a professional roofing company. This is not a decision you want to make lightly, especially when it comes to more complicated roofing materials, such as slate and metal. When you partner with Outdoor Creations for your upcoming roofing project, you can rest easy knowing that you will have licensed and experienced roofing contractors on the job from start to finish. We have the skill and experience necessary to install and repair a wide range of roofing materials, including:
- Pros: Asphalt shingles, also referred to as composition shingles, rank high among the most popular types of roofing materials and are primarily used in residential settings. Asphalt is relatively inexpensive to install and is available in a wide range of colors, thicknesses, and shapes.
- Cons: Compared to other roofing materials, asphalt has a short life-span of about 20-30 years.
- Pros: Wood shingles are admired for their rustic beauty. Wood is also a renewable building material, making it a great choice for homeowners who are mindful about their impact on the environment.
- Cons: To prolong the life and maintain the look of your roof, wood requires more attention than other roofing materials. If not properly maintained, wood will splinter and become weathered in appearance.
- Pros: Slate is attractive, long-lasting, and environmentally friendly. It is also impervious to rot and insects.
- Cons: Slate can break when stepped on and is only suitable for the certain homes and structures due to its heavy weight. Although slate’s longevity will eventually outweigh the initial cost, slate comes at a high price tag.
Metal Shingles / Sheeting
- Pros: Metal roofing can be made from steel, aluminum, or copper and can be used to mimic other roofing materials such as Spanish tile, slate, or cedar shakes. Metal roofing has a 50 year life span and can standup to the forces of Mother Nature.
- Cons: Metal will need to be repainted every so often and the difficulty of installation places metal on the more expensive side.
- Pros: Tile roofing goes hand in hand with colonial Spanish architecture, and is one of the most durable and long-lasting roofing materials available.
- Cons: If you are looking to install tile, it is critically important that the structure of your home can support its weight.
- Pros: Comprised of mainly rubber and plastic, composite tiles can take on the look of more expensive stones, such as slate or concrete.
- Cons: Composite roofing is not currently recyclable.
- Pros: Thermoplastic Membranes will allow a flat roofing system to stand up to sun’s heat, UV rays, and severe weather.
