Types of Residential Roofing

At Thompson Roofing, we have access to and experience in all kinds of roofing or materials including asphalt shingles, metal roofing, slate roofing, clay and concrete tile and cedar shake; our contractors have honestly done it all. So, no matter what kind of residential roofing you’re looking for, our experts are here to help.

Asphalt Shingles

Asphalt shingles are the most common and our most popular residential roofing product; especially in this scorching Southern California dry desert-like climate. Several studies have shown that 75% of Americans choose this product because asphalt shingles are affordable, resilient, and easy to install. For many, it’s an easy decision. We only use the highest quality asphalt shingles and our residential roofing experts will install them correctly so that your new roof is sturdy and reliable.

Metal Roofing

Metal roofs were commonly known for commercial construction and warehouses in the past. However, technology advancements have many more people looking into metal roofing for their residential roofing projects. There are a variety of options a homeowner can choose from. Some of the materials an owner can select are stainless steel (which uses recycled materials), copper and aluminum. A homeowner can choose to either maintain a traditional metal roof look or they can ask for a material that simulates wood shakes, shingles, tile, or slate. Riverside Residents may choose a metal roof because they are fire resistant, lightweight, and durable.

If you are considering metal roofing for residential roofing, you should also be aware that they are more expensive than traditional asphalt shingles, they may be noisy during a heavy rain and sometimes there is some inconsistency with the color matching and will require extra reinforcement to your roof. So, if you think you may want to go with this option, give us a call or email us and we can provide you with the best option for your unique roofing plan.

Slate Roofing

Natural Slate shingles (more like tiles) are the most beautiful, have colorful options (and beautiful patterns), longest lasting (100 years), don’t absorb water and are of the most expensive options for your roof. Slate shingles run from $10 to $15 dollars per square foot. However, if installed properly slate will last your whole lifetime depending on the environment. Some houses built 150 years ago still don the original slate shingles installed when built. Slate is a natural rock made from volcanic ash mixed with clay and are able to be cut into a 1/4″ to 3/8″ thick and have a few different lengths and sizes. Since California doesn’t get hail in most areas or get a lot of rain, slate shingles may be a great option for your home.

Clay and Concrete Tile

Thinking of Using Clay or Concrete Tile for your Residential Roofing job? Tile is a very durable material and an excellent fire resistor, but it is also extremely heavy, and they are twice as expensive than an option like asphalt shingles. So, because of the weight of these tiles, your roofing foundation will have to be reinforced like we explained above with metal roofing. Natural Clay Tiles are made in a kiln and concrete tiles are made from a mixture of sand and (portland) cement. If you decide to go with this option, it’s best to consult a professional roofing contractor so they can see if your roof can withstand the weight.

Cedar Shake or Wood Shake

Cedar is a hard wood and when people talk about wood shake, 9 out of 10 times they’re discussing cedar shake shingles. Not only are cedar shingles exquisitely beautiful, but they also have a lot of other amazing qualities like having a natural preservative, protecting it from penetrating wind, moisture and damaging UV rays, they are also naturally pest resistant and its composition is durable; keeping it from shrinking, expanding or cracking easily.

Since California is prone to fires, many cedar shakes are required to be treated with fire-resistant chemicals. However, if interested in cedar shake shingles for residential roofing, contact your city and find out if they are legal to be placed on your roof in your specific area. Altogether, Thompson Roofing’s mission is to give you the best protection for your home with an elegant roofing style that is both budget-friendly and beautiful.
