If you need a new roof for your residential property or you want to update an existing roof you need to know the best material to choose and who to hire for the job. The good news is you have plenty of options, just make sure you select the most appropriate roofing material.

Rolled Roofing

If you need a fast and effective roofing option then rolled roofing is an excellent choice. Rolled roofing is a large format strip installed on the roofs of residential buildings, sheds, and outhouses. Rolled roofing is not only convenient to install it is also cheap and accessible.

If you need a fast and effective roofing solution then use Kelsey Elite Services. This material is made from minerals that are durable and will last for around fifteen years. Rolled roofing is probably the easiest roofing to install, but it still needs to be installed by a professional.

Built-up Roofing

Flat roofs pose a significant problem when it comes to roofing materials, that’s because flat roofs are prone to flooding and water issues. However, with the right type of roofing and the right residential roofing installer, you can install a roofing material that protects flat roofs.

Roofs that are flat or that have a very low pitch benefit from a BUR system installed by a professional. Several layers of roofing felt are built upon the roof and hot asphalt is applied. This makes the roof strong and watertight.

Membrane Roofing

Membrane roofing is another excellent choice if you have a flat roof or a low-pitch roof. Then again, membrane roofing is also useful for residential roofs of any kind. Like rolled roofing, membrane roofing is installed in large sheets that cover the roof and protect it from the weather.

There are several advantages to choosing membrane roofing for your residential property. Firstly, membrane roofing is affordable, it might not be as cost-effective as rolled roofing but it’s close. Secondly, membrane roofing is very good at what it does and lasts for many years.

Asphalt Composite

If you are in the market for a residential roof that looks residential and lasts for decades, an excellent option is asphalt composite roofing. This form of roofing is the most popular type in North America because it combines durability with affordability.

If you decide to install an asphalt composite roof on your property you need to make sure you hire professionals for the job. Asphalt composite roofing is made by putting down a fiberglass base and topping it with mineral granules and finally shingles. It’s a professional job!

Metal Roofing

If you live in a high snowfall area or an area that’s affected by wildfires, the best choice of residential roof is metal. Metal roofs are normally made from aluminum and interlock in panels to keep out moisture and precipitation. Metal roofs are not only affordable and long-lasting they are also environmentally responsible because the metal can be recycled afterward.
