When it comes to having a new roof constructed there are a few key things to consider, such as the material, style, color and cost. Also, with so many choices in roofing materials available now, a recently trending consideration is the material’s ENERGY STAR rating or whether or not the product contains recycled content (we call it the “Green Rating”).
Below is a list of our most popular roofing materials to assist you in determining the right roof for your new home:
Over 3/4 of American homes have asphalt shingle roofs because of their low cost, resiliency and ease of installation. They are available in fiberglass and organic – fiberglass being the the roofing material of choice for both homeowners and contractors, because it is thinner, lighter weight and has a higher fire rating than the organic varieties, which generally means it carries a longer warranty. Standard asphalt shingles are available in an wide variety of colors, longevity options, and price points.
- House Style: Work well with any architectural style
- Cost: $.80 to $1.20 per square foot for materials
- Life Span: 15 to 30 years
- Green Rating: Least-green roofing option
Wood Shingles & Shakes
Wood shingles and shakes do not offer the practicality or lower cost of asphalt shingles or other modern roofing material, but the aesthetic appeal of traditional wood is certainly hard to deny. Wood shingles are cut by machine giving a more crisp appearance, while wood shakes
are hand-split and have a more rustic look. Made from spruce, treated pine, redwood, cedar, southern pine and other woods, these roofs will last about the same as asphalt shingles and are biodegradable. The downside is that wood shingles and shakes require periodic preservative and fungicide treatments to keep them from warping, cracking, fungus and mildew.
- House Style: Ranch, cottage, bungalow, historic & contemporary
- Cost: $100 to $165 per square (10 x 10 area = 100 square feet = 1 square)
- Life Span: 30 to 50 years
- Green Rating: A natural, biodegradable product, but very high maintenance, poor fire rating and tendency to rot, split and mold.
*A number of different materials are available from various roofing product manufacturers that offer the same rustic beauty of wood, while providing a more durable product at a much lower cost. Ask us for more information!
Clay & Concrete Tiles
Clay tiles are very heavy, requiring additional roof framing, but they are non-combustible and very durable. Though most tile roofs are utilized in warmer areas, a version can be used that withstands the freeze-thaw cycles of colder climates. Compared to concrete, clay tiles
offer a roof life of up to 100 years and add significantly to the resale value of a home; the downside is that clay costs twice as much as concrete and is difficult to install and repair. Concrete tiles are very versatile and provide greater protection to the homeowner. Because these tiles come in so many variations of styles, colors, shapes and textures, they don’t look like tiles at all. Shingle, shake and slate are just a few tile varieties.
- House Style: Southwest, Mediterranean, European, Mission
- Cost: $300 to $600 per square (10 x 10 area = 100 square feet = 1 square), or $700 – $1,000 per square for clay
- Life Span: Concrete = 50+ years; Clay = 100+ years
- Green Rating: Clay is one of the greenest roofing choices. Concrete is highly energy-efficient and can be made from a sustainable mixture.
One of the most beautiful, and aesthetically pleasing shingles, slate will last for hundreds of years and is easy to repair and recycle. Although very heavy, a slate roof is non-leaching and will last for hundreds of years. It is easy to repair and recycle.
- House Style: Colonial, French, Chateau
- Cost: $550 to $1000 per square (10 x 10 area = 100 square feet = 1 square)
- Life Span: 50 – 100 years
- Green Rating: Extremely sustainable. Quarrying and splitting slate has minimal impact on the environment.
*Ludowici offers two different slate tile profiles – LudoSlate and Lexington Slate. Both are walkable, easier and less expensive to install than natural slate, and more durable than synthetic slate. With a wide range of color options, Ludowici’s interlocking terra cotta slate tiles offer all the natural beauty of slate without the maintenance of other alternatives.
Metal (Steel, Tile, Copper & Aluminum)
Metal roofs are some becoming an increasingly popular choice for Colorado homes. Available in copper, aluminum and stainless steel, these durable roofs are solar reflectant and offer premium insulation, often lasting twice as long as wood or asphalt. Another plus is that metal roofing is much lighter than most materials and resistant to the sometimes harsh, Colorado weather.
- House Style: Bungalow, mountain, ranch, contemporary, cottage
- Cost: Start at $100 per square (10 x 10 area = 100 square feet = 1 square) up to $600 for coated steels and copper
- Life Span: At least 50 years
- Green Rating: Very green – highly energy-efficient and environmentally friendly.
Fiber-cement is composite of concrete, clay, and wood fibers, making it both durable and fireproof. Because of their comparatively light weight, they don’t need extra-heavy roof structures and are available in a variety of textures and colors.
- House Style: Any Style
- Cost: $500 per square (10 x 10 area = 100 square feet = 1 square)
- Life Span: 20 to 30 years
- Green Rating: Recyclable, non-leaching
The pitch or slope of a roof is a critical deciding factor in many of the roofing decisions. Different types of materials can be used, depending on the pitch or slope of a roof. Pitch also plays a large role in attic space, drainage options, weather durability, design, and difficulty of construction and maintenance.
- Flat Roof – Anything under 2:12 pitch
- Low Slope – 4:12 pitch to 2:12 pitch
- Steep Slope – 4:12 pitch to 21:12 pitch
