Deciding on which type of roofing material to go for can be quite a cumbersome exercise. Often this will be determined by the area in which you stay and the weather conditions there. Roofing materials for Port Orchard homes will need to be very durable to withstand extreme winds and sometimes even tornadoes.
Having worked in the area for years, Port Orchard Roofing is best placed to know which roofing materials are recommended for homes in the area. Below is our list of roofing materials for Port Orchard home styles.
Asphalt shingles is the most popular roofing material for good reason. For their affordability, they are also durable, can maintain a long lifespan and very versatile in terms of aesthetics. Certain types of shingles, like architectural shingles, allow for customisation in a range of shapes and sizes.
They are a common choice especially for sloped roofs, and work well for traditional Port Orchard home styles like Colonial Revival, Federal and Victorian architecture.
You’d be forgiven for thinking metal roofs are restricted to ugly, shiny silver boards. Metal roofing has progressed in leaps and bounds to become one of the most viable roofing options for Port Orchard homes. Metal is extremely versatile and is able to almost take the look and feel of most of the premium roofing alternatives, such as clay and slate for example. Stone-coated metal roofing in particular is an excellent choice for Port Orchard home styles.
Flat roofs apply for the more contemporary Port Orchard home. The materials commonly used for flat roofs include gravel and modified bitumen. In our experience, a flat roof is easier to maintain and repair than most other roof types. There is also no threat of losing shingles or boards as a result of strong winds, since the roof is a solid body made with materials impervious to winds.
