4 Durable Roofing Types to Consider for Your Home

Going through the roof replacement process can be a major undertaking for any homeowner; however, it is also a great opportunity to pick a more durable material for your home’s roof than you previously had. At The Carpenter’s Touch, we provide some of the best options for homes of varying styles. Whichever one you pick will surely last your home for many years to come.

Durable Roofing Types

1. Slate Roofs

This type of roofing material, while unquestionably durable as it can last for even more than a century, is quite heavy and can be difficult to repair. At The Carpenter’s Touch, we offer the GAF TruSlate® and Slateline® roofing options, which are beautiful and more affordable than traditional slate roofing.

2. Wood Roofs

Wood shakes can last you for decades, too. Wood makes for a classically beautiful home; however, it needs more constant attention that most other materials. If you prefer the more classic look of a wood roof but are concerned about the extra care needed to maintain it, the GAF Timberline®, Timberline HD® or Timberline Ultra HD® options may be the best for you.

3. Clay Roofs

Most Spanish style homes are designed with clay roofs that can last for a hundred years under the right conditions. If you have a similar style home and are looking for a more affordable alternative, you can give the GAF Monaco® line a try.

4. Asphalt Roofs

Although older asphalt roofs have been known to need replacement sooner than other roofing materials, the three-tab roofing shingle options from GAF have proven to be more durable alternatives to regular asphalt shingles. Both the Royal Sovereign® and Marquis WeatherMax® lines come with, at least, a 25-year limited, transferable warranty.
