Shingle roofs come in a variety of styles, designs, and colors. There are 3-tab shingles and laminated shingles. Laminated shingles are typically referred to as dimensional or architectural shingles. Laminated shingles are a better-quality shingle than the 3 tab shingle. Shingle roofs are relatively easy to install and have average durability lasting 15 to 30 years.
Tile is one of the most attractive and durable materials you can use on your roof. When properly installed, tile roofs can last for decades: up to 30 or 40 years! When compared to the longevity of asphalt shingle and other materials, it’s no wonder that tile is considered to be one of the strongest and most weather-resistant materials you can choose.
Foam roofing takes skill and requires a seasoned and professional installer to ensure the roofing membrane is prepared properly and that the foam is sprayed in a consistent and uniform manner. Spraying in swales and proper pitch is important for water shedding. A quality foam roof takes skill which requires practice. Don’t allow someone to practice on your roof. Always turn to a professional roofing company and a licensed roofing contractor.

Timing is important, insurance companies can have a time limit in your policy to report a claim, some as short as six months.
