Types of Roofing & Shingles For Your Louisville Area Home
One of the most important decisions you’ll need to make for your home is the roof type to use during a roof replacement or an installation for a new home construction in Louisville. You will want to focus on choosing a roof type for your Louisville home that fits your budget but you’ll also want to consider how the material will look and how much maintenance and repairs it will require.
Some Louisville roof types will be cheaper than others, but paying more upfront can mean that you won’t be paying for very many repairs down the line. Still, while the repairs may be frequent for something like asphalt shingles, they’ll also be less expensive than the less frequent repairs of concrete tiles.
Our roofers can help you with the installation, repair, and maintenance of all types of asphalt shingle roofs. By far, asphalt shingles are the most common and least expensive roofing system. The asphalt shingles we install offer you different levels of performance.

EPDM is a very durable single-ply elastomeric membrane made of ethylene diene monomer. This is a durable synthetic rubber product that is commonly used on low-slope buildings worldwide. EPDM roofing is available in white and black.
It can be mechanically anchored to your Louisville flat roof with fasteners, ballasted with stone, or glued on. The material is very light, but it’s also very resistant to damage like scuffs and tears. Maintenance is fairly easy, and leaks can be easily and inexpensively repaired.
TPO is a single-ply membrane made for flat roofing systems. The thermoplastic polyolefin white membrane reflects heat and sunlight for improved home energy-efficiency.
TPO is available in various thicknesses to offer you different levels of performance. All the roofing products we carry offer you superior performance for long-term weathering.
Slate roofing is becoming an increasingly popular choice of roofing material for a number of reasons. It can give a sophisticated and attractive look to a home, can be specifically designed to match specific homes, and it’s relatively durable and low-maintenance.
Hard slate roofs can last up to 200 years, with soft slate lasting anywhere from 50 to 125.
The slate roof shingles we install are of premium quality and give you a one-of-a-kind roof. We carry styles ranging from shades of gray to the stunning deep gray with tan, brown, yellow, and rust accents throughout.
Metal roofs are the most durable roofing material there is. They won’t rot, crack, or leak, and they can’t be infested by termites or rodents. They can also withstand nearly any type of debris without being damaged. They can’t catch fire, will shed ice and snow, and can withstand winds of up to 160 miles per hour.
Standing seam metal roofing – The fewer seams a roofing system has, the less likely it is to leak. Standing seam metal roofs are made from long sheets of metal that your roofer assembles on-site.
Metal roofing shingles – Metal roofs have come a really long way since they became a popular roof type for homes. Today, you can get metal roofing shingles that look like other materials such as slate tile, wood shake, and clay tile.
