In Rapid City SD, roofing professionals can provide you with a lot of high quality products that will help ensure your home is perfectly protected during all seasons. Tiled roofing is one of them, and has rapidly become one of the most popular choices for homeowners in the region.
The main problem with roofing tiles is that they can be quite fragile. Compared to other products such as asphalt shingles or wood shingles, a lot of tiles can break easily, although it does depend on the type of material they are made from.
Many South Dakota and Rapid City roofing companies today use heavy cement or slate tiles to ensure that your roof will be as resilient and will live as long as possible.
Concrete, cement and slate are all much heavier than clay tiles, as well as most shingles. They offer excellent fire protection, and can have life spans in excess of 50-60 years (over 100 for slate).
Aside from a lifetime warranty on most of these materials, you can also expect beautiful color, texture and design choices, excellent resilience and insulation, lightweight options – for concrete fiber tiles – and even synthetic and metal alternatives that could be much cheaper, while retaining many of the protective properties of cement or slate.
Rapid City SD roofing contractors like those found at Interstate Roofing can make sure all these benefits and many more will be at your disposal before you have to make your choice, assisting you in your quest to get the best possible long term quality at an advantageous price.
