Types of Roofs for Your North Carolina Home  

Choosing the right types of roofs for your home can significantly affect how long it lasts, how much energy it will use, how much maintenance it will require, and how much money you’ll need to spend on repairs. At Camden Roofing, we have the experience and expertise to help you choose the best type of roofing system for your needs. We’ve completed thousands of roofing projects throughout North Carolina, throughout every type of weather and seasonal condition imaginable. We offer installation or replacement for various types of roofs, including: 

Tile Roof 

Clay tile roofs have been around since the early 1900s and were once used on houses built during this period. Clay tiles are still used today because they offer excellent longevity with very little maintenance over time. These types of roofs are made from fired clay tiles that are individually cut and laid over each other like scales on a fish — hence its name “tiled” roof.

Pros of Tile Roofs:

  • They have been around for centuries, so they have a proven track record of durability. In fact, they can last decades longer than asphalt shingles or other types of roofing materials for flat roofs. 
  • Clay tiles can be used as an accent feature on the roof or as part of a larger design scheme on the building’s exterior.
  • Clay tiles provide good insulation qualities because they keep heat inside during winter months and keep cool air out in summer months.

Cons of Tile Roofs:

  • Clay tile roofs are heavier than other types of roofs such as asphalt shingles or metal panels, which means they require more support from underneath to ensure that it stays firmly attached to your home’s structure throughout its life cycle.
  • Clay tile roofs cost more than other types of roofing material because they require skilled labor to install properly. While clay tile roofs may be expensive to install, they can save you money in the long run because of their durability.

When you choose Camden Roofing for your tile roof installation, you get decades of experience in the industry. We would love to help you get a top-quality tile roof installed on your home or business for years of beauty and security.

Wood Shake Roof

Wood shake has been used as a roofing material for centuries because it has natural weather resistance qualities such as flexibility and strength against impact damage from hailstorms and windstorms. These types of roofs also have a natural look that goes well with cedar siding or other natural materials used on homes in North Carolina. 

Pros of Wood Shake Roofs:

  • Wood shake roofs are flexible, which means they are less likely to crack under extreme weather conditions like hailstorms or high winds.  
  • Wood shake roofs are one of the most popular types of roofs for homeowners because they give your house an authentic, rustic look.  
  • Wood shakes are lightweight compared with other types of roofing materials, which makes them easier to install than heavier materials like clay tiles or slate shingles would be. 

Cons of Wood Shake Roofs:

  • Wood needs to be maintained more often than other types of shingles because it can deteriorate faster when exposed to elements like wind and rain
  • The biggest con of wood shake roofs is their tendency to get warped over time due to moisture damage or improper installation. If they aren’t installed properly, they may leak or even collapse under heavy snowfall or hailstorms.
