We consider clay and slate tiles and asphalt shingles as traditional roofing materials. These have adequate lifespans, considerable costs, and introduce the homely aesthetic every homeowner and homebuyer wants in a property. However, traditional roofing is sometimes expensive, yet it only has a limited lifespan and durability. For example, asphalt shingle roofs can only last for 30 years at maximum.

Additionally, they require additional roofing maintenance to make sure no moss growth is present. Furthermore, addressing cracks on the roofing material — along with missing tiles or shingles — are essential. These situations make inspections and maintenance services by top-notch Littleton, CO roofers an essential service.

However, any homeowner who wants to use a high-slope roof with exceptional property aesthetics cannot go wrong using traditional roofing materials. Other alternatives — such as single-ply and SPF roofing materials — introduce excellent options that extend your roof’s lifespan and capacity beyond 50 years (just like metal roofs). However, it’s better to use traditional roofing materials if you’d like to raise the value of your property.

On the other hand, these alternative modern residential roofing materials are excellent if you own a flat or low-sloped roof home. However, you can never deny the advantages of traditional roofing on high-sloped properties. Asphalt Roofing Manufacturer’s Association has a great list of benefits to using asphalt roofing. If you need exceptional roofers in Littleton, CO, you can always count on us at Ropa Roofing. We can provide you with the highest-quality roofing service you need.
