1) tiles. The tiles are very versatile and available in different colors and textures. A great advantage of using the standard tile is extremely long life, for example, it can take up to 50 years or more tiles. The tiles are also able to work well with a storm. They are resistant to fire, which would be particularly useful if someone has lived in an area that is prone to forest fires. A disadvantage is that the roofs are very heavy, so for this reason, a home structure could support additional support to adjust the weight. Installation costs can be very high. Although, if the roof is in place and at a high level, I do not really expect to have problems in the future.
2) Metal (Colorbond). Metal roofs are often seen in the basic properties of the Edwardian and Victorian. You may also be largely commercial real estate. A metal roof is energy efficient and versatile. It also has the potential to sign new buildings to provide accommodation in a period style. Metal roofs tend to be in the region of 30 years, which is based much less on a roof. If you are looking for the opportunity to install a metal roof, it is often necessary to use the services of a contractor, using qualified to set up a high level.
3) shingles. As shingles offer a very interesting and can come in different materials such as asphalt and fiberglass. Less common materials are wood and tile paper. They are not, however, be fire resistant for less frequent use. The tiles are light in structure and in the mounted state are disposed on a base in multiple layers. The life expectancy for the base tile is practically the same as that found in metal roofing for over 30 years when they take on the installation and maintenance.
