The interlocking panels of stone coated steel look a lot like slate, clay or shingles and resist damage caused by heavy rains, uplifting, hail and freeze-thaw cycles. Stone-coated steel can withstand gusting winds of up to 120 mph, and many other adverse weather conditions. Although many assume it is a heavy material, metal roofing is actually lightweight at 50 to 150 pounds per square. They’re an economical, effective choice for wet, windy regions or areas prone to wildfires. Some stone-coated steel roofs are warrantied for the lifetime of the house.

Slate roofing has a lifespan of 100-150 years and it’s not uncommon for a slate roof to outlive the actual house. Because slate is natural stone it won’t burn, its waterproof, resists mold and fungus and is also environmentally friendly. Another desirable trait of a slate roof is the curb appeal. Slate is effective in wet climates but is expensive, heavy and may be easily broken when stepped on. Keep this in mind if you live in an area that experiences hail. Finding a qualified contractor would normally be difficult but Silver Star Roofing Pros partners with very skilled slate roofing contractors Wilmington NC.

Clay and Concrete Tiles
Clay and concrete roof tiles have many great benefits including durability, longevity, non-flammable, and energy-efficiency. They have great curb appeal because of their distinct shapes and variety of colors. Concrete and clay tiles are low maintenance, and can withstand damage from tornadoes, hurricanes or winds up to 125 miles per hour and even earthquakes. These are just some of the reasons that justify the higher cost for these roofing materials. The installed cost of some more exotic tiles can easily reach $20-$30 per square foot. They are good in warm, dry climates. They may require extra support to bear their weight, and they are likely to break when walked on. Clay tiles are popular materials for roofing Wilmington NC.

Built-up roofing or BUR is more commonly used on commercial buildings but is also a good choice for rooftop decks with high foot traffic. This heavy roofing is made up of many layers of tar, asphalt or adhesive and then topped with gravel. Built up roofs provide many layers of protection, so if the top layer is damaged, the additional layers below will continue to protect the building from water intrusion. Built-up roofing is used on flat to low slope rooftops. Extreme high heat may cause the top layer to become sticky in summer, and it is harder to shovel snow off of these roofs when compared to smooth surfaces. They can last 20 to 25 years.
