Maggio Roofing is the most trusted contractor for Maryland, Virginia, and Washington DC roofing. With more than 20 years in the roofing industry, you can say that we know everything there is to know about roofing. In fact, last year was really busy for us as we pretty much installed all types of roofs and provided various roofing services in the areas mentioned.
With our over two decades of experience installing different types of Washington roofing, we’ve noticed that a lot of homeowners have a hard time choosing what type of roofing to install. With that, we at Maggio Roofing decided to come up with five roofing options that were most popular to homeowners in 2014:
1. Shingle Roofing
This is still the most popular roofing option among Maryland, Virginia, and Washington DC residents. Aside from it being the most affordable roofing option, most homeowners are drawn to the elegance and style it brings to any home. Also, it is the easiest to install. In fact, a typical shingle roof can be installed in a matter of days with no special tools, skills, or major preparation required for the installation.
2. Slate Roofing
The second on our list, slate roofing, is one of the most long-lasting roofing options out there. Slate roofs are said to last 50 years, but expect that it can last longer. It is also one of the most elegant types as slate has a certain flair that no other roofing material has. That’s the reason why slate roofing is still popular in the industry.
3. Metal Roofing
Metal roofing has been gaining popularity among homeowners in the past few years. This is because it offers durability that is hard to match. It is said to last between 40 and 70 years, which depends on the material used from which the metal is made. It can also withstand strong winds and does not need too much maintenance and upkeep, making it a very convenient roofing option.
4. Flat Roofing
Flat roofing is the best option for those wanting less costly roofing as this involves considerably fewer materials and less labor than a pitched roof. It is also easy to maintain, and more importantly, it is a safer roof to climb. This means that roof repair, replacement, and gutter cleaning are easier and safer with flat roofs.
5. Solar-Integrated Roofing
Most people around the globe are becoming environmentally conscious. That’s why a lot of Maryland, Virginia, and Washington DC residents are going green with solar-integrated roofing. Aside from helping homeowners lower their energy consumption considerably, using solar roofs is also a great way to help reduce carbon emissions, therefore helping save our planet.
