The roof is one of the most important pieces of the home, providing superior comfort and protection from many weather elements. But, the roof on the house serves a purpose greater than protecting it, although that is its primary job. The roof also serves as a statement and enhances the look and appeal of your home.

In your time of need isn’t when you should try to research and find a company that will exceed expectations, and you never know when such a requirement will occur.

We can replace the current roof on your home with the same type, or you can change the roof material all the way around. It is your home and your choice. Whatever your decision, we are here with an array of roofing types of make you happy.

The following roofing types are most popular for Birmingham residents searching for a new roof. They might also suit your needs, too. If you would like more information about any of these roofing types, or if you have questions, or are ready to install, just give us a call and speak to one of our pros!

Asphalt Shingles

Perhaps the most commonly chosen roofing material, asphalt shingles offer an average lifetime of about 25 years when properly maintained. The low cost is the main attraction to residential asphalt shingles, but once homeowners discover the additional benefits offered, they couldn’t be happier with their decision to use them. The versatility and options in styles and colors are other factors that give asphalt shingles their massive appeal.

On the downside, asphalt shingles aren’t as durable as some other roofing types, and the darker-colored shingles may be subject to fading, thanks to the Birmingham sun beating down.  Algae and mold growth are both additional disadvantages that some find disheartening but usually issues that you can easily avoid with proper care and maintenance.

Keep in mind that roofs are available in many materials, such as what’s listed above, but also in many sizes, shapes, and designs. Creating a customized Birmingham home is easy when our roofing company is on the job.

Slate and Tile

Slate and tile are two additional roofing choices popular for residential homes.  Birmingham homeowners who are searching for sophisticated styling often opt for slate and tile. It is more expensive than asphalt shingles, but most agree that it is worth the added costs. These shingles are fire resistant and offered in many colors and styles to appease all homeowners. The sophistication offered is quite amazing, and you will find slate and tile on the most exquisite homes in the city.  With proper care, slate and tile roofing can last up to 100 years!

There are a couple of disadvantages associated with the use of slate and tile, as you will find with any other roofing type. The biggest disadvantage is the cost. Many homeowners who would like the sophisticated and durable roofing material cannot afford the costs as it is the most expensive of the many roofing options.


The ceramic roof is another popular material used for roofs in residential locations. It isn’t as common as some of the other listed roofing materials but is nonetheless an option available and worth consideration.  When ceramic roofing is selected, it adds character and style to your home, and you can be sure that you are one of the only people using it. The cost keeps many people away from ceramic roofing options, but if that isn’t a concern for you, we’d love to discuss with you ceramic roofing and its many benefits.

Metal Roofing

Metal roofing is used most often in businesses and commercial locations, but thanks to the enhanced versatility it ensued over the years, it is also used in residential locations often, too. Metal roofing is chosen by those who demand durability and longevity, who don’t mind spending a little more initially to enjoy benefits that continue for a long time to come. When well maintained, metal roofing can last as long as 100 years! Compared to the 25-year average life of most roofing, that is a pretty impressive number! Metal roofing is sold in many different styles and colors, so meeting your décor requirements with this roofing type is easy.

These are just a few of the types of residential roofs that we offer. Along with the roof itself, we proved all the accessories that you need to go with it, including sheathing, fasteners, flashing, and more. Once you contact us for your roofing needs, we get the job done!

What’s the Cost of a New Residential Roof

There isn’t a cool Name Your Own Price tool for a new residential roof, but you can rest assured that Shelby Roofing has a roof in your price range. The purchase of a roof is a major investment, and we take pride in keeping the costs to a minimum. We’d love to discuss with you the various roofs available for your residential location to give you a better idea of the anticipated costs of purchase.  Once you’ve decided on a roof, we’ll provide a personalized estimate, so you know exactly what it will cost for the addition to your home.

Many factors influence the cost of your new roof, and while it might be money that you’d rather not spend, delaying re-roofing is going to only prolong problems and cost you more money when all is said and done. Some of the factors that influence the cost of your new roof include:

  • Roofing material selected
  • Size of the roof
  • Flashing/ Coatings selected
  • The company was chosen for the installation
  • Warranties/Guarantees
  • Style/design

No two Birmingham residents will pay the same amount of money to buy a new roof for their home because there are so many different factors that influence the price.
