Residential roofing, simply stated, is the installation of roofing materials on a residence. The techniques associated with residential roofing are not always used on homes; some of the techniques also carry over to other types of roofing projects.


While Asphalt is the most common option for the consumer that wants a low priced roof, many are finding the benefits, both aesthetically and environmentally, of more creative roofing options like clay, wood, metal, and slate.

A longtime mainstay of the Southern California, Spanish clay tile, is growing in popularity nationwide. These distinctly red clay tiles are also known as Spanish Mission tiles, and were first manufactured in California at the Mission San Antonio de Padua. The rounded clay tiles were created using a special type of California clay cured over sections of logs.

Wood shake shingles have also been a popular choice for residential roofing materials throughout history, but have lost favor popularity in recent years. Although metal roofs have been around for centuries, they became popular in the mid 1900’s because of their fire resistant nature.

Slate is another residential roofing material, that has been around for some time. These types of roofs have gained a lot of popularity with the Tudor-style homes that saw a revival in the 1920s, and are still popular today.


The most common type of residential roofing material for the last several decades has been asphalt shingles. Asphalt shingles were first seen on roofs in the early 1890s, but new manufacturing technologies have made them popular because of their low cost and ease of installation.
