Steep Pitch Roofs
Architectural / dimensional / luxury asphalt shingles
An asphalt shingle is a type of wall or roof shingle that uses asphalt for waterproofing. It is one of the most widely used roofing covers in North America because it has a relatively inexpensive up-front cost and is fairly simple to install. Asphalt shingles are the predominant product in the steep pitch roofing world.
Concrete roof tiles are a durable water-shedding material that most often last the lifetime of a building. Concrete roof tiles simulate the appearance of traditional clay tiles, wood shake, slate, and stone. Concrete roof tiles were first fabricated in Bavaria, in the middle of the 19th century, from a mixture of cement, sand, and water. Many homes built with these original concrete roof tiles still remain, proving their long service life.
Synthetic Polymer tiles
Synthetic polymer tiles, slates, or "wood" shingles are manufactured using polymer-based or composite materials that may offer improved impact resistance (such as resistance to hail damage). Polymer-based or plastic roofing products are generally about the same weight as laminated asphalt roof shingles, therefore lighter than cement-based shingles, clay roof tiles, or slate roofs.

A metal roof is a roofing system made from metal pieces or tiles characterized by its high resistance, impermeability and longevity. It is a component of the building envelope. Zinc, copper and steel alloys are commonly used.

Stone Coated Metal
A stone coated metal roof is made from steel or some other metal; the metal is then coated with stone chips and attached to the steel with an acrylic film. The goal is a more durable roof that still retains the aesthetic advantages of a more traditional roofing material.
