Choosing the Right Roofing Materials

There are many different types of roofing materials that homeowners may choose to put on their roof. Usually the material you choose depends on budget, HOA and/or insurance requirements, climate, and aesthetics. We offer our homeowners asphalt, formed resin, concrete tile and stone-coated steel roofs. We sell roofing materials from a variety of manufacturers so that our homeowners have access to the highest quality products. Read below for more information on different roofing materials and to learn more about the brands we carry. If you would like to talk to one of our roofing experts or receive a free in-home consultation and evaluation of your roof, please contact us.

HRTI offers the following types of roofing materials from quality brands such as GAF, CertainTeed, Owens Corning, and others – we’ve chosen these because of their excellent durability, look, and value.

We stand behind all of our products:


GAF, CertainTeed, Tamko, Ownens Corning – (Asphalt)

Asphalt roofs are among the most popular roofing materials in the country. They come in a wide variety of colors, thicknesses, and are an affordable choice. The asphalt shingles we have chosen to offer our homeowners are anywhere from 30-50 year shingles, depending on the brand and type. These shingles are very resistant to wind and severe weather and can stand up to most storms. Asphalt roofs are offered in standard shingles, impact resistant (IR) singles, or triple laminate (TL) shingles.

Asphalt roofs offer fast installation. They are usually finished within 2 days. Installation however, does rely on the weather. If an asphalt shingle is installed in temperatures too cold, you run the risk of the self-sealing adhesive strips not adhering completely. This could cause shingles to come off of your roof during high winds and severe storms and possibly leak.

We believe installation should only take place when the temperatures will be warm enough to allow the adhesive to adhere to your roof. The exact temperatures can depend on the manufacturer and product, but we typically like to see forecasted temperatures in the 40’s or warmer.

We offer our homeowners the following brands of asphalt roofs:


DaVinci Belaforte, DaVinci Single-Width/Multi-Width – (Formed Resin)

We love installing formed resin roofs for our homeowners. We feel this is the best product with the highest quality shingle, best warranty, and beautiful look. This roofing material is impact resistant (IR) and is among the top in wind speed ratings.

We’ve chosen to offer DaVinci brand formed resin roofs for the look, style, durability, and ease of installation. We can offer our homeowners a wide variety of colors and styles to fit with your home and area.   These shingles are made to resist fading so they look wonderful years after you install your new roof.

When installing formed resin roof, there is no additional structural support required like there is when installing a concrete tile roof. The shingles are nailed down in a similar way to wood shake roofs; there is no self-sealing adhesive strip as there is with asphalt roofs. Because of this, we can install this roof in lower temperatures than asphalt roofs without compromising the quality of the install.

When choosing your formed resin roof style and color, you may want to consider adding snow anchors. These roofs can be slippery when wet, allowing snow to slide off your roof in sheets before it has a chance to melt. You may end up with a large pile of snow on your walkways and in front of your entrances with every snow storm. Installing snow anchors, at least over your walkways and entrances, keeps the snow on your roof until it melts. We highly recommend this in our region.

We offer our homeowners the following brands of formed resin roofs:

Decra, Decra XD – (Stone-Coated Steel)

Stone-coated steel roofs are durable and long-lasting. They are impact resistant (IR) roofs and are resistant to hail, wind, and severe storms. They are made to resemble wood shake roofs and are offered in a wide variety of styles and colors to fit the look of your home and neighborhood. The stone coating that makes these roofs so durable also provides a layer of resistance to fading and UV penetration, ensuring that your roof looks great years after you put it up.

Depending on which product you choose, installation can vary. If you’d like your roof to more closely resemble a wood shake roof and have more dimension, a batten system will need to be installed first. Our installation team will use 2×2’s to create a batten on your roof. Once that is installed on your roof, the shingles will be layered.

This not only provides a beautiful look, but also reduces energy consumption in your home. If you don’t mind a look that has less dimension, the stone-coated steel shingles can be installed directly to your roof without the batten system. This will result in a look that lays more flat on your roof, but is still very attractive.

You do have to be sure to be careful when walking on your stone-coated steel roof. The shingles can be easily dented if walked on improperly. It doesn’t sound like such a big deal, who goes up on their roof very often? But make sure that anytime you or another contractor goes up on your roof to paint, clean your gutters, or put up Christmas Lights, that you follow the manufacturer directions for walking on the shingles.

We offer our homeowners the following brands of stone-coated steel roofs:

Boral – (Concrete Tile)

Concrete tiles can be wonderful roofing materials for your home. Once installed, it’s virtually maintenance-free and provides wonderful insulation for your home. Concrete tile roofs are fire, rot and insect resistant. The color choices aren’t as plentiful as asphalt or formed resin, but the look and feel it can give to your home is unique and full of character.

While this product is awesome and can last a lifetime, there are some issues that can make it seem less desirable. This will depend on how your home was built and the climate. Concrete tiles are a very heavy material, weighing roughly 9 lbs/sqft.; as compared to asphalt shingles at 2 lbs/sqft or formed resin at about 3 lbs/sqft. If you take your average size home which needs approximately 30 squares of roofing materials and multiply this by 9 lbs, you end up with a roof weighing around 27,000 lbs – that’s equivalent to 4 Ford F-150 pick-up trucks!

This added weight requires an engineer to spec out your attic and your contractors to build a support system strong enough to hold the weight of this roof. Once installed, these roofs look fantastic, but prepare for a more involved and expensive installation process.

Concrete tile roofs are not considered Impact Resistant (IR) and do tend to crack during severe hail storms or if walked on improperly. In this case, individual tiles can be replaced, but there could be a color difference because of fading over time. Be sure when you or other contractors are walking on your roof to paint, clean gutters, put up Christmas lights, or retrieve a baseball, that you follow the manufacturer’s instructions so that tiles aren’t broken.

We offer our homeowners the following brand of concrete tile roofs:

CeDUR – (Synthetic Shake)

A synthetic shake roof captures the natural warmth and character of cedar shingles, without the drawbacks of traditional cedar shake like high maintenance, climate concerns and fire danger. Crafted with realism unlike any other, the innovative blend of polymers used provides unparalleled performance for your home.

Synthetic shake roofs are unmatched in durability. They resist harsh weather, rot, insects, and fire for a lifetime of beauty. Not only are they long lasting, but they are virtually maintenance-free. There is no staining or sealing required like is necessary with natural wood.

Their lightweight design makes synthetic shingles ideal for re-roofing projects which can increase your curb appeal and the value of your home. In many cases, the use of synthetic shake may lower your insurance costs as well. It boasts a Class-A fire rating and is Class 4 Impact Rated. They are also certified to 115 mph wind speeds.

With a long lifespan, garnering a 50-year lifetime limited warranty, synthetic shake is a sustainable choice and an environmentally friendly option. Synthetic shake is also easy on the wallet over the course of its life in maintenance costs.

We offer our homeowners the following brand of synthetic shake roofs:

Roofing FAQs

What are my first steps to getting a new roof?

Replacing your roof is a big project, but the first steps are all about preparation and information gathering.

  1. The first step is to inspect your roof yourself. Look for missing or damaged shingles, leaks, and any visible signs of wear and tear. Also, take note of the style of roof you have (gable, hip, etc.) which will help you narrow down material options.
  2. Next get a free estimate by contacting HRTI for a roof replacement. Ask about the materials we use, the warranty we offer, and know we are licensed and insured.
  3. Then choose your materials. There are a variety of roofing materials available, each with its own pros and cons. Asphalt shingles are the most common and affordable option, while metal roofs are more durable but more expensive. Consider your budget, the climate, and the overall look of your house when making your decision.

Do you provide quality assurance inspections during roof installation?

Of course we can. Quality assurance includes several tasks by an inspector such as verification of materials, inspection of installation techniques, checking waterproofing integrity and proper adherence to building codes.


Do you work with General Contractors/ Construction Managers?

At HRTI, we are a General Contractor. We have the ability to handle more of your project than just the roof and gutters. We can manage an entire construction project.
