Non-Typical Roofing Materials

At least in Northeast Wisconsin, products like cedar, concrete tile, slate and clay are considered “non-typical,” but we’re familiar with these roofing materials. If you’re interested in any of these, we would love to help you. In the past 50+ years, there isn’t much we haven’t done.

Uniquely beautiful roofing materials

Typical roofing materials like asphalt or metal are reliable and aesthetically pleasing, but there are other options available. If you and your home are looking for something that is unique and full of personality, non-typical roofing materials may be a path to consider.

These options include:

Cedar roofing

With a distinct appearance and fantastic reliability against whatever weather you can throw at it, cedar is a great roofing material. It’s also one of the more energy efficient options available. The only thing that beats a great looking, reliable roof, is a great-looking reliable roof that saves you money!

Concrete tile roofing and clay tile roofing

Although our weather around here may not always be reminiscent of a Southwestern landscape, the architecture from that part of the country is beautiful and sought-after! Concrete tile and clay tile roofing give your home a unique appearance, and both pack a serious punch for longevity and energy efficiency.

Slate roofing

Slate roofing adds a tremendous amount of natural beauty to any home’s architectural styling. It’s also high longevity and low maintenance, providing an immediate increase to your home’s resale value – a great option for any home style.
