* Clay or Concrete Tiles. Tile roofs look great and are very
durable. The roofing material is heavy, however, and should
be installed by someone with adequate experience, as it
often requires additional framing. Concrete tiles are a little
lighter than genuine clay tiles, and both are long lasting,
with a life span of about 40 to 50 years.

Rost advised that, regardless of the roofing material you
choose, it's important to find a reputable roofing contractor
who is dependable, trustworthy and known to do excellent
work.

* Slate. Berks County is home to many slate roofs, one of
the longest lasting roofing materials that can last between
50 and 100 years. Known for its beauty and durability, slate
comes in varying shades, and is fire resistant and recyclable.
It is expensive, however, and usually requires extra framing.
Professional installation is a must, and upkeep is required.
"The roofs hold up pretty well, but the fasteners fail," Rost
said. "We get a lot of calls about that."
* Synthetic Roofing Products. Synthetic products such
as plastic, polymer or rubber are produced to have the
appearance of natural materials like wood or slate. They're
normally less expensive than natural materials, and designed to be durable and low-maintenance. Depending on
the type of material and manufacturer, synthetic roofs can
be warrantied for up to 50 years.
