Metal roofs are commonly made from aluminium, steel, or copper and are a great choice for roofing systems that are robust and fire resistant. Metal roofs, on the other hand, are more costly in general than asphalt or wood roofs.
Due to their Spanish Colonial styling, tile roofs are common. Such roofs are robust, but costly and high.
Slate is becoming a very common option because it is extremely durable for these roofing systems. Slate roofs, although heavy and costly, can last a lifetime.
