Most building owners prefer some roof types and roofing materials over others. If you’re looking for a commercial or residential roof, you probably have a preference for a particular type of architecture. However, it is important to ensure the right materials are used for each type of cover. When you choose Blue Spruce Exteriors, professional roofing contractors advise you every step of the way.

The choice of roofing material isn’t based solely on aesthetics or cost. Several different factors determine which materials can be used, including the slope of the roof, the environment around the structure, and state building codes. The table below shows some common roof types and the materials which best suit them.
