Get the Roof You Want With Distinctive Roofing Materials

Roofs no longer have to be boring rows of black shingles. There are many styles of roofs and a myriad of roofing materials you can use. With all these types, you can also choose almost any colour you like on eBay at affordable prices.

Are there different roofing materials available on eBay?

Unlike the past, todays roofing choices are many. You can choose from different types of roofing materials, such as:

  • Solar tiles - Solar tiles can integrate seamlessly into existing shingles and generate up to one kilowatt of energy for every 100 square feet.
  • Asphalt shingles - These inexpensive shingles are effective in all environmental conditions but need to be replaced every 20 years. Be sure the shingles are rated for either the ASTM D3161, Class F (110 mph) or ASTM D7158, Class H (150 mph) wind tests, and also for the AC438 durability test.
  • Metal roofing - This type of roofing material is available in vertical panels or shingles that resemble tile, slate, or shake. These roofs last around 60 years and are resistant to snow, rain, and high winds. It can be installed over existing roofs.
  • Stone-coated steel - Stone-coated steel panels resemble clay, slate, or shake shingles and are resistant to most weather conditions.
  • Slate - Slate roofing can last more than 100 years. It is fire-resistant and repels mould and fungus.
  • Rubber slate - These tiles look natural and can be cut to fit different roof configurations. They can last 100 years but need to be installed by a professional experienced with laying rubber slate tiles.
  • Clay and concrete tiles - Clay and concrete tiles are resistant to damage from hurricanes, tornadoes, and winds up to 125 miles per hour. They are even earthquake-resistant.
A dome roof light and other skylights can help conserve energy

Roof lights can help tremendously in reducing energy costs, and they can also illuminate low-light areas and give an illusion of more space. In the winter, they can help bring in more heat into the living spaces. They also help in lighting costs. There are many types of skylights, such as dome roof lights, pyramid roof lights, barrel vault roof lights, and other types of roof lights.

Does eBay have a variety of roofing styles?

There are multiple styles of new, pre-owned, and used roofs that you can install. Some well-known styles are gable, hip, mansard, flat, butterfly, bonnet, pyramid, dome, and mansard roofs. Roof domes are particularly useful for playhouses and theatres. A roof dome, gable, hip, bonnet, pyramid, or mansard style can use almost any type of common roofing materials. Flat roof domes require materials like roll roofing, tar and gravel, metal sheets, TPO, PVC, and rubber membrane. Butterfly requires a solid, continuous membrane.
