While there are more types than you'll see below, these are popular in the United States:
Asphalt shingles are made mainly of fiberglass with asphalt sealants. These shingles are popular because they are affordable and durable. Their pretty much all-weather materials, lasting 15 to 30 years. Harsh, consistently bright sunshine can make asphalt roofs have the shorter end of a useful lifespan we get enough rain and cloudy days that sunshine may not be a problem but the temperature swings may cause problems.
There are different types of metal roofs:
Stand seam metal withstands high winds, and lasts up to 50 years Ribbed metal panels are less expensive than the stand seam roofs, but they aren't as durable, and they last between 25 and 50 years Stone-coated steel tiles are popular in areas that are prone to hurricanes because they withstand winds up to 155 mph; these roofs last between 30 to 50 years
In addition, the type of metal matters. Copper and zinc roofs sometimes last over 100 years. If you think the rest of your house will last that long, you might want to invest in such a roof.
Wood shakes and shingles
Wood roofs are often beautiful, and they can last for about 30 years with heavy-duty maintenance and no adverse weather. Maintenance includes yearly cleanings and repainting/staining every five or so years. Cedar repels insects and rot, and it withstands wind better than some metals! Other kinds of wood are more prone to insects and rot, and they are less wind-resistant.
