Asphalt shingles is the most common roofing style in the U.S. Asphalt shingles come in standard and designer varieties, and hold up well against fire and wind. Standard roofing shingles offer a flat, lightly textured surface, while designer roofing shingles have a more textured surface. About 80% of residential St. Louis roofing is asphalt shingle roofing.
Wood shingles and shakes give a rougher, more natural look to your home. Cut from the pine, spruce, or cedar, these traditional roofing materials can often be expensive and require more upkeep and maintenance that more modern roofing. What they lack in functional benefits, wood shingles and shakes make up for in aesthetics, making the roof of your home look natural and beautiful.
Metal roofs continue to grow in popularity as residences and businesses alike turn to this environmentally friendly option.

A metal roof can even be treated to absorb the energy during the cooler months, saving you money on energy costs.
