    We're all for solar panels that tie into the roofline less obtrusively, and these go right over the sheathing, in place of shingles. Each panel has 14 polycrystalline cells and can generate up to 52 watts per hour and withstand hail and 110-mph wind.

    There are two types of wood roofing: shingles and shakes. Wood shingles are machine-cut and tapered for a trim, crisp appearance.  Wood shakes are hand-split, giving them a more rustic appeal.  While not as practical as modern asphalt shingles, there is no denying the appeal of a wood roof on a traditional or historical-style house.

    thisoldhouse.com |The life of a roof depends on local weather conditions, proper building and design, material quality, and adequate maintenance. Slate, copper, and clay/concrete roofs have the longest life expectancy—over 50 years. Roofs made of asphalt shingles last for about 20 years while roofs made of fiber cement shingles have a life expectancy of about 25 years, and roofs made of wood shakes can be expected to last for about 30 years.
