Types of Roofing

Our focus here at Valent Roofing is heavily involved in the production and repairs of industrial roofs- however this doesn’t meaning that there aren’t a wide range of roofing types out there. In this blog, we’re going to go over a few of the popular types of roofing…


For a sophisticated and upscale home, slate may be the roofing answer you’ve been looking for. Slate is a fire resistant material and is not vulnerable to the effects of rot like other materials are. In fact, other benefits of this roofing material include its low maintenance, natural aesthetic appearance and 100 year life span!


Metal roofing is becoming more and more popular, especially within the industrial roofing industry! It is low maintenance, lightweight in comparison to other roofing materials and is rather eco-friendly. Despite this, the installation of metal roofing is known to be a tricky task so it must be done by a professional who has the necessary experience.

Wood Shakes

For a green and environmentally friendly roofing choice, wood shakes is a naturally renewable material used within roofing. In fact, it can even be formed from recycled wood. The materials used during this type of roofing has a minimal effect on the environment and with the correct care, a wood shakes roof can have a lifespan of up to 30 years.
