Roofing Types We Offer

When you drive down the street and look at the roof of each house, you may notice that most have asphalt shingles, but there are many different types of roofing available. At Schram Roofing, we specialize in asphalt, metal, and tile roofing. Each type has its own benefits, so continue reading to get a better idea of which type of roofing will work better and look more aesthetically pleasing on your home.


When you think of a roof, you most likely picture a roof with asphalt shingles, as they are one of the most common types of shingles used in roofing. The reason these shingles are so popular is because they are usually the most cost-effective, and they also work well in all types of climates, which is a huge bonus for the unpredictable Nebraskan weather.

Another bonus of choosing asphalt shingles is that they come in a variety of different colors, making it easy for you to match the aesthetic of your home. These shingles are also quite durable and easy to install, meaning you may not need repairs as often as with other types of roofing, and if you do, it won’t take long for our experts to make them.


Metal roofing is another popular type of roofing, and the unique feature of metal roofs is that they can be installed using either shingles or panels depending on the style you want for your home. Similarly to asphalt roofing, metal roofing is quite affordable, with the added bonus of being lightweight and environmentally friendly as well. Additionally, while asphalt roofs typically need to be replaced every 20 years, metal roofs are slightly more durable, and you only have to replace them every 50 years.

Metal roofs are available in four types: zinc, aluminum, copper and steel, so you may not have the extensive color option that you would with asphalt roofing. In addition, depending on the type of metal roofing that you choose, some metal can be manufactured to look like wood, slate, or even asphalt, giving your roof a unique look.


Tile is a material that many don’t typically associate with roofing. However, tile can be a great option for those who live in dry climates or want to add a unique texture to their home.

Typically, tile roofing is offered in either slate or clay tiles, with clay tiles being a little more affordable than slate. If you’ve ever worked with tile in your home, you know how heavy it can be. It is likely you will need to consult a Schram Roofing professional to determine if your roof is a good candidate for tile as structural requirements for a tile roof can differ from other roof types, as the weight of the roofing may require more support or framing. That being said, if your home can support tile roofing, you won’t need to replace your roofing for another 50 years, as tile is extremely durable just like metal roofing. Another great quality of tile roofing is that it can withstand extreme weather conditions, which can be ideal given the climate in Nebraska.
