It’s with this knowledge and experience that we can help you pick the right roofing material for your needs.


Asphalt Roofing


One of the most commonly used roofing materials is asphalt shingles. This traditional roofing material is tried-and-true and has long been the standard for residential roofing applications. The benefits to using asphalt shingles include its long lifespan of typically 20 to 25 years, its ability to be installed over existing asphalt roofing material, and the simplicity of repairing or replacing damaged areas as needed.




Cedar Shakes provide an elegant, desirable look to any home. When properly installed and maintained by a qualified cedar roof specialist, cedar roofs can last upwards of 35 years. At Karbella Construction, we recommend that cedar shake roofs are cleaned and repaired every two to five years to maximize their lifespan.


Rubber Roofing


For flat roofing applications, rubber roofing materials are preferred over all alternatives. Its flexible, durable, watertight nature ensures a leak proof environment for schools, commercial facilities, and warehouses. In addition to its long lifespan, rubber roofing is easy to patch and maintain, making it a no-brainer for facilities management professionals.
