Roofing is an integral part of your home, and it’s crucial to find a company that you can trust. At Roof Medic, we pride ourselves on being one of the leading roofing companies in Charlotte. We uphold this reputation by only delivering excellent roofing and customer services to the homeowners of Charlotte. Over the last ten years, we’ve come to learn which roofing materials work best in the Charlotte area and if you’re looking to replace your home’s roofing system, these are some of the most common and popular roofing materials in the Charlotte area:

Charlotte asphalt shingle roofing

Asphalt Shingles

With asphalt shingles being the most popular roofing material across America, it’s no wonder this affordable and easy-to-install roofing material has made an enormous impact in Charlotte. They provide unparalleled versatility with their many color options, and they also offer homes excellent protection against extreme weather elements.

The asphalt shingle roofing system is available in 3-Tab and Dimensional shingle variations, as well as a wide array of different colors and hues, giving homeowners the freedom to choose the rooftop that matches their aesthetic preferences.

Asphalt shingles are one of the most requested residential roof types at Roof Medic.

Metal Roofing

Metal roofs have steadily become a popular roofing option in the Charlotte area. This premium roofing material has one of the highest weather resistance, strength, and durability features that make it perfect for areas in Charlotte that experience frequent severe weather conditions. A metal rooftop can withstand winds up to 140 mph, has excellent UV protective features, and is one of the few recyclable roofing materials on the market today.

The metal roofing system is available in various materials, including copper, steel, aluminum, corrugated, standing seam, and tin. Thanks to their incredible malleability, these materials can be shaped into any design that you desire.

Tile roofing

The people of Charlotte have been going wild for tile roofing systems. These roofing materials create some sleek, aesthetically pleasing rooftops that perfectly match any architectural style.

Homeowners have the choice of installing clay, ceramic and concrete tile rooftops. Thanks to their natural composition, these tiles are capable of withstanding the sun’s bleaching effects and thus maintain their rich natural hues. The clay and ceramic tile variations are available in warm reds and deep brown hues.

Flat Roofing

Flat roofing systems are an excellent option for homeowners trying to create a more modern aesthetic for their homes. They’re easy to install and effortless to maintain. The roofing system offers you the great option of using the flat roof as a space to install skylights, solar panels, or air conditioning. You could also turn your flat roof into extra living space such as a small garden or lounging area. It’s easy to see why the popularity of flat roofing systems in Charlotte is steadily increasing.

Cedar Roofing

Western red cedar wood is an incredibly durable material, making it a great roofing option for your Charlotte home. These roofing systems are known for lasting upwards of 50 years, but they need to be regularly treated to protect them against fire breakouts, insect infestations, and more.

Cedar roofing is available in two variations, shakes and shingles. Cedar shingles are neatly trimmed shingles that create a neat and tidy appearance for your home. Cedar shakes are a little more rugged in their appearance and add a more natural aesthetic to your home.

Slate Roofing

Slate roofing is an incredibly attractive roofing material for homeowners. It has unmatched durability, comes in various colors and hues, and provides every home with an outstanding curb appeal.

Slate is one of the most robust roofing materials. It can survive in some of the most severe weather conditions and withstand water and moisture’s deteriorating and warping effects. Therefore, there’s no need to worry about your roof attracting any sort of mold and fungal growth. Your roof is thus able to maintain its beautiful aesthetic. And due to it being a natural material, its appearance is timeless and suited to almost every architectural style.

    Fantastic, honest company. Highly recommend them. Jordan is straightforward and knowledgeable, the crew is friendly, and they are extremely efficient. They were glad to answer any questions I had and make sure I understood what they were … More doing. Office staff is very friendly as well! They have an eye for the details that matter in maintaining the integrity of your roof. No regrets going with Roof Medic, and we'll use them for future needs.
    UPDATE: used Roof Medic again for a roof replacement, and we continue to love the company. They do excellent work, have a friendly crew, and are highly knowledgeable. They walked us through the insurance claims process, helping us understand what was going on and why every step of the way. Communication is stellar, and we never felt like we were at a loss as to where we were in the process or why. High quality, efficient work. Will definitely use again if the need arises and recommend this company.

    Roof Medic was recommended to us by our insurance agent when we had significant damage following a wind storm. Nick Stewart, who we worked with from day one was extremely professional, responsive & easy to work with. We ended up replacing … More all of our gutters and downspouts along with a full roof replacement, which included a new metal roof above our front porch. Chris, who is Roof Medics production manager ensured our job was done quickly and flawlessly. We couldn’t be happier with how it turned out & would not hesitate to recommend Roof Medic to anyone! Nick and Chris were fantastic to work with, not a single complaint!

    Roof Medic exceeded all my expectations, as a homeowner who desires over communication, exceptional work and true value on our hard earned dollars.
    From the initial inspection, to dealing with insurances, selection of products, scheduling
    … More of installation and finally the actual install, Roof Medic was fabulous. I can't over state how nice, professional and a pleasure Nick, Jake and Megan were to work with (great experience).
    If you're looking for a firm that walks you through all the details and potential costs (no hidden Change Orders) and are responsive to all your inquires, look no further as this is your team.

    I cannot thank Roof Medic enough. Julian came out to inspect our roof that had a lot of moss growing on it due to very large oak trees shading the property. We were sure we would need to replace it soon but we didn’t realize we had storm … More damage as well. He thoroughly walked us through the insurance claim process and even came out the day the adjuster was here. Our roof ended up being covered by insurance! What a blessing that was for us old retired folks. They estimated that they would possibly need two days to complete the job but they were able to finish in one very full day. It was starting to get dark when they were cleaning up which may be the reason for my only complaint. We have found to date 24 roofing nails on the asphalt driveway. I’m just hoping that none find their way into our tires or any visitors we have. I would still highly recommend Roof Medic.

    The entire team at Roof Medic was a pleasure to work with! Incredibly efficient from start to finish. I submitted an online inquiry over the weekend, and I had my inspection already scheduled the following Monday. My inspector Nick was … More ultra efficient and helpful - he gave me a clear rundown of the entire process, and was super responsive every step along the way. Once the materials arrived, I was scheduled right away for a time convenient for my schedule, and the entire job was completed in one (long) day! Chris, the Production Manager, was also helpful in ensuring the roof installation went smoothly, extra materials were picked up quickly, and things were left neat and tidy. Really incredible work all the way around! I enjoyed working with the entire team of professionals at the Roof Medic and can't recommend them enough for anyone in need of roofing services.

He kept me informed through out the project on what to expect as well … More as up dated on any delays.. My new roof looks great. Everyone from Roof Medic was very professional, courteous and easy to work with. I highly recommend Roof Medic for any kind of Roofing needs.

    Read all the great reviews and being a veteran, I was confident in a veteran owned company. Pat came out and did a great assessment. The insurance company pushed back so I decided just to get the repair done where the leak is at. Paid the … More deposit almost 2 weeks ago and was told that Production will contact me. I haven't heard from Production and when I reach out to the office or Pat I am told they are very busy. I have read in other reviews that their communication is good. I would like to see this. I am not asking for them to get to me fast but since I paid the deposit then at least keep me up to date. I look forward to getting the work done and giving Roof Medic the 5 stars they most likely deserve.
    Update: Production reached out to me and scheduled the repair. Looking forward to commenting on the work when it is completed.

    Nick was great about coming to the house he even worked with me to come out to meet the insurance agent. Since it was snowy the insurance agent didn't want to go up to look at the roof so Nick went up for him and took pictures which … More helped the process not get delayed. Knowledgeable about product offerings to help make the right choices for my home. No more leaking roof!

We had a great experience with the company their communication was great. Received several emails from Megan during … More the process. Josh Lloyd was a pleasure to work with very informative always answered my many questions. We feel he went above and beyond helping us with our insurance company and claim since we did have some hail damage The crew showed up on time, very polite, hard workers and left our property looking the way they found it. Very pleased with everyone at Roof Medic and also happy to support a veteran owned company. We have already recommended Roof Medic to a coworker.

    I was part of the committee at Cornerstone Baptist Church that contracted with Roof Medic to install a new roof on our facility. From start to finish Roof Medic and all of their employees were great to work with. I have been in construction … More for almost 50 yrs and have worked around many roofing companies and Roof Medic is the best I have seen. They are very professional, and have the knowledge and experience needed to be able to work well with insurance companies. If there is a legitimate insurance claim, Roof Medic will certainly see that you receive everything that you are entitled to. I highly recommend Roof Medic whether there is an insurance claim or not, because their quality and attention to detail is superb. I recognize a well run project and from start to finish this project was well run and our property was cleaned daily.
