Slate roofing is available in various grades and colors and it’s the perfect topping to an elegant home. Providing amazing textures and style, slate is very high-quality and very low maintenance, with a life expectancy of between 40 and 200 years. Slate has been used for centuries to create beautiful roofs, and renowned for resisting the assaults of rain, wind, and snow.
Accounting for about 80% of the residential roof surfacing in the United States, asphalt shingles are measured against a variety of standards that evaluate fire and wind resistance, tear strength, and other key performance indicators. Fick Bros is proud to install CertainTeed asphalt shingles – the premier manufacturer of asphalt shingles in the United States. CertainTeed manufacturers the industry’s most extensive line of asphalt shingles.
Metal roofs can provide homeowners with many benefits normally found only in commercial roof systems. Metal is synonymous with strength and toughness. But as a roofing material, strength is only one of the advantages of metal roofing. Metal roofing is surprisingly affordable with life-cycle costs that are substantially lower than conventional roofing materials.
Built-in gutters are a concealed roof drainage system. Since they are not readily visible, they typically don’t alter the historic character of buildings and don’t detract from or conceal decorative cornice details.

Wood / Shakes
Wood shakes and shingles provide a warm and elegant look (and even a rich aroma!) to the top of your home. These types of shingles are generally made from cedar and occasionally redwood or southern pine. More expensive than asphalt shingles, but less expensive than slate, wood shingles provide a look that many homeowners find irresistible.
Although they have been around for centuries, clay tiles are regaining popularity as a finished roofing material throughout the country – and for good reason. Both clay roof tile and its modern partner, concrete, are not only beautiful but also extremely durable. With proper building design and installation, tile roofs can last 50 to 100 years or more.
