There are several types of roofing a mobile home.

Steel

The first type is the steel roofing. This is one of the most popular options when it comes to the roofing that you need for your mobile home. This is because it will be able to handle the weight of the metal. Most of the time, these types of roofs will be made of materials that have been recycled. This means that they are going to be very durable and will not require a lot of maintenance. But if the mobile home has 2 by 2’s on it, then it will not work very well with the steel roofing. The steel roofing will work best for the mobile homes that use 2 by 6’s. It is a good idea for you to add a layer of insulation under the roofing to help to make sure that the home will stay warmer during the winter months.

Shingles

The second type of roofing for a mobile home is the more traditional shingles. Just like they work on the traditional homes, the shingles will work very well on the mobile homes also. You are only going to need one layer of the shingles because of the support structure that the mobile home will have. For a more traditional home, it will be able to handle two or three layers of the shingles because they will offer a lot more support for the roof. You can get the shingles in asphalt or fiberglass, which both will be very durable and can resist a lot of water.

Composite

This is because it will use a special type of shingle that can last up to fifty years on top of your mobile home. They are going to be a lot like the traditional shingles that can be very durable. The composite shingles will come in a variety of different colors and styles that you can choose from. The wood shake or slate will not have all of the costs and weight that are associated with heavy materials. In fact, you might be able to purchase the composite shingles that can resist the mold and algae that can happen to your mobile home if you live in an area where the climate is humid. If it is windy in the area where you live, then it might not be a good idea to use the composite shingles since there is a chance that they could blow off when the wind blows the roof during a storm.

Rubber membrane
