Roofing reviews

Consumer Reports is the only place to find unbiased, independent roofing reviews. Roofing is an important part of your house—it is literally the roof over your head. Repairing your roofing is very important because cracked or missing roof tiles, if not fixed promptly, can lead to costly roof repairs down the road. When replacing your roofing, should you choose asphalt roofing, metal roofing, or fake slate roofing shingles? How many layers of roofing are okay to use?

Our experts at the Consumer Reports National Testing and Research Center have evaluated more than two dozen types and brands of roofing material at our on-site roofing testing labs. Our reviews will provide you with roofing Ratings, where you will find the exact numerical score our experts have assigned to each of the five tested roofing  review criteria that make up our roofing reviews: weight per 100 square feet, strength, wind, weathering, and impact. Our tests include such major roofing brands as Certain Teed, IKO,Tamko, GAF-Elk, Owens Corning, and other brands of roofing.

After reading the roofing reviews, you can compare roofing models, review our list of the features and specifications, read user reviews, and submit your own review.  If you prefer visual information about roofing, you can watch our roofing video buying guide.
