What Are The Best Types Of Roofing Materials?

There are quite a few different types of roof types that you can use when you have a home. We carry four different main types of roofing that you can choose from. Clay tiles, asphalt tiles, metal roofing, and wooden shingles. Each of these can make your house look really good and there are advantages and disadvantages to each type. Here is information on all four so you can decide for your self what you want your local roofer in Dallas to install for you!

Clay Tiles

Clay is a local favorite here in Dallas. It makes complete sense why too. Clay roof tiles, while a little bit more expensive, can hold up to almost anything you throw at them. Heavy rains, snow, wind, and ice can’t penetrate them. There is a reason why many archeologists find artifacts made out of clay that have lasted for 1,000’s of years. It is because clay has the ability to last through anything and everything. On top of that, they won’t rot at all and is resistant to fire and bug damage. They can last far longer than most other roofing materials as well. 

Asphalt Tiles

Asphalt tiles are great because they are versatile. They can be adapted to any roof. With some more modern houses, the roofs can be different angles and lines that older roofs did not have. Asphalt tiles can be adjusted to fit any of these angles that they need to be. They also offer great protection and insulation to the house. 

Metal Roofing

Metal roofing is great because it can look beautiful on almost any house in any neighborhood. This  type of roofing has long last durability and the way that the metal sheets lock together allows for them to have the best wind resistance of any roofing material. It also is extremely energy-efficient and allows your home to stay cooler during those hot summer months. The metal roofing material also is extremely fire-resistant, so you can rest assured that your roof will protect through all the elements.

Wooden Shingles

Wood shingles are a great choice for someone who wants to have a multitude of options when it comes to colors. Wood can be stained or painted in a large variety of ways. On top of that, they are naturally resistant to water, so when it is raining you don’t have to worry about it beginning to shrink. It is also a low-density material that doesn’t put stress on the naturally built roof of your home. Since wooden shingles are built from all-natural materials, they also are extremely environmentally friendly. It doesn’t allow any substance runoff that could damage the environment around the house
