alternatives to wooden roofing

Wooden roofs used to be very common in the Fort Worth area of Texas, but today, the material has been replaced by other options that cost less, offer more durability and are better suited for the climate in the region. Here are some great alternatives to consider:

  • Metal – metal is among the strongest materials used in construction, the alloys used on roofs offering superior resistance to the elements as well as durability of around 50 years. Metal roofing materials come in the form of large panels, tiles and shakes and in a wide array of colors and finishes that allow homeowners to find the best fit for their architectural style;
  • Clay and cement tiles – the two solutions are among the heaviest options and they are also quite expensive, but they can both be expected to provide protection for around a century and they also offer unparalleled elegance. Both clay and cement have excellent insulation properties, being great for hot Texas climate;
  • Asphalt shingles – the most affordable roofing material comes in a huge variety of styles and colors and the range of quality levels is also wide, from simple, 3-tab options to special, impact-resistant varieties that can stand up to even the strongest storms.  There are many great roofing products to choose from take a look at https://www.lonsmith.com/ and discuss with your roofer before you decide what is best for your home.
