Determining the type of roofing material that best suits your Dallas home is no small task, so here are some of the most common materials used by a Dallas roofing contractor to consider:
- Asphalt shingles – asphalt shingles come in several different quality levels, all of them very affordable. The material comes in many styles and colors, it is easy to install and to maintain and it offers a durability of around 20 years;
- Metal – metal roofing materials come in many different styles, from large panels to tiles and shakes and they are also available in different alloy versions, such as copper and zinc that can last for over a century to tin and aluminum that can stay on your roof for around 50 years. Metal options work great for Dallas homes due to their superior resistance to the elements;
- Clay and cement tiles – the two heaviest roofing material options are suitable only for solid buildings that can safely sustain heavy roofs, but they offer unparalleled benefits, such as durability of around a century, low maintenance and repair needs, resistance to the elements without fading and sustaining major damage and excellent thermal insulation properties that can contribute to the building’s energy-efficiency even without thick layers of roof insulation added in the attic.
