This is the most commonly used material in residential roofing and can last from 25 to 50 years dependent on the manufacturers specifications. They come in a variety of patterns, colors, styles and price points. The most common is a 25-year 3-tab shingle that is used on most starter homes because of its cheap entry price. The 30-year shingles have a dimensional or architectural look to them. 40-year and above shingles are considered speciality shingle and normally recommended as an upgrade.
These roof system perform well for the most part but can deteriorate quickly under the hot Texas sun. They are also very susceptible to wind and hail damage. It is recommended that they are regularly inspected.
Slate Tiles are very expensive and is considered a “lifetime” roof normally used on upper-end homes. It is a very heavy material that will require the house to be engineered to support over 1,000 pounds per square of roofing space. There is normally a two-month lead time for this product product and typically a lengthy installation period.
Slate tiles can be walked on and will provide trouble free service if installed according to best roofing practices. They should be inspected every two years for cracked or slipped tiles and roof debris removal is critical to allow proper drainage and prevent tar paper deterioration.
Concrete or Ceramic Tiles
The ceramic tile is more commonly known as Spanish Ceramic Tile and should not be confused or mistaken for the more common Spanish Clay Tile. It is becoming more common because of its reasonable price and is more easily walked on than clay.
It is one of the heaviest roofing product that is in common use. Most new construction is designed for the heavy tiles, but weight can be a factor when choosing to replace a lighter product such as wood shake or composition shingles. Older concrete tile roofs can develop service problems due to installation shortcuts, slipped and cracked tiles and a deterioration of the original tar paper. Like the slate tile there is typically a two month lead time and lengthy installation time.
Due to wood variations, patterns, color and thickness, there are a variety of ways that a wood shake roof can make your home stand out. If they are installed properly they are very energy efficient because they allow a house to breathe by circulating air underneath while providing proper insulation.
Proper installation of wood shakes is more complicated than standard composite roofing shingles. The quality of the finished roof depends on the experience of the contractor as well as the caliber of the shakes you use. It is important to use a skilled roofer that will do an appropriate job and not a fly by night roofer looking to make a quick sale. They can be long lasting with proper maintenance but it is important to have regular roof checks. Without it the wood can dry out, rot, and fail prematurely.
Metal roofing has come a long way from the days of the rusted tin roof. Metal roof materials can come in long sheets, short panels, or in strips that look like tiles or cedar shingles for residential metal roofing. There are two generic types of metal roofing systems for residential use: concealed fastener systems and exposed fastener systems. Generally, exposed fastener systems cost less than concealed fastener systems. Depending on the aesthetic look you are tying to achieve will be the choice of roof type you will make.
Metal roofs are the most resistant roofing material to hail, wind, fire, and freezing/thawing. Metal roofing will save the homeowner money because it is energy efficient, leading to lower A/C and heating costs. It is low maintenance, long lasting and durable, and carries a long warranty. Metal roofing can even usually be installed over your existing roof. The materials used for residential metal roofing are mostly from aluminum and steel, because these metals provide the highest durability without packing in so much weight. Most styles are less than one-third the weight of asphalt/fiberglass shingles.
You may think that residential metal roofing are one dimensional in appearance however there are other metal materials used depending on your roofing needs, and these include copper and other metal alloys. Thanks to modern technology and design you can now choose from various styles, designs, and colors including Spanish tile, wood shakes, and slate, among others
