Metal roofing sheets have often been a go-to for those in diverse weather conditions. For customers in the dry and warm climate of Texas, it proves to be beneficial due to its fire-resistant properties. Not only is sheet metal roofing safe, but it’s fairly inexpensive compared to other roofing materials. It has a long shelf life and can provide clients with extended use for several decades without repair. What’s more, most sheet metal roofing is easy to install so you won’t be stuck in a construction zone if you decide to switch over.
Slate is another roofing material comparable to sheet metal but with stronger properties. It’s both water and fire-resistant and can combat most forms of deterioration such rust, mold, or fungus buildup. Although a bit pricier in comparison to metal, slated panels hold longer than most other roofing materials, meaning you’ll end up getting your money’s worth if you invest in these. Slated panels work great in the Texas heat and offer clients a high degree of safety and comfort.
Asphalt is one of most popular types of roofs available coming in the form of small tiles or shingles. These are able to accommodate a variety of shapes and sizes in the roof’s building structure, as they’re smaller and easier to lay. With other types of roofing, you may be limited to one or two particular designs that can match how the building materials are to be laid. With asphalt tiles, you won’t run into high installation costs as the shingles are common and frequent in the roofing industry. However, you’ll likely need to replace them more frequently than you would with other types of roofing materials on the market. Asphalt shingles are a great option for homeowners that want a durable and sleek looking appearance to their roof, without the added costs that can sometimes incur.
