The Benefits Of Different Roofing Materials

Now that we’ve sung our own praises a bit, let’s get down to brass tacks. Well, let’s get down to clay tile, asphalt, slate roofing, concrete, tile, and metal sheets! Keep reading if you are interested in understanding some differences between commonly used roofing materials.

Metal Roofing

If you haven’t noticed, metal roofs are making a bit of a comeback recently. Standing-seam steel roofing, in particular, has fast become one of the most popular roofing styles out there. Stand-seam steel roofing, as you might be wondering, is a title which refers to the edge of a metal panel connecting to another metal roofing section. The edges and lines aren’t always even or uniform, giving it a post-modern and trendy look.

Metal roofs are fire-resistant, durable, and almost maintenance-free! They are also energy efficient, as many homes with metal roofing material use the sheets to capture solar energy. One study in Florida determined that homeowners who make the change to metal roofs save an average of 20 percent on their energy bills throughout the year! In Colorado, however, we have to be mindful about hail and storm damage, two things which can damage metal roofs. That’s why steel roofs, an environmentally-friendly roofing type, might be worth considering! Steel roofs can be installed over the top of any structure’s current roof and are over 50 percent recyclable when it comes to manufacturing materials the average project uses.

Clay Tile

Clay tile is popular in parts of the world that aren’t Colorado Springs. Most notably, you can find them in Spanish Mission, southwestern, and Italian architecture. For the right kind of climate, clay tiles can be a great option because of what they represent in terms of longevity — which we are quick to point out as being a totally different thing than durability. If you had a clay tile roof in El Paso County, it probably wouldn’t last too long because of the constant temperature change; freezing and thawing repeatedly won’t work out too well, as it will damage the clay. But if you had one in a warmer climate like San Diego, for instance, the roof might last more than 50 years with little to no repair work!

Asphalt Roofs

Asphalt roofs are by far the most popular kinds of shingles that are in use. Made of fiberglass, asphalt, and ceramic pieces, asphalt shingles represent the most affordable and easy-to-install option around. Many asphalt roofs last over 30 years as well, so it’s not like you have to plan on getting a new roof with the same frequency that you’d replace a vehicle of yours. However, asphalt shingles are often susceptible to high winds — something worth having a conversation with your local roofing contractor about when determining what kind of roof you want to put on your home.
