As a Texas homeowner, you must consider two things before deciding to install a new roofing system or replace an existing one.
The first thing on your mind should be the quality of the materials the roof is made with, and the second, the style of the roof.
Texas is known for a harsh climate, especially during the summers when the heat can get as high as 100 degrees F, so the style of the roof must be considered carefully before purchasing one.
If you’re not sure which roofing style should you go for, you have just arrived on the right page. SR1 Roofing in Fort Worth, Texas has a few ideas in their mind which should help you make an informed decision. So without further ado, let’s have a look at what they recommend.
Shingle roofs are surprisingly not the most popular roofing styles for Texas homes, but it is an inexpensive option which makes it quite attractive. The material and the style itself has a long lifespan.
Shingle roofing can also be installed fairly quickly and the project is usually completed within the estimates. You can choose shingle roofs in various colors and textures to increase the curb appeal of your home too!
In Texas, metal roofs are the most popular type of roofs used. These are popular for various reasons. Metal roofs are available in various shapes and configurations.
In fact, metal roofs can easily be constructed, designed, and installed in a way that they imitate other roofs, especially those that are made with shingles.
Metal roofs are also quite aesthetically pleasing and provide energy efficiency. There are many colors to pick to give your home a unique look. Metal material is also durable compared to wood shakes and shingles.
With proper maintenance of the material and the roofing system, this roof can last for many decades. Since it is also eco-friendly, the metal can be reused later for other projects.
Textured roofs are composite shingles and are also quite popular amongst Texas homeowners. They are typically referred to as dimensional or laminated roofs.
They are very similar to 3-tab roofs but the only difference is that they have extra pieces that are laminated on to the shingles. This makes the shingles look thicker and obviously makes them stronger with the additional textured layer.
The extra thickness of these roofs will help keep any defects hidden. You can purchase them with a warranty of 30 or 50 years.
Tile roofs are available in different sizes and shapes. They are popular in both residential and commercial roofing projects.
These can usually be seen on Spanish-style homes and are made with clay material which is very durable.
This type of roof can last over a century if properly taken care of.
Now that you are aware of the four most popular roofing styles in Texas, why not get one of these installed or replaced with your old roofing system? Keep in mind that the longevity of the roofing system depends a lot on who installs it.
