Composition shingle roofs are typically the most common type of roof installed on residential homes, also known as asphalt shingles. A great choice for any homeowner on a budget, composition shingles is available in an almost endless number of colors and sizes. These shingles can really make your roof stand out and add to your homes curb appeal. This type of roof is a great investment, especially in the time of a resale to give potential buyers an incentive to buy your home.
Composition/asphalt shingles are one of the most popular roofing materials used in the nation. They are extremely durable and can withstand the high temperatures here in Texas. Upon an affordable installation, they are easily maintained and repaired.
IMPACT RESISTANT SHINGLES
We offer impact resistant shingles for residential properties that are often subject to severe weather. The technology and materials combined in making these shingles allow for a longer-lasting, more durable shingle that can survive the most extreme weather conditions.
Our shingles are also rated class 4 for impact resistance. If you are unfamiliar with the classifications, class 1 is the least durable while class 4 is rated the most resistant to various types of damage. These shingles will not only protect your most valuable asset but also protect the ‘look’ of your home and its aesthetic appeal all while providing peace of mind.
Many people we’ve come across thought metal roofs were used in industrial and commercial settings only. However, metal roofs are a very popular choice for residential applications as well and rightfully so. Metal roofs can boost the aesthetic appeal of your home and are well known for their energy efficiency. Homeowner’s we meet are often looking for suggestions on lowering the electricity bills, installing a metal roof will do just that.
That’s not all metal roofs have to offer; they are virtually maintenance-free after proper installation. Installation is key when installing a metal roof because if the underlayment is not done properly, your roof will leak and may have to totally be torn off and re-installed.
Offering durability, metal roofs are great for extreme weather conditions and can uphold high winds in excess of 150 miles per hour. Metal is also resistant to rot, mildew, fire, and insects, that alone can potentially save you thousands in miscellaneous repairs!
WOOD SHAKE ROOFS
Wood shake roofs are another great option that can offer a variety of artistic looks to your home or property, some even say it adds a ‘historic’ look. This type of roof was very popular during Colonial times because of fo the abundance of trees available to new settlers. Wood shingles are lightweight and easy to install.
A wood shake roof can withstand the test of time just as well as other roofing materials, they do not rust which is a plus. This is one of the lighter weight options available and is a great choice for homeowners wanting a unique look. However, they are also high maintenance and require a lot of care, as exposure to the sun and rain can cause the shingles to split or curl. They are also very flammable and can cause your insurance premiums to rise.
Tile roofing is another popular choice that offers long-lasting beauty. It is available in a variety of colors and styles. Tile is a very durable material offering maximum protection from the elements. They have a unique feature of natural water shedding and ventilation, perfect for residents in Texas. The design possibilities are endless with tile roofs, as they are versatile and can be round or flat, replicate centuries-old roofing materials, simulate wood shakes, and more.
Tile roofs require minimal maintenance to function properly and uphold the visual appeal. They are traditionally made with terracotta aka clay, slate, or concrete. These materials are not only durable, but they are also fireproof. In the event a repair is needed, tile is known for being easier to repair than other choices. A tile roof is a beautiful investment for your home and it is one of the most economical choices available as they can last 50-100 years.
A copper roof on your home will be sure to stand out! This beautiful metal roof offers unmatched character and durability. A copper roof is a great economical choice as it can last many, many years, and requires low maintenance upon proper installation by our team of roofing specialists. As most metal roofs are energy efficient, copper is no exception, installing a copper roof can help homeowners maintain lower cooling and heating costs.
While copper roofing is not a very common choice for Texas homes, due mostly to the cost, it offers a truly sophisticated and unique look. When properly taken care of, a copper roof can last at least 100 years! Imagine never having to replace your roof during your entire lifetime. It’s possible with a copper roof.
A living roof or green roof is added on to an existing roof and is either partially or completely covered with plants/vegetation typically planted over a membrane that is waterproof. There can also be extra layers used for barriers and irrigation systems/drainage.
There are quite a few health and environmental benefits that come along with a living roof. Some of these include; providing food, habitat for wildlife, architectural and decorative enhancement, and improved air quality. These roofs can last just as long as more traditional materials since the waterproofing membrane is protected under the growing medium or plants and doesn’t get as much exposure to roof aging factors. A green roof that is installed properly can last 35-50 years or more.
