A roofing system is a vital aspect of any home. Being that it provides protection for your entire home and family, you want to make sure that it is as durable as they come.

With so many types of roofs on the market, and given the complexities of a roofing system, it can be tough to determine which is the best fit for your home. The roofing contractors of Houston Roofing & Construction are here to help you make this decision.
There are a number of things to consider when selecting a new residential roofing system. Of course, cost and durability head the list, but aesthetics and architectural style are important, too. The following roofing products are commonly used for steep-slope structures. When you’re ready to make the final choice, contact us and we’ll guide you through every step of the process!
Asphalt shingles – The most common shingle used in the U.S. These shingles can be reinforced with organic or fiberglass materials. Although asphalt shingles reinforced with organic felts have been around much longer, fiberglass-reinforced products now dominate the market.
Wood shingles and shakes – Wood shingles and shake shingles are made from cedar, redwood, southern pine and other wood types. Wood shingles are machine sawn; shakes are handmade and rougher looking. A point to consider: Some local building codes limit the use of wood shingles and shakes because of concerns about fire resistance.
Tile (clay or concrete) – Tile is a durable roofing material with many different styles, colors, and finishes. Tile Systems are designed to meet certain aesthetic and design styles, and are heavy compared to other residential roofing systems. If you are replacing another type of roof system with tile, you will need to verify that the current roof structure can support the load.
Slate – Slate is considered virtually indestructible. There are several different colors and finishes, and most of these depend on where the rock is quarried. Slate is more expensive than other roofing materials, and requires special skill and experience for installation. There are several synthetic products on the market that offer the look and feel of slate without the high cost.
Metal – There are two types of metal roofing products: panels and shingles. Apart from metal roofing’s longevity, metal shingles are relatively lightweight, have a greater resistance to adverse weather, and can meet specific aesthetic and design goals.
Roof Repair & Replacement
Roof damage can occur during strong storms, high winds, and bad weather. Most storm damage to a roof is not easily visible, therefore it is important to receive a complimentary inspection from Houston Roofing as soon as possible to see if your roof is still protecting your home adequately. It is vital that you have a roofing contractor present when your roof is inspected by the insurance adjuster. It is not possible to make an insurance adjuster approve damage repairs that don’t exist, but a good roofing contractor can point out damages that the adjuster may have overlooked.
