If you are looking around Houston for your roofing needs, you may already be familiar with the wide variety of options for materials, styles, and even the contractor who will perform the installation. But deciding on where to invest your money can be hard.
Some of the most common materials for residential roofing in Houston are asphalt and metal. However, we highly recommend the latter based on the following points:
- Durable and long-lasting. The composition of asphalt roofing, which is oil-impregnated paper or fiberglass, immediately begins to deteriorate after installation unlike metal roofing, which does not decompose. Because metal can withstand external elements better than most materials, it lasts longer than your average roof.
- Aesthetically flexible. Metal roofs come with a variety of styles, colors, patterns, and designs that can match any home or neighborhood environment. It can be made to look like cedar shakes, slate, standing seam vertical panels, or tile roofing in Houston.
- Energy-efficient. A lot of metal roofs today are being made to pass ENERGY STAR’s minimum solar reflectance and reliability criteria, which determine how energy-efficient metal roofing is. Unlike asphalt roofs, applying special coating on metal roofing can automatically give you an energy-efficient roof.
Of course, hiring the right contractor will also play a big part in acquiring these benefits. A reliable company that can guarantee proper installation is your best bet.
