Top 5 Roofing Shingles in Frisco, TX
You won’t have to make this investment often, but investing in durable roofing material is absolutely necessary. Having durable roofing shingles over your roof will keep you, your family, and your home safe. The hard part is choosing the best roofing material for your home that suits your needs. You’ll need to consider common weather patterns in your area, your budget, and how long you plan to stay in your current home.
For Frisco, TX homeowners, we choosing from the following five types of shingles:
Asphalt roofing shingles might not exactly be unique, but there’s a reason that so many U.S. homes have asphalt roofing installed. First of all, asphalt shingles are on the more inexpensive end of the spectrum when it comes to the cost of roofing. This doesn’t mean that they’re low quality, just not as advanced as some other roofing options available on the market. You’d be getting a material that will last for at least 20-30 years.
Asphalt can be found in a wide variety of colors. Your roof might not stand out as a design element, but it will definitely suit the rest of your home quite well. Additionally, asphalt shingles offer great protection against wind, as well as leak and fire prevention. They can also endure heavy impacts and frequent small impacts like those caused by hail stones.
With asphalt shingles, you’ll receieve great value for the amount of money that you spend on it.
Slate roofing shingles are opposite asphalt shingles with regards to price, design, and durability. You’ll end up paying at least three times the amount of asphalt for slate. That being said, slate roofs are expected to last for over 100 years. Asphalt offers design flexibility, not nearly as much as slate does. You can purchase slate in all types of colors and patterns. If you want your roof to truly serve as a unique design element, then slate is a great choice for you.
In terms of functionality, slate is fire-resistant, water-resistant, and sustainable. It’s pretty much unable to be damaged and that’s why it has such a long expected lifetime.
On a side note, though, slate is quite a heavy material. Thus, you need to have a professional roofing company confirm that your roof can handle the weight of slate. If you do get the green light, make sure you rely on the professionals to execute the installation. The installation of slate roofing is NOT a DIY project.
This type of shingle has a unique appeal. Wood is not exactly the most common roofing material, so they tend to be a nice surprise to see on top of a roof. You can expect it to have a lifetime of between 30 and 40 years. Wood shake shingles have a Class A fire rating (which is best) and insulation capabilities that are twice that of asphalt shingles. They’ll keep the heat out during the summer and in during the winter.
However, you’ll need to be careful with wood shake roofing shingles. The reason for this is that wood is naturally vulnerable to moisture. The shingles will be able to handle your typical Frisco, TX rain, but they’ll need enough time to dry to prevent mold and mildew build up. That’s why this type of roofing is best for areas that are often in direct sunlight or at least not constantly in the shade.
Metal roofing may not be common for homes, but it’s definitely been growing in popularity. You can buy an aluminum roof, copper, steel, zinc…pretty much any kind of metal you can think of. Copper will be the most expensive out of all the metal roofing materials. Metal shingles can be a bit expensive, not as much as slate but still more than wood shingles and asphalt roofing. However, you’d be getting solid roofing that can handle almost any impact that comes its way.
It carries a Class A fire rating, reflects sunlight well, which keeps your home cool and keeps your energy bills low, and is quite eco-friendly. Metal roofing is expected to last 50-75 years and homeowners can expect at least a 30-year warranty upon purchase.
The only real disadvantage is that metal roofing can be loud. If the proper number of supports aren’t installed, the sound of rain and hail will be quite annoying.
Last, but definitely not least, solar roofs are starting to make their way into the roofing market. Solar panels/shingles will cost a fortune, but if you have a sufficient budget to support the purchase, you’ll definitely get many great benefits.
Above all, solar roofs produce 100% of a home’s energy. They’re expected to single-handedly power a home for at least 30 years, saving you a whole lot of money on energy costs. Solar shingles come with a lifetime warranty. They also look very nice on top of a home. Your roof will look sleek and will definitely catch the attention of people who are walking or driving by.
Be patient! Since they’re still the next big thing and due to their obvious benefits, there’s a long waiting list for solar roofing shingles. It may be a while until you actually have your new roof in place. In fact, CNBC wrote an article about Tesla Roof’s rather minimal production.
