Different Types of Roofs

Different Types of Roofs

Roofing Replacement RichardsonA new roof installation or roof replacement is an important investment. As a result, many homeowners become overwhelmed at the options available. At J Wales Home Solutions, we proudly offer premium quality roofing services for property owners in Fort Worth and surrounding North Texas neighborhoods. Are you unsure which type of roof is best for your home? Here is a list of the most popular materials available in today’s marketplace.


Asphalt shingles are probably the most economical option available. Due to their widespread popularity, asphalt shingles also come in an array of color options to suite many different décor preferences. If you choose to use asphalt shingles, be sure to choose a high quality style that will stand up to tough Texas weather. Going with the minimum standard available could mean you’ll have to replace or repair shingles after every heavy thunderstorm. Choosing a higher quality shingle will increase the overall longevity of your roof and reduce the amount of time and money spent on maintenance over the next decade.


Metal roofs can be purchased in a range of materials including aluminum, steel and copper. They can also be installed as seamed panels or as shingles. Metal is becoming an increasingly popular choice among home builders due to its affordable price and incredible durability. Metal can stand up to rain, snow, high winds and even sleet or hail. It’s also resistant to fires and extremely energy efficient.


If you want a property with a romantic, old world style, then tile is the way to go. Colonial and mission style homes are a perfect match for traditional ceramic or clay tiles. There are alternative modern varieties available on the market as well such as those made from cement or synthetic materials. You’ll also save on roof repairs and replacements in the following years, since concrete or clay tiles often last a century or more.


The beautiful gray, green or red shades of slate roofs always provide the most stately and sophisticated designs. While they may be a more luxurious option for homeowners, it is an investment that will be well worth the cost. Most professionally installed slate tile roofs last a minimum of 125 years however some tile roofs are more than 200 years old and in excellent condition. Their unbelievable longevity makes slate tiles the perfect choice for families who want the absolute best long term return on their investment.
