If you’re in the market for roofing shingles, you’ve probably come across several options for tile and asphalt shingles. Both have some advantages and disadvantages, but which one is right for you? Consider the style you’re going for, your budget, and the various features of each type of roofing material to help you make your decision.
Tile Equals Style Tiles offer homeowners a classic and semi-Spanish style look with lots of color and design options. Clay tiles have been the most commonly used roofing materials throughout world history, including in the ancient Babylonian and Greek civilizations.
Tile Lasts Longer Tile is one of the longest-lasting roofing materials. It can withstand years of abuse from sun exposure and severe weather while protecting against rot and insect damage at the same time. Tile is also a fire-resistant roofing option for those looking for added protection.
Asphalt is Affordable Asphalt is one of the most cost-efficient roofing materials. It’s a fraction of the cost of tile. It’s also easier to install because it’s lighter and is more easily applied, and missing or damaged shingles are easily replaced.
Asphalt Offers Style Options There is no shortage of options when it comes to choosing a style or color of asphalt shingles. Asphalt shingles can be intense and vibrant, bold in contrast and dimension, and even mimic natural slate and wood shake shingles. Advancements in shingle features are also something to consider. Choose from shingles with 130 mph wind resistance and 10-year algae resistance with laminated or unlaminated coatings.
