Our roof is something that we always count on being there, so we don’t put much thought into it. If you have lived in your home for a long time your roof may be on its last year. Or perhaps you recently bought an older home with a roof that has seen better days. Whatever the case is, deciding it is time for a new roof is a big decision. One of the most popular questions we get is, “What type of roofing material should I go with?” That’s a great question and one that is not simply answered with a few words. Fortunately, J&K Roofing is here to go into detail about the pros and cons of shingles and tiles.
Shingles are by far the most popular type of roofing materials used throughout the country. They are inexpensive and versatile. Shingles also come in many different colors that are sure to match any home’s style. However, due to being made with thin materials, shingles have a much shorter life span when compared to tile.
The sundown here in South Florida gets very hot and many of our customers consider this when deciding on a new roof. Many people choose to go with tile roofing because of the increased durability offered. Tile is so strong it can stand up to hurricanes without compromising the integrity of your roof. Of course, all these added benefits come at a higher cost. A tile roof is much more expensive than shingles, but keep in mind tile does have a longer lifespan.
