Choosing the Best Type of Roofing Material for Your Climate
Considering metal roofs are the most durable option for whichever climate you live in, it is usually a great choice. For cold climates like us in New Jersey and Colorado etc, asphalt shingles are another good option because of their ability to withstand the harsh winds and snow. Asphalt shingles are cheaper than many other options so that’s also something to keep in mind. At Tecta Roofing, we like to find the best all-around option for you at the best price.
For hot climates like areas similar to Arizona, California etc., a durable, light reflecting and fast-cooling roof are white metal roofs. They cost more up front than other types but are very durable and require low maintenance. Flat concrete tiling for your roof is something you can have installed to keep the heat from radiating down into the structure (home or building etc.)
The difference in climate between Arizona and New Orleans is so drastic that the materials used to build your entire home are usually completely different. However, In terms of the roof, S-shaped concrete tiles keep heat and moisture from seeping into the area. The shape of the roof tiles also help with circulation which ultimately helps with the potential mold and other problems that come along with unwanted moisture!
