Learn which roofing material is right for your home.

Types of Roofing MaterialsWhen it comes time to replace the roof on your home or business, it’s essential to choose the right material for your structure and goals. Whether your primary concern is saving money on energy costs or maintaining the architectural integrity of your home, the right roofing material will make all the difference.

At MEIS Roofing & Construction, we are familiar with virtually all of the roofing materials used in the DFW area, and we are uniquely situated to help you make the right decision for your home. To start, we’ve laid out the advantages of three of the most common types of roofing materials used in our area.

Concrete/Clay Tile

More and more homes in Fort Worth and Dallas are turning to concrete and clay tile for their roofs. Not only do these materials help homes stay cool by absorbing heat before it gets to the home, but they can also be very durable. Finally, their appearance blends in with the traditional features of Spanish and Mediterranean architecture found in many area homes.

Asphalt Shingles

Asphalt shingles are durable, cost effective, and one of the more common roofing materials in use in the United States. These shingles are relatively inexpensive and can be easily repaired over the years. Plus, the many color and style options available make it easy for homeowners to create a custom look.

Metal Roofing

Metal roofing is one of the most energy-efficient and easy-to-maintain roofing materials. The fact that it lasts a long time and requires few repairs makes it very cost effective over time. In fact, this material can even lower the cost of your insurance premiums.
