DB3 Roofing Specializes in Many Roof Styles and Installations

General Types of Roofing for Home and Business

A good architect will have the design of your house or building conform with the general styles of the immediate area, creating a broadly uniform curbside presentation – unless you’re specifically going for the “individual”-look. For this reason, you’ll probably end up with an asphalt shingle roof on your home and a concrete roof with a TPO layer on your business premises, as these are the most common materials.

It is essential to consider a roofing contractor’s ability to work on several roof types because it is often prudent to use the same contractor for minor repairs and a major roof replacement – the latter also being a time to consider using a different, more sustainable roofing material, e.g. replacing wood shingles with plastic tiles. A great roofing contractor will assist you with suitable options, and DB3 Roofing has the experience and know-how to be your trusted roofing partner for life.

Popular Roofing Materials

The climate of North Texas is defined as being hot and muggy in summer and cold and windy in winter. These conditions place a particular strain on your roof, so only some roofing materials are popular in the area, including:

  • Asphalt shingles – A popular choice throughout the continental US for its competitive price, ease of installation, and excellent durability in various climates. However, the lifespan of standard asphalt shingles is limited to only 15 to 20 years before requiring expert replacement.
  • Standing Seam Metal Sheets – If you want a durable roof that will last for over 60 years and is not very expensive to install, then a metal roof is the right option. A considerable benefit of metal sheets is their lower weight and larger surface area than tiles and shingles, so your trusses can be less intricate, often opening up attic space for an extra room.
  • Recycled materials – There is a significant move towards using recycled materials for roofing, including plastic shingles and metal tiles. We fully embrace the use of these materials as a method of decreasing waste and our own carbon footprint.
  • Concrete roofs – A flat or slightly sloped concrete roof is often the choice for commercial buildings. The concrete is commonly sealed with thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO), spray polyurethane foam (SPF) or ethylene propylene diene terpolymer (EPDM).

Many other roofing materials exist, including slate shingles and clay tiles. Nothing really beats slate and clay as roofing materials since they are excellent insulators during winter and summer. However, both are expensive and require strengthened trusses to carry considerable extra weight.
