Roofing options laid outHere’s a quick comparison of the most popular roofing materials.
Asphalt shingles are lightweight, won’t break when you walk on them and carry fire ratings. Many Arizonans choose these low-maintenance fiberglass shingles because they’re the easiest kind of roof for the do-it-yourselfer to maintain and repair.
Clay or concrete tiles are the most popular choice among Arizonans for pitched roofs. Tile—especially clay—lasts a long time and won’t rot or burn under our scorching summer sun.
Metal roofs—usually aluminum or coated steel—are durable, fire retardant and almost maintenance-free. They are also energy efficient; metal reflects heat and blocks its transfer into the attic, which can save you money on your air conditioning bill.
