While Plano enjoys fairly moderate temperatures through the seasons, it does experience some extreme condition now and then. This includes sporadic thunderstorms, heat waves, heavy rains and drought.
Because of these conditions, an emphasis must be placed on good quality roofing in the area. At Helsley Roofing we’re confident that the right roofing materials coupled with excellent workmanship can help defend your home against these factors. Here we share a list of the roofing materials most commonly used for homes in Plano.
Asphalt Shingle Roofing
Asphalt shingle roofing has grown in popularity because of its ability to resist and protect against all kinds of extreme weather conditions. Asphalt’s waterproofing capabilities are great and in addition, it is also great at reflecting solar heat. What’s more, asphalt shingles come at a fraction of the cost of more premium options, though you will likely need to replace them in about 20 years or so. Regular and proper maintenance is key to avoiding this.
Tile roofing, on the other hand, is touted for its longevity. Whether clay or concrete, a tiled roof can last up to 100 years. It can only afford this long lifespan thanks to its durability, resistance to fire, extreme heat, wind and heavy rain, making it a great choice for Plano homes. As a bonus, the aesthetic appeal of a tiled roof is unmatched. Be prepared to pay for your investment though as tile roofing is one of the more expensive options, it’s an investment that will only be required literally once in a lifetime so definitely worthy.
Metal roofing is an obvious choice for roofing in the Dallas/Forth Worth area for its durability. Don’t be mistaken by imagining a big, ugly silver roof though. Metal roofing now has the ability to be fashioned in a myriad of ways. They come in a variety of colors and are able to be texturized, with stone-coated metal roofing being a popular variation.
Cedar roofing is a popular option in Plano. The shingles are known for their exceptional beauty and durability. Cedar provides a natural vibrancy to homes and ages well over time. Plus, the average cedar shingles last, on average, ten years longer than asphalt ones. Cedar is a better natural insulator than asphalt too, providing double the insulation. That means homeowners can conserve heat and cooling energy more effectively.
