Tile Roofing vs. Asphalt Shingle Roofing

If you are in the process of building a new home or business or simply need your existing roof replaced, it is important to know and understand all of your roofing material options. The most popular roofing material is by far the asphalt shingle; however, there are many other materials that are available. Each material has its own aesthetic and functional purposes, so talk with a professional roofer about your options before making this key decision.

To get the best roof available, you need to know all of the facts. At AAA Mustang Roofing, our team of Austin roofing professionals is dedicated to answering your questions and providing you with the best roof and service on the market. Call us today at 512-650-9866 for a free estimate.

Tile versus Shingles

There are advantages and disadvantages to each roofing material. Tile roofing is a very durable roofing material that can last a long time if properly maintained. Tile roofing is often seen in Spanish-style buildings and provides a unique look compared to other materials. Some benefits of tile include:

  • Ideal for fireproofing property
  • Not as wasteful as other materials
  • Can withstand years of severe weather or sun exposure
  • Protects against insect damage and rot

However, if you are considering asphalt shingles, there are many advantages to this material as well. Some benefits of composition shingles are:

  • Many different options for colors and sizes
  • Low maintenance
  • Easy to install and replace

If you have any questions about which style of roof is right for you, make sure you speak with a professional roofer today.

I first became acquainted with Zane Nixon, owner of AAA Mustang Roofing, when our metal roof was severely damaged in a hailstorm. Our house is large and has over 30 separate roof surfaces, with an equivalent number of edges and valleys. Zane and his crew completed the work in less than two weeks, and it is flawless. They even repaired several areas that suffered structural damages.

Just recently a flash flood on the day following hurricane Hermine caused significant damage to the first story of the house. I called Zane and he was here within 30 minutes and stayed until midnight. Using squeegees, towels and a shop vacuum, we managed to save the rugs and furniture. However, the walls required substantial repairs. Zane worked closely with our insurance adjuster, and the wall repair work under his guidance as contractor is every bit as professional as his previous work.

I recommend AAA Mustang without reservation for any type of construction or remodeling job.
