Decisions, Decisions – Roofing Choices for the Best-Dressed House

Your home needs a new roof. Last summer’s storms weren’t kind to it. Perhaps its age is finally catching up with it. Or maybe you’ve built an addition and want the whole house to have a seamless, stylish look. So, a new roof it is. But what kind of roofing should you consider?

Having new roofing put on your home, be it in Fort Worth or elsewhere, isn’t as simple and easy as it once was. Oh, sure, our guys can and will have a new roof on your home in no time. No, the hard part comes in deciding WHICH roofing you want us to install. With that in mind, we’ve created this run-down of the various types of roofing available to make your new roof the best-looking one on your block.

Ludowici Spanish Tile

Does your home bring to mind the days of Old Mexico, when lace parasols and sombreros were more common than Stetson hats? Then you may just want to consider our Ludowici Spanish tiles for your new Fort Worth roofing. 100% recyclable materials – it IS dirt, after all – make this choice of roofing a no-brainer for those “green minded” homeowners. With a 10 year warranty, you can rest assured that you can rest easy under your Ludowici tile roof for years to come. And then there’s knowing that Ludowici has been in business for over a century – a family run business still providing the same quality product. Also, the classic style tiles are really the only way to top that Spanish architecture.

Inspire Slate Shingles

Is your Fort Worth home historic? Does it have that certain Victorian or Edwardian flair that set all the boys’ hearts afire about a century and a half or so ago? If so, then our Inspire or Davinci “slate” may be just the thing to polish it off. They aren’t really slate, not anymore. Rather, new “slate” shingles are a composite, polymer material made to simulate the look, and even feel, of slate.

Davinci Polymer Slate Tile

However, new “slate” doesn’t have the fragility, nor the weight, of the original. With irregular edges, and original color styles, only you and your roofer know if it’s the “real thing” or not. Inspire slate also comes with a 20 year warranty. How’s that for longevity?

Standing Seam Metal Roofing

For a truly modern, yet classic, look, look no further than standing seam metal roofing. Your Fort Worth home or business will stay safe, secure, and water-tight for up to 40 years, under a metal roof. With a wide variety of colors and finishes to choose from, you’re sure to find something that’s pleasing to the eye, as well as your budget. Standing seam metal roofing has the longest life of any of our roofing choices, with some finishes and paint colors lasting a full 40 years before needing to be replaced or maintained. (The range of longevity is from 20 to 40 years, depending on your choice of roofing.) Go a bit retro-futuristic with a standing seam metal roof!

Marlarkey Alaskan Polymer-Modified Asphalt Shingles

Our Fort Worth summer storms can wreak havoc on your roof. That’s why we don’t offer just any run-of-the-mill asphalt roofing for your Fort Worth home. Instead, we offer the Malarkey Alaskan. This line of polymer-modified asphalt carries the highest extreme weather rating – Class 4 – available. With a 10 year warranty, and 7 color styles to choose from, you can keep your stylish choice of roof for years to come.

Tamko Heritage Shingles

Offering another choice for your historic Fort Worth home’s roofing (or any home you want to provide with a certain rustic style), Tamko Heritage shingles emulate the look of real wood shakes. They do it however, with laminated asphalt that carries a 30-year guarantee. And they do it in a variety of styles that are sure to please even the most discerning taste. Give your home the look you’ve always dreamed off, without a bit of sawdust in sight!

As you can see, we’ve plenty of choices for you from which to make your now-educated decision – colors, styles, materials, even longevity ranges. Now, it’s all up to you. What do you see when you envision your home’s new roof? What matters to you most – style, long-lasting wear, green materials?
