Residential Roof Replacement
When the roof over your home is beyond repair, that’s when you need to replace your whole roof. Or when your roof already looks old and you want your house to get more visual appeal, you could also opt for roof replacements.
Residential roofing in Austin varies depending on the location of your home. Most homes in Austin have asphalt shingles, but some homes, such as those in South Austin, have clay tile roofing installed. If you live in an area that’s hot all year long and gets extremely cold during winter months, you’ll likely need to hire a roofing contractor to come out and re-roof your home.
The process for roofing replacement also varies depending on the type of material being installed onto your home. Many homeowners are not aware that there are different types of roofing materials, each available in different styles to choose from: asphalt shingle roofs, slate roofs, tile roofs, metal roofs, and many more.
Slate is very durable and can last many years without aging too much but it doesn’t hold up well against rainstorms which cause leaks to form due to water damage already prevalent within the slate roof. The installation process for this type is much simpler than that of asphalt shingles which makes it an extremely popular choice among homeowners who are looking at upgrading their entire roofs.
Unlike clay tile roofs, these types do have the additional advantage of providing thermal insulation especially if energy-efficient features such as reflective coatings and solar reflectors are installed.
Like slate, asphalt shingles use a ceramic or pressed-pigment layer that has been heated to high temperatures is then painted on. Unfortunately, they do not hold up well against intense rainstorms which cause widespread leak problems within these types of roofs. They’re extremely popular with homeowners since they’re not very expensive materials to install and do an excellent job of covering the roof without leaving too much excess material for potential leaks.
A metal roof lasts up to 75+ years before requiring further repair work such as replacing any missing sections. However, because these types may be thicker than asphalt, they are also usually harder and make less movement during high wind episodes that would cause fractures. The process of installing a metal roof is extremely complicated and needs to be performed by trained professionals like us.

Commercial roofs in Austin are made out of different materials than residential roofs. They’re also constructed differently, too. For example, they’re typically made with asphalt shingles, which are considered to be a more durable material than tiles. Tiles can be replaced easily, but asphalt shingles tend to last longer and require less maintenance. Other roofing options include metal roofing and composite roofing.
