What type of roof is best for Houston weather?

Thumbtack Editors

In Houston, you have many roofing materials to choose from. For example, asphalt shingles, metal, slate, concrete and clay are all viable options for your home. 

Asphalt shingles are generally more affordable, but cheap models may crack in Houston’s intense heat. A metal roof outlasts asphalt shingles several times over and reflects sunlight, making it more energy-efficient. Slate, clay and concrete are also extremely durable and have been known to withstand extreme weather conditions.
