What type of roof is best for Phoenix weather?

Thumbtack Editors
Answered

There are several roofing materials that should withstand Phoenix weather, including foam, metal, tile, shingle, slate, clay, concrete and terracotta tile roofing. 

Foam roofing is one of the most popular roof types in Phoenix right now, especially for flat roofs. It can protect flat roofs against pooling water during a monsoon, and it adds insulation to your home, resulting in lower air conditioning costs.

Asphalt shingles are also popular in Phoenix, though they can be damaged by storms and high winds. Tile roofs consisting of clay, slate or even concrete are durable options and are resistant to harsh weather, pests and fire.
