Asphalt roof shingles are economical, versatile, and easy to maintain. Their cost is reasonable. Asphalt shingles are created with one of two types of bases; organic fiber mat or fiberglass. While the organic fiber mat base is generally better for cold weather & offers more wind resistance, the fiberglass base offers fire & moisture resistance. One of the greatest advantages of asphalt shingles is its maintenance. Asphalt shingles can stand up to all weather conditions and require minimal maintenance, which is important when it comes to our unpredictable Denver weather.
Tile roofs have durability beyond compare, energy cost savings, and protection like no other roofing material. With over a century of proper field performance in other parts of the world, tiles provide the longest track record of performance compared to other roofing materials such as asphalt shingles. Its modern engineering design provides a natural water shedding and ventilation feature allowing tiles to be the primary roof covering in warm and cold climates (even reducing ice damming in cold areas).
