Choosing the right replacement roofing material can be more challenging than you think. You have to reconcile your home’s needs–such as curb appeal, weather protection, maintenance and energy efficiency–with your budget. Considering that all roofing options have a unique set of advantages, it pays to know about each so that you can make an informed decision.

To choose among asphalt shingle, metal, and tile roofing systems, Dynamic Roofing Concepts explains each one’s best features.

Asphalt Shingles

  • Economical Choice – Affordability is the number one reason no roofing material covers more homes in America than asphalt shingles. They deliver the realistic look of slate and wood shakes at a lower price. Although they don’t last as long as other materials, advanced technology has made asphalt shingles tougher than ever. For instance, GAF products meet the requirements of the most torturous long-term-shingle performance tests in the industry.
  • Fast Installation – On average, an asphalt shingle roof only takes about a week to complete. Its installation is one of the most convenient home improvement projects.


  • Reflective Surface – Metal’s superior energy efficiency is one of its best qualities. It blocks most of the solar heat that hits it and re-emits the little amount of energy it absorbs to maintain a cool surface. Its exceptional reflective properties prevent the attic from becoming a furnace and make all your rooms more comfortable.
  • Sleek Appearance – A metal roof lends the look of modern architecture. But even if your home has a more traditional style, metal’s crisp finish and elegant lines can contribute to its exterior beauty.


  • Impressive Weather Resistance – Tiles are some of the most durable roofing materials. They can withstand strong winds, slow the spread of fire, resist damage from hail impact and stay in place during minor earthquakes.
  • Sustainable Material – Tile roofing options are green. They help conserve precious natural resources. Installing a tile roof helps prevent landfill congestion and reduces the demand for manufacturing new materials.
