Composition shingles are the most popular and the most common as they tend to fit in the majority of our budgets. Another great feature of this type of shingle is the variety of colors they come in to match our various exterior colors on our homes or businesses. Clay tiles are very attractive and bring a sense of prestige as the most common homes that use this type of tile are the larger more ritzy type of homes in high end neighborhoods. Concrete roof tops lean more towards the commercial end client who cares more about the longevity of their investment rather than the short term.

So which ever category your roof falls under, just remember that when doing your search for Brownsville roofers, make sure they have the knowledge of the type of roof you have or that they at least specialize in roofing other than composite shingles.
