Buying Guide: What Kind of Roof Do You Need?

At Wortham Bros Inc., we believe a good roof is not a matter of chance but a matter of choice. To help you make the right choice, we make sure that you are provided with a selection of only the best roofing options around. They are popular for many reasons, so whether you require hail damage repair or a complete roof replacement, you can’t go wrong with these materials. 

Composition Shingles

Asphalt shingles are affordable, making them ideal for property owners looking to work within a budget. Composition shingles make opting for asphalt roofing even better by offering a more dimensional look that takes a roofing system’s appearance to the next level.

Slate & Tile

For a roof that lasts, slate is the leading choice. Made of natural stone, it is naturally durable, easily lasting 100 years or more. Slate boasts a unique appearance that will make any home or building stand out for the right reasons.

Not far behind in terms of durability and long service life are clay and concrete tile. Expected to last anywhere from 50 and 100 years, clay and concrete tile are best suited for drier, warmer climates like Texas. They also promote natural ventilation, helping prevent passive heating from impacting indoor temperatures.

Metal Roofing

If you’re considering a roof-over after wind damage repair, metal roofing is a great choice because it’s lightweight. It is also durable, lasting 40 to 70 years on average, with a smooth surface that promotes the shedding of moisture. Metal roofing is available in various profiles, but it most commonly comes in standing seam panels.


Best for flat roofs, TPO/PVC roofing systems are usually installed on commercial properties but also do well on homes, depending on how they are used. They don’t last as long as other roofing options, with an average service life of 30 years, but can resist damage due to punctures, tears and impact. They are also easy to install, thanks to their single-ply construction.
