Arizona’s roofs have one key requirement - and that is to be able to successfully withstand the harshness of the relentless summer heat and the battering force of the rains and thunderstorms in the monsoon. Generally speaking, either one of tile or shingle roofing can solve this issue. But of course, the type of roof that actually gets used in a home depends on several other factors, such as budget, location, the type of home in question, the owner’s sense of aesthetics, and technological advances. As mentioned earlier, however, tile and shingle roofing are among the most common choices. Tile roofs offer strength and insulation and that will last for a good number of years before any repair would be needed. Shingle roofing systems offer these same benefits, but with the added advantage of the owner being able to choose from a wide range of designs and patterns. Other than these, foam roofing has become quite popular recently - made from liquid polyurethane foam, it creates the look of a seamless, single sheath, preventing any foreign object to even seep in - all while being much lighter than the other options. Metal roofing are largely used in non-residential structures due to their ability to withstand cyclonic weather and natural disasters in general.
