Choosing The Right Roof Texture For Your Home

There are so many different types of roofing tiles to choose from. So how can you pick the best roof type for your home? Start by considering the roof texture. Different tiles give different looks to your home and also provide different benefits. Below, we’ll share some of the most common types of roofing shingles and how their textures impact your house.

Asphalt Shingles

Asphalt shingles are perhaps the most popular roofing option. This is because they are easy to find, easy to install, and come in a wide variety of styles. Asphalt shingles have a more gritty texture up close, but look smooth on the roof.


Metal is thin but durable with a smooth, even texture. It is very strong for its weight, which makes it a great option for people who want a weather-proof roof. While metal roofing is more popular for storage units and commercial buildings, it can be used for residential builds, too.

Wood Shingles

Wooden shingles provide a popular, rustic look. The texture is slightly uneven, which provides a beautiful country style. While it’s a great option for people who want a natural roof, wood might not be the best option for poor weather and fires.


Clay and concrete tiles are smoother than asphalt and provide a durable finish to any roof. They can also provide you with an elegant, Mediterranean style. However, clay and concrete are both very heavy materials, so it’s important that you work with a specially-trained contractor.

Other Materials

These are just a few of the many roofing styles out there. There are many other materials that can provide both smooth and more textured roofing surfaces. A contractor can evaluate your home and also your style goals to help you choose the best material for your project.
