Shingle vs. Tile Roofing Materials

Oct 05, 2021

Picture of a roofer installing asphalt shingles.If your roof needs to be replaced, one of the first things you’ll have to decide is what type of roofing you’d like to have installed. Asphalt shingle and tile are two of the most popular options on the market, but how do they compare, and which one is the right choice for your home? We’ve got the answers you need.

It’s true that tile roofing complements certain types of homes, such as those with a Mediterranean- or Spanish-inspired style. But for many homeowners, asphalt shingle roofing is the far superior option. One of the main disadvantages of tile is that it’s very heavy, which means that it requires considerable structural reinforcement for support. Plus, when compared to asphalt shingles, tiles are more:

  • Expensive
  • Brittle
  • Likely to crack
  • Prone to moss growth
  • Difficult to install
