When choosing a material for your new roofing system, consider the kind of climate you’re living in. Since New Mexico is characterized by mild to arid climate with bits of precipitation, your new roofing system should be able to handle this kind of environment.
Goodrich Roofing discusses the four roofing materials perfect for New Mexico’s climate.
1. Asphalt Shingles
Asphalt remains a good choice for many homes in the state due to their affordability. In terms of performance, it has respectable elemental resilience and boasts a wide range of color palettes to choose from, including hues with good reflectance value. It’s also easy to maintain, making it a good year-round roofing system.
2. Tile Roofing
Both clay and concrete tile roofing have a natural resistance to heat, which means installing this kind of roofing will help improve your home’s indoor comfort and reduce cooling costs. Tile roofing is also famous for its sheer longevity concrete tiles have an average life span of 50 years, while clay has been recorded to last over a hundred years and more.
Although it’s mostly used for commercial properties, thermoplastic polyolefin is becoming a popular option for homeowners with modern homes sporting flat roofs. TPO’s natural white color is highly reflective, and reflects sunlight instead of absorbing it. The result is decreased cooling costs during summer.
4. Metal Roofing
Strong, durable, and surprisingly lightweight, metal roofing is also one of the most energy-efficient roofing systems available for both residential and commercial customers. We suggest a reflective coating on your new metal roof so your home stays warm.
