  1. Asphalt Shingles
  2. Clay Tiles
  3. Metal Roofing

Asphalt Shingles

Homeowners choose asphalt shingles most often when selecting roofing material for their home. The range of colors and styles allows a homeowner to customize the look of their new or replacement roof. Additionally, they come at a lower price-point than other options on this list. While asphalt shingles come at a lower price, they may not offer the same wow-factor as different materials.

Clay Tiles

Clay tiles provide added durability to your roof while providing curb appeal for your home or business. Their weight and material make them more resistant to the high winds that Colorado is known for. Additionally, they tend to be more energy-efficient than asphalt shingles. While the added weight provides more durability, the homeowner may need to update their roof’s support structure if they are switching to clay tiles from a lighter material.


If you’re looking for a great looking roof with minimal maintenance needs, consider metal roofing. Whether it comes in sheets or metal tiles made from aluminum, steel, or copper; metal roofs are quickly growing in popularity. Due to the custom nature of metal roofing, however, it is key to find an expert roofing contractor to perform the installation. That’s where Hennessey Roofing’s expert team comes in!
