A Guide to Choosing Residential Roofing Materials, Kernersville, North Carolina

If your current roof is showing signs of wear and tear, it may be time to have a replacement installed. However, you're not obligated to choose the same roofing material for your new roof; there are several options that might suit you better, depending on your needs. Price & Sons Roofing, the leading repair and installation service in Kernersville, NC, discusses some of the most popular residential roofing materials.

Your Options for Residential Roofing Materials


Asphalt shingles are the most common type of roofing material in North America, largely because they are lightweight, inexpensive, and fairly resistant to wind and fire. However, they are not as durable or eco-friendly as other materials, but they can be installed on roofs with a steep slope.


Wood shingles give your home an attractive natural or rustic look. They offer good wind resistance and can be applied to steep roofs, but they have one of the shortest life spans of any roofing material. They are moderately inexpensive but require occasional maintenance to prevent rot and mildew.

Clay Tile

RoofingClay tile is a durable, attractive material that gives your home a traditional Mediterranean look. It needs very little maintenance but is heavy and requires additional framing to support it properly. While it’s relatively expensive, it’s also long lasting and provides exceptional fire resistance.


Metal roofing is the most durable residential roofing material. While copper can be quite expensive, steel is moderately priced. They’re lightweight, 100% recyclable, and resistant to both wind and fire. They can also be painted and shaped to mimic other materials.

Price & Sons Roofing in Kernersville can help you choose a roofing material that best meets your needs and fits your budget. Visit their website to schedule an appointment, or call (336) 869-6921 to discuss your options with a friendly, knowledgeable repair professional today.
