Your roof’s job is to protect your home from the wind, rain, ice, snow and sun. In order to do that important job properly, your roof is actually a complex system of individual components that must all work together to create a powerful barrier against rain, snow, ice and wind. At Crosby Roofing, we are the Ft. Worth Texas, roofing contractors that treat your roof as a complete system, from the bare decking up to the ridge ventilation — even the gutter system. That is the only way to ensure that your home is properly protected against the elements.
Crosby Roofing installs roofing systems from the nation’s leading manufacturers of roofing materials, including GAF and Owens Corning.
We have earned the designation of “MasterElite” roofing contractor from GAF, one of the few roofing contractors in Fort Worth or Dallas area to be so honored. We are also an Owens Corning “Preferred Contractor.” This means our roofing installation crews are trained and certified to stringent manufacturer’s standards. That’s vitally important in this industry: roofs installed by uncertified roofers can void the manufacturer’s warranty.

Asphalt shingles are still the most popular choice for roof coverings in America. The positive aspects of asphalt shingles include low installation and maintenance costs. Roofs made out of these shingles come in different grades. The better the grade, the longer the life expectancy, which can range from 15 to more than 30 years. The asphalt covering is actually a composite made up of either a fiberglass or rag mat with asphalt, which is covered with colored mineral granules. Multi-layered shingles give this otherwise thin material improved dimension making it resemble other, thicker materials. Asphalt shingles also come in a variety of colors and styles. Individual shingles may be replaced if damaged. An additional advantage of asphalt shingles is that in certain circumstances, they can be installed over an existing roof of asphalt shingles, eliminating the need to remove the old roof.
Lightweight, durable and flexible in terms of look, metal is becoming a choice for those who are looking for a longer service life. More expensive than most other materials (except for slate) metal comes in a wide range of shapes, styles and colors. It can imitate the look of tile, asphalt or slate, be colored in virtually any manner and is available in panels or shingles. Metal roofs often last for 40 years or more and most come with a lifetime warranty.
This material is extremely durable and graceful, coming in a variety of looks, while offering low maintenance costs. Typical colors are grey, black and red. Like tile, slate carries the onus of extra weight and this high-quality roofing material can be expensive. However a slate roof can last over 100 years with little or no maintenance.
Aesthetically, homeowners are drawn to the look, texture and color choices of tile. Styles include mission, rounded and flat. Priced around the same as wood, tile is made of either concrete or clay and normally lasts over 50 years. Although there’s little maintenance necessary, the underpinning for your roof must be able to handle the extra weight that tile carries and replacement costs are high.
Wood roofing, which comes in cedar, red wood and cypress, lasts longer and is more expensive than asphalt. It can last for up to thirty-five years. Many people enjoy it for the natural look it provides. Fire resistant shingles are pressure treated with preservatives are safest and last longest. With age, wood may become brittle or shrink, causing the roof covering to be compromised. Individual shingles may be replaced as needed.
Choosing which type of roof is right for you will depend upon numerous factors, including your budget, taste and needs. Take time to consider the right roofing material that will deliver what you want. And be sure to let the experts from Crosby Roofing help you select the best choice for your home’s needs.
