Roofing granules are an essential component of the roof. Aside from aesthetic purposes, the asphalt roofing granules also function to protect your shingles’ integrity from the elements, especially from ultraviolet (UV) radiation.

The 3 Best Steep Sloped Roof Materials

Steep-sloped roofs offer plenty of benefits, including being effective against steep roof water runoff. When selecting a material for your steep-sloped roof, you need to carefully consider your options. Steep sloped roof materials have different properties, primarily their weight, lifespan, and appearance. Steep slope asphalt shingle doesn't usually last as long as tile, but is generally lightweight, basic in appearance, and less expensive. Steep slope concrete tile is heavier, and more costly, but lasts about twice as long as shingles, and steep slope clay tile is similar to concrete, only coming in a greater variety of colors.
