FREE ESTIMATE(623) 471-7096

Living in the Phoenix area, you may experience high, soaring summer temperatures reaching up to 120 degrees. With this in mind, it is crucial to consider what roofing material will be best for your home. In addition, the type of shingles on your roof will play a central role in the lifespan and efficiency of your roof. If your shingle roof system is looking a little worn down, it might be good to look into a new type of shingle material. In this article, we will be looking into the best roofing shingles for heat and hot climates, with the intention to help you choose the right type of shingle for your next roofing project.

Best Roof Shingles For Hot Climates

Shingle roofing is what the majority of Phoenix homeowners and business owners choose over other types of roofing materials. This is because shingle roofing is diverse and appealing. 

More importantly, traditional roof shingles perform well when it comes to keeping your home interiors cool. However, it is crucial to consider that due to constant exposure to external environmental factors such as extreme heat from the sun, shingle roofing has limited durability compared to other roofing types. 

The best roofing materials for extreme heat are metal, clay, slate, or rubber roofing shingles. Let’s take a look and see why. 

First, metal roofing shingles can do well in extreme heat because metal is reflective and considered a roofing material that keeps your roof cool. Metal roofing is also said to improve your roof’s energy efficiency. 

The second is slate roofing. Slate is made of stone which makes it an incredibly durable material. Slate roofs can sometimes last over 200 years! This is because slate roofing doesn’t saturate from water and is fireproof as well. 

Next is clay roof shingles. These shingles are thermal resistant and are fireproof. Clay tile roofing is an excellent choice for homeowners who appreciate a rustic type feel, as well as those who want to cool down. 

Lastly, we have rubber roofing. Rubber roofing is considered to be a more affordable alternative to slate or clay roofing. Rubber can mirror the effects and look of slate and clay and is also highly energy efficient. 

No matter what type of shingle roofing you prefer, the most important part of installing it is finding the right roofing company that can do the job right. Luckily, Pinnacle Roofing is here to help.

  • I was in a hurry to replace my roof because Tesla solar was installing my system and had moved up my installation date. Pinnacle was able to bump up my roof installation a few weeks in order to accommodate my solar install. I really appreciated this. Everyone with whom I dealt was professional. I was happy with my new roof.

  • Had plywood and surface damage on a large 400 sq foot second story 29 year old walk deck/balcony. Pinnacle Roofing did an amazing job repairing existing plywood, adding a second layer of plywood and applying a four step Polycoat coating. The entire staff was helpful and in constant communication with me. I had twelve different companies come out over three months for estimates and was completely satisfied with my choice and the end results from Pinnacle.
