Then you can decide if they are the best fit for your home. Three tiles to consider are asphalt, fiberglass, and organic.
This type of shingle are usually the most popular as they have several sub types and a variety of color and style options. Some of the most popular colors are wood based.

This type of shingle are higher quality than asphalt and still come in a variety of styles. Unlike asphalt, this tile is typically waterproof, and therefore a bit more resistant to weather of all kinds. This means that the tiles will last longer than other brands. However, this kind can be fairly expensive depending on the grade and color you pick. In addition, they cannot be fixed on their own, but will almost always require professional care.
This type is made from organic material like wood or recycled materials. They can be water proof, but are made with an expiration date. They are usually reasonably priced, but due to their material, will erode over time. The average lifespan for organic tiles is about twenty years. They do not usually break down differently either, whole clusters tending to erode at the same time. This means that you have to have all new tile installed after their time is up. In addition, they are very susceptible to water and moisture. This can speed up their breakdown and cause their life span to shorten.
