Roof pitch or incline angle will determine product choices allowed in Dunedin FL. Find roofing contractors willing to explain the best option for your situation. For example shingles cannot be used a roof that is too flat or water will be absorbed underneath the shingle by osmosis. Generally sheet roofing is a better choice for very flat or low incline roofs.
Shingle nailing patterns define how many nails per shingle as well as placement that building inspectors require for Dunedin FL. Find a roofing contractor that is licensed and files a building permit which will include the nail pattern and shingles he/she intends to use.

Underlayment material is also required to meet building code requirements. In recent years this has changed from simple tar paper to a peel and stick rubber-like material that is many times superior. If properly installed, the underlayment itself can provide a complete water barrier before the shingles or surface roof materials are even applied. Inspectors will actually inspect underlayment before the next layer is installed.
In cases where weather conditions or schedule demands require roofing proceed uninterrupted before the underlayment inspection, most inspectors will expect photos and affidavit from properly licensed roofing contractor that verify compliance with regulations for Dunedin FL.
