Asphalt shingles, historically, were the most popular roofing material for homes in Florida. More homeowners are looking to metal as a roofing material option, and for good reason.
Although the initial investment for a metal roof is greater than that of a shingle roof, metal roofs have benefits that make them especially versatile for Florida homes. They are one of the most durable materials to wisthstand harsh weather conditions. They are extremely wind resistant. They do not absorb moisture, and they can withstand the heat of the sun. These factors mean this material can withstand not only strong tropical storms, but also our consistently warm Florida climate.
Not only can roofs of this material better withstand our climate, they also have an overall longer lifespan than their shingle or tile counterparts. Metal roofs have a 30-50 year lifespan. Certain metal materials, like copper, can last nearly 100 years. Because this material doesn’t absorb water or moisture, it tends to require less repair and attention as it ages.
As metal has become an increasingly popular roofing material product, homeowners have more options than ever in terms of the look and aesthetic of their new metal roof. This material comes in different colors, shapes and sizes. Interlocking metal shingles give the appearance of asphalt shingles or wood shake.
Lastly, metal roofs make positive contributions to the environment. Because the metal reflects heat, the metal roof will not keep the heat as long, therefore keeping your home cooler. This will help save on your home’s energy consumption.
