Home Roofs In Florida: The Best Types Of Roofs

When it comes to replacing a roof in Florida, you have several options. The best option for you will depend on what you need, but the three most important factors are cost, durability, and style. We’ll discuss these considerations for each type of roof available in Florida.

Asphalt Shingle Roofing

The classic choice among residential roofing types. asphalt tiles, which are made of asphalt on top of a mat of fiberglass, are the most common residential roofing materials. Asphalt shingles are popular because of their low cost. They can be purchased for as little as $4 or $5 per square foot.

Shingles have a lifespan of between 20-25 years. While they are not as resistant to hurricanes as metal roofing or tiles they can still withstand wind speeds up to 130mph. They also resist water damage. They’re resistant to hail damage and storm debris because they are made from asphalt and covered in protective granules.

Asphalt shingles are a great way to create a cozy, welcoming atmosphere in your home. It’s crucial to choose the right type of roof shingle when using this roofing material. 3-tab shingles are cheaper but more fragile and prone to damage. Most experts recommend architectural shingles because they offer better protection for your home, and also create a dynamic and textured appearance on your roof.

Clay and Concrete Roof Tiles

Tiles are a great option if longevity is the main concern for your new roof. Clay tiles can last more than 100 years. Concrete tiles are good for 50 years. Local contractors can create a timeless roof by overlapping the tiles on your roof. This will direct water away from your house. There are many styles of tile roofs, but Spanish and French tiles are the most common. With a variety of tile roofs, you can create virtually any style for your tile roof. However, tile is best suited to Spanish or Mediterranean-style homes.

Tiles are often heavier than shingles and can withstand wind uplift better during storms. However, because they are more fragile, they can be damaged by branches or hail during storms. Even so, replacing a cracked tile can be a relatively inexpensive repair. The cost is perhaps the greatest obstacle to getting a new tile roof. Tile is the most expensive roof type in Florida. Concrete tiles cost between five and eight dollars per sq. foot. Clay tiles range from seven to ten dollars.

Metal Roofs

Metal is the most popular type of roof in Florida. Metal roofs are often associated with heavy, rusted barns. Many people think that this is what contractors will install on their homes. In the last 20 years, Metal roofing has experienced a revival.

Metal roofing has become synonymous with style and security. standing seam is a new type of metal roofing that has been specifically designed for residential structures. It offers sleek and neat aesthetics, challenging what people imagine when they think of metal roofs.

Metal roofing is now more durable and attractive than ever. Its average lifespan is between 40 and 70 years. It is better than ever suited for coastal Florida. Metal roofs in Florida were once at risk of rusting, but new metal roofing technologies have eliminated this problem. Metal roofs in Florida are almost always coated with aluminum. Aluminum is highly resistant against rust so your metal roof will stay in pristine condition even if you place it right on the seashore and expose it to saltwater daily.

What’s the drawback? Metal roofing is also a luxurious material, just like tile. Luxury materials are expensive. Metal roofing prices are determined by the type of roofing material used. In general, however, you should expect to pay between $10 and $25 per square foot.
