Are you needing to choose a roof material for your Central Florida home? With the wide variety of options, it can get confusing and time-consuming. Below, you will find more details about the different roof options you can choose.


This option is usually the most inexpensive but may require re-roofing, as time goes on. If you are looking for the least expensive approach to your new roof, shingles are a great choice. An extra benefit of choosing shingles is that they have many customization options. There are many different kinds of shingles, including asphalt and polymer, to name a select few. Shingles are a great affordable pick to protect your home, while still reducing the Florida heat and humidity.


Metal roofs are commonly considered a middle of the road roof material, both for cost and lifespan. Metal roofing has certainly evolved from it’s early days of simple panels being gusseted down. These days, metal roofing is made from high-quality steel. The strong structure of a steel roof will save you from having to deal with most roof repairs. Metal roofs are also great for reflecting heat off of the home, which is great for the Central Florida climate. A perfect balance of protection and low cost, metal roofing is becoming increasingly popular in Florida.


Tiles are an especially popular choice, especially in central Florida. Facing warm and humid Florida weather, tiles provide a strong foundation for your home’s roof. Tiles are able to last, in most cases, up to 50 years! The cost of tiles will run a little bit more than shingles, but they also require less maintenance over time. Clay tile is one of the most popular roof styles you will see in central Florida. The one drawback to tile roofs is that you won’t want to have anyone up there walking on those tiles, as they can be prone to breakage when walked on.


Finally, we have a slate roof, an increasingly popular choice for the homes that can support it. A concern, when considering a slate roof is the strength of your home’s foundation. A check will have to be done by our professionals to assess if your home is capable of holding this type of roofing. However, for the houses that can hold the weight, slate roofing lasts an extremely long time, upwards of 100 years.
