We’ve talked about how metal roofing is a great option for your home, especially in Florida. It withstands the winds better than other roofing material. When you choose a metal roof in a color that is ENERGY STAR® rated, it can help cut down on your cooling costs. It lasts longer than shingles and looks good longer too. Today’s metal roofing comes in many styles that work with almost any home. More and more HOA’s are accepting metal roofing as an alternative to asphalt and tile roofing.
Old Metal Roofs
If you never considered a metal roof because you picture a rusty corrugated style roof, then your objection is understandable. Another style that homeowners sometimes find undesirable in Florida because it doesn’t work with the architectural here is the standing seam style. It may look great on a business or barn style home but it doesn’t look great on our houses with a Mediterranean influence. For a long time, the only color for a metal roof was silver. That is also no longer true. Metal roofing comes in many colors.
Modern Options for Metal Roofing in Orlando
Just as architectural shingles come in styles that emulate shake and slate and tile roofing comes in styles from traditional barrel to shake, metal roofing styles are varied too. The most popular metal roofing in Orlando are patterns that emulate tile. Although it doesn’t have quite the dimension when you’re close up on the roof that actual barrel tiles do, it looks great nonetheless. Another option many homeowners choose are shingle style. The shingle style look like slate shingles in that they’re layered like slate. Locally the least common option is a wood shake style metal roof. It’s not as popular as Orlando roofing because wood shake isn’t common in our area.
