Florida has a wide variety of home styles. There are older homes that may be Mediterranean or Victorian inspired, newer craftsman style, mid-century ranches and newer modern homes throughout Orlando. Whether your home currently has asphalt, metal or tile roofing, you should consider the right material for your home, not just automatically replace what you have with the same thing.
Historic Homes Deserve the Right Roof
If you have one of the historic homes, you should choose a roof that compliments its style. That may mean choosing a designer shingle for a Victorian style home. If your home has a cedar shake roof and you’re tired of the maintenance, GAF offers several shake-look designer shingles including the Glenwood® and Woodland® line shingles. Concrete tile roofing comes in some realistic looking options. Keeping in line with the traditions of the home will help the home’s curb appeal and eventual resale if you sell the home.
Spanish Style and Mediterranean Homes
Your Spanish or Mediterranean style home deserves tile roofing. Tile roofing contributes to the overall look of the home and emphasizes its style. Plus, when you choose tile for your roof replacement, you won’t have to worry about another roof for decades to come. Just keep it well-maintained and it may even outlast the home itself.
Ranch and Modern Homes Have Many Options Too
Depending what you’re looking for out of a roof and your personal style, you have many options for your ranch or modern style home. Although asphalt shingles are still a common choice, there are other materials to consider. Today’s metal roofing provides exceptional protection against wind and looks great. It’s available in many colors and styles to compliment your home.
Cement tile roofing is another great option as it can mimic many roofing materials. Its longevity is only one of its many benefits. It’s also wind, impact and fire resistant. Depending on your home’s style and exterior colors, your roofing company can recommend a solid or color blend roofing tiles.
Contemporary style homes are increasing in popularity throughout Florida. Many have low slope or flat roofs. If you have a flat roof, you should look at a TPO or other light color roofing material that will reflect back much of the sun’s rays to lower your cooling costs. Low slope roofs look great with metal roofing. Your roofing company can let you know the right material for your contemporary home’s roof.
