Having a new roof installed on your house is a great way to give it some curb appeal. Like adding a dapper hat to your stylish outfit, an Apopka roof replacement is the perfect accessory for your home.
Your roof makes up approximately 40% of your home’s visual space and can have a big impact on its curb appeal. So when it’s time to have a new roof installed, you should consider all of your options. At Advantage Roofing, our installation specialists can advise you on the many types of materials we offer for your Apopka roof replacement.
What Types Of Roofing Materials Are There?
When you think of replacing your roof, you may think asphalt shingles are your only option, but there are some other materials that you should consider. Let’s start with asphalt since it’s the most popular type of roofing material for homes.
This type of roofing material is the most common for homes because it adds a sufficient amount of protection at the most cost-effective price point. It won’t last forever, but an asphalt shingle roof can last 20-30 years. Keep in mind that you may have to have roof repairs done periodically, especially after a big storm.
In Florida, you know that storm season lasts for months so your roof should be able to sustain a good amount of wind and hail. Lightning is also a possibility so you should figure the cost of repairs into your budget if you’re thinking about using asphalt shingles for your Apopka roof replacement.
A tile roof will add considerable curb appeal to your home. Tile comes in many colors and is more durable than asphalt. Tile is also extremely heat-resistant, making it a great choice for our climate. With its stylistic edge, tile also comes with a bigger price tag than other roofing materials. You shouldn’t have to have as many repairs, however, so it’s a good investment if you’re looking for a long-term roof that will set your home apart from your neighbors.
Flat roofs are not just for commercial buildings. If you look around, you’ll notice more and more homes are using flat roofs in new construction as the mid-century modern style is coming back around. A flat roof isn’t necessarily something that you can do for your Apopka roof replacement as it would require structural changes to your home.
But if you’re adding on to your house, building a garage or a patio, a flat roof may be a good option. They’re cost-effective, durable, and make a nice place to sip a cup of coffee in the morning or a cocktail at sunset.
Metal sheets are extremely durable and weather resistant, so they may be a good option for our Florida climate. A metal roof can add rustic, farmhouse charm, or an industrial modern feel. Metal roofs are easy to maintain and can last longer than asphalt shingle roofs.
If you are interested in adding a metal roof to your home, look into sound-proofing materials that we can add under the metal sheets that will lessen the noise of rain and wind.
