How to Change Your Roof Shingles to Metal Roofing in Florida
Updated: Mar 5
After a severe storm or hurricane, you may find yourself in the position of needing a new roof like the building pictured above in Bunnell, FL. Maybe you don't need a full roof replacement, but want a more reliable roof to withstand Florida coastal storms. After Hurricane Ian, many homeowners in Daytona Beach and New Smyrna Beach faced this decision. With pieces of roofing missing on a number of local Volusia and Flager county houses, it's easy to understand why switching to metal roofing might become more popular.
Three Reasons to Consider a Switch to Metal Roofing
Fire Resistance: metal has a high level of fire resistance. Metal roofs are rated for a Class A fire rating with the highest level of resistance. It is effective against heat and fire exposure.
Impact Resistance: metal roofing is impact tested. It can be dented by small pieces of hail but it will not puncture. This is precisely what you need to withstand nasty Florida weather. Hail can occur in any storm.
Wind Resistance: wind speed ratings for metal roofs are impressive. They can range from 110 mph up to about 160 mph. It is an excellent choice for coastal living.
A metal roof stands up to the test of time. It can last up to 50 years with very little maintenance! Color, thickness, and shape are some options for metal roofing. Lighter colors will offer better UV resistance.
