Serving Florida's Treasure Coast and Space Coast
In recent years, aluminum roof shingles have gained popularity in the residential roofing market in Florida. Not only are aluminum shingles lighter and more durable than asphalt shingles, but they are also manufactured to resemble any type of roofing you can think of, including slate, wood shakes, and architectural shingles.
Aluminum roofing is among the premium choices for metal roofing material partly because it offers superior corrosion resistance to regular steel roofing options. This characteristic makes it a frequent choice in coastal applications.
Aluminum roofing is one of the fastest-growing parts of the roofing industry. Its popularity is increasing everywhere due to its many positive attributes. While a premium metal roof costs more initially than many other roofs, it can be a good investment in the long run. Not only are metal roofs long-lasting, but they can also increase a home’s resale value, decrease a home’s energy consumption, and in some areas, reduce the homeowner’s insurance premiums immensely. These types of roofs come in a wide variety of designs, and styles. You can purchase Aluminum roofing in shapes that imitate asphalt shingles, tile, and much more.
Aluminum roofs are also exceptionally durable and long-lasting. However, damage can occur in some instances. Aluminum is more prone to denting than steel roofing, caused by hail, walking on the roof, or fallen tree limbs. However, the damage usually will not affect the performance of the roof, simply the aesthetics.
Aluminum roofing is among the lightest of all roofing materials, weighing as little as 45 lbs. per square (100 square feet). Because it’s so lightweight, installing an aluminum roof over the top of an existing roof is a viable option. This could save you quite a bit of money on a metal roof installation since you wouldn’t have the expense of removing the existing layers of roofing. Aluminum is a very durable material that is easy to work with, making them ideal for both the building owner and the installer.
