Anyone who is a homeowner will likely need to replace their roof at some point. When that time comes, it's essential to know which type of roof will be able to perform the best. Florida roofs must hold up against numerous extreme weather conditions, including excessive heat, high levels of humidity, heavy rainstorms, wind, and hurricanes. For this reason, clay tile roofs are a common choice among homeowners. Although this roofing material is costly to install and repair, when installed correctly it requires less maintenance and can outlast any other type of roofing material, lasting between 50 to 100 years.
Another type of durable roofing material is metal. Metal roofs are becoming more popular because of their ability to withstand harsh weather conditions and because of the little amount of maintenance they require. Flat roofs are another type of roofing system that is very common among residents in various style of homes. This type of roofing material can last up to 30 years with proper installation and good drainage. Finally, although laminate shingle roofs are not known for lasting the longest, they are a cost-effective option due to their low price point. When a laminate shingle roof needs to be replaced, it won’t cost as much as replacing a roof made of tile or metal.

With the rising costs of energy, many people are focused on building energy-efficient homes. While insulation and HVAC systems are among the top concerns for maximizing the energy efficiency of a home, the roof also makes a big difference. The first thing to know about roofs is that they absorb heat. The more heat they absorb the more heat that is transferred into the home and the harder and HVAC system must work. Although lighter colors of roofing materials can help, the level of heat absorbency has more to do with the type of roofing material. A light-colored laminate shingle with specialized reflective paint will still absorb more heat than tile or metal roofing.
The second aspect of the roofing system to keep in mind is emissivity. This refers to how well a material emits heat. The higher the emissivity, the better it will be able to keep surfaces cool. Metal roofs are a cut above the other roofing systems in both their absorbency and emissivity. Because of their ability to reflect light and heat, they will keep a home cooler underneath, which means substantial savings on energy costs.
