Reliable Roofing Comes Down to Material

Roofs are one of the most important aspects of your home or building. They protect us from the elements, including strong winds, rain, and the harsh Florida sun. A sturdy roof is essential to the overall health of your home. That’s why it’s so important to make sure you use the right materials to build and maintain your roof.

While any company can boast that they provide the “best roofs,” it’s important to know what you are looking for. There are many different types of roofing materials available, and quality can vary. We’ve created a short roundup of the best materials to consider using on your property.

Asphalt Shingles

Asphalt shingles are the most popular roofing option used in the United States, and for good reason. Both effective and budget-friendly, shingles are suitable for most climates and offer many different looks and color options. They do, however, usually require more frequent replacement than other materials.

Thermoplastic Polyolefin

TPO is a material commonly used for residential and commercial roofs in Florida. It’s a   single-ply membrane that is made of sheets of rubber and other synthetics. TPO is a popular choice because it is inexpensive, durable, highly reflective, and easy to install. It’s white in color, meaning it is great at keeping your home cool.


Metal is considered one of the most versatile roofing options, with common types including stainless steel, aluminum, and zinc, copper, galvalume, and tin. Some of the great benefits of using metal is its long lifespan and its high durability, including extreme winds in places like Florida.
