Deciding on which type of roofing material to go for can be quite a challenging exercise. Often this will be determined by the area in which you stay and the weather conditions there. Roofing materials for Bradenton homes will need to be very durable to withstand extreme winds and the possibility of tropical storms, with the odd chance of hurricanes reaching the area.
Having worked in the area for years, Roofs For Life is best placed to know which roofing materials are recommended for homes in the area. Below is our list of popular roofing materials for popular Bradenton home styles.
Asphalt shingles is the most popular roofing material for good reason. It’s a cost-effective option that doesn’t skimp on durability, can maintain a long lifespan and is very versatile in terms of aesthetics. Certain types of shingles, like architectural shingles, allow for customization in a range of shapes and colors, making it possible to mimic more premium roofing options.
Metal has grown in popularity as a roofing option for a number of reasons. In our experience installing roofs at Roofs For Life, the strength of metal is unmatched, as are the maintenance costs over time. The upfront cost of a metal roof may be more, but you’re bound to save over the lifespan of the roof – not just money but time and effort too. They also come in a great variety of options, which include stone-coated metal, single seam and metal shakes.
If you’re after that premium look for your home, then you’ll want to go the tile route. Beyond aesthetics, clay and concrete tiles are also made to last decades, and you may never have to replace your roof again in your lifetime. It does come at a cost though – a relatively big one. One consideration to make when going for a tiled roof is the structure of your home and the weight it can bear, as tiles do tend to get quite heavy and can cause strain.
