Whether you’re looking for a Jacksonville roofing contractor for roof leaks, roof repair, maintenance or new installs, figuring out the style of roof you want for your house is going to be a major decision in the process. There are many different styles to choose from, but as you can probably tell by looking around your neighborhood (especially if you’ve traveled to other parts of the country) there’s a distinct Florida or “tropical” look here.
Jacksonville Roofing Styles
The warm and tropical climate of Florida demands the type of roofing that will withstand the environmental factors coming from outside while keeping your cooling costs lower by protecting the environment inside as well.
Here’s a look at some of the most popular Florida roofing styles that provide rugged durability and versatile aesthetics:
- Asphalt Shingle. If you have a sloped roof, this is a popular style of roofing due to its economical pricing. Add accessories such as enhanced ridging or seamless gutters to boost the amount of money you save on energy and efficiency. Plus, asphalt shingling is available in many different colors so you can stand out from other homes in your Jacksonville neighborhood. Unfortunately, asphalt shingling doesn’t always provide you the best protection from the elements. It is susceptible to the type of high winds common in hurricanes and tropical storms, so if you’re looking for long-term roofing solutions, this might not be the best option.
