Florida Roofing Concerns

solar-panels-on-the-roofFlorida homeowners have no shortage of things to consider when it comes to their roofs. First of all, is the climate. Florida is a large state and climate does vary, but by and large the state will host high heat and even higher humidity. And of course no one can overlook the strong thunderstorms which often rock the state. And they bring threats other than rain and lightening as well. Strong wind can damage a roof just as well as a leak can. It can rip roofing tiles free and cause tree limbs or entire trees to fall.

It’s naturally important to consider the climate when you pick out what type of roof you want for your home. But there are other considerations to make as well. Energy efficient roofs are popular in Florida. This is due, in large part, to the $1,500 in rebates available for new homes which are Energy Star inspected as well as certified by a H.E.R.S. (home energy rating system) rater. Energy efficient roofing systems may have high initial expenses but combined with the rebate and savings on heating and coolings costs down the road—the expense will be more than made up.
