Top Roofing Materials in St. Pete, Florida

  1. Asphalt Shingle Roof

Asphalt shingles are the most popular roofing materials in America for several reasons. They are relatively inexpensive yet strong, available in many colors and shapes, and can be fireproofed to enhance fire resistance. Their light weight eliminates the need for extra-strong decking, and they are easy to install. Asphalt shingles typically last 15 to 25 years.

  1. Clay Tile Roof

Clay tiles have a classic look that enhances curb appeal and is suitable for various architectural styles. Installation is easy, and they require only occasional maintenance. While more expensive than asphalt, their long-term benefits often outweigh the initial cost. Clay tiles are non-combustible, eliminating the need for fireproofing, and can withstand extreme weather conditions, lasting up to 50 years.

  1. Metal Roof

Metal roofs are fire-resistant and can withstand extreme weather conditions. Available in a wide range of colors and shapes, metal sheets and tiles have a lightweight design, reducing the need for an extra-strong roof frame. They are highly durable, energy-efficient due to high solar reflectance, and have a lifespan of over 75 years. Installation is easy, requiring minimal maintenance, and they are recyclable.
