Choosing the Best Roofing Materials for Tampa’s Climate

Jul 03, 2024

As a resident of Tampa, Florida, you certainly know all about the hot and humid climate and the factors you need to consider when investing in an upgrade to your home’s exterior. Perhaps there’s no bigger decision on that front than choosing the best roofing material for your roof replacement project. After all, you need to have a roofing system on your home that can handle the heat and not allow the outdoor temperatures to impact the indoor temperatures of your home. At the same time, you need a strong, durably crafted roof that can withstand all that Mother Nature may throw its way during the summer—and especially throughout hurricane season.

With all of that in mind, let the team at Roofing Done Wright walk you through the selection process and help you find the right roofing material to deal with the Tampa climate.

What to Consider When Choosing the Best Roofing Material for Your Tampa Home

As a homeowner in Florida, there are a variety of factors to keep in mind when you’re looking through your roofing material options ahead of a big installation or replacement project. The intense heat and humidity as well as the prevalence of hurricanes make it paramount that you find a roof that is durable, energy efficient, and wind resistant. Plus, you need a system that is resistant to water damage and the problems that come along with it. Because you know your roof will be exposed to moisture constantly—whether it’s due to rainfall or simply the humidity—and that can lead to problems like mold, mildew, and algae growth. When you’ve chosen the right roof material, you can be confident in your system’s ability to hold strong against the heat, high wind speeds, heavy rainfall, and moisture-related issues.

The good news is that you’ll have no shortage of options when it comes to choosing the right roofing material for Tampa’s climate. Metal and tile are certainly popular choices because of their ability to reflect heat and hold strong against severe weather year after year. But another fantastic choice—and a more cost-effective one—is asphalt shingles. The right asphalt shingles can be a major help to your home as it navigates the Florida climate.

What Makes Asphalt Shingles the Right Choice for Your Home in Tampa?

While asphalt shingles are an affordable choice for your Tampa home, that doesn’t mean you’re sacrificing performance for a good price. These roofing systems are built to last and are known for their strength and resistance to hail damage and severe weather. Of course, that’s what you get with asphalt shingles at the base level. When you invest in the phenomenally crafted asphalt shingles from industry-leading manufacturer Owens Corning, you’ll be getting shingles that are engineered to provide outstanding weather protection that is truly on another level. These systems make for a great choice when you’re looking to find the right roofing material for your Tampa home.

The Team to Rely On for Your Asphalt Shingle Roofing Project

As much as you can expect performance-wise from the wonderfully crafted Owens Corning asphalt shingles, proper installation is a must if you’re going to truly get that performance. The good news is that as a Tampa resident, you don’t have to look far for a reliable roofing contractor that can provide you with a flawless installation of your new roof. Roofing Done Wright would be happy to provide you with the perfect roofing project you need to set your home up to handle the Tampa climate year in and year out for a long time to come. If you’re ready to start your roof replacement project by choosing the best roofing material for your Tampa home, reach out to our team today.
