Top 5 Roofing Materials for Hot & Humid Climates in Georgia & Florida

Jul 15, 2024

As a homeowner in Georgia or Florida, you don’t need anyone to tell you how hot and humid it can get outside. But what you may need a reminder of is that there are measures you need to take with your home to make sure that it’s properly equipped to handle the climate. Among those measures is investing in the right roofing system for your home, and there are certainly some roofing materials that are better than others when it comes to performance in hot and humid climates. Here are the top five roofing materials to consider for the heat and humidity at your home in Georgia or Florida:

Slate Roofing

Slate roofs are a suitable for climates that are known for higher temperatures because their light color makes them adept at reflecting heat. That makes for less heat transfer into your home, which in turn creates a more comfortable interior temperature throughout the year. It can also lead to lower cooling costs, which is always a plus. This durable and beautifully designed material is an intriguing option if you’re OK with investing in some additional structural support for your home.

Metal Roofing

Metal roofs can withstand hot climates, especially thanks to their light colors. As mentioned with slate roofing, the lighter-colored roofs will work well when it comes to reflecting light and heat. That, of course, takes stress off of your HVAC system as it works to maintain a steady and comfortable temperature inside your home. And less stress on your HVAC means lower energy bills on a monthly basis—which is a huge bonus in Georgia and Florida’s summer months.

Clay Roofing Tiles

Clay roofs have long been a phenomenal choice for homeowners living in hotter climates. Their light color is a factor as it is with slate and metal, but the shape of clay barrel roofing tiles also contributes to their success in such climates. The shape of these tiles allows for a level of airflow that helps them dry, which is helpful in terms of preventing moisture or water damage in high-humidity and/or rainy climates.

Composite Roofing

Because they mimic the look of traditional clay or slate tiles but don’t come with the same weight and maintenance requirements, composite roofs are a popular choice among homeowners. The composite material is wonderfully engineered to provide exceptional durability while resisting UV damage, cracking, fading, or warping over time. The blend of top-notch performance and no maintenance needed is ultimately a homeowner’s dream, especially in the hotter and more humid climates.

Asphalt Shingle Roofing

Asphalt shingle roofs are the most popular among homeowners in a wide variety of climates because of the well-rounded performance they provide everywhere. They’re built to last and are known for their strength and resistance to hail damage and severe weather. Not to mention, when you invest in the asphalt shingles from industry-leading manufacturer Owens Corning, you’ll be getting a roof that is engineered to provide outstanding weather protection that is truly on another level, as it reflects heat, withstands the humidity, and resists moisture and water damage. These shingles are a great choice for your Georgia or Florida home.

He knows a lot about the roofing business and was very helpful. Skyler was the onsite supervisor when our new roof was installed. He was also great and very knowledgeable. We are very happy with our new roof and gutters.
