BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – As most know and have been aware, since the closures of COVID-19 in 2020, more people are now working from home have focused more on home improvements. With the increased shortages still present from COVID-19 shutdowns, the roofing industry is not exempt.

Metal roofing has become a top selected roof for homeowners here in Florida that are looking to invest in the future of their home. The metal roof lasts on average, double that of a standard shingle roof, providing less time between new roof installations.

Many homeowners are aware of the insurance crisis that has taken place last year and continuing into this year. Homeowners insurance companies have sent notice letters of non-renewal or cancellation due to the age or condition of a shingle roof on their home.

These insurance companies have pressed homeowners to have a new roof installed with proper documentation in order to receive appropriate coverage of their homes or to have their policy discontinued, leaving them without insurance coverage on their home.

Majority of these notice letters have been sent to homeowners with shingle roofs that are aged 15 years or older. In some cases, I have heard of homeowners receiving these insurance letters for shingle roofs aged as low as 10 years.

If choosing to have a new metal roof installed on your home, it has become clear that having and keeping homeowner insurance will be a perk of having this type of roof when compared to a shingle roof here in the state of Florida.

Top 5 reasons to choose a metal roof over a shingle roof:

■ Typical lifespan of shingles are 17-22 years, metal is approximately 30+ years
■ Metal roofs are resistant to winds up to 140-160MPH, whereas shingles are typically only rated to up to 130MPH winds.
■ Metal roofing is more energy efficient for your home as it tends to keep your attic space cooler than a shingle roof.
■ Metal roofs are highly resistant to leaks when compared to other traditional styles of roofing such as shingles or concrete tile.
■ Metal roofing enhances your home’s curb appeal dramatically.

Receiving a couple of estimates from reputable companies is a great way to compare pricing, wait times and ensure you are getting the best value for your investment.
