The Best Roofing Materials for Coastal Homes

Dec 02, 2021

A roofer installs metal standing seam roofing on a residential home.There are special considerations when it comes to choosing a roofing system for your coastal home and finding the materials that will hold up best in this unique climate is important for the longevity and protection of your property. Because of the wet conditions and salty air, many traditional roofing systems are prone to breaking down or deteriorating faster than normal. However, certain roofing materials will perform better than others and offer a superior long-term investment for your home.

Roofing Options for Coastal Areas

One of the most popular roofing styles for homes in coastal areas is clay tile roofing. This isn’t just an aesthetic preference. Clay tiles naturally resist deterioration from the salty air, offering lasting protection for your home. Clay tile roofing is also heavy and durable, ensuring it will stand the test of time on your coastal home.

Another popular roofing material for coastal homes is metal roofing. Metal is another extremely durable roofing option that will stand the test of time in harsh weather conditions. From heavy downpours to high winds, metal roofing will keep your home protected while withstanding the coastal climate. What’s more, metal roofing is an energy-efficient roofing option that helps deflect the sun’s heat for warmer coastal areas.

Other roofing options, including traditional asphalt shingle roofing, can also be a good option for coastal areas. Some asphalt shingles are specifically designed to perform well in hot, humid, and windy climates and are available at a very cost-effective price point.
