Tallahassee Roofing: Article About Products and Services
When exposed to high levels of sun, strong wind, stormy conditions and general wear and tear, a roof's shingles may begin to peel or discolor. Pebbles may collect in gutters, indicating shingle wear, and mold or algae may appear on or underneath shingles, indicating moisture penetration. Insects or small animals may nest within soffits, further compromising a roof's integrity. Additionally, a homeowner may notice small leaks or water stains appearing in the attic or on walls inside the home.

Metal offers one of the largest lifespans of 50 years. It is reflective of the sun and heat and is resistant to high winds, snow and rain. Metal is also resistant to mold and algae, making it a top pick for roofs. However, for these benefits, metal roofs can be costly.
Tile and slate offer high resilience against harsh weather elements and offer a typical lifespan of 50 years. Tile and slate are heavy and may require additional roof framing for support.
Wood is often considered the most aesthetically pleasing roofing material but may only be allowed according to certain building and fire codes. It provides the same home protection as any other roof but may be more susceptible to weathering and sun damage.
Lastly, asphalt is the most commonly used roofing material used in the U.S., comprising over 75 percent of all roofs in America. Asphalt is the most affordable option, requires minimal or inexpensive repairs, and can provide the basic protection any home needs. Homeowners are advised to contact a roofing professional to help determine what materials and services work best to suit their preferences.
