The roof significantly impacts the aesthetics and durability of any luxury home. More importantly, it affects the safety of your house and protects you and your properties from the elements. While your homeowner association may regulate the style and color of your roof, it’s up to you to decide the best material.
So, which is the best roofing material for a luxury home? Most are, but it largely depends on the style of your custom home. Here are some of the top roofing materials.
Metal and Stone-Coated Metal
A luxury home would benefit significantly from installing metal roofing. Unlike the corrugated tin roofs you remember in old pictures, modern ones are far more advanced. They are available in durable materials such as copper, aluminum, steel, and zinc.
Apart from durability, metal roofings also offer versatility. They are available in many styles that are very different from the old, boring, corrugated ones. They also come in so many colors and textures that it’s just a matter of choosing. You can also opt for the stone-coated metal that imitates clay tiles, wood shakes, or asphalt shingles.
Wood Shingles and Shakes
Wood shingles and shakers are other excellent roofing materials that would add a touch of sophistication to an already luxurious home in Orlando. And wood shingles are machine cut, which makes them smooth and uniform not just for a single piece but the entire roof. On the other hand, wood shakes are hand-cut, which gives them a rustic appearance.
Wood shingles and shakes come in various woods, such as cypress, redwood, cedar, and pressure-treated pine. And they are all recyclable. Either of them can complement your home perfectly, depending on the style.
Concrete remains one of the greatest inventions since the wheel. It is a core part of modern construction and continues to build today’s society. When molded into a roofing material that resembles clay tiles, it offers the strength of stone and the protection of a solid roof. When blended with clay fibers, it adds even more strength and longevity.
Despite seeming like heavy stones, concrete tiles are lightweight and easy to install. You can expect them to serve you for over 50 years without replacement. The best part is they come in various styles, colors, and textures. Additionally, the light-colored ones reflect sunlight, reducing heat in your indoor space and increasing energy efficiency.
You have a wide array of options in regard to roofing material for your Luxury home. Many of them provide style versatility and can match your home’s theme. But before settling on one, it’s best that you talk to your custom home builder. They can help you select one that will serve you well and, at the same time, enhance your home’s beauty.
