Concrete tiles can be a good alternative if your home is not strong enough to support the weight of clay tiles or slate tiles.
Concrete tiles are often designed to look like other materials such as cedar shake, slate tile, or even wood stakes. They aren’t as susceptible to rot than other roof types.
Like clay tiling, concrete tiles can also withstand Florida’s hot climate and are also an environmentally-friendly roofing option for homeowners.
Metal Roofs – The best roof for Florida homes
Metal roofs are the most effective for Florida homes. They can reflect sunlight and keep your home cooler for longer periods. Metal roofs are lighter than concrete and clay tiles making them an excellent choice for residential construction. Even though it is rare to experience cold winters in Florida, metal roofs can be used even in those conditions.
This type of roofing is not only strong and resilient, but it can also reduce your electricity costs during the hot Florida days.
A metal roof is likely to last 50 years due to its high resistance to fungus or moss.

Slate roofs are a great choice if you want a durable roofing material for your home.
Because slate roofs are durable and resistant to insects and harsh rains, many old houses in the US, especially Florida, still have them.
Slate roofs offer many design options and are available in a variety of colors.
