Metal Roofs for Central Florida

What is a Metal Roof?

Metal roofs are the most sought after type of new roof material in the Central Florida market today. From Sanford to Kissimmee, they are getting extremely popular because they are lightweight, look great, and last longer than any other roof types. Metal roofs are typically made of steel or aluminum. Titanium, copper and zinc may also be utilized as part of specific compositional applications for construction. Steel material for residential uses is exceptionally lightweight, with the heaviest item weighing around 1.5 pounds for each square foot installed. Metal roofing systems use interlocking pieces or panels that connect seamlessly in place.

Metal roofing panels can be a great investment for both commercial and residential roofs. There are many advantages to choosing a metal roof in Central Florida, but there are several factors to consider before you make up your mind completely. Our company, XLR8 Roofing & Construction, LLC. can help you to pick out the best type of roof for your specific needs.

Since a metal roof is an energy efficient option, you can enjoy lower cooling ( as well as heating ) costs once you have it installed. And who in Central Florida isn’t concerned about air conditioning cooling efficiency and costs? This type of roof is also a wonderful choice for anyone looking for a unique and beautiful option. It is a completely modern style. It can be fun to pick out a color that will go with the look of your home or business. You can make sure that your property looks amazing whether you are trying to fit in with your neighborhood or stand out. A metal roof is always going to be a stylish option and greatly improves your business or home’s ‘curb appeal’.


Metal is also an extremely safe option for your home. It is strong enough to protect the inside of your property from the outside elements. This type of roof is also exceptionally fire and wind resistant. It is also low maintenance so you can enjoy having this type of roof and not having to worry so long as you make certain that it stays clean from debris.

Things to Think About

Although a metal roof may seem like the best choice, there are some factors to consider. They can prove ‘noisier’ than other types of roofs during a Central Florida thunderstorm. The large panel pieces can at times be more challenging to replace than traditional shingles when damaged. In addition, they will cost more upfront to install. They last for an exceptionally long time though so it is a smart investment. It is important to choose a professional company to install a metal roof so that you know that it is done right. You want to be able to enjoy this type of roof for a long time to come.
