Advantages of Metal Roofs in the PSL Area

When it comes to choosing the material for replacing or upgrading a roof, there are a lot of options. In the PSL area, the most common roofing materials are tiles and asphalt shingles. However, there is another option that is becoming more popular for roofs in PSL: metal roofing. Metal roofs might not immediately come to mind, especially considering the aesthetic of PSL architecture, but there are many advantages to using this roofing material.


Our team at Ridgecap Roofing has installed and worked on many metal roofs in the PSL area. Here are some of the advantages of this roofing material.


Durable and Weather Resistant

We get some pretty extreme weather in Florida, so you want to know that your roof will hold up. Metal roofs have one of the longest lifespans of any roofing material and can withstand high winds, heavy rain, and intense sunlight. That pretty much covers all the extreme conditions we experience in Florida, making metal an excellent choice for your roof. Metal also resists mold, rot, and insect infestations, further protecting your home from these problems.


Energy Efficient

Florida is famous for its hot weather, so you’ll want to do anything you can to decrease cooling costs. Your home heats up when it’s sunny outside because the exterior of your home absorbs the sunlight, increasing the temperature inside. Then your A/C system has to work harder to catch up, which increases your cooling costs. Metal is a reflective material, so much of the light and heat from the sun’s rays bounces off it, keeping the roof—and therefore your home—cooler.



When replacing a roof with a different material, the weight is very important. The structure of the building is designed to bear a roof of a certain weight, and anything heavier can lead to structural problems. Luckily, metal roofs are generally lightweight, making them simple to install without needing to make any changes to the existing structure.
