Summer is nearing an end for most of the United States; however, in Boynton Beach, FL, hurricane season is in full swing. Thus far, Florida has gotten lucky with hurricanes; just weeks ago, Hurricane Ida smashed into the coast of Louisiana. As a result, the Boynton Beach Roofing Experts have recently seen a significant increase in homeowners calling to get metal roof replacements, in large part due to the danger of hurricanes, but also due to tile roofing being in such low supply.

Most homes in southern Florida have either an asphalt shingle, tile or metal roof, with most being either shingle or tile, it has been this way for decades. However in recent years metal roofing has gained a lot of popularity with Floridian homeowners. Now in 2021 that trend in metal roofing is only skyrocketing. Due to all the uncertainty in the past year and a half, many people have moved to Florida. A lot of these new Floridians want a better roof than asphalt, often the choice is tile. But right now there are massive shortages for roofing tiles, oftentimes resulting in a homeowner waiting 4+ months for the materials. As a result many homeowners are turning towards metal roofing, as it offers beauty and durability like tile, but is not in a nationwide shortage.

Ricky, a representative of Boynton Beach Roofing Experts, said this, “The bottom line is if hurricanes are a big concern, as they should be for all Floridians, then a metal roofing will offer the most peace of mind. We are seeing many people migrating to Florida from all over the country. Many of these people buying homes are concerned with the roof and whether or not it will hold up to severe hurricanes. I believe this is why there is such a large push for metal roofing; not only is it very attractive to the eye, but it offers maximum protection vs. hurricanes. Now also consider how long it’s been taking for tiles to get manufactured and shipped, homeowners eager for a new roof are really leaning towards metal.”
