If you’re in the market for a new roof and live at waterfront property, it’s important to consider some of the unique factors that play into your roof’s longevity before you make the move. Here are some of the things to consider about roofing jobs for these properties.

First, the property, because of its location and access to the waterfront, likely has a high value. You should keep this in mind when it comes to getting a roof. Not just any type of roof from any installer will do. You want to ensure you hire an experienced company that will come out to you knowing fully how to install the best roof on your home.

Understanding Materials

Start by speaking with your contractor about the material your shingles will be made of. You’ll need one that will withstand wind, that works well on coastal roofs and that is rated stable for the conditions that happen nearby shoreline homes. Options from clay tile roofs, wood shingles, or copper and steel are all recommended for homes that are on the beach or along the coast.

In addition to the availability of materials, your roof will need to go along with the style of home you have and roof pitch also plays a role. With so many moving parts it’s important that you trust the roofing company you choose to get the job done.

Regular Maintenance Schedules

One of the best defenses to keep your coastal home’s roof in good condition for the long haul is to have it regularly maintained and its integrity checked. Saltwater in the air and exposure to direct sunlight can do a number of different roof types. You may even need to have algaecide treatments done.
