Roofing at The Coast

Roofing at the coast can be tricky. There are numerous advantages to living near the ocean, ranging from breathtaking views to the ability to breathe in the fresh ocean air. Unfortunately, when that same air comes into contact with certain types of metal, it can have disastrous consequences. A metal roof that has been exposed to salt air may succumb to corrosion or rusting, necessitating the need to replace it sooner rather than later.

Metal corrosion is most noticeable on coastal homes that are less than 3,000 feet from the water. Nonetheless, in order to err on the side of caution, we recommend that any homes located within a mile of the coast use only coastal-appropriate metals in order to prevent the possibility of rusting. Roofing at the coast requires the best options.

The potential for metal roofing problems near the ocean extends far beyond corrosion and includes a variety of other issues. Any roofing material used in coastal areas should be resistant to the following elements:

Flooding has caused damage.
Damage caused by the wind
Wind-driven rain is a type of moisture.
Rotting and decaying matter
Damage Caused by Flooding or Water
Damage Caused by the Wind
As a result, it is critical to use materials that are durable enough to withstand the elements of this harsh climate.

Coastal homes have a variety of roofing materials, which we will discuss in this article. We’ll take a look at the four types of metal that are recommended for use on the roofing and siding of your coastal residence. By the end of this article, you’ll have a better understanding of your metal roofing options and will be better prepared to protect your coastal home from corrosion and other elements.
