What type of roof is best for Miami weather?

Thumbtack Editors

Clay tile is one of the most popular roof types in Miami. This tile is resistant to moisture, pests and fire, and it can withstand the extreme heat and direct sunlight of South Florida’s climate. 

Metal, concrete tiles, slate and terracotta tiles are also sound options for your roof. A metal roof reflects sunlight and can help keep your home cool. They are also essentially maintenance-free and last for 50 years or more. Concrete roof tiles are another good choice — they can withstand extreme heat and resist mold, insects and rot.
