Central Florida offers so many wonderful year-round options for residents, including Disney World, Animal Kingdom, Universal Studios Florida, SeaWorld, Lego Land, Zoos, Aquariums, and NASA. Not to mention our beautiful coastline, and natural wonders of beauty!
The Orlando-area and surrounding communities, however, must deal with many different types of weather patterns such as, rain, hurricanes, flash flooding, and hail. These conditions are often difficult for homeowners who must choose durable materials for their homes to avoid property damage. The implementation of proactive strategies to protect one’s residence are absolutely essential as well and reliable contractors should always be on hand. We definitely know Mother nature does not give concern to the type of home she choses to damage, however, some types of materials tend to be more appropriate than others. This is the case especially when roofing is concerned.
A Roof is Not Just a Roof
The roof over your home protects your family, the physical structure of your home, your personal property, valuables, electronics and appliances and the design of roof varies widely. Smaller houses require different layouts than larger homes. A large, luxury home covers a huge expanse and so must be properly designed from an architectural standpoint. Materials used must fit with the color scheme of the home and landscaping and at the same time be durable enough to withstand the Florida rain patterns, storms, and heat.
The following is a list of roofing material options for your luxury home in Central Florida. Should you have any questions, please contact Modish Homes for a free consultation about the construction of your luxury home or just the roof itself. We are based out of Winter Park, Florida.

Metal Roofing Shingles
Metal roofing shingles provide durability and style. They look like regular tiles, but provide the strength of metal. Most brands are guaranteed to resist winds of up to 120 miles per hour and have a high impact resistance rating. They are perfect for Central Florida’s hail and strong thunderstorms, they are also fire resistant. Metal roofing is also great for our hot summers and reduce cooling costs by 20% compared to asphalt shingles.
Clay Tile Roof
The ever-popular clay tile repels high moisture, extreme weather, fire and insect activity. With a life expectancy of over a century, they are wonderful as a green, energy-efficient building material.
Similar to clay tile, slate is moisture, insect, fire and inclement weather-proof. The energy-efficient, slate outshines clay in terms of its ability to endure, lasting up to 150 years. highly energy-efficient material. Both are somewhat heavy and may require additional weight-bearing architectural planning.
Concrete Tile Roof
A somewhat newcomer in the roofing materials game, concrete tile roof can be made to look like wood shakes, slate, clay and other high-end materials. It is very versatile and cost-effective.
