The Best Roofing Materials for your Climate

Did you know that the best roofing material for you can actually vary based on your climate? Weather conditions, local building codes, energy efficiency, and even durability should all be taken into consideration when deciding what materials to use. C3 American Exteriors started out in Pennsylvania, but has since grown to five different states. Some of the areas we serve are located on the beach while others are prone to colder temperatures depending on the season. Whether in Pennsylvania or an entirely different climate, there are specific factors to take into consideration when deciding what materials are best for your roof. Let’s take a look at some popular roofing materials and which climates they do best in:

Metal roofs: While metal roofs can be great for just about any area, they do great in heavy weather and intense storms. They are even a great option for very hot temperatures.

Slate roofs: These roofs are very durable and can last a long time, holding up nicely in intense weather. If you live in an area with extreme heat, cold, or storms, you might consider a slate roof.

Asphalt shingles: Asphalt roofs are very affordable and popular for this reason. They are great for the majority of weather types, but we recommend them for moderate climates. They have a great lifespan and they look beautiful.

Synthetic cedar roof: This material is great for most climates and looks like real wood while being more durable.

No matter what area you live in, whether Pennsylvania or any other climate, we would love to help you design the roof of your dreams.
