Florida Roofing Materials

Selecting the Right Roofing Materials

The material you select for your roof is a matter of personal choice, but environmental and comfort factors play a role in determining the best roofing materials for a home. The style of your home and the shape of your roofline may dictate the materials that might work best, and weather conditions are an important consideration for long-term durability.

The roofing materials and roofing products are selected based on aesthetic appeal and lasting value. We have a wide variety of roofing products and types, available in many colors and styles, to fit your budget.

Our crews are certified to install the following roofing systems:

Composition Shingle Roofing Systems

Composition shingles are the most common and economical roofing option for most sloped roofs. PetersenDean has installed more than 100,000 composition roofs since 1984 because of their popularity with home owners, home builders, and developers. Composition roofing is manufactured in a range of styles and colors to accentuate any home or multi-family property. Customer manufactured accessories such as enhanced ridge or attic ventilators provide further enhancement or energy savings. PetersenDean is certified by all major manufactures of conventional roofing systems being used today by architects, engineers, and building owners.

Tile Roofing Systems

Tile Roofing, one of the fastest-growing segments of the roofing industry, offers true aesthetic value and is one of the few products available to the business community that offers timeless beauty and old-world charm.  PetersenDean’s tile division offers a wide array of colors, styles, and manufacturers of the finest tile products available. We also offer one of the longest and most respected warranties in the industry.  Tile roofing materials carries UL 2218 Class 3 and 4 ratings, qualifying for discounts from insurance carriers.

Low-Slope/Flat Roofing Systems

Low-slope roofing systems are the most challenging to install, demanding an uncommon level of skill to ensure longevity, integrity, and low maintenance. PetersenDean offers manufacturers’ warranties for up to 30 years. Low slope roofing materials include organic and fiberglass rolled roofing products used in Built-Up Roofing (BUR) applications, modified bitumen rolled roofing used in BUR, single-ply rolled products such as PVC and TPO, fluid-applied products, asphalt, specialty adhesives, and other products. Problem flat roofs can be made sloped to drain. PetersenDean offers non-destructive (infrared) moisture surveys and installs energy-efficient roof systems.

Metal Roofing Systems

Architectural metal roof panels are considered by many professionals to provide the best and longest-lasting protection against roof leaks. Metal panel roofing is lightweight and comes in many different designs, shapes, and colors to achieve nearly any architectural effect. Standing seam metal roofing is a popular choice of architects, designers, and long-term property investors because of its beauty, reliable design, low maintenance, and superior durability. Metal Roofing systems have the highest wind ratings and qualify for UL 2218 Impact Resistance ratings.  A durable and energy-efficient roofing option, metal roofs have high heat reflectivity rating and are recyclable.

Solar Roofing Systems

The occasion of installing a new roof is the perfect time to consider solar electricity and have a solar savings analysis done for your home. Energy prices continue to rise while solar equipment costs steadily decrease, so installing home solar power is more affordable today and is a cheaper energy alternative for many homeowners in Florida. Talk to PetersenDean about a home solar power for a free solar assessment. Our representative will be able to look at your electricity costs and show you the impact of home solar power on your monthly electricity costs. If a roofing and solar installation project makes sense, working with PetersenDean on an integrated roofing and solar job reduces the overall installation costs, saves your roof warranty and eliminates the need to select multiple contractors.
