Best Roofing Material for Salty Air and Strong Winds

We're Midwesterners and will be renovating a home we bought in Atlantic City, New Jersey. What is the best roofing material for withstanding a combination of salty air and strong winds?

Luke, although there are several types of roofing that would be adequate for your ocean side home, I would recommend that you consider a steel roof. Not only are metal roofs durable and resistant to corrosion, they can also look great on a variety of different homes. When choosing a metal roof, you can select one with a corrugated profile or a standing seam panel, which is often considered a cleaner, more contemporary aesthetic. Most steel roofs are available in dozens of colors and finishes, so you should have no trouble finding a brand and style that complement the architectural style of your home.

Before you begin your home renovation, you should review any building covenants or zoning regulations that may affect which type of roofing you can install on your house. You should also consult a roofing contractor in the Atlantic City area so that you can get an accurate cost estimate for the project. Once a qualified contractor has inspected the details of your home's roof system, them you will have a better idea of what the total cost of your new roof might be.
