Roofing For New Custom Homes

Your new custom home really starts to come together when the roofing is installed. At RGS Custom Homes, you can choose from several different types of roofing systems, styles and colors that will make your custom home uniquely yours.

While local building codes determine the minimum requirements for installing roofing systems, RGS Custom Homes goes above and beyond statutory requirements offering homeowners the option to choose a more durable and longer lasting roof for your custom home. We will help you understand the benefits of each type of roofing to help you decide the one that best matches your design and budget.

Custom Architectural Shingle

Architectural shingle roofs are a premium quality roof that not only offers an aesthetically pleasing appearance, but is superior in performance to standard 3-tab asphalt shingle roofs that are commonplace in many tract homes today. Also, architectural shingle roofs generally have a longer lifespan compared to a standard asphalt shingle roof. They are available in a wide array of colors, patterns and textures that will enhance the beauty of any custom home.

Custom Tile Roofs

Concrete tile roofs are a premium roof that offers instant curb appeal. Concrete tile looks a lot like clay tile and offers much of the same benefits but at a lower cost. One of its big advantages is its ability to withstand hurricane force winds up to 180 mph. And if the underlayment, batten system and flashing are properly installed, this type of roof can last  40-50 years before requiring replacement. It is available in several prominent colors and textures to match your exterior design expectations.

Custom Metal Roofs

Metal roofing is becoming a very popular choice for homeowners. Not only do metal roofs offer a sleek modern appearance, but they are extremely durable. Able to withstand high winds and heavy rain, metal roofing is a great option for Floridians looking for a little extra peace of mind during hurricane seasons. Depending on the metal you choose, your metal roof has the potential to last and average of 40-70 years.

In addition, metal roofs require minimal maintenance, which can potentially save time and money on repairs and upkeep. Moreover, metal roofs are highly energy efficient compared to other more traditional roofing materials.  These roofs are often enhanced with specialized coatings to further extend their lifespan and enhance efficiency. For instance, a variety of durable roof coatings are available, designed to reflect heat, prevent rust, and safeguard against leaks, ensuring both longevity and performance.

Lastly, metal roofs come in a variety of styles and colors allowing homeowners to further customize the unique look of their custom home.

Installing Your Custom Roofing

The “valleys” of your roof is where the water accumulates most of the runoff when it rains. Building codes require roofers to install a Base Flashing of either corrosion-resistant metal as provided in Section R905.2.8.1 or mineral surface roll roofing weighing a minimum of 77 pounds per 100 square feet. Although not required - WE DO BOTH as an added measure of protection.
