Should I Choose Asphalt Shingles or a Metal Roof in Myrtle Beach’s Heat?

There are pros and cons to choosing asphalt shingles and metal roofing materials. However, if you are solely concerned with navigating the hotter climate, a metal roofing system may be the appropriate choice.

Asphalt shingles are known to absorb a considerable amount of heat, contributing to a hotter attic and ultimately raising your cooling costs. Metal roofs, on the other hand, reflect a significant amount of solar radiation, reducing heat absorption in the attic. This translates to lower cooling bills and improved energy efficiency for your home.

Does Salty Air Damage Roof Shingles Faster?

Yes. While living by the beach and ocean can be a dream, the saltwater and moisture in the air can impact your roof. The specific effects include:

  • Corrosion. Salt spray and air can corrode metal components, loosen shingles, and shorten the lifespan of your roof.
  • Risk of mold and mildew. Constant moisture promotes mold and mildew growth, which can deteriorate your roof's underlayment and lead to leaks. It is also important to note that if you live near the beach, sand can get blown on your roof and later trap moisture on the roof when it rains.
  • Risk of algae and lichen. Salt and moisture can also lead to the growth of organisms like lichen and algae, which are known to retain moisture.
  • Erosion and pitting. If you have a roof with a softer material like asphalt, wind and sand can lead to the pitting of your roof, which can require you to have more frequent repairs.
  • Wind damage. Coastal areas are prone to high winds, which can lift and tear shingles off the roof.

How to Prepare Your Roof for Hurricane Season

Myrtle Beach residents have experienced many hurricanes throughout the years, and hurricane season lasts from early June through late November. In preparation for hurricane season, you should take the following steps to protect your property’s roof:

  • Make sure to inspect your roof. Before hurricane season begins, have a professional roofing contractor inspect your roof for missing, loose, or damaged shingles or tiles. Early detection of vulnerabilities can prevent major problems during a storm.
  • Clear your gutters and downspouts. Take time to make sure your gutters and downspouts are debris-free to prevent water backup. During heavy rains, clogged gutters can cause water to pool and damage your roof and home’s foundation.
  • Trim the trees near your home. Cut back any branches hanging over your roof. High winds can break branches, causing them to fall on your roof and potentially cause significant damage.
  • Secure any loose materials. If your roof inspection reveals loose materials, have them secured or replaced immediately. In high winds, these materials can tear away and expose your home to water damage.
  • Check for proper ventilation. Proper ventilation in your attic reduces moisture buildup, which is a threat to your roof structure. Additionally, the right balance of airflow can help counteract uplift pressures during a hurricane.
  • Determine whether your roof has hurricane straps. These metal fasteners strengthen the connection between your roof and the rest of your home, providing extra resistance against strong winds. Professional roofers can inspect your roof to determine if you have straps or clips, and if you do not, they can discuss whether it is possible to add them to your home.
