Roof Types for your Custom Home

Choosing the right roof for your custom home can be overwhelming but with Leland Custom Homes, you can rest assured the process of building your custom home will be as easy as possible. Leland Custom Homes will work closely with you through the entire home-building process, from breaking ground to choosing doorknob styles.

2 of the Most Common Roof Types:
Shingle
: Asphalt shingle roofs have an average lifespan of 20 years, depending on the climate and weather. These shingles are made of fiberglass between asphalt and ceramic. Shingle roofs come in a multitude of colors, including blue, green, red and your traditional brown, black or gray.

Metal: The lifespan and durability of metal roofs make this type most appealing to homeowners. The lifespan of these roofs are typically 3-7 times longer than your traditional shingle roofs. Additionally, you can increase the value of your home 1-6%. Metal roofs can withstand wind speeds up to 140mph, making it a solid choice for your Florida beach home.

Other roofing options include slate, concrete tiles (usually used on California homes where it is warm and dry) and flat roofs (commercial properties).

Which Roof is Best for Your Custom Home?

When building your custom home, one of the major decisions in the process is, “Which roof would you like?” The decision may be overwhelming, but that is why Leland Custom Homes is here to help you make the decision easier!

Types of Roofing

Which roofing materials are the most common?

Asphalt: The average lifespan is 5-10 years; it could be used for sheds and exterior buildings, however you should not consider it for your home’s roof. In order to extend it’s lifespan, keep it clear of debris (leaves, tee branches, etc.)
Composite Shingle: This is the most common roofing material; the average lifespan is 15-50 years. Extend this roofing material’s lifespan by clearing debris, including moss as soon as it begins to grow. Whether you’re looking for a light gray shingle, brown, red or blue, the options are endless with composite shingles.
Metal Roof: You may notice metal roofing is growing in popularity over the years. This roofing material is study and has a lifespan of 3-50 years. To extend a metal roof’s lifespan, it is important to check your roof for distressed, bent or panels that have moved over time. The color and style choices vary, from white to copper.
Clay Roof: Although clay roofing is most common in California, Spain and South America, terracotta tiles add a touch of the Mediterranean to your home. Avoid walking on these tiles as they can easily crack; replace cracked tiles as these issues arise. The average lifespan of a clay tile roof is about 100 years, if properly cared for.

If you need help deciding your roofing material for your custom home, do not hesitate to give Leland Custom Homes a call. We specialize in making our customer’s dreams come true with their custom homes. We service Pensacola, Navarre, Gulf Breeze and beyond. There’s no project that is too large or too small.

How to Choose a Custom Home Builder

Choosing a custom home builder can sometimes be an overwhelming task. How do you know they’re perfect for you? Will they make what should be an exciting process as stress-free as possible? These are only a couple of many questions you’re likely asking yourself. Fortunately, there are a few key elements to choosing your custom home builder to make your decision easier.

Finding Your Home Builder

Know your budget. Having a budget is going to help with choosing materials, interior and exterior. It is important that both parties, yourself and your custom home builder, are aware of this budget from the very beginning so should situations arise, they can be taken care of easily.
Choose your wants, must haves. Much like buying a home, it is important for you to know exactly what you’re looking for in a new home. Size, number of bathrooms, bedrooms, etc. Maybe you’re looking for something specific, a home office, two eating areas. Keep in mind finishing for floors, cabinets and counter tops. When building a custom home, the options are endless!
Ask for references. Speak to previous customers of your chosen custom home builder. Were they satisfied with their experience? Did the home come within the budget? Was the project completed on-time? Don’t be afraid to ask these questions, and your custom home builder shouldn’t have any concerns with you asking questions.
Verify the builder’s license. Avoid running into issues down the road. Verify your home builder is licensed and insured by using MyFloridaLicense.com.

Get Hot Water Quickly Using Tankless Water Heaters

Tankless water heaters, or on-demand water heaters, heat water without a storage tank. Tankless water heaters give you hot water more quickly than any other water heater. Water is heated as it runs through a heat exchanger (gas or electric) and is as much as 34 percent more efficient than your typical model with a storage tank, depending on the amount of water your family uses. Tankless water heaters deliver a constant supply of hot water without waiting for a tank to fill. If you want to save money and energy, this may be the right choice for you. Leland Custom Homes has experience installing tankless water heaters, and we’ll be happy to discuss the topic with you as we’re planning your home.

Insulate for Energy Efficiency

You can reduce your heating and cooling costs by using Icynene spray foam insulation. It will also add value to your home. Icynene is sprayed into the walls during the construction phase, but it can also be retrofitted during home renovation. Icynene forms a vapor barrier to stop convection heat loss, making your home warmer in winter and cooler in summer. Because the product is sprayed in foam, it reaches into cracks and crevices where insulation is typically difficult to place. Icynene won’t ever settle like fiberglass insulation, and it’s difficult for vermin to chew their way through it. Another feature is the product’s formulation that is chemical-free and environmentally friendly. Leland Custom Homes will gladly use Icynene spray foam insulation to give you an energy efficient home.
