Florida Home Gets Gorgeous Ocean-Blue Roof

DuPont Tedlar Florida Home Project
September 24, 2023 at 9:00 a.m.

By DuPont™ Tedlar®. 

A Florida home in Sailfish Point recently received a stunning makeover with the installation of a blue metal roof that shines like bright ocean waters.  

Contrary to popular belief, it is completely possible to install quality and long-lasting metal roofing on a beachfront property. Total Roofing Systems recently installed a gorgeous metal roof on a property in Florida using quality roofing materials that were made to withstand harsh weather conditions often associated with coastal life. DuPont™ Tedlar® shares how such a feat was possible using their metal roofing film in their project case study.  

Case study 

Sailfish Point, Florida, is a small island near Port St. Lucie and West Palm Beach; it is surrounded by beautiful blue skies and pure saltwater. Homeowners located there were looking to replace their roof that had been installed approximately 20 years ago and asked Total Roofing Systems to help them.  

The previous roof used a stone coated steel panel system. When the stone coat gets worn down with this type of system, the underlying steel gets exposed and begins to rust. Given the harsh saltwater environment, the roof had reached its limit and the homeowners were looking for a longer-term solution. 

After reviewing competitive bids, Total Roofing Systems ultimately advised the homeowners to select Tedlar® laminated on aluminum for a variety of reasons, but primarily because Tedlar® has no coastal restrictions due to its extreme chemical and corrosion resistance. Additionally, they were impressed by the over 60 years of real-world data showing that Tedlar® maintains its initial appearance in the harshest of environments, including coastal settings.  

The decision to go with Tedlar® was a sound one, as the product not only withstands highly corrosive zones, but also is self-cleaning. With the chemical makeup of Tedlar, nothing can really grow on the roofing, nor does it react to materials it comes in contact with. The coating doesn’t require any rinsing or washing maintenance like other metal roofing choices, making it a perfect choice for such an ever-changing environment like coastal Florida. 

The homeowners are very pleased with their decision to use Tedlar® to protect their beautiful home and know that they have made a sound investment that will last for years to come.
