The rainy season is in full swing here in South Florida. Davie is in it’s 2nd rainiest month of the year, September, with an average monthly rainfall of close to 8 inches over an average of 12.2 days. It rains even more in nearby Oakland Park – with 8.2 inches. This year, with a predicted very active hurricane season, the Davie and Fort Lauderdale area can expect even more rainfall. That leads to the question of – what types of roofs are best for our rainy and stormy climates?

The best materials for rainy areas like Fort Lauderdale and Oakland Park have proven to be Asphalt Shingles, Metal, Wood Shingles, Slate and Clay.

Pitched or Gable roofs are the most recommended roof styles, with Hip design having a more stable design that holds up well in storms and during high winds.

Other styles that hold up well during high winds and rains are Mansard, Flat or Bottom Line.
