What kind of roofing should I put on my house

We justlost our roof here due to the hurricane. I put a torch down roof on 2.5 years ago due to the low pitch 1.12? Now that it has "blown off" I am wondering what is the best replacement option for me. Again, it is a very low pitch (florida house ..1.12 is how one of my friends defined it) I know I don't have alot of options.....but should I go with the torch down again.......hot mop.....or COULD I do metal on there? I would appreciate any advice that any of you could provide. My thanks in advance!

There are mechanically seamed metal roofs which are used on low pitches like this and work very well. You would need to contact an experienced metal roofing contractor or commercial roofing contractor.

thanks alot Todd....appreciate the reply alot......can you tell me what a PBR metal roof is? I had a contractor come today that said he could do a PBR low slope metal roof (stainless steel finish no color) on our roof.....said he has done a "few" before and would have no problem doing ours......offers a 5 yr leak proof guarantee...which is less than the 15 yr most offer....anyways....checked on the net....not sure what PBR stands for.....thanks again for your help!

I am not sure what PBR stands for but it refers to an R Panel roof that is designed for very low slope application. It is, however, an exposed fastener product. You can also do low pitches with a mechanically seamed standing seam and yet have all concealed fasteners. Leakproof warranties only last as long as the companies that issue them.
