I live in Fort Lauderdale, and I am concerned about my proximity to the salt water if I put a metal roof on. I am roughly 1.5 miles from the beach, but I live one street north of Tarpon River, and roughly a mile from the intracostal. Would being that close cause a problem? I posted a google map of where I live to show the water.

I believe that most manufacturers of steel roofing would not advise use of their product for an application such as this. You may wish to look into aluminum or even copper as options instead. Like steel, these materials are available as vertical seam roofs and also in metal shingle form.

+1 Be safe and go with Aluminum in this case. There is so much salt in the air in places like coastal FL that it just doesn't make sense.
