In Response To: the right shingle (Alan Wegner)

At a 3 1/2 pitch and living in hurricane country you should be seriously looking at flat roof varieties of roofing rather than composite shingles.

Shingle manufacturers do not recommend installing shingles on much less than a 3 pitch. It is my opinion you are asking for trouble if you use them.

Since I'm up north and not that familiar with Fla. I would recommend you get additional advice for other types of optional roofing such as metal, tile, single ply, etc before making a decision. Putting dimensional shingles on anything below a 4 pitch is very iffy.
