Hippo Roofing is making sure your roof is always ready for visitors, providing the highest quality materials and workmanship in the business.

Your roof is often the least-thought-of but most important part of your home. A healthy roof protects your investment in your home, increases its value, guards against costly hidden damage and saves money on heating and cooling. A permanent, energy-efficient roofing solution is an investment that pays for itself over and over again. Melbourne’s Hippo Roofing has taken this to heart and is offering lifetime roofing solutions to Space Coast residents.
“We know consumers have many choices when it comes to choosing a roofing company, so we’ve differentiated ourselves by choosing to use only the best roofing materials available,” said Brian Stillwell, sales manager. “Our roofs are installed by professionals who know and love their craft. Our goal is to provide our clients peace of mind.”
A multi-generational, family-owned roofing company with a long history of providing quality work and exceptional customer service, Hippo Roofing also offers free maintenance and inspections, various financing options and a transferable lifetime warranty on workmanship and materials. Stillwell stands by his product and is confident that barring a natural disaster, a new Hippo roof will be the last roof you will have to buy for your home.
“We take pride in the fact we’re a different kind of roofing company,” he added. “We not only provide a quality roof, but we also work hard to establish ongoing relationships with customers so we can give them peace of mind.”
The company specializes in two types of roofs. If you are looking for a roof to protect your home and improve its energy efficiency, Hippo’s DefenderRoof is the way to go. Metal roofing is the best way to ensure your home is protected when the extreme Florida heat, strong hurricane winds and reindeer hooves come to bear. Energy Star-rated, DefenderRoof is a paneled metal roofing system with a natural metal finish that can be upgraded to 10 different colors. It can also be manufactured in aluminum for oceanfront installation in order to prevent corrosion or rust from salt water. The slogan “Metal Roof Same Price as Shingles” was trademarked by Hippo Roofing based on this product’s great affordability.
“Over the last 10 years, there has been a trend towards metal roofs because they pretty much last forever,” explained Stillwell. “The Space Coast isn’t easy on roofs, with the heat, heavy rain and winds, and salt water, so more and more people are realizing a metal roof is a great investment. It’s basically a one-time purchase.”
For those who want a permanent roof solution but cannot afford metal, ShieldRoof is a durable and dependable asphalt shingle roof that comes with a 50-year, non-prorated, lifetime labor and material guarantee from the manufacturer.
“Whether you go with the metal or asphalt option, the quality is top-notch,” asserted Stillwell. “We came up with these specific solutions by looking at the weak spots in roofs and getting rid of the kinks.
