Exterior materials suited for your home need to protect you from natural harsh elements of the tropics. Opt for clay or cement roof tiles since they are thermally conducted and long-lasting and consider longer and wider eaves to shield parts of the house from sun and rain. It also helps if you have a steeper pitch -- a steep roof slope allows rainwater to flow down faster, and creates a larger void between roof surface and ceiling. This way, the air circulates, and cools the home.
