I will take a stab at it. I don't think it has as much to do with roofing material as it has to do with the ventilation through the roof and walls. Pat has a page dedicated to the subject. The material I used was asphalt shingles with vents and also corrugated roofing. Most roofing will last a long time and but no roofing that I know of provides specific benefits in a warmer climate but you can ventilate any roofing material to suit your specific needs.
