Thinking it’s time to replace that old roof on your house? Residential roofs typically last about 15 years on average. When it’s time to replace your roof, you have several options to think about.
- Architectural shingles or 3-tab shingles? Dimensional roofing shingles are a beefier shingle and have a much longer life span than a 3-tab which are typically used in production homes to keep the cost down.
- Shingle Color? Choosing a shingle color can be a real pain. Luckily, GAF has their virtual remodeler to help you. It’s a great tool and we recommend using it. See link below!
- Warranty? Like many other types of warranties, roofing warranties vary from one manufacturer to the next. GAF, CertainTeed and Tamko offer some of the best warranty coverage in the roofing industry. Check them out and read the warranty. You want a warranty that covers both materials AND labor which protects you in the case the roofer goes out of business.
Flat roofs, EPDM roofs, TPO roofs and special roof coatings are all common types of commercial roofing systems. They require ongoing maintenance and care in order to get the best ROI on them. Most roofers will specialize in a few of these systems.
In areas like Orlando Florida, the lifespan of your roof can be drastically reduced due to the amount of rain and storms we experience. Wind and hail can damage your roof by prematurely removing the protective granules, exposing the fiberglass mat underneath and eventually causing a roof leak. Once water comes into the home or building, it can damage drywall, rot wood and grow mold. This leads to costly repairs. It is recommended that you get annual roofing inspections done to mitigate any problems before they arise.
Roof tiles come in various profiles and colors. Spanish clay or terracotta offer an Old World look with vibrant colors. Concrete roof tiles tend to be a bit more durable and are more dense in weight so you should check to make sure your roof framing is designed by an engineer to handle the load. Synthetic roof tiles are becoming more popular due to their light weight and durability. Solar roof tiles are a great way to conserve energy, but have an added cost for this benefit.
Metal roofs are typically made of galvanized steel with a special coating that makes them one of the most durable roofing systems available. Some of these roofs qualify for an energy tax credit which helps offset the cost to have them installed.
