Roof Repair or Replace?
We can be of help in deciding between a roof repair or reroof. Leaks at detail areas are usually workmanship issues and can be repaired. Improper installation of metal flashing is almost always the culprit but when the roof membrane itself begins to fail in open areas it’s an indication that a roof repair is no longer practical.
An owner’s individual circumstances also come into play. How long they expect to stay in their home can influence the process. A seller tends to take a different approach than someone staying in their home for the foreseeable future. When considering roof replacement options it’s a good idea to browse the websites of manufacturers and roofing contractors. Consider life cycle and warranty as much as aesthetics and pricing. Keep in mind that the best time to consider a skylight installation or solar panels is when replacing the roof.
Metal Roofs Rock Miami!
For decades metal roofs in Miami were not in the budget for most area residents. South Florida was dominated by tile roofs, which was a considerably cheaper option . However, the recent elimination of a link in the supply chain greatly reduced prices. When factoring in expected life cycles, metal is very competitive with tile for value.
Developed by Bethlehem Steel, Galvalume® is sheet steel coated with 45% zinc and 55% aluminum . Galvalume® standing-seam metal roofs are strong yet lightweight, energy efficient, fireproof, 100% recyclable and the most wind resistant system available in the South Florida market .
Tile roofs are the foundation of roofing in Miami and dominate the skyline for good reason. In addition to their attractiveness, tile offers a strong, durable, wind-resistant, fire-rated option for homeowners at a comparatively good value. South Florida , where every style available is represented, serves as an ideal brochure for browsing tile roofs.
Most South Florida homes are designed for wind resistance with a low slope. This also allows water to filter through to the underlayment. In terms of performance the underlayment is the most important choice to be made when designing a tile roof system. It is the primary waterproofing component.
For many decades the 30-90 hot-mop system was the predominant tile roof underlayment. Miami roofers, including this one, wanted a more durable system. Along came today’s self-adhered, synthetic underlayment. After over ten years on the market it has developed into the superior alternative to an old technology.
Shingle roofs dominate the United States but in South Florida, not so much. They’re not ideally suited for our subtropical climate BUT when incorporated into a system featuring well-designed attic ventilation they become a real option. In terms of value, they can compare favorably with the more expensive systems.
The most technically challenging replacements are flat roofs. The aforementioned systems are rather straightforward, in comparison, with the execution of client preferences according to manufacturer’s specs and the Code. With flat, or low-slope, roofs we get into the wonderful world of design. Compatibility to connected systems, insulation configurations, drainage and durability are all considered in design specifications. There are dozens of low-slope systems available but this market has generally settled on two types of BUR (Built-up Roof) – fiberglass and modified bitumen with commercial roofing single-ply TPO becoming increasingly popular.
