South Florida is famous for its beautiful beaches, night life and sub-tropical climate. The weather also brings intense summer sun with torrential winds and rain which constantly test our roofs.
Homeowners eventually are confronted with the decision:
Re-roof or Roof Repair?
The re-roof or repair question can depend on many factors.
How old is the roof? The age may be unknown. We do a thorough roof inspection to determine how much useful life it has left.
Are there leaks? Leaks in the flashings of detail areas such as chimneys, skylights, valleys and walls are usually due to workmanship defect and can be repaired. Leaks due to material failure indicate a roof repair is less practical. The time an owner plans to stay in their home and budget also factor into the decision.
If opting for a roof repair you’ll need qualified Miami roofers to do the work. Roofer Mike Inc is a leak detection specialist with expertise developed over decades of experience. Our repairs are designed to outlast the roof.
We back that with a 3-year warranty
Roof Replacement Options
When the choice is made to replace the roof Roofer Mike can guide you through the many roof replacement options available. The most common residential roofing systems available are:
For decades, metal roofs were considered too expensive and were only common in commercial roofing, Coconut Grove and the Keys. In recent years local fabrication shops have been Miami-Dade Approved. This has shortened the supply chain and lowered the cost of galvalume metal roofs to compete favorably with tile roofs. Roofer Mike Inc is in tune with the evolving metal roofing industry in South Florida and offers top quality installations and warranties.
Concrete and clay tile roofs have been a mainstay of the local landscape for 100 years. Tile selection is largely a matter of personal preference but there are performance features to consider. We are up to date on all the technical nuances of tile roof systems.
Underlayment selection is important as it is the waterproofing component of the roof. We recommend modified bitumen, polyester mat reinforced tile underlayment for its superior durability rather than asphalt based fibered materials, which is old technology.
Fiberglass shingles can be much more than just an economical option and are available in many colors, styles and price ranges with warranties ranging from 25 years to “limited lifetime”. We can explain the differences in shingle roof aesthetics and performance to assist in your decision.
Flat roofs are the most challenging roof replacements from a technical standpoint. Compatibility to adjoining systems, insulation options, durability and drainage as well as budget are all variables to consider in flat roof design specifications. We offer both APP/SBS modified bitumen membranes and fiberglass cap sheet Built-Up Roofs (BUR) depending on drainage, ponding conditions and other variables. Both of these systems feature a top layer with a white granulated surface. Some roofers in Miami will sell them as maintenance free. They are not. We recommend a quality roof coating on any low-slope BUR system as soon as possible before expensive roof repairs become necessary for lack of maintenance.
