What Kind of Roofing Should I Use in Miami?


By





Most people take their roof for granted until their home’s interior sustains damage from leaks. By then the roof deck and structure are typically rotted as it takes time for a leak to saturate the layers of sheathing and insulation before it’s noticed inside the home. Efficient maintenance of the roof extends its life, gives the homeowner full value and protects other components of the structure. Different roof systems require their own periodic maintenance regimens and require an expert local Miami roofing contractor to properly perform the work.

Most leaks occur at roof detail areas due to poor workmanship and can be repaired. When the roof material itself fails the roof is beyond practical repair and replacement options should be explored. A reputable roof professional can help decide if whether to replace the roof.

Fiberglass shingles, concrete and clay tile roofs, metal roofing and various flat roof systems are the most common residential roofing systems available in the Miami roofing market. When contemplating your roof replacement options it can be helpful to check the websites of roofing companies, manufacturers and roof related search engines.

Today, residents are more aware of the benefits of energy efficient roof assemblies which cut cooling costs and extend the life of the roof while featuring ventilated, insulated and reflective characteristics. Rising oil prices have also made efficient systems such as metal roofing and liquid applied roofing (Sealoflex, Hydrostop) more competitively priced with conventional roofs made largely from petroleum byproducts.
One should always get three or four estimates before hiring a roofer. Search online for contractor complaints and reviews and verify licenses at myfloridalicence.com. Obtain and verify liability and workers comp insurance certificates. Study each proposal for accuracy of the work description. Prices for a flat roof, for example, can vary when different systems are used. Compare the warranties of each contractor along with price and terms. Insist the contractor pulls a permit and don't ever give the contractor the last progress payment until the roof passes inspection.
