Metal Roofs

Made from lightweight and durable material, metal roofs are often used in both commercial and residential buildings and can last up to 30 years. Metal roofs are proven to be resistant to fire, wind, and hail, which makes it the common choice for roofing material. For improved functionality, they can be applied with high reflectivity coatings which aid in a more economical energy usage. They can also be recoated easily to change the metal roof color.

Tile Roofs

Tile roofs are a durable and beautiful alternative to traditional roofing materials. It comes in a wide array of design and colors that improve the overall look of the exterior. Tile roofs last longer than most materials, and with proper maintenance, a concrete tile roof can minimize the need for a reroofing. With the highest fire-resistant rating available, tile roofs can be your first choice for a safe, energy-efficient, and cost-effective roofing with better insulating properties.

Flat Roofs

Modern flat roofs use a continuous sheet covering. Sealants and adhesives are often used for bonding multiple sheets. They may also be cut to make room for vents, conditioner stands, and plumbing stacks.

Shingle Roofs

Considered the easiest to install among other roofing materials, shingle roofs are usually made of asphalt and can last for up to 50 years. They come in a variety of colors and styles and can be used on any type of building. However, the weather in Florida is not compatible with a shingle roof, which will probably make you opt for a reroofing service before your roof warranty ends.
