Your roof may be the most important element in your house.

aging shingle roofIs your roof functional or cosmetic? Yes!

Depending on the style of your house, the roof can represent from one-third to one-half the surface area seen from the street. It’s a major component of your curb appeal. If it is aging, stained and dull in color, your house will look tired and unmaintained. A new roof represents both a safer house, as we enter hurricane season, and a whole new look with regard to style and color.

Roof Age

Asphalt shingle roofs are the most popular in Tampa Bay. Beautiful, economical and durable for the first 15 years,  most shingles rated for a 20+ year useful life don’t last that long in Florida’s sun. Insurance companies now require shingle roofs to be under 20 years to pass a 4-point inspection. Tile, concrete and metal roofs offer longer life spans, so insurance companies extend their guidelines accordingly. If your shingle roof is over 15 years and you are thinking of selling, consider getting it inspected or replaced prior to selling. We offer free estimates at 813.884.1815.

Losing granules and staining can point to a potential leak. Check your fascia and soffits for soft wood or cracking. Rotted wood will be replaced with fresh plywood with a roof replacement. Both the roofing system and the soffit should be free of rot. Fresh flashing around vents and chimney openings can be both aesthetic and functional. Our teams scour the house for any potential openings or soft spots to be repaired. As a roofer in the top 2% of roofers nationwide, our customer service satisfaction outcomes are our best qualifications for your new roof installation.

Colors and Shapes

white shingle roofThe 2021 trend is to contrast the sides of your house with the roof, so if you have a light-colored stucco, paint or brick, consider a dark roof for contrast. We stock shingles in color combinations and shapes to meet any style.  Light or white roofs give a tropical feeling to a house, and they help to reflect sunlight. We have shingles the color of terra cotta as well as metal roofing that looks like barrel tile. There are shingles shaped and colored like slate or wood shake, so the possibilities are endless. Our skilled team will help you pick the shingles, metal roofing or flat roof to match your house, your personality and your budget.
