Many people are unaware if their shingle roofs need to be repaired or replaced; as a result, The Fort Lauderdale Roofing Pros are offering free estimates and proposals for any south Florida homeowner in serious need of roofing help.
There are a few key factors roofers evaluate to determine if the roof can be fixed via a repair or if it needs a replacement; these factors are the quality of materials used, the quality of the installation, the roof’s weather history, and the actual age of the roof. Poor materials, craftsmanship, numerous hurricanes, and natural age all on their own can necessitate a roof replacement, yet a few more combined can almost guarantee it.
If it is determined that a shingle roof replacement is needed, the following steps will be to figure out which roofing material to use. Many Fort Lauderdale roofing companies recommend using architectural shingles (aka laminate or dimensional shingles), for these are durable vs. hurricanes and can last for over 20 years. Often homeowners will inquire about 3-tab shingles due to the low cost; however, it is not advised to use 3-tabs in an area prone to hurricanes as they can’t handle winds more than 70mph.
Jonathan, an associate with The Fort Lauderdale Roofing Pros, had this to say about shingle roofing, “Right now, shingle roofing in Fort Lauderdale is picking up quite a bit. While tile is often a popular choice, with the tile shortages still ongoing and costs for tile increasing, many homeowners are instead choosing shingles. We always recommend architectural shingles or even luxury shingles; the durability is needed for the weather down here in South Florida.”
