Choosing When to Replace or Repair Your Roof

The greatest line of defense your home or business has is the roof and although it’s easy to overlook the care your roof might require the reality is, it should not be taken so lightly. Your roof is the barrier that holds up against constant sun and harsh winds and weather that with time will eventually need to be repaired. The problem that most consumers have though is trying to figure out just when to replace the roof or simply start a Roof Repair process. Several factors need to be taken into consideration for your final decision, for instance has your roof been recently installed or replaced? How long ago was the roof replaced? Does your roof currently have shingles? An average life span of 8 to 10 years means you don’t need to replace your roof just yet so Roof Repair might be your best choice. If the roof has shingles installed and it has been there for about 12 years then it might be a good idea to look into a replacement.

Roof Repair is normally the better option but if your roof is totaled it might be better to look into a replacement.

Another important fact to keep in mind is the current condition of the roof. Is the roof damaged heavily or is it minimal damage? Sometimes you might not even need as much Roof Repair work to be done as you though which of course will save you money. However, if your roof is in terrible shape then it’s better to just invest in a new one for the safety of you and your loved ones. If you are considering selling the home and want to replace it before selling it than the metal roof option might be ideal for you. A properly installed metal roof should last about 50 years and can help your sell your home at a better value than the value it currently holds assuming the roof is trashed.

My Florida roofing is an amazing company to deal with. The recently redid our roof from shingles to standing seem metal roof. It looks amazing. I got roughly about 10 quotes from the top roofers in Indian river county and they help educate me and showed me different options of material's for the new roof. Their team came in and stripped reroof the entire home in about week to do great weather. They strip and relapse before any rain could hit the exposed material. Rene and Maxine are such a pleasure to deal with. The are very upfront about everything and every detail that you speak with Rene about is backed up with written documentation so you know and see exactly what you are paying for. They also show and explain the different options to add on if you choose to. They are very quick to respond and answer any questions you may have in a timely matter. No doubt in my mind did I make the right decision going with My Florida Roofing. I recommend and would you use them again for any future projects. Again thank you Rene, Maxine and all of the team at My Florida Roofing for making a new roof process so quick and painless

The Reyes' were very friendly, accommodating and professional. Rene visited the site often to check on the work. The crew was professional friendly and efficient. We had our roof replaced, asphalt shingles to metal, almost a year ago now and still marvel at the look. The color matches perfectly with the house trim. I highly recommend MyFloridaRoofing.
