Shingle Roof

Replace Roof Shingles

You may need to replace roof shingles if they have been damaged in a storm, warped or bubbled from age or improperly installed in the first place. Fortunately, asphalt shingles are easy and economical to fix. Whether you need to replace a few or recover an entire surface, count on the experience and skill of Central Florida’s top roof company to do it right.

Your roof is the first line of defense against the elements. It is designed to keep out rainwater. Leaks can cause many types of problems: 
  • They can destroy your roof’s materials, deck and framing – rotting the wood until it creates a dangerous structural problem.
  • They can travel horizontally, far from the source, until the moisture rots the drywall, plaster and other building materials inside your home.
  • Water attracts termites. These critters eat away at your wood frames, especially if the water seeps down to your floor joists. You might not know you even have a problem until it’s too late.
  • Moisture is a breeding ground for mold and mildew. Once fungus gets into your house, it sends out millions of spores through your AC ducts. This can trigger asthma and other respiratory diseases.

Reasons to Replace Roof Shingles
Storm damage – Tropical-force winds can catch worn-out composition shingles by the edge and rip them right off. Those that are improperly fastened to the plywood deck can also lift, allowing water to come inside. You may not realize it until the damage is done. Let us work with your insurance company to replace your shingles. 

Insurance requirements – Citizens and a growing number of insurers are unlikely to renew your policy if your roof does not meet stringent hurricane codes – or your premium could go up. This includes the shingles as well as the metal clips that secure the entire structure. If you have to replace your roofing, call now. We know the requirements and know how to correct problems. 

Improper installation – Believe it or not, this is the number one reason you may have to replace roof shingles. Unfortunately, even homes in high-end neighborhoods may have been roofed using poor materials or improper techniques. You have found a company that puts honesty, integrity and craftsmanship first – and has done so for more than 25 years. 

Age – Today’s asphalt shingle systems are high-tech and strength tested; but an older roof may not last as long as it was intended to. If yours is more than ten years old, you may need to change out your shingles. Call for a free, no obligation inspection. Count on us to give you an honest assessment, fair pricing and quality work. 

Replacing or repairing an asphalt roof is an improvement project that can be daunting for the average person with little experience in construction. There are few projects that are more important to get right than replacing or repairing your existing roof. Roofs that are old, damaged and in disrepair can leave your home or business vulnerable to leaks. Even if you did a great job on your do-it-yourself projects inside your home, a leak in your roof can quickly destroy all that hard work and jeopardize the health of your family.

Every asphalt roof will need to be replaced during the life of a house. A typical asphalt roof will have a lifespan of about 15-25 years, depending on a number of variables including the initial quality of the roof, the quality of the installation work and the very climate in which the house resides. 
  • As the roof ages, the wear becomes more apparent in the appearance of the shingles. The shingles will shrink, widening the gap between each shingle and often the shingles will be seen cracking, curling and lifting while also losing their granular coating.
  • The oils in the shingles soften due to sun exposure. So a home in a sunny environment will need to have the roof replaced more often.

Depending upon the severity of the damage from age and weather, it may be possible to roof-over the existing roof, but if there are already two layers of shingles on the roof, a tear off and replacement will be needed to insure the stability of the roof and prevent overloading the roof frame.
