Residential Roofing Repair Contractor in Miami & Hialeah FL
Florida is known as the “Sunshine State,” and the roofing material used will not only determine how cool the house is but also how long the roof lasts. As much as it is important to get Vitamin D, people need a comfortable place when the heat proves too much. The type of roof you choose will determine how comfortable your home will be and whether you take advantage of the sunshine or not. Here are some materials your South Florida roofer may have you consider depending on their advantages and disadvantages. They range from low cost architectural shingles, to premium roofing materials that a roofing contractor can install.
Types of Residential Roofing
The most common material as far as shingle roofing is concerned because the shingles are relatively cheap and easy to install. There are numerous colors to choose from for a variety of styles and energy efficiency. All shingles are different, but for the most part, asphalt shingles are made from a fiber glass base, bonded with resin. This is then coated with asphalt to help aid in water proofing. We can help you get the custom size, thickness, shape and color that you want, and we can even include heat-reflecting granules to improve cooling. The shingles last an average of 35 years. However, they are not suitable for low-sloping or flat rooftops. Their composition and darker colors also make them absorb more heat.
Innovations in building materials have created flat roofing that is aesthetically appealing as well as efficient and safe.

- Need regular cleaning to remove debris and acidic bird droppings

Forget about the dreaded hot tin roof. They have evolved into energy-saving, cost-effective roofing materials. If you
have it in the budget, it’s always a good idea to go with the most durable, long lasting material for the job. In most cases,
this is metal. Although initially this will cost you more, a metal roof can last almost twice as long as a traditional asphalt
roof, and is more energy efficient. In addition to this, metal roofs are trending as a more modern, sleek look for your home.
- Are available in a wide range of styles, colors and textures

Barrel (Tile) Roofs:
These provide natural heat reflection, making them a great choice for cooling the home in a hot climate. Their curves also help in reflecting more heat, and they enhance the city’s aesthetic appeal. Their problem is that they cannot withstand heavy impact and usually crack can crack if impacted directly hard enough.
