Your roof protects your home and your family. When it comes to installing a new roof or maintaining your current roof, you can’t cut corners on quality, especially for Florida homeowners. Roofs in Florida have to be engineered to withstand a number of elements in order for them to last their entire useful life.
Florida Wreaks Havoc on Roofs
Your roof has to combat three major enemies in Florida: heat, moisture, and wind.
These “big three” factors give your roof a hard time year-round. It’s important that when your roof is being installed or repaired, you trust the right roofing contractors to carry out the job, ensuring the safety and quality of your roof.
Six Ways Quality Roofing Can Extend a Florida Roof’s Life
Give your Florida roof it’s best chance by ensuring that every aspect of your roof is installed and maintained correctly.
Quality Roofing Contractors
To begin, hiring quality and insured roofing contractors will save you money in the long run and you’ll rest easy knowing that your roof is properly constructed. So when spells of bad weather occur, your roof can withstand the elements.
From the labor needed during installation of a roof to the materials used, quality is essential for a roof that is built to last. With McFall Residential Roofing, we are more than just another roofing company. We take the time to thoroughly and properly install any roof to make sure that your investment lasts its entire useful life.
Engineered for Storm Season
When your roof is installed and repaired by quality roofing contractors, you can be prepared for storm season that plagues Florida. We use shingles engineered to withstand high-speed winds. For asphalt shingle roofs, this is essential because the loss of shingles is a common problem after a storm.
Also, having a high-quality roof during the rainy season is crucial to avoid water leaks. Your roof should be engineered to promote proper water drainage because you can bet that Florida will deliver some serious downpours. Pooling water on your roof will only give you more problems and increase the risk of damaging the interior of your home.
Correct Venting to Protect Your Home
When installing a roof, it’s imperative that proper ventilation takes place in your home. Outside air needs to be able to be cycled through your attic and then back into the outdoors. Quality roofing contractors don’t cut corners when it comes to venting. Faulting venting could lead to moisture problems in your home or incorrect air flow. Not all roofs require venting in cases where there is not a lot of roof ridge line to work with or spray foam is utilized. In those instances, we offer other energy efficient options to make sure your roof is engineered to suit your home.
With McFall Roofing, we only use the best on-ridge shingle over venting to ensure your roof works for you and not against you.
Proper Installation Promotes Longer Roof Life
From the time your new roof is installed until its last useable day, your roof should be able to carry out its job. If the beginning of its life is compromised by poor installation or a quick fix, it only creates more issues for you and your home in the future. We use the highest quality underlayment that is reflective and energy efficient. Our competitors can’t say the same!
From installing a protective underlayment to using stainless steel nails we use to install shingles, your roof should be properly installed to protect you and your family in all kinds of weather. Only a quality roofing company can deliver on that promise with proper installation.
Protecting Against Prolonged Sun Exposure
Florida is affectionately known as the sunshine state. Your roof will definitely feel the effects of this prolonged sunshine. The most popular roofing choice in Florida is asphalt shingle roofs for their price point and their flexibility.
With these shingles, sunlight will heat the shingle and cause it to warp. If your home doesn’t receive a lot of shade, it’s important to consider a lighter shingle color. Not only will the lighter colored shingles reflect sunlight better, but they can also promote cooler temps in your home and save you money on energy bills! One of our roofing contractors would be happy to help you decide on which roofing option is suited best for your home and budget.
Thorough Roof Inspections
Finally, Florida weather is unpredictable and can give your roof problems throughout the year. Having routine roof inspections by the right roofing company will save you money, prolong your roof’s life, and better protect your family.
Our roofing contractors know what to look for and can pinpoint problem areas that may be unseen by the naked eye. By understanding your roof and your needs, we’ll be able to help your roof serve you best, any time of the year.
