Vanderprises, LLC answers some of our clients’ most frequently asked questions.
The main components of a residential roof system are roof decking or sheathing, underlayment, roof flashings, rafters or trusses, and roof material.
Asphalt shingle is the most common roofing type in Florida. It is affordable, can match any home style, and lasts for about 25-30 years. Other popular roofing systems are metal roofs, concrete tile roofs, clay tile roofs, and wood shake and shingle roofs.
No matter how well you maintain your roof, there will come a time when it will need replacement. Your roof’s age, the condition of the shingles, and the extent of the damage are some of the factors we look at when determining if replacement is the right choice.
That depends on the quality and lifespan of the roofing material used. Asphalt shingles, for example, should last 30 years before needing replacement. Wood shingles last 20-25 years, rubber roofs last 30-50 years, while metal roofs can last anywhere from 50 to 75 years.
While any homeowner can replace or repair their own roof, we don’t generally recommend it. Attempting to complete a roof replacement project on your own will not really save you money and you might not even love the results.
It’s best to leave the project to the professionals because they are more experienced, equipped, and knowledgeable about the safety precautions that should be followed when replacing roofs.
Roof repair is a worthy choice if it’s just minor damage and is limited to small areas. It will quickly remedy the problem and extend your roof’s lifespan without costing you a fortune. However, if the damage is too severe for repairs, you may need to consider a complete roof replacement.
Yes. Depending on the type of damage and the percentage of the total roof surface needing repair, we can fix it without a total replacement.
Yes, we highly recommend replacing your roof if you have plans to put your property out on the market. A new roof will not only increase your home’s value but will also boost its curb appeal, making it easier to attract homebuyers.
That depends on your roof’s size, the roofing design and materials, and the weather. But on average, small re-roofing projects can be completed in a day, while larger projects can take several days to a week.
Many factors determine the cost of a roof installation or replacement. At Vanderprises, LLC, we look at things like the roofing material type you want for your project, the labor and time needed to complete the work, and the size and complexity of your roof.
