Over the past 15 years there have been significant changes to building and roofing codes that have caused manufacturers to improve the quality of their products and roofing contractors to rethink the best way to install your new roof system. The Wind Mitigation Act of 2007 set forth clear standards for manufacturers and roofing contractors they must adhere too to help drive down the cost of homeowners insurance in Florida and extend the life expectancy of a new roof. The wind rating of your average shingle roof before 2007 was 70 to 80 mph, today it is 130mph. The life expectancy of your average shingle roof before 2007 was approximately 15 years today a new shingle roof should last 30 years or more.
The focus today is on installing a better roof system that includes hurricane straps, re-nailing the decking, better underlayment, stronger longer lasting shingles, tiles, and coverings. Roofing contractors have to be better trained and certified on the proper installation of these new roof systems, the crews have to be experience and the contractor has to have the financial stability to implement all these improvements.
Manufacturers have selected a hand full of roofing contractors in the greater Tampa Bay area to train and certify on the installation of their Life-Time-Roof Systems. The manufacturers such as GAF offer a 25 year Golden Pledge Warranty thru Certified Roofing Contractors like Albright Roofing & Contracting that guarantees and protects your roof for 25 years and longer.
When we evaluate the condition of your roof, our primary concern will be the roofing shingles or other finished roofing material. However, before deciding whether roof repair or new roof installation is right for you, there are some other areas of the roof that should also be inspected by a professional roofing contractor.
Over time, all roofs wear out and will eventually need to be replaced. If you wait too long to repair or replace the roof, you can end up with leaks and expensive damage. On the other hand, replacing the roof too soon is a waste of money. It's important to be aware of the common roofing problems and which ones should be dealt with right away so you can get the best value out of your hard-earned money.
The professionals at Albright Roofing & Contracting can assess the condition of your roof and determine any early signs of roof failure.
