Top Shingle Choices for Residential Roofing in Miami
Listen, we at JJ Quality Builders Inc. know that replacing or repairing the roof of your Miami home isn’t exactly cheap or convenient. But your roof is a wonderful feat of structural engineering, and deserves to be treated with respect. The roof of your home protects you from the elements and keeps your house standing every single day. That’s worth putting a little money down on.
So when it comes to roof repair and replacement, you’re probably wondering what the best options are for you and your Miami home. While there are actually dozens of materials that a roof can be made out of—including traditional straw hatching—at JJ Quality Builders Inc. we specialize in metal roofing and in asphalt shingles, so we’re going to focus on those two material classes. If you want to indulge in some mud-brick roofing, be our guest! But if you’re looking for something sturdy and affordable, check out this guide.
Asphalt Shingles: A Revolution in Chemistry
Okay, so we’re not actually claiming that asphalt has revolutionized the world. But it’s come pretty close. This fantastic petroleum byproduct isn’t just for the roads and driveways we drive and park on every day. Dozens of items important to modern life can incorporate asphalt in some way, and guess what? Your roof is no different.
Asphalt shingles were invented right here in America, and quickly became the most popular option for roofing materials because asphalt can be cheaply produced, uses up parts of the oil refining process, and also is waterproof and sturdy. That’s a winning combination for a roof in our books—and in the books of millions of American homeowners!
So what’s the downside? Well, for most roofing jobs, there aren’t many. Asphalt shingles are guaranteed by warranty for only about 20 years. That may sound like a long time, but it’s not compared to the total life of the average home. So while you may save money at first, you may need to replace your shingles once or twice if you stay in the same place for life.
The other big problem? Asphalt isn’t good for the environment and produces a lot of waste. But considering its durability and affordability, that may be a price you’re willing to pay.
Metal Roofing – Stable and Luxurious
When most people in Miami think about metal roofing, they probably think of ugly and rusted sheets of corrugated metal, or the hissing sound of a tin roof. Well, metal roof technology has come a long way. It’s now easier and more affordable than ever to have roofing contractors lay down a beautiful metal roof that will last generations.
Metal roofing shingles can be made of virtually any metal you desire, painted any color, and given any finish. You’ll pay significantly more up front, but your roof won’t need replacing for 50 to 100 years. Odds are it’s your children who will be doing the replacing, not you!
Metal roofs are resistant to weather damage and can handle tough Miami storms. You’ll even save money on heating your house. Overall, if it’s within your budget, we recommend metal roofing for pretty much any home.
Three Signs Your Home’s Roof May Need to be Repaired
Much like how a squeaky car may be an indicator that it is time to bring it into the mechanic, your roof will also often give you a subtle, or not so subtle, sign that repairs are needed. If you have been performing regular maintenance work, then the likelihood of serious repairs being required is reduced. However, the fact of the matter is that as your home ages, the roof will begin to depreciate and as a result will need to be repaired properly. With that in mind, here are three telltale signs that your roof has seen better days and may need some assistance to get back to its best:
- Moisture where it normally shouldn’t be is arguably the first sign that something is wrong with your roof and needs to be addressed. Signs of water damage include staining and peeling on walls and ceilings. Also look for water stains on pipes that vent through the roof and damp areas around your home’s fireplace.
- Structural issues such as sagging on the underside of a roof is another indicator that your home’s roof may need some immediate repair work. Other structural problems that you need to keep an eye on include loose and missing shingles as well as damaged seals, cracks, and debris damage in and around chimneys and vents.
- Critters are another indicator that you have a problem in your home’s roof. Damage from wildlife like rodents, birds and insects need to be addressed. Sounds of animals moving in the roof or walls also indicate that you may have an issue.
