Why Choose Shingles
Shingle roofs are among the least expensive options. They are also quicker and easier to setup and tear down. Shingles are a good option for homeowner who don’t plan on residing in or owning the home longer than 20 years.
Disadvantages of Choosing Shingles
As all other roofing material, shingles have their disadvantages. Here in South Florida, the heat can cause damage over time. A single damaged shingle can lead to a larger leak in your roof, especially when there is heavy rain.
Our material is typically an asphalt-saturated base made of fiberglass with a coating of mica, quartz, stone, ceramic, schist or slate. The organic material (granules) on top of the shingles deflect UV rays from the sun, which can overheat your home and ultimately damage your roof.
Damaged shingles can easily be repaired, in most cases, with replacement shingles. The key is to act promptly by seeking out the right roofing professionals.
Roof cleaning is really important for various reasons. Health, home energy-efficiency, and your home’s aesthetics are at the top of the list of reasons. Cleaning your roof routinely (every 24 months) can help you avoid many issues later that are more expensive than cleaning. Algae growth on your roof is the most common concern here in South Florida’s tropical climate. The algae cause roofs of all types to appear very dirty and blackish.
When hiring someone to clean your roof, it is critically important for them to be well experienced professionals or further damage is caused. Ideally, to remove algae, a chemical solution must be administered through a low-pressure sprayer. The chemical solution we use will eliminate all algae, fungus, mildew and all other microscopic spores that lead to toxic growth and damage.
