Roofs come in a wide range of materials. Residential Florida roofing materials found on most homes in the Miami metro area are typically shingles, metal, or tile. Commercial roofs come in a wide variety of TPO, membranes, and other flat roof options. If you’re looking for a beautiful, long-lasting replacement for your current roof, metal and tile are two very popular options.
- Metal roofs are built to last for decades while withstanding strong winds, heavy rains, and harsh summer sunlight. Today’s metal roofing is available in a wide array of styles, colors, and finishes to match the architecture of any building.
- Tile roofs are tough, beautiful, and iconic. Imagine gorgeous terra cotta tiles, slate gray tiles, or anything in between. Not only do tile roofs last for decades but the individual tiles can be replaced in the event of cracks or damage.
Either option is an excellent investment for residential and commercial properties.
If you currently have a shingle roof, we can easily replace it with a metal roof. Metal roofing is lightweight, so your underlying roof won’t need additional reinforcement. In some circumstances, it can even be installed over your existing shingles for a cost-effective upgrade.
Both corrugated and standing seam metal roofs offer a significantly longer lifespan than traditional shingles. They can last between 40 and 70 years if they’re regularly monitored and maintained. Even in South Florida’s balmy climate, with lots of sunlight, heavy rainstorms, and moist heat, metal roofs can easily last for 40 years or more. Standing seam roofs last longer with less maintenance, as corrugated roofs will occasionally need small hardware replacements over the decades.
Tile roofs last even longer. Both clay and concrete tile varieties are durable and, in ideal conditions, they can last at least 50 years. With the Miami area being prone to lots of tropical storms and wind damage, a tile roof installed by T&E roofing can still be expected to last approximately 30 years.
Roof replacements are a fast way to protect and upgrade your home. Depending on the size of the roof, the project can be completed in as little as a day or two; more complex roofs or roofs of larger homes may take three or four days. However, it may take a few weeks to schedule the roof replacement, order the materials, and get everything ready for work to begin.
The cost of your new roof will depend on three main factors: the size of the roof, the material, and the availability of roofers. During the peak roof replacement seasons, you may see higher prices or delays before your roof can be replaced. Metal and tile roofs also cost more than conventional shingle options because of the materials and durability. For metal roofs, expect to spend approximately $10,000-20,000 for an average-sized roof; a tile roof may cost $15,000-$30,000 or more.
