The longevity of roofing materials can vary dramatically. If you want the most bang for your roofing buck, turn to our Oviedo new roof team for guidance.
There are many reasons a homeowner could need a new roof. Storm damage is a big one. In Florida, the weather can be rough on roofs – rain, wind, lightning, hail, hurricanes – none of these are roof friendly. Our Advantage Roofing team can repair your roof if it has sustained damage from a storm. But if repairing your roof costs more than it would to replace it completely, we can help there too. Not sure if you need a repair or a replacement? Our Oviedo new roof team can tell you.
Another time a home may need a new roof is when you’re buying or selling. If you’re selling and your asphalt shingle roof is over ten years old, you should consider replacing it to get top-dollar offers. If you’re the buyer, have our team perform a roof inspection on your new home before closing. If it needs significant repairs, you can ask the sellers to install a new roof before you move in.
Our roof inspection team can prepare a report that your realtor can take to the seller’s realtor, outlining what repairs are needed or if a new roof is recommended.
Regardless of why you need a new roof, let’s discuss what type of roof you’ll have us put on your home and how long your new roof should last.
Asphalt is still the most popular type of roofing material because these shingles are easy to install and are relatively inexpensive. Asphalt provides adequate protection from the elements and should have a lifespan of 10-25 years. If you want your roof to make it to the higher end of that spectrum, having regular roof inspections and maintenance performed by the roofing pros at Advantage Roofing can help.
Asphalt shingles now come in various colors and styles, so you’re not just choosing between brown and black anymore. Work with our design team to find a shingle to match your style for your Oviedo new roof.
Until recently, metal roofs were mostly reserved for barns and industrial buildings. But we’re installing more and more metal roofs on homes these days, and here’s why: metal lasts! Metal roofs can last over 75 years, so if you are in your “forever home,” a metal roof could be the last one you have installed.
Metal comes in many colors and can add a designer’s touch to your home. While metal is more expensive than asphalt to install, your return on investment is higher because you won’t need to replace your metal roof in 10-25 years like you would with asphalt.
Tile is a beautiful choice, especially in our tropical climate, because it holds up wonderfully to high heat. Tile also comes in many colors and styles to add a truly unique look to your home.
Because tile is so heavy, it takes longer to install, so your cost will likely be higher than metal and asphalt. But, a tile roof can last 50 years with regular maintenance, so it’s a smart choice if you want the ultimate in energy efficiency and don’t want to replace your roof again. If you think tile is right for your home, we can help you choose the style for your specific needs and preferences.
