Importance of A Quality Roof
Your roof is one of the first defense mechanisms that helps protect your family from severe weather. Florida is known for its severe wind, hail and rain during storm season. These weather conditions will affect your roofs integrity. An old roof and storm damages are the most common reason homeowners in Florida need their roof replaced.
As your roof ages and becomes weathered, the shingles will show signs of brittleness, tears or granule loss. Granule loss and weathering are some of the main reasons your roof can look faded overtime. Although a faded roof is nothing to worry about- brittle or torn shingles can be more damaging if left unrepaired. As shingles are torn, your other roofing components become exposed to the climate and your roof can be more susceptible to leaks.
The most common signs of roof damage includes: torn shingles, blown off shingles, missing shingle tabs, broken sealant between shingle and roof underlayment, or a leaking roof.
Most roofs will start to face issues around 15-30 years old unless storm damages occur. The life expectancy of a shingle roof in Florida is estimated at 15-50 years. Life expectancy is dependent on the types of products installed on your roof and the weather climate in your area.
If your roof is showing severe signs of weathering or your roof is around 20 years old, it may be time to look into a new roof. Most insurance companies in Florida will not insure a roof older than 10-25 years old, especially after recent disasters like hurricane Ian.

Tile Roof Replacement
Tile roofs are a popular option in Florida because of its aesthetic appeal and it can be a more durable option.
There are several factors to consider when installing a tile roof. This includes: color, style, manufacture, and cost.
A tile roof is one if the most expensive roofing systems on the market along with metal. Not to mention, some tiles are on back order 3-8 months.
If you currently have a tile roof, it is important that a trained professional assesses your roof.
A tile roof replacement expert will understand that tiles can be easily broken when walking on them during the inspection process and that some older tiles are no longer manufactured today. This means its critical to not damage any of the roof tiles in case it does not need replaced. In some scenarios, some homeowners may not have extra back up tiles for repair if tiles become broken during an assessment.
