if you are having a leak problem, it does not necessarily
indicate that a new roof is imminent. The age of the
roof and the “signs of deterioration”
determine if repairs are a viable solution or you
need a complete re-roof.
The signs of deterioration on any type of roof system
can be attributed to a combination of ultraviolet
rays from the sun, storms, insects, and temperature
changes. Ultraviolet rays are probably most damaging;
therefore it is quite common to find one area of your
roof showing more severe deterioration than others.
Structural damage from termite, hail, wind, rotting
or settling of the house structure or chimney can
cause damage that is sometimes hidden from view.
Keeping your roof free of debris is critical to the
integrity of any roof system. Also, traffic should
be kept at a minimum; only walk on your roof when
it is absolutely necessary to perform maintenance
such as cleaning the gutters, skylights, or the roof
itself. The steeper the pitch or the slope of the
roof, the more life expectancy you can expect from
you have a Tile Roof System, the life expectancy is
30-100 years. The integrity of a tile roof is totally
dependent on the roof underlayment. The tile, itself,
can last forever but will not keep your home watertight
unless the underlayment is intact.
can be deceiving when evaluating the condition of
your roof. The tile may appear to be in excellent
condition; it is not possible to inspect the underlayment
without removing the tile. For this reason, repairs
on Tile roof systems are more costly than other types
of systems. When the underlayment does deteriorate,
the only solution is to remove the existing tile,
replace the underlayment and re-install the tile.
tile cannot always be secured to match your existing;
anticipate the possibility of using a similar tile
to complete the project.

THE RIGHT MATERIAL
choosing a roofing system for your home, the factors
you should consider are Wind Warranty, Weight, Durability,
Fire Rating, Appearance and
Cost. The appearance you want from
your roof and what your budget can afford should be
determined before you start shopping. Also, know what
type of structure your home has. This will determine
how much weight the structure can hold and whether
it will be necessary to reinforce or apply plywood
before the new roof application.
When comparing manufacture's "Wind Warranties" look at the highest rated wind speed and for how many years. Some have high wind warranties that are only up to the first 5 years after installation whiles others are the life of the product.
the durability of a material, check to see
what kind of manufacturer’s warranty is offered
and what type of warranty the contractor will offer.
Remember, the warranty offered is only as good as
the manufacturer or contractor who stands behind it.
rating is a critical factor in selecting a material
and protecting your home. Since most roofing materials
are combustible to some degree, they may be vulnerable
to external fire exposure. Some roofing materials
will propagate a rapidly spreading fire over the surface
or may allow the fire to penetrate the roofing material
and to communicate to the interior of the building;
this should be avoided.
Once you have narrowed it down to a few materials
that are suitable for your home and budget, you may
want to get some addresses of homes that have been
roofed with these materials. Feel free to ask your
prospective contractor to provide you with proposals
for any options you may be interested in.
roofs - Frequently chosen to match the architecture
of the home. This type of roof system is on the high
end as far as price. The underlayment is critical
to the integrity of this type of system. If you are
installing a tile roof, you should consider applying
2 layers of #30 felt or a SBS underlayment. Tile roofs
are fragile; if you need to maintenance your roof
frequently you should take this into consideration.
Tile roofs typically weigh more than other types even
though lightweight tiles are now available.
roofs - They have gained in popularity after recent hurricanes. They have the highest wind warranty (150 mph), more energy efficient than tile or shingles, will last a lifetime and with the Stone Coated Metal panels, you can get the look of a tile or cedar shake roof besides the traditional standing seam. Metal roofing is also lighter than tile and even shingles. They have a class A fire rating, a class 4 impact rating, are not noisy and do not attract lightening as some may have thought.
Roofs - Options for Flat Roofs, or roofs that
have less than a 2/12 pitch, include Tar &
Gravel or Capsheet, Torch-Down single-ply systems,
Acrylic system, and PVC single-ply systems.
Gravel or Capsheet system was about the only option
up until several years ago. This type of system consists
of a base sheet, mopped with 3 plys of hot asphalt
with felt in between, and covered with either a layer
of gravel or a mineral surface capsheet. This system
is quite heavy, weighing 550 lbs. per sq. This type
of application requires a kettle with hot asphalt
to be at the job site, which produces an offensive
odor; it also is conducive to higher safety risks.
This type of application is becoming more obsolete
as other flat roof systems offer more advantages for
the same amount of money.
single-ply systems are an asphalt based roof system
with a small percentage of rubber. This does make
this system more flexible than a hot-mop application,
but it still inherits the same deficiencies. This
system can be repaired more efficiently and with better
success than a hot-mop and is more attractive. This
system is applied with a torch, thus eliminating the
odor produced by a hot-mop. This roof application
is rated to be a 15 year roof, but we have been seeing
systems are a long-term solution to end flat roof
problems. This type of system is costlier and is dependant
on weather conditions to properly cure. This type of system is applied
with an industrial sprayer or can be rolled on smaller
projects. The system consists of a primer, 2 layers
of base coat, a layer of polyester fabric to shear
up the strength and two top coats. The application
can frequently take weeks to complete because of atmospheric
conditions. PVC systems are considered to be the state-of-the-art
applications for flat roofs; there are a variety of
manufacturers. This type of roof system can be expected
to last 25 or more years.
