Frequently asked questions
As Florida roofers, we have inspected thousands of roofs of all ages and materials, and based on our experience this is what we believe:
- A shingle roof will typically last between 15-20 years before needing replacement.
- A metal roof system will last 35+ years.
- A tile roof will last anywhere from 20-40 years before needing replacement.
A major contributing factor to the longevity of your roof system (specifically shingles) is exposure to significant wind events. Even if your roof has never been through a hurricane, violent thunderstorms can create winds of over 60mph. If this happens on a regular basis (once or twice a year), you could see a significant reduction in the lifespan of any given shingle roof.

As soon as you sign a contract us, our production department will send you an NOC (Notice of Commencement) for signature, and with this document, we will apply for your permit in the municipality that your property is located in. Depending where you are, this process will take between 1-3 weeks.
Additionally, our production department will send you a color selection sheet and an email with several links to the websites of our preferred suppliers so that you can see and select material and colors that you would like.
Finally, you will receive a deposit invoice from our accounting department, once we receive the deposit and you return the color selection sheet with your final pick, we will order the material and confirm the start date of your project.
From the moment the material is delivered to your property to final inspection of your new roof is about 1-2 weeks. There will be city inspections scheduled in between that’s why it may take up to two weeks. There will only be about three days of actual work during this time frame.

A basic roof replacement work scope includes removal of the shingle, metal, or tile surface that’s currently on your roof; removal of the underlayment down to the plywood deck; replacement of damaged plywood and sub-fascia lumber; additionally, the drip edge metal on the edge of the roof will be removed and replaced along with all vents, pipe boots and valley metal.
L-flashing on roof to wall connections will only be replaced if it is damaged and does not meet code.
Skylights, chimneys, and chimney caps are not part of a basic roof work scope.
Gutter, soffit, and fascia replacement is not part of a basic roof work scope, but we would be glad to provide you with an estimate for this as well.
Soffit and fascia are the finish materials on the eaves of your roof.
Soffit is typically vented and is an important piece of your home’s envelope. It is installed under the overhang of your roof and helps protect your roof deck/attic from moisture.
Fascia is the trim piece that goes over the lumber sub-fascia and in recent construction application secures the outside edge of the soffit. It is usually a flat piece of trim – wider than the trim used on the rest of the house. It is considered the last line of defense for your roof line and rafters against the elements.
Gutters are installed along the eaves of the house to collect rainwater and discharge it in a controlled fashion. These are some of the reasons why it’s important to consider gutters for your roof:
