After your signature on the estimate, you will get a Notice of Commencement (NOC) for your signature so that we may pull the permit with the Municipality in Lehigh Acres. You will also be provided a color selection sheet from which you may choose the brand and color that you want. We will schedule your project and start with the following procedures after we have received all of the paperwork and materials:

Day 1: Material for the dry-in will be delivered to the house and loaded onto the roof.

Day 2: We will begin the tear-off.

  • Our crew will show up with a 6-10 workers depending on the size of the roof. We try to tear-off the entire roof in one day. Sometimes due to extra plywood and fascia needing to be replaced we may have to send a few workers out for a second day.

  • We will bring plywood and tarps to protect the driveway, ac units, exterior pumps and equipment, and as much landscaping as we can reasonably cover.

  • We use dump trailers to dispose of the construction debris so there is less chance of damaging the driveway and also because this allows us to not leave anything in the driveway overnight.

  • Jobsite will be cleaned thoroughly before we leave for the day.

Day 3 or 4: The local municipality will come out to perform an inspection of the dry-in.

Day 3 or 4: Our supplier will run the metal package on site and stage on the driveway.

Day 5-7: Our crew will install the metal and perform a final cleaning of the jobsite.

Day 7-10: Any required soffit, fascia, and gutters will be completed once the metal installation is finished

Day 7-10: Final Inspection from the local authority.

Dry-in Process

  • For the dry-in, we utilize Polyglass TU MAX self-adhering underlayment. This is a premium product and is currently over and above required code minimums. Some of our competitors will utilize a nail able system which can allow water to penetrate in a wind driven rain scenario.

  • We use galvanized steel drip edge, valley metal, and flashing that is color matched to the final metal panels.

  • We utilize only metal head simplex nails for nailing the head laps of the underlayment for the dry-in which are superior to the plastic head simplex nails that are used by other contractors.

  • We use galvanized 1 ¼” coil nails to attach the drip edge, valley metal, and flashing. All metal is nailed 6” on center as per code.

  • When we install drip edge on the eave, we first install a 6” self-adhering base sheet along the entire eave. The drip-edge is placed on top of that base sheet and then the TU MAX underlayment is able to lap over the drip edge. This is over and above code requirements which allow for simply installing the drip edge on top of the underlayment. Our process of installation provides more long-term protection of the fascia and soffit materials by preventing small scale leaks through the drip-edge fasteners.

  • Once all underlayment has been applied and metal has been installed, we cover all flashing and valleys laps with roof cement to prevent any water intrusion.

Advantages of Metal Roofing in Lehigh Acres, Florida

Metal roofing offers a number of advantages over traditional asphalt shingles. Some of the key benefits of metal roofing in Florida include:


Metal roofing is known for its durability and resistance to weather damage. This makes it a great choice for homes in Florida, which are exposed to hurricanes and tropical storms.

Energy Efficiency

Metal roofing reflects the sun's heat, reducing the amount of heat transferred into your home. This can help lower your energy bills and keep your home cooler in the summer months.


Metal roofing has a longer lifespan compared to traditional asphalt shingles. In many cases, a metal roof can last 50 years or more, while asphalt shingles typically last 20-30 years.

Low Maintenance

Metal roofing is easy to maintain and does not require frequent repairs or replacement.

Environmentally Friendly

Metal roofing is recyclable and does not contain any harmful chemicals. This makes it a more environmentally friendly option compared to traditional asphalt shingles.
