Moving House: 3 Roofing Options For Newly Bought Homes

Planning to buy a house? Although we’re not real estate experts, we’ve encountered a fair number of people who bought new houses and found that a structure or two are not up to their standards after all. The roof in particular is what homeowners should be paying close attention to. If the roof of the house you bought is past its prime, you need to replace it promptly.

Here’s what we recommend:

Shingle Roofing System

If your new home has asphalt roofing shingles, you shouldn’t be surprised. It’s perhaps the most common roofing system in the country. This popularity is a double-edged sword, really. On one hand, this means there’s a wide selection of shingle product options on the market. The flipside is the sheer number may overwhelm you.

As experts in Tampa roofing for many years, we strongly suggest you consider GAF’s shingle products. No other manufacturer offers attractive, durable, and cost-effective options. If you want something high-end, we recommend the Designer Lifetime Shingles. This line includes products that mimic the natural look of wood shake and the rugged beauty of slate.

You could also go with the product North America trusts. Timberline® Lifetime Shingles, best-selling asphalt shingles in the country, offers maximum protection and appeal. Like all of GAF’s Lifetime Shingles it comes with a limited lifetime warranty that protects your investment.

For hotter climates like the one we experience here in Florida , you need a roof with cooling properties to keep indoor temperatures at comfortable levels. Metal roofs have reflective properties, which means that it can bounce back a good percentage of the sun’s intense radiant energy.

The metal roofs we install here at Arry’s Roofing Services also have a built-in venting system, keeping your attic cool no matter how high the sun is outside. This benefits your cooling bills since you won’t have to overwork your AC.

When a metal or shingle roof just won’t do, we also offer tile residential roofing services. Tiles rival other materials in terms of appeal and performance. Concrete in particular is built to last a long time. Plus, you wouldn’t have to worry about intense weather damaging your roof. Tiles are very durable and can withstand rain, snow, wind, and other elements.

Your roof is an important investment. When you buy a house and find that the roof is substandard, don’t put off consulting your Tampa roofers for the best replacement.
