With a population of more than 4 million people in the Tampa Bay area, it’s likely that at least few dozen people are making a roofing decision this week. If you’re one of them and you haven’t handled a roof repair or roof replacement project before, you’ll want to make sure you’re making informed decisions along the way. As a local expert with more than 25 years in the business, we can guide you through a few simple things to consider before getting a roofing project underway.

If you’re thinking that you’ll handle re-roofing alone, consider the value of your home’s best system of protection. A well-made, properly installed roof is vital to keep the structure and your home’s contents safe. An amateur approach to the job could lead to common mistakes and failure to anticipate the kinds of problems that can occur due to weather here in Tampa Bay. In addition, an uninsured roofer who has an accident on your property could leave you responsible for costs related to injuries and property damage.

Proper installation will not make up for the decision to use low-grade materials. Another common issue you may encounter with some contractors is failure to protect the roof deck and install additional leak barriers. The ideal materials are part of an integrated system, made specifically for use together on the same roof.

Spending thousands of dollars on a roof replacement in Tampa Bay should provide you with coverage for the materials and workmanship. A solid warranty from the manufacturer and the roofing company itself provides peace of mind for years to come. If you’re getting no warranty, or one that covers a period of less than 10 years, it’s wise to keep shopping for another roofing company.
