What you should know about roof replacement

Replacing a roof can be a big deal for many homeowners, especially if this is the first time they are going through the process. Typically, we take the roof over our head for granted, so when the idea that it may have to be removed and replaced occurs, it can cause a lot of undue stress or anxiety. However, with our professional and experienced contractors at Stay Dry Roofing, we can help you complete your roof replacement in Tampa, FL and surrounding areas with ease. Our team strives to make your replacement process simple, hassle-free, and quick. This is the reason why we are one of Tampa Bay’s top roofers!

Signs you may need a roof replacement

  • A roof older than 25 years
  • Many broken, missing, or cracked shingles or tiles
  • A sagging, droopy roof
  • Mold growth or rust developing
  • Water damage or mold in the attic and ceiling

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Can’t I just get repairs done rather than a full replacement?

This often depends on the condition of your roof and the amount of damage it has suffered. At Stay Dry Roofing, our team offers honest and transparent roof assessments, so if the damage is repairable, we will let you know. Repairs are usually done when minor damage has occurred and the fix will keep the integrity of the roof for many more years. 

However, it can often be more expensive in the long run to constantly do repairs rather than just replace the roof. Imagine every few years having to do repairs just to keep the roof in shape? That will often be more of a headache and more costly than a straight roof replacement. And with a brand new roof, you’ll have peace of mind for many, many more years. 

2. Do I have to stick with the same style of roof?

Oftentimes you can get a new roofing material depending on the slope of your roof. There are a lot of factors that can go into this, but generally asphalt shingle roofs can also support metal roofs fairly easily. One of the things you should consider first is the HOA requirements so you don’t end up getting hit with big fines. 

One of the biggest restrictions to a new roof material is the framing. While it is possible to change the slope and framing of the roof, it often will increase the cost of your new roof. For some, having the aesthetic of their dreams makes this worthwhile though, and for others, damage to the supports may require replacement already. An evaluation of your current roof will help you understand what your options are.
