Complete Roofing Solutions for Restoration and Installation in the Greater Tampa Bay Area
Roofing plays a crucial role in the safety and security of your home. One of the most important aspects of your roofing is the structural integrity of your buildings. Not only does your roofing protect your home from water, heat loss, air flow and the diffusion of water vapor, the protective aspects of the roof ensure the safety of you and your family. In order for your roofing to do its job properly, the proper materials and assembly you choose is extremely important.
No two roofs are constructed the same, and the cost can be extremely variable depending on the type of contractor you employ to do the work, the time of year and materials selected, as well as your location and the local rates at which contractors work. Of course, higher quality materials can cost you more, and so can the shape and style of the roof you choose. We offer free estimates for roofing work to create a strategy that works within your budget. We also offer military discounts. To find out more, call us at (844) 223-2233
Shapes of Roofing
You have choices when it comes to the shape of your roofing. While some shapes are more common, the selection we offer can provide will enable you to experience the benefits of a different style. Here, we provide details about the roofing shapes we offer.
Gabled – A single slope is featured on each side of the ridge of the roof to create a front façade featuring a triangle.
Side-Gabled – The front doorway is featured on the non-gabled side.
Front-Gabled – The front doorway is featured on the gabled side.
Cross-Gabled – Two individual gabled facades are created by constructing perpendicular wings to the main section.
What You Should Know About Roof Assembly
The heat flow of your home is controlled by the insulation featured in your roof. While you have many choices when it comes to thermal insulation, you should strongly consider how much moisture resistance is offered by each type. Water has a higher thermal conductivity when compared to air, so by selecting from polystyrene, cellular glass, polyurethane, phenolic foam filled by either air or gas, polyisocyanurate, mineral fiber or wood fiber, you can control the heat in your home.
Barriers to Vapor:
The diffusion of moisture from inside your home is controlled by the vapor barrier that is created by your roof. This barrier ensures that the temperature inside the home does not go below the dew point temperature, and is usually located at the warm side of the insulation. The vapor barrier works to control condensation in the roof and is affected by the type of material you choose for your roofing.
UV radiation can cause damage to your roof, so it is essential that the proper top covering is chosen. These covers come in the form of coatings that include mineral, metal and liquid applied coatings, as well as pavers and gravel. Each type of coating comes with specific levels of maintenance with pavers and gravel conferring higher resiliency but putting a higher level of vertical load on your structures.
