Combating Storm Damage (Part 2): Roof Replacement Options

By Stacy Mellete

Your roof serves as your first line of defense against the elements that can harm your home. If your existing structure is aged and failing, then replacing it might be your best option. When searching for the right material for your roofing in St. Petersburg, FL, it’s important to check for quality and durability.

This way, you can be assured that you’ll be getting the most out of your investment.

In the first part of this two-part series, Affordable Roofing discussed the effects of storm damage to homes and the ways to mitigate them. In this second installment, we will discuss the different roof replacement options you should consider if your current system is damaged beyond repair.

Metal Roofing

Metal is one of the most durable materials around. Unlike other options, our metal roofing in St. Petersburg, FL, is non-porous, making a solid surface that water can’t penetrate. Advances in paint and coating technology have also remarkably enhanced the performance of metal roofs, completely eliminating the worries for corrosion.

Asphalt Shingle Roofing

This type is one of the most popular choices across the county. It is easy to install and is often the most affordable choice for residential roofing. At Affordable Roofing, we only use high-quality asphalt shingles from the most trusted brands in the industry. They can protect your home from the toughest elements while only requiring minimal upkeep. In addition, they come in a wide array of profiles, textures, and colors to create a design that will match your home’s architectural style.

Stone-Coated Roofing

As your trusted roofing contractor in Tampa, FL, we offer one of the most durable and beautiful options available today – stone-coated roofing. This consists of shingles or steel panels that are covered with stone chips, providing lasting curb appeal and protection.

This system is resistant to water damage, storm damage, and other factors that can compromise the roof structure.

Each of these roof options offers superior weather resistance and other unique benefits, so you can choose which matches your home best. Call us today at (813) 542-8462 to request a free estimate or to schedule a consultation.
