Roofing Up! Tampa Residents Get Busy for Summer

By Stacy Mellete

Tampa’s climate is generally characterized by hot summer days – from around mid-May through mid-October – with frequent thunderstorms, which occasionally intensify, resulting in heavy downpours, strong winds, frequent lightning and sometimes hail.

That’s why in this time of the year, Tampa residents get busy with many home improvements and one task that is particularly important to invest time and money into – roof repair or replacement. Homeowners ought to realize that their house deserves some extra attention because neglecting it can lead to high energy bills and extensive damage when storms do arrive.

Still, to those who have a penchant for procrastinating, this article provided helpful tips – the same kind that you would get if you seek advice from a contractor for roof repair in Tampa:

There are numerous types of roofing material. Metal, slate, composite, clay tile, wood shakes, and asphalt shingles are possible materials. Your decision will likely come down to budget, location, and personal preference. I will focus on asphalt shingles since they are the most popular budget conscious —if spending several thousand dollars can be considered budget conscious—and they are what we chose to use.

Architectural shingles (also referred to as laminated or dimensional shingles) are the latest addition to the shingle line up. Most homeowners who are looking for an upgrade in style and function chose architectural shingles.

Once you’ve narrowed down your decision to type of shingles and brand. Ask your roofer if they have samples or where you can get sample boards. The sample board will have a few rows of the actual shingles glued to a board. This is a good place to start.

When hiring a professional service, go with a trusted contractor for roof repair in Tampa FL like Affordable Roofing Systems because they have all the necessary qualifications and their goal is to give you the workmanship your home deserves. They really make it “affordable” by offering convenient payment terms though their financing program where qualified homeowners can avail of any service even with no down payment.
