Video Blog: Tips on Choosing the Right Roof Replacement

By Stacy Mellete

Not all roofs have the same features; some can last for up to 12 years, while others offer a lifetime service, depending on the material. Nevertheless, roof replacement is not a constant issue for many homeowners.

When it’s finally time to replace your old system, you might feel overwhelmed with the number of options on the market. As the leading roofing company in Clearwater FL, and the nearby areas, Affordable Roofing Systems can help you make smart residential roofing decisions. Here are four tips to keep in mind when planning a roof replacement:


  1. Choose the Right Shingle – The material plays a key role in your roof’s durability and aesthetic appeal. That’s why it’s important to choose one that will not only protect your home from severe weather, but also improve your home’s value. GAF®, the country’s largest and leading roofing manufacturer, offers three impressive types. Three-Tab shingles offer topnotch weather resistance despite their basic look. Architectural shingles, on the other hand, are almost the same as Three-Tab, but with a more elegant and stylish appearance. Finally, Lifetime Designer shingles add character to your home thanks to their unmatched beauty. Available in many colors and styles, all shingles offered by GAF can suit just about any taste.
  2. Install a Complete Roofing System – Installing a new roof is more than just nailing on the shingles, though. It is a system of components that work together to protect your home from the elements. For a hassle-free experience, choose an integrated system from a single manufacturer. That way, you won’t have trouble finding the company in question once you notice problems along the way. GAF’s Lifetime roofing system consists of different components, such as leak barriers, roof deck protection, and ridge cap.
  1. Pick the Right Warranty – As a GAF Master Elite™ roofing contractor in Clearwater FL, Affordable Roofing Systems offers industry-leading warranties from GAF. The company has developed enhanced warranties that provide better protection not just on the shingles, but on the complete system. To give you absolute peace of mind, we offer strong warranties for both the materials and workmanship.
  2. Work with a Reliable Contractor – You can maximize the benefits of your residential roof by working with a manufacturer-certified contractor, such as Affordable Roofing Systems. Our certifications place us among the most trusted roofing companies in the region.
