How long does a roof typically last?
A roof’s lifespan depends on several factors, including construction materials, climate, and maintenance. The Florida weather can be harsh on your roof. Selecting the right materials and properly maintaining your roof can lengthen the lifespan of your roof. An asphalt shingle expertly applied roof can last 15 to 20 years. A metal roof that is expertly installed can last upwards of 70 years. Tile roofing can last about 30 years.
How will I know if I need to repair or replace my roof?
Homeowners often neglect their roofing system until it begins to leak or more serious damage occurs. Common signs of roof damage include torn or missing shingles, soft spots, water damage, leaks and more roof debris than normal. If your Kissimmee or Orlando, FL home has any of the above-mentioned symptoms give the roofing repair experts at Heart of Florida Roofing today at (407) 462-5414.
Can you install a new roof during the winter months?
In Florida, we can install a roof year ’round, with only minor adjustments due to severe weather conditions.
Can I do roof work myself?
Roofing work is generally not a DIY project. Professional roofing contractors are trained and benefit from years of experience to safely & effectively repair or replace your roof. An untrained homeowner can harm a roof with improper roofing techniques and even harm themselves if the right tools & safety equipment are not used. Most DIY roofing projects end in additional costs and headaches for the homeowner. It is advised to leave it up to a professional roofing contractor.

How long does a new roof installation take?
Most roofs are completed in 1-2 days. However, the exact amount of time it will take to complete your roof installation will depend on quite a few factors: the size & complexity of your roof, the weather & season, if your old roof needs to be removed, the size of the roofing crew, and unforeseen issues with the roofing system. As noted earlier, most smaller uncomplicated roof may only take a 1-2 days to complete whereas a large, complicated roof structure with a number of problems may take several weeks to finish. If you would like a better estimate for your particular roof, call our roofing experts today at (407) 462-5414.
After a storm, how soon do I need to get repairs completed?
Delaying repairs to a storm-damaged roof may not cause structural damage, but most insurance companies do have a timeframe for a claim to be filed and repairs completed following a storm event. It is highly advised to not wait on getting your roof repaired after a harsh Florida storm.
