Sometimes it seems there is always something that needs repaired on your home. Plumbing disasters occur more frequently than it seems like they should and now the roof is beginning to leak. While you might be able to handle simple plumbing issues or other minor problems, a leaking roof is probably out of your league. After all, repairing the roof normally requires accessing the top of the house and carrying some pretty heavy materials in the process. Plus, if the leaks are minor, the repair will also require someone who knows how to remove portions of the roof covering and replace them without damage to the rest.
These types of repairs are one of the primary reasons so many homeowners contact roofing contractors in Boca Raton. Roofing contractors repair everything from small leaks in asphalt roofs to replacement coverings of all types. They may starts a job that should be a simple repair and be confronted with a variety of unexpected damage. For example, when a roof leak is left alone it allows water to soak into existing decking, rafters and joists causing all sorts of wood rot. Once the supporting timbers of the roof begin to fail the roofer must strip the roof covering and replace the failing structure.
Roofing Contractors in Boca Raton like Paul Bange Roofing install a variety of different roof coverings. The most common of these are the typical asphalt shingle that covers so many household roofs. Asphalt roofing is popular because it provides twenty years or more of stable use and is a very cheap alternative to most other roofing options. However, other possibilities are quickly coming into their own. For example, steel roofing is often the preferred method for roofing wherever a long term solution is desired.
Metal roofing comes in a variety of styles including one that resembles the traditional asphalt roofing and another that looks like wood shake. Steel roofing is a desirable product because it uses a galvanized coating to protect the steel which provides the strength of the product. In fact, most manufacturers of metal roofing guarantee the product for fifty years or more and many offer a lifetime warranty.
