Cleaning South Tampa Tile Roof

Posted Posted in Tampa Cleaning Roof FL, Tile Roof Cleaning Tampa FL
Here is a medium size barrel tile roof our guys cleaned today in South Tampa.
This roof was done on a Saturday, so we allowed our guys to head on over to the Ballast Point Pier and do a little fishing, before the expected thundershowers hit Tampa today.

Our customers were tickled pink at the results of their tile roof cleaning.
They just bought this home, and moved here to South Tampa from New Orleans.
He is an architect, and his wife is a nurse who got a job at Tampa General.
He works downtown, so both of them are pretty close to their jobs, in their new home.

If you have any kind of roof that needs to be washed, give us a call at 813 655 8777 for a free estimate, with no obligation.

Prepare Your Roof for Hurricane Season

Posted Posted in roofing contractor


It has been said that the Tampa area is long overdue, for  a Hurricane. So, getting your home prepared for hurricane and tropical storm season is essential, especially if you live in this area. While a major hurricane doesn’t hit every season and it can be tempting to put it off until later, being prepared in advance can help save your roof (and your home) from suffering unnecessary damage. It must also be remembered that summer thunderstorm can have wind gusts upwards of 50 mph!  Here are four tips to prepare your roof for the coming hurricane season.
1: Fix Missing or Loose Shingles
Missing or loose asphalt shingles might seem like a small thing, but they can lead to big problems if they are not taken care of before a Hurricane. Nail or caulk loose shingles and replace missing ones, or contact a roofing contractor in Tampa to come and take care of it for you. This will help prevent water from leaking into the home, or other damage from wind, rain, or hail. Also check for rusted flashing, loose eave and gable end vents, soffits, or turbines and get these things fixed before the storm. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, when it comes to preparing for a storm.

2: Consider Roof Tie-Downs
These truss tie-downs, often called “hurricane straps” help to brace the roof in very high winds and severe storms. They can help ensure that you don’t lose a whole portion of the roof to a large or sustained wind gust. Not every roof will need tie-downs, but it’s a good idea to talk to Tampa area roofing contractors to find out if it is advisable for yours.It also goes w/o saying that all mobile homes need tie downs in operating condition, so be sure to check them, before Hurricane Season begins.
3: Secure Yard Items
Outdoor furniture, smokers and grills,  and other decorations in your yard can quickly become flying projectiles that could damage your Tampa tile and shingle roofing. If you have these things, either tie them down or move them indoors to the garage, or shed so they don’t get loose and damage roof shingles and tiles.
4: Trim Back Trees
Trees in the yard can also become dangerous in a hurricane or tropical storm. If you have trees that hang over your home, trim them back a safe distance so they won’t break and fall onto the house during the hurricane or tropical storm.
Failing to prepare your roof for the coming storms  and hurricanes we get here in Tampa can cause a significant amount of damage. Get prepared so you don’t have to worry this storm season, but if the worst happens, call us at 813 655 8777 so we can suggest a qualified Tampa Roofing Contractor.

What Is The Best Roof For Tampa Florida ?

Posted Posted in Florida Roof, Tampa
 If you own a home here in the Tampa Florida area, you know how hard the humidity, wind, heat and sun are on the different types of roofing materials. So, let’s take a quick look at some of the most popular types of roofing materials used here..
In Florida,  fiberglass-based asphalt shingles are by far the most common roofing material used for residential roofing applications. They are easy to install, relatively affordable, last 20 to 30 years here,  and are recyclable in some areas. Asphalt shingles come in a large number of styles and colors. Often, zinc and copper granules are embedded in the granules of the shingles, to combat algae and mildew growth. These are commonly called algae resistant shingles, but they still get dirty  eventually, and require cleaning.

You’ll most commonly see tile roofs in the southern United States. Homes that are 50 or 60 years old may still have their original tile roof, thanks to superior durability.
Most tiles used for roofing are made from clay, concrete or sand, but improvements in the manufacturing process have led to lighter weight, composite tiles that offer the same kind of longevity. Manufacturers typically rate their tiles for 50 years of life with proper maintenance, but in many cases that’s a conservative estimate. In part, this is because of tile’s natural resistance to sun damage along with superior protection against insect damage and rot. Water does not decay tile, and tile offers no food source for insects.
Properly installed, a metal roof should last as long as the house, sealing out water, surviving high winds, and easily shedding snow. Metal is resistant to fire, mildew, insects, and rot. Warranties vary widely, but most companies back their products for 20 to 50 years. Paint finishes typically have a 30-year limited warranty.
