The new year means a new start – not just for you, but for your home. Yes, the years aren’t always kind to a home. After all, it has to stand up to all kinds of tough weather here in Florida. Most of the housing stock in and around Jacksonville is more than 30 years old. That’s the time when maintenance expenses start to creep up.
Roof replacement is a big decision. Homeowners usually have to save up for it or put other priorities on pause for a while to get it done sooner. With that in mind, nobody wants to do a full teardown and replace a Jacksonville roof unless the time is right. That means just in time to get maximum value from a new roof without risking that your current one will leak or fall apart next storm season.
When you ask children to draw a house, they usually pick out the same style: A classic gabled roof with a chimney. Most folks don’t have much reason to learn about residential roofing in detail. So, when they wonder whether their roof is secure, they think of the surface, too: The shingles. Your roof’s shingles are crucial to its performance, but there’s a lot more to a roofing system!
Roof replacement is a major upgrade to your Jacksonville home – and one most homeowners only want to commit to once. After being installed by trusted professionals, the average shingle roof can last from 20-40 years. While you’ll often see 30 years quoted as an average, this represents ideal conditions. It doesn’t include Jacksonville wear and tear!
