Our free roofing inspection will help us determine the exact issue of your roof. We will look for leaks, roof damage, loose shingles, and find out the age of your roof. We will help you deal with any issues whether it is repair or replacement.
Water leaking through your roof can seep into your home in the most unexpected places, making it hard for you to notice the water intrusion until the damage becomes obvious, and fixing it becomes a big expense.

Roof Types for Your Home
When you are looking for a new roof for your home, you want to make the best decision because you know you want something that will look beautiful and improve the value of your property and last a long time.
Nowadays, the options available to homeowners are many, and it is important to know which one would provide the best roof for your home. Here are some of the most popular ones:
Asphalt shingles are by far the most popular roofing material for today’s homes. Their accessible price, coupled with their wide variety of colors and textures, and ease of installation, make it a great favorite. You can go for a soft blue or green, or go for an off-white or beige, taupe, or light brown, depending on the style and color of the rest of the home.
Made from fiberglass pressed between asphalt and ceramic granules to give color and deflect UV light, asphalt shingles are layered on roofs so that they give the appearance of more expensive shingles. If you want a more interesting texture, you can go for architectural asphalt shingles that are thicker and made to look like wood.
The South Florida area is particularly favorable for this type of roof since tile works great at reflecting heat. Also, tiles are a good match for Mediterranean and Spanish-style homes. Tile roofs offer different options such as clay tiles that are long-lasting and easy to maintain, concrete tiles that are more affordable, can be dyed any color or imitate wood or slate, and natural slate tiles that are eco-friendly and durable.
If you like the look of a metal roof, you can choose between copper, steel, aluminum, or alloy strips. Metal also comes in a variety of shapes and textures. Selecting copper will offer you an unparalleled experience of watching it acquire its characteristic greenish patina over time. Keep in mind that a metal roof can last up to 100 years.
A metal roof is ideal for the South Florida weather since it is great at reflecting the sun’s rays, keeping homes cooler in the summer months. The roofing contractors at Big Al’s are trained to install metal roofs, which are very different from installing shingle ones.
Roofing in Doral
When the time comes to repair your roof, your contractor will show you the damaged area and determine how much of the roof needs to be repaired or replaced. If there is a need to do only one area or if new shingles can be laid on top of the existing ones, your roofing contractor will work with you to make this possible and save you money over installing a full new roof. Your contractor will explain what replacements are allowed by the municipality.
To prepare an accurate estimate for the job, we will assess the state of all the roof components, including gutters, drip edge, flashing, roof valleys, and underlayment, and present a proposal to you to repair or replace what is needed.
And if you are interested in a new roof, we will gladly suggest what roofing material would work best and prepare an estimate for you. Give us a call today to get your roofing project started.
