Below are photos of a 3400 sq ft Architectural Shingle Roof we just completed in the Kendall Area. The home had an atrium in the center with an opening all the way through the roof that the homeowner wanted sealed off with future plans of adding the area as living space below. Once the atrium was sealed, the pool was covered with plastic to keep any roofing debris from landing inside and we began to remove the old shingle roof.

There was minor decking and fascia damage that need to be replaced prior to 30 Felt and Tin Cap being installed. Finally the new architectural shingle was installed giving the new roof a nice texture over it’s large planes.

New Shingle Roof in Lauderdale Lakes

3-Tab Shingle Roof, New Roof / Roof Repair / No Comments

The homeowners of this 1965 home in Lauderdale Lakes needed a new roof. They decided on the more economical option, which was to replace their Flat Tile Roof with a 3-Tab Shingle Roof. A great choice as long as your community (local HOA or City) allows shingle roofs. It’s always a good idea to check with them because they may require a certain type of roof or color, etc.

We assured the homeowners that Tiles are only “Decorative” and explained that what makes your home water-tight is the roofing paper underneath. The roof was in pretty bad shape, requiring rotted decking & fascia replacement. The gallery below shows step-by-step photos of the roof replacement process.

The gallery below shows the process of removing a shingle roof and replacing it with Galvalume Standing Seam Metal Roof. This roof is located in West Miami, the color chosen by the homeowner was bronze.

After the old shingle roof was removed, all rotted decking/sheathing was replaced. Unique to the metal roof installation process is the use of VersaShield, which acts as a fire barrier and insulation. Once the VersaShield is installed, the standard 30 Felt Roofing Paper with Tin-Cap is next, followed by the installation of the Englert 24 GA Galvalume Standing Seam Metal Roof.

We recently installed a new Tamko Heritage Dimensional Shingle Roof at this home in West Miami. The homeowners chose the perfect color & style to compliment their home. Certified roofing contractors, Rausa Builders Corp, stripped down the roof to the decking, removing all old shingles and roofing paper and installed new 30 Felt and Tin-Cap the same day. The home was left water tight while awaiting Tin-Cap & Shingle-In-Progress inspection. After passing these inspections the new dimensional shingle was installed and final inspection was called. All debris from the job were hauled away and disposed of as with all of our roof replacement projects.

The gallery below shows before, during and after photos of the new dimensional shingle roof installation.
