Have you ever had a regretful experience with a contractor who did work on your home? Hopefully not—but those of you who have, know that it is very upsetting. Here are a few tips on how to find the right roofing contractor for your home:Roofer

  1. License and Insurance- Always make sure that the company you’re working with is licensed and insured. A reputable company will provide proof of license and insurance documents upon request. It is equally important that all of these are up to date. For example, our documents are posted here on our website for you to view.
  2. Pricing- Don’t choose your contractor just because the price is unbeatable. Any company that has overhead and proper insurance, has to price accordingly to cover these costs. You get what you pay for and you may end up paying more later if the job isn’t done correctly.
  3. Job Details- Always make sure that you receive a written estimate before work is started. The estimate should list all job details and pricing for you to sign off on. At ONEWAY ROOFING, every customer receives a FREE estimate.
  4. Research- Always do your research when choosing a Roofer. Make sure they have multiple worthy reviews and have satisfactory ratings with the Better Business Bureau.

Your money and time is valuable, so don’t give it to a company who doesn’t think so.

Should Hurricane Matthew hit Palm Beach, then ONEWAY ROOFING should be your first call. Here is why:

1. We need to install a tarp. Your roof is the most important part of your home. It protects your family, your home structure, your furniture, and all your valuables. Installing a tarp is the first step of protection after the storm.

2. Your roof needs an inspection immediately following a storm. Whether Hurricane Matthew decides to hit head-on or not, the strong winds can cause significant damage to your roof.

3. You need to report any damage to your insurance carrier immediately following an inspection. The good news is…

4. We are insurance experts. Our owners, Mike Poole and Tony Lanzone, came to South Florida after Hurricane Charlie. They were originally “storm chasers” from the Midwest who wanted to help in the storm crisis of 2004. Hurricane Charlie was followed by Francis and Gene. Do you remember the damage those CAT 2 hurricanes caused back then? Mike and Tony have been handling insurance claims for roofing damage for over twenty years. Mike fell in love with beautiful Palm Beach and refused to go back to the Midwest. So, he moved his family and launched ONEWAY ROOFING.

5. Both Mike and Tony are passionate about helping families in their time of need and have fully trained their staff to handle crisis situations when it comes to the most important part of a home: the roof.

Remember to secure any lose objects outside your home that could be carried off by heavy winds.

If you are planning to stay in South Florida over the next few days, then your roof is the physical object that is going to protect your family and your home during this storm. It is always wise to take care of it so that it can take care of you. This is why we are always stressing to our customers about the importance of roof maintenance.

If your roof is currently leaking, then now is the time to have a temporary repair done to prevent further damage. We are pausing all roof replacement jobs and major repairs until after the weather clears, but we are offering temporary repairs services right now.

It’s already that time of year again… Welcome to fall! Besides the joy this season brings, Fall is also an important time for roof maintenance. Here are some tips that you may findunnamed helpful in the upkeep of your roof.

  1. Clean Gutters– Gutter cleaning is a must, especially this time of year. It’s important to keep the debris cleared out of your gutters to ensure that water can flow through them properly. Water that continuously flows onto your roof can cause mold, cracking and other more extensive damage to both your gutters and the roof itself.
  2. Trim Trees– If your trees are trimmed back, less rubbish will fall onto your roof. Too many leaves and branches on your roof can cause moisture buildup which can lead to more roof related issues like mold.
  3. Gutter Guards– Gutter Guards are caps that  keep debris from getting in. They go over the gutters so that only water can enter. This option will save you a lot of time and possibly money in the long run.
  4. Assess Needed Repairs– If your gutters are cracked or loose, it is important to get these fixed to ensure that they are working properly. When the water does not flow correctly, it will run down the side of your home, eventually leaving unsightly staining.playing in leaves

Remember to always practice safety when you are performing tasks on or near your roof. Feel free to contact ONEWAY ROOFING with any questions or concerns about your roof. Thanks for reading and have a wonderful season!

As you may have heard us say plenty of times, your roof is by far one of your most important aspects to your home– so we will continue to educate you on how to take care of it. No one likes spending money and that’s a great reason to take good care of your roof. You don’t want to pay for extra damage in the long run. That being said, we would like to bring up a new subject that you Roofermay have thought about yourself. Can you repair your own roof? We highly advise you not to and here’s why!

We’ll start out by mentioning that roofing is intense, hot and hard work. But more important than the hard labor, you might even damage your roof further. If you don’t know what you’re doing, just walking on your roof can cause damage to shingles or tiles. If you don’t take things like proper ventilation into consideration, you can cause your roof to start leaking. When your roof doesn’t have the right ventilation, this cause your attic to draw in moisture.

DangerAlso, how do you know if your roof doesn’t have more extensive damage than you think? Did you know that by the time you actually notice the leaking on your ceiling, the damage could be far worse than you think. If this isn’t fixed the right way, you could end up having to pay a roofer down the road for way more than you would have if you would’ve brought the smaller leak to their attention.

Our roofers wear special equipment while they work to ensure their safety. If you are repairing your roof without this safety gear, then you are in danger. This could raise the price that you originally intended to pay as well. We know that you don’t have any intentions of attending the ER anytime in the near future over a roof repair.

Our point is, if you try to repair your roof yourself then it can most definitely cause more damage and is hazardous. If you need your roof repaired then give an experienced roofing company a call and ask for an estimate. Here at ONEWAY, they’re free for your convenience!

Florida’s climate is different from most states. In this season we are feeling the full effects of Florida’s hot and humid weather. One of our goals as Florida residents is to make sure that our home living is not affected by it. We would like to give you some insite on how these different roofing materials stand up to each other, while keeping our climate in mind.dreamstime_xl_7355225

Shingles are one of the most common types of roofing material. About 80% of the residential roofs here in america, are covered with them. They are inexpensive and add an attractive appearance to a home, which is a great combination. Asphalt shingles contain minerals that resist against algae and other staining. Over time these minerals can wear away but there is an option to have your roof clean by a professional. Shingles are a good fire resisting material with a moderate wind resistance. These type of roofs typically last around 15 to 20 years.

Concrete tiles are another type of roofing material that appeal to many homeowners.  They come in a wide variety of colors and can be made to resemble other tiles like clay or slate. This is great since it makes the reroofing process cheaper! These type of roofs can last around 25 to 30 years if they are taken care of properly. They generally require low maintenance but walking on a tile roof the right way is vital since the tiles havdreamstime_xl_5588002e the potential to crack. Just like shingles, tiles are also fire resistant and do great in warmer climates like ours. In colder climates the tiles are susceptible to shattering due to the freezing and thawing cycles.

Another type of material used for roofs is metal, which can be made to resemble other materials as well. Metal roofs have a good resistance to both fire and wind which contributes to their lifespan of up to 50 years! This material also does well with both low and steep roofs whereas the other types of roofing material are better for a steeper sloped roof. Another upside to using metal is that it absorbs little heat (about a third less than asphalt). This is great for keeping your cooling costs down. Metal is on the more expensive side of the spectrum compared to other roofing materials. However, with the lower maintenance, high resistance to damage, and long lifespan — the cost seems to pay off in the long run!
