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.
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 have 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!

ONEWAY ROOFING has come a long way in serving our community. Because of our faithful and valuable customers, we have continued to grow our company. We are so grateful to announce that residents of Palm Beach are increasingly reaching out to us for estimates daily. Since our customer demand is growing, we have set a goal to add five new estimators and ten new roofers to our team by the end of 2017. I would love to share with you just a few of the advantages to working with and for ONEWAY.
Our Estimators or Sales Representatives are those who help each customer through the process of selecting a roof for their home or helping determine the right repair needed for the most reasonable price. There are many advantages to being an estimator for ONEWAY. The obvious advantage is that our Estimators have no ceiling when it comes to earnings. These earnings grow as the company experiences more and more growth. Another highly sought after advantage of working in our sales departments is the flexibility of our scheduling platform, which allows for quality time with family or extra working hours as needed. Our top reps have built long lasting relationships with many of our customers and that has resulted in much success for both them and our company!
Along with our sales department, our roofers are an important asset to ONEWAY. While we are bringing on new team members, we would also like to expand our crew. There are many advantages to working on the ONEWAY crew. Our crew’s safety is of the utmost importance and we assist each team member with obtaining OSHA certification. Our roofers are accompanied by a material runner who brings materials to the job site, thus allowing our projects to run smoother and without delay. We also supply our crew with any and all tools necessary to complete the job efficiently and effectively. Our stocked warehouse allows for easy transitions between jobs and working days.We take great pride in our workmanship, therefore we ensure that each team member is properly trained and certified to install the materials used for each type of project. With all the material and safety training, tool supply, and family-like atmosphere, our roofers are some of the happiest in South Florida!
Just as we value our customers, we value our employees and we like to make sure that each team member is genuinely happy. We consider every single team member as family. Whether in sales, on our crew, or working in the office, the ONEWAY employees are apart of a bigger project… loving on our Palm Beach community. We keep God first, Employees second, and Customers third. With our priorities in that order, we feel that we can achieve much more success in years to come. So, please… join our amazing team!
