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.

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!

Summer FamilyWelcome to summer—Time for fun in the sun!!! We love it too, but it does have its downsides. Here in Florida, summer is also our rainy season. With all of the rain heading our way, inspecting your home to prevent damage is a must! It’s not just the moisture we’re worried about. Yes you guessed it… It’s also time for those pesky insects to start making their way into our homes. Here are some easy things to check off your list to ensure that your home is summer ready!

1. Inspect wood structures– Be sure to inspect all wooden structures of your home. This includes the inside and outside of your house. Check for any rotting or damaged wood. Anything of this nature should be assessed quickly so that the damages do not worsen.

2. Check for termites– Termites can cause major damage before you even realize you have them. However,  if you are annually checking for them, then you should be able to prevent these suckers from doing any major damage. They eat wood from the inside out, so it is hard to detect them unless you know what to look for. Check your window sills for small buncheGuy Caulkings of them and look around for encrusted mud tubes or dirt in or around small holes and cracks.

3. Prepare for hurricanes– We haven’t had a real hurricane in a while, but this does not predict that we won’t experience any in the near future. Check your home’s hurricane resistant features including things like shutters and windows. Be sure to caulk and weatherstrip windows and doors. Don’t forget to trim any tree limbs that are capable of falling onto your roof.

4. Pest control– If you were worried about pests getting in, well now is the time for them to do so. Make sure you are ahead of them by spraying inside and outside. Sealing your windows and doors will also help with this issue.

Thank you for reading and have a wonderful season!

At ONEWAY ROOFING, our goal is to achieve peace of mind for all of our customers. Part of that mission is helping you understand the steps to maintain your roof. Roof maintenance tips aren’t always just about the simple routine inspections. Here are a couple things to watch out for during the upkeep of your roof.mike roof photo

Roof maintenance is absolutely necessary. By upkeeping your roof, you can prevent major costs down the road. When performing maintenance checks, it is important to make sure that you check for cracked, missing, loose or damaged tiles and shingles. Your gutters should also be cleaned regularly. In Florida we experience a heavy amount of rainfall. As a result, a lot of debris is trapped in this area.

Gutters are a vital part of your roof. If the issue is not assessed, the water can back up and eventually cause mold, mildew and other roof related issues. Since we do experience rainfall all year round, branches and rubbish might fall onto your roof. It is a good idea to just remove any of this to avoid things like unwanted growth and moisture.

Keeping your roof clean is another way to help your roof last longer. Pressure washing is an option but should only be done by a professional and someone who is experienced in the roofing industry. Pressure washing your roof can cause damage and even force water underneath the shingles if the process is not done properly. Some cleaning solutions can also cause damage to the roof and even run off into the grass and kill plant life! Walking on a wet roof can also be very dangerous. Remember, safety always comes first!

Your roof is one of the most important pieces of your home and damages to it can cause everything under it to suffer. We would like to help you maintain its foundation and durability by introducing you to a process called Roof Coating!

roof-coating

In Florida, your roof takes on a ton because of the harsh sunlight and almost constant rain. The sunlight exposure causes your roof to become oxidized and results in chemical breakdown which weakens the roof. Rain and moisture can also cause corrosion over time.109705b

Roof Coating can be done at anytime and can transform an old roof into a newer looking roof for a smaller cost. With the cost being reasonable for this application, the cost for your electric bill in the summer will reduce itself as well. The coating is designed to allow your roof to reflect more of the harmful rays rather than absorbing the heat, causing your a/c to put out less energy. This is a second layer that will act both as ultra violet and water proof.

For your advantage, we use Roof Masters of Palm Beach for this process. Roof Masters is a Chemical Roof and Pressure Cleaning business that serves areas of Palm Beach and Martin Counties. They are the oldest Chem-Wash company in the southeast and have been in business since 1998 with 18 years of experience. Here at ONEWAY ROOFING we are dedicated to serving our customers and we would only recommend the best.

As the roof gets dirty due to mold, dust and tree sap, it requires cleaning. Cleaning a roof is not an easy job as it involves safety hazards. That is why it is advised by the best roofing contractors in West Palm Beach and Jupiter area to hire a professional company to perform the job. Still if you are thinking to take the risk, make sure you take the following safety measures:

  • Use a sturdy ladder to climb up safely to the roof top. Note that the tiles or shingles will become extremely slippery when wet thus it may be necessary to use a harness.
  • It will be a good idea to wear boots with non skid soles in order to avoid slippage.
  • Tie garbage bags on all down spouts so that the chemical does not spill over the surrounding areas. Gather all the tools that you need to successfully accomplish the job.
  • In order to protect your eyes and hands from coming in contact with the chemical solution, wear protective goggles and heavy rubber gloves.
  • Prepare the solution in a large bucket and use a garden hose to spray it all over the surface. Make sure that the areas that look most dirty receive special attention.
  • Scrub the surface gently.
  • Be sure to rinse off the downspouts and the gutters in order to remove the corrosive cleaning solution from the metal.
