Roofing FAQs

Signs that indicate you may need a new roof in Florida include missing or damaged shingles, sagging areas, and visible signs of aging or wear.

The choice of roofing materials depends on various factors, including your budget, desired aesthetics, and the specific climate. Common roofing materials in Florida include asphalt shingles, metal roofing, concrete or clay tiles, and flat roofing membranes.

The lifespan of a roof can vary depending on the material used, weather conditions, maintenance, and other factors. In Florida, where roofs are exposed to intense sunlight, high humidity, and occasional severe weather events, the average lifespan of a roof can range from 15 to 30 years.

In Florida, the most common roofing style is the pitched or sloped roof, often characterized by multiple gables and slopes. This style is prevalent due to its ability to efficiently shed rainwater during frequent rainstorms and provide better ventilation.

The cost of a new roof depends on various factors, such as the size and complexity of the roof, the choice of materials, the location, and any additional features or services required. In Florida, the average cost for a new roof installation can range from $5,000 to $20,000 or more.

Truvorne works with the Alys Beach community to provide homeowners with the best price on a new roof or roofing replacements that follow their requirements.

Replacing your roof before listing your home can be a wise decision if you’ve noticed any deterioration or other flaws. A new roof enhances the curb appeal and overall value of your property, making it more attractive to potential buyers.

Additionally, getting a new roof built by Truvorne can provide peace of mind to buyers by assuring them that they won’t need to invest in a new roof shortly after purchasing the home.

The best time to replace a roof in Florida is during the dry season, which typically falls between November and April. This period offers more stable weather conditions with lower chances of rain, hurricanes, or extreme heat, allowing for smoother and faster roof installation.

Truvorne considers this their busy season, so it’s best to schedule far in advance if you intend to replace your roof during this time of the year. We work with Alys Beach to make sure your roof meets the requirements and standards set by the community.

Simply, no, it’s not usually recommended for homeowners to attempt replacing their roof on their own. Replacing a roof is a complex and dangerous task that requires specific skills, experience, and equipment — all of which the roofers at Truvorne have.

Improper installation can lead to costly damage and safety hazards and could violate the Alys Beach community homeowner rules and regulations. By hiring professional and experienced roofers from Truvorne, you know they will have the necessary licenses and insurance to protect you and your property during the process.
