Residential Roof Replacement

Replacing your roof is a big investment, which is why you want to choose a reliable team to get the job done.

Above all, we want our clients to have the peace of mind that their new roof will be high quality and energy efficient.

Are you wondering what a roofing replacement in Orlando FL might entail? Here’s a quick summary:

  • Removal of the Existing Roofing Materials: Rather than installing shingles over the existing roof covering (whether it’s slate, tile or shingle), Gold Key Roofing follows the standards set by manufacturers and removes the pre-existing materials down to the plywood. At this time, our experts make sure to remove the old flashing in order to check for damaged or rotting sections of wood which may need to be replaced or restored.

  • Installation: This step is specialized for each home in regards to materials and extra features; the most general installations include the placement of the underlying material, ice/water shield, and new roofing materials.


To maintain their long-lasting beauty, the weight of tile is important because it provides enduring protection without developing problems like other roofing materials. Most homes built today are strong enough to support the weight of a tile roof. There are also varieties of lightweight tile offered in certain regions of the country that are ideal for new and re-roofing projects. Tile is fast becoming the re-roofing product of choice due not only to its durability but also to its ease of maintenance. Single tiles are much easier to repair than other roofing materials.

Can Sustain High Winds

Due to its resistance to severe weather, concrete and clay tiles continue to be the preferred roofing material among homeowners in areas with hurricane activity or frequent wind and hail storms like we have here in many parts of Texas. With proper installation, tile roofing is one of a few select roofing systems that is proven to withstand sustained winds of 150 miles per hour.

Economical

Clay and concrete tile roofs are one of the most cost-effective choices due to their long lifespan—50 to 100 years or more. Both concrete and clay tile outlast other roofing materials, with manufacturers offering warranties from 50 years to the life of the structure. In fact, in Asia and Europe, many structures with clay roof tiles have remained intact, functional and beautiful for centuries.

Requires Limited Maintenance

All roofing systems require some maintenance, but under normal conditions here in Florida, tile roofs require minimal maintenance. With tile, maintenance is restricted to gutters, protrusion flashings, and venting. With other roofing systems, maintenance may include coating, painting, cleaning, and/or sealing the majority of the roof surface.
