Shingle Roof Repair
Shingle roofing and shingle repair are the most common type of projects we work on because of its efficient and versatile characteristics as a reliable roofing product. Roof shingles also work well on steep sloping roofs, they are weather resistant and durable enough to last for years to come. When constructing roof replacement using a shingled roof, asphalt shingles are the most common used because they are compatible with almost any roof and are easy to cut to size. However, other materials can be used depending on your needs and budget.
Most asphalt shingle roofs are reinforced by a fiberglass material to make the shingle replacement process extra durable. The fiberglass reinforcement is fire and tear resistant and tends to be affordably priced.

Their resistance to rain and rot makes them an ideal choice for shingle replacement against the intense Tampa Bay thunderstorms.
Clay and Concrete Shingles
Clay or concrete shingles are molded into barrel shaped shingles most commonly seen on Spanish style homes in NPR. They are non-combustible, don’t fade and can offer home cooling features. It is important to note that due to the weight of clay or concrete shingles, before a shingle replacement can take place, a structural engineer would be required to assess whether the foundation of the roof can support those type of shingles before installation. While the lifespan of these shingles can be enjoyed up to 50 years, they also come with a higher price tag.

New Port Richey Roofing focuses closely on ventilation, as well as flashing detail, which is highly noticeable if done incorrectly. We want your home to be noticed, but only for the right reasons!

Once a job site is cleaned up, we perform an inspection to check that each step of the installation was done properly, and to make sure that it meets the requirements of local code authorities. After that, we schedule a final meeting with you to get your complete satisfaction.
