• Save money on your monthly power bill
• Save money on the replacement, maintenance or repair of your A/C equipment

Tile Roof Replacement
Tile roofs resist hurricanes, earthquakes and weather extremes better than most other materials. Concrete and clay roof tiles are especially resistant to fire, hail and moisture.
They act as insulators, reducing energy costs by keeping homes warmer in winter and cooler in summer. Because tile is inherently durable, tile roofs can last much longer than shingle roofs.
Concrete and clay tiles account for the largest share in roofing sales worldwide and are utilized on more homes than any other type of roof. Roofing tiles are the only materials currently in use that possess two inherent qualities necessary for energy reduction:
• The natural thermal resistance in the raw materials themselves
• The natural ventilation created in the airspace around the tiles
These elements work together to create an effective heat barrier. Federal tax credits may be available to you for using concrete and clay roofing tiles. They can also add significant resale value to your home.

Shingle Roof Replacement
Although homeowners may select the type of roofing they desire for their home, they typically leave the brand up to the roofer, and that may not be in your best interest. Even experienced roofers judge the quality of the various shingle brands by two seemingly sensible (but not always reliable) criteria: weight and warranty.
Warranties on asphalt shingles typically run from about 20 to 40 years. That sounds better than it really is. The warranty usually covers both materials and labor for only the first year. After the first year, the cost of labor will most likely be excluded, and the cost of the shingle material is prorated, sharply reducing the warranty’s payback as time goes on.
Most asphalt shingles need to be replaced every 15 or 20 years due to wind, rain, temperature extremes and sunlight, which can crack, curl, and split the shingles. The granules can also erode, allowing the fiberglass to show. Storm Roofing only uses GAF shingles on replacement projects. They cost slightly more but hold up better in the Florida sun than almost any other shingle.
Flat Roof Replacement
TPO & Modified Bitumen Roofing for flat roofs
Storm Roofing & Repair offers flat roofing options to commercial and residential customers throughout Sarasota and Manatee counties. The type of flat roofing we install is somewhat arbitrary and up to you in most instances. However, there are a few options that could be better suited to certain seasons, climates or budgets. There are three basic types of flat roofing:
Thermoplastic Polyolefin is a single-ply roofing membrane that lasts 5+ years longer than other flat roof materials. TPO is replacing modified bitumen in residential flat roofs because of its longer life. It is one of the fastest growing commercial roof applications. TPO systems are made up of a single layer of synthetics and reinforcing scrim that can be used to cover flat roofs.
TPO membranes are manufactured in sheets that are 10, 12 or 20 feet wide and 50 to 100 feet long. Modified bitumen materials are 3 feet wide and 33 feet long, so TPO roofs offer less seams that can leak. TPO is bright white and has gained industry acceptance with its natural reflective surface to reflect UV rays (as reported by the National Roofing Contractors Association [NRCA]).
This type of flat roof involves taking a roll of single-ply roofing material that has been integrated with a mineral-based shield and attaching it to the roof surface in a peel and stick application. Modified Bitumen is commonly used for residential and commercial flat roofs where size, cost, aesthetics and UV protection are not as important.
There are two options for the material used:
• The traditional torch-down adhesive that must be heated by a torch to adhere to the roof substrate
• The newer Peel-and-Stick flat roofing material that requires no torch and is much easier to apply
