When the time came to replace their roof, the owners of this Palmetto Bay home decided to upgrade to a galvalume standing seam roof (aka metal roof). The new galvalume roof has a life expectancy of 45 Years, 150% longer than a tile roof. Of course, the cost is about 150% more as well. This project consisted of replacing the pitched and flat roof on the main structure as well as the pitched roof on the detached garage.
Once the old tile was removed and the decking re-nailed to Florida Building Code, a VersaShield® Fire Protection Barrier was installed. Then came the installation of the 24 GA galvalume metal roof giving the main residence & detached garage matching modern roofs.
Below is a gallery showing the installation process of the standing seam roof & flat roof.
