Below is a gallery showing the flat roof tile installation process at a Westchester residence in Miami-Dade. The roof tile installed was supplied by Eagle Roofing Products and it is their Bel Air Floridian Blend.
This 6,300 sq ft tile roof had several repair jobs by the homeowners to extend the life of their roof. They contacted us for a complete roof replacement and chose to go with a flat cement roof tile instead of the existing double roll cement roof tile. The gallery below shows a satellite rendering of the roof facets along with before and after photos of the completed roof replacement.
This nice cottage home was in need of a new roof after several patch jobs and a huge leak in the middle of the dining room. The home was located in Southwest Ranches, just west of Davie, FL. The homeowner chose an architectural shingle (a.k.a. dimensional shingle), similar to the one previously installed, giving the home a fresh new look and a nice texture to their roof with the architectural shingles.
This roof job consisted of removing the old gravel roof and replacing it with 2200 sq ft of a Flat Roof with minor decking repairs.
Below is a gallery of a small new roof on a townhouse in Margate. The homeowners had applied a sealer over the existing shingles in an effort to stop the leaks, but eventually had to replace the entire roof. Once we received HOA approval on shingle style & color, the roof was simple and quick, leaving the homeowners very satisfied.
This shingle roof in Ft Lauderdale was a little long-in-the-tooth by the time the homeowners gave Rausa Builders Corp. a call, but we were able to keep costs down and acquire another satisfied customer! The roof was a simple shingle to shingle replacement with a flat roof area over the terrace.
Below are photos of a 3400 sq ft Architectural Shingle Roof we just completed in the Kendall Area. The home had an atrium in the center with an opening all the way through the roof that the homeowner wanted sealed off with future plans of adding the area as living space below. Once the atrium was sealed, the pool was covered with plastic to keep any roofing debris from landing inside and we began to remove the old shingle roof.
There was minor decking and fascia damage that need to be replaced prior to 30 Felt and Tin Cap being installed. Finally the new architectural shingle was installed giving the new roof a nice texture over it’s large planes.
The homeowners of this 1965 home in Lauderdale Lakes needed a new roof. They decided on the more economical option, which was to replace their Flat Tile Roof with a 3-Tab Shingle Roof. A great choice as long as your community (local HOA or City) allows shingle roofs. It’s always a good idea to check with them because they may require a certain type of roof or color, etc.
We assured the homeowners that Tiles are only “Decorative” and explained that what makes your home water-tight is the roofing paper underneath. The roof was in pretty bad shape, requiring rotted decking & fascia replacement. The gallery below shows step-by-step photos of the roof replacement process.
The gallery below shows the process of removing a shingle roof and replacing it with Galvalume Standing Seam Metal Roof. This roof is located in West Miami, the color chosen by the homeowner was bronze.
After the old shingle roof was removed, all rotted decking/sheathing was replaced. Unique to the metal roof installation process is the use of VersaShield, which acts as a fire barrier and insulation. Once the VersaShield is installed, the standard 30 Felt Roofing Paper with Tin-Cap is next, followed by the installation of the Englert 24 GA Galvalume Standing Seam Metal Roof.
