Call us, make an appointment, we visit your home and access the roof. Next we present the options available and estimate the costs. Finally, you give us the green light and we begin work.

No, we do find roofs that still have life in them, with the exception of one or two areas leading to leaks. We will identify the areas that require repair and give an estimate to make the repairs.

Once you’ve chosen materials and colors, assuming the product is available, we can be done in a matter of weeks. We will clearly communicate the schedule and expectations so that when we leave we can add you to our referral program.

There are several variables to consider when replacing your roof. The type and quality of roofing material is a major factor, the building codes in the area you live may require extra steps to meet the variable weather conditions, and the availability of the product you ultimately choose could cause a fluctuation in cost. First step is measuring your roof. Roofers use a “Square” measurement which is 10′ x 10′, so a 2000 sq ft home would be roughly 20 squares, if the cost to replace your roof is $400 a square it would be $8,000. However, it is not as simple as using the sq ft of your home as it is stated on your home plans, because roofs have overhangs and are pitched. For example if you fold a piece of paper in half and stand it on its ends, it will take up far less space than when the paper is flattened out. Depending on the pitch of your roof you could increase the “squares” by as much as 50%. Another important factor is “waste”, it is unlikely that the roofing material measurements will coincide exactly to your roof measurements so there is a waste cost, often 10% to 15%. G & A Certified South Roofing provides free roof estimates that include material and labor costs. Rather than guessing or using unreliable math, we recommend calling a reputable roofing company like G & A Certified South Roofing to provide an estimate free of charge.

The cheapest roof option is asphalt shingles, at least up front cost. And there are variable qualities of asphalt shingles even with the same manufacturer. For example Owens Corning has 6 quality options of shingle including Supreme (lowest least expensive), Oakridge, Duration, Duration Designer, Duration Flex, and Berkshire (they’re most expensive ). There are also different quality underlayment that can reduce the cost of a new roof, but you will sacrifice longevity and moisture protection with a lower quality underlayment. If your budget permits, and your HOA allows it, metal and tile roofs can double or triple the time in which you would normally have to replace an asphalt shingle roof. Typically, just under double the cost, in the long run these roofing options end up being far less expensive. G & A Certified South Roofing provides free consultations and quotes, we will review all of your options with you and help determine the most affordable option for your situation. G & A Certified South Roofing is Central Florida’s #1 Roofing company for service and warranty.
