Default S.Florida roof replacement costs. Broward County

Starting the process of a new roof for the house. Need to chose between concrete tile or metal roofing. Like both but have no idea if the costs are simular or a.drastic difference.

leaning towards metal roofing if costs are compatible.

if you go metal, ask about getting a foam board insulation between metal and felt. Heat xfer is high. Everyone thinks a metal roof will reflect away the solar rays, and it does---just not all of it.

If you go metal use standing seam you will have no exposed screws. A tile roof is more than metal. Either product make sure you find a company that specializes in installing the product and review their work.

Metal done properly is the way to go. Look into a booster in the house as cell coverage inside will be reduced.

Some roofs truss systems were designed to have the weight of a tile roof help hold the roof down. Some municipalities may require an engineering analysis to determine if the strapping to the trusses is adequate to retain a light weight metal roof.

Metal roof have proven to be much more wind resistant, though.

When I redid my tile roof a couple of years ago, metal was about 25-35% more, maybe a little more. I have a friend who specializes in metal roofs and can get his number. Guy who did my roof was FANTASTIC, was recommended by my cousin a GC. Adrian 954-464-4032

I just had my flat concrete tile roof redone in WPB by ROOFOREVER LLC
They were very reasonable and did an outstanding job on both my house and my brother in laws. Call Francisco if you are interested in getting a quote. His office is in Broward County.

Wouldn't any roof replacement require re-strapping to current wind codes in Florida?

When I was pricing the roof job, metal roof place offered some references of recent jobs, I went to one address and it looked fantastic. Owner saw me by the gate, came out, said they were done in 3 days, to the tune of $52 grand. Guestimate of mine is that was approx 50 squares between the main house roof and large garage roof. It looked great, but damn

No it requires a re-nail of sheathing to current code requirements.

Standing seam galvalume 26 gauge is about $650-800 per square. You are looking at about 40-50 grand depending on some adders. My roof is 52 squares and the detached garage another 20 square. $$$$$$$.....Its the product used and installation details that make a metal roof. Anyone that says they complete it quickly send them away.

It kind of comes down the price difference vs. what the cost is. 10% difference or is it more like 30% difference. Getting some real quotes over the next few days, so I'll be able to give people some updated numbers.

Not yet..seems some areas are more aggressive in their uplift calculations, in my experience.

That's universally required. Uplift is a structural issue.

MC, thoroughly vet your contractor. If you are not completely comfortable with an individual or company, do yourself a favor and go with the next guy. Once decided and contract is executed, you will need to work closely with him. As to mitigation, The Florida Building Code, Residential sections 706.7 & 706.8 lists the requirements you will need to comply with. Regarding the issue of metal vs tile, they are both time proven system that work well if installed correctly. So go with the on you and your significant other likes the most. Regrettably with the escalating roofing cost of today, it is best to pick the one you are really in love with. Good luck!!!

I replaced my old shingle roof with a standing seam galvalume last july. Total cost for a 2500sf house plus a flat roof in the back was just under 35k. The roof looks awesome except for a couple of sections in the front that have a wavey look to them for some reason. I got multiple quotes from different companies for shingle, tile and metal and the average price diff between each was about 5 grand.

Oh my gosh things have changed.
I did my roof with 26g 5v metal 14 years ago
i only paid for materials and installed myself.
I think I had @$5500 in it.
2300 sf house with high pitches

Holy crap $35-50k for a roof today!!!

BUT, when Charlie hit my moms place on Pine Island and we went down to help her clear/clean up.
You know what roof we saw more of?
Metal.
Shingles were gone
Tile had some home with some left on. I think I saw one with minimal damage
Metal roofs were least impacted

i saw this throughout punta gorda etc.

even aerial pics from micheal in the panhandle showed Metal was superior.

I plan on staying in this home for retirement so it was worth the cost to me

it appears the cost difference is 15% to 20% more for metal standing seam vs. concrete tile.
