Default Venice area roofers

Thinking of a new roof for home being purchased in Venice area.

Is ribbed aluminum a good choice? What are most people doing for replacementsof 20 to 30 year old concrete tiles?

Any suggestions for reliable and reasonable roofing companies?

Thanks for any replies.

A-1 Aluminum is a good one down in Lee County. I'm sure they'll travel. Ribbed aluminum is a good choice. Even a 5V crimp galvanized roof will last 40 years down here. I've got a 5V crimp galvanized roof. It's got the secondary water barrier underneath. I'm very satisfied with it.

Though now I can't even find them. I'd say go on Angie's list, pay the small subscription fee, and see whose out there. Choose three good ones, get three quotes, and pick the quote you like the most.

I like Watertite Roofing in Nokomis. They have been around a long time and do excellent work. Their # is 941-483-4630. They were referred to me by two different general contractors and I am very happy with their work.

In what area of Osprey is your house located-- is there a home owners assn.?
The reason I ask is some assn have roofing material restrictions.
I used Shewski not the cheapest but good.

No roofs are "aluminum" anymore. 5V is usually "Galvalume" which is an aluminized galvanized sheet. Better yet is "acrylume", the same as galvalume with an acrylic coating to protect the metal from blackening during handling. 26g is the minimum thickness. A secondary water barrier is now required by code.

Be careful using 5V if your roof is really "cut up".

If your roof was designed for a heavyweight material such as tile, the structure may require additional strapping and anchors to compensate for the reduction in deadweight to prevent uplift.
