South Florida Shingle Roofs

South Florida shingle roof replacement services

Shingle roofs are special covering materials that are made from individual overlapping elements. Their shape is rectangular and flat which allows for a bottom-to-top layout with overlapping joints. Shingle roofs are the most popular choice in the country with an overwhelming coverage of 75% of all houses in North America. The predominance in the South Florida region is even greater due to their versatility, UV protection and low-cost factors.
