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.
