Best Roof Repair Contractors in Florida

Why Roof Repairs Are Crucial

There’s nothing more important in life than having a roof over your head. And means to cover life expenses. Such expenses call for repairing your assets. Roof repairs, for example.
If you own a house, you most certainly will have to prepare yourself for finding a competent roofing company you can rely on in case of harsh weather conditions.
No roof is immune to problems that come with wear and tear.
Speaking of wear and tear, we’ve seen numerous times how angry and disappointed people get when they realize the insurance company won’t cover their roofing expenses. Almost every insurance policy says that it doesn’t cover wear and tear! That’s why you have to pay extra attention to your roof’s quality.
But sometimes things are beyond your control. Like the weather in Florida.
Extreme weather such as tornadoes, hail, snow, seasonal freezes, and downed trees can cause substantial damage to your roof.

Chapelle Roofing LLC Ensures the Safety of Its Roofers

All of our roof contractors are trained in proper safety techniques.
Be it climbing a ladder, repairing a leak or design flaw, installing shingles, or installing metal roofing, our trained staff carry out their task with complete safety.

Our roofers work hard in the Florida heat, and we do everything we can to be by their side, preventing them from sustaining injuries while performing roof repairs.
Preventions such as always making sure that there are enough ladders and scaffolding for the roof job and that they’re all safe to use.

We install various types of roofs, each of which has distinct advantages in Florida’s hot climate:

Shingle Roofs
Clay Tile Roofs
Concrete Tile Roofs
Metal Roofing
Whatever the cause may be remember it is only a temporary solution. You will eventually need to get a roofing contractor to do the permanent repairs.

When to Contact a Roofing Company Without Delay

Here are the signs that point to the necessity of hiring an experienced roofer:

They can compromise the structure of the building and threaten to destroy the equipment inside your house (including water leaks in your attic). A temporary solution that many homeowners opt for is installing a roof tarp.

Whether entire sections of shingles are missing or damaged, or you’re starting to see cupping (shingles lifting up in the middle) or curling (shingles lifting in the corners), water damage isn’t far off. You’ll definitely need a roofing contractor to perform a detailed roof inspection.

When asphalt shingles start to wear out, granules fall off and often collect in your gutters. With time, the gradual loss of granules will affect the roof’s lifespan. If you notice this, it may be time to get a roof inspection and probably a roof replacement.

Damaged flashing is practically a leaking problem waiting to happen. Flashing is one of the most vulnerable parts of your roof. It is made of metal strips linked to all roof seams and edges. If your flashing is bent or cracked, it creates leaks and allows moisture to travel inside the roof seams. The moisture can affect areas on the roof far from the entry point, making the process of identifying the leaks complicated.

Gutters and downspouts are essential to a roof’s rain drainage system. That’s why checking them is also part of the roof inspection before buying a new house. If you notice that they are damaged or clogged, you must deal with them immediately. Gutters must be clear and without any sign of wear so they can adequately do their function and protect your home from leakage and moisture issues.

This one is a little more difficult to detect since there are so many factors (usage, company raising rates, etc.). But if you’re starting to see an increase in your electricity bill, poor ventilation could be the cause.

These are all serious signs towards making the necessary move – contacting a roofing company that will know how to solve your headache and make any new roofing services redundant thanks to their thorough servicing ability.

Step-by-Step Guide to Shingle, Metal, and Tile Roofing

If you are a new homeowner and this is your first time scheduling a roof repair or replacement, read the below step-by-step guide we’ve curated for you for a smooth and unmatched roofing experience!

Chappelle Roofing LLC has proudly been serving Florida and Ohio residents and business owners since 2012, with our workers’ combined experience spanning over 200+ years. Don’t hesitate to reach out for unparalleled services in the roofing industry today!

No matter where you’re from or what type of roof you’d like to go with, the initial process is generally the same for everyone. Let’s take a look at what that entails!

The client contacts the roofing company to request a quote or assess the need for replacing or repairing their roof. The sales agent schedules a meeting with the client to inspect the roof and discuss available options.

The sales agent conducts a detailed roof inspection to assess the scope of necessary work. The client is supplied with a detailed quote that includes the estimated cost for materials, labor, permits, and any additional necessary work.

Once the client reviews the quote and agrees, a contract is signed outlining the terms and conditions of the service.

The client has to make an initial payment to secure the roofing company’s services.

Chappelle Roofing LLC takes care of obtaining all necessary permits for roof replacements. Specific requirements may vary depending on local jurisdiction.

Until the work has been completed by Chappelle Roofing LLC and a final inspection approval has been received by the issuing agency, the client should not remove the permit on the outside of their home. A Regular Tag Fee (fine) of up to $200.00 could be placed.

All homeowners are responsible for obtaining approval from their community’s HOA. Chappelle Roofing can help the client write a sample letter should they need it.

All required documentation is prepared in compliance with local regulations and building codes.

Great – you’ve got your roof inspection done by a reliable adjuster and a contract has been signed and sealed. All the i’s have been dotted and your t’s crossed on the necessary documentation, and you’ve even put down your first payment. It’s time for the pros to climb on and get your home roof-ready!

Before the installation begins, the site needs to be prepared. This may include protecting surrounding areas, removing old materials, and preparing the surface of the roof.

Once done, the workers will measure and cut the roof sheathing to the correct size and begin work.

Let’s take a look at what you can expect from the installation process of each of the following popular materials!


Shingles are installed in courses, starting at the bottom and overlapping each row. All shingles are secured with nails, making sure the nails aren’t driven in too deep.

Once that’s done and dusted, a drip edge is installed along the eaves of the roof. The roofing felt – also known as the underlayment – is placed over the entire roof, and flashing is nailed down around any chimneys, vents, and other protrusions.

Meanwhile, tile roof shingles are often secured using specialized adhesives or mortar. This is applied to the back of each tile before placing it in position.

Make sure that each tile is correctly aligned and leveled before the adhesive dries completely!

Many tiles are designed to interlock as well, providing greater stability and preventing water entry between the tiles.


For 5V metal, rafters or straps are installed on which the metal sheets will be fastened, providing the necessary structural support. 5V metal sheets are placed starting from the bottom of the roof going up.

They’re secured using screws specially designed for metal roofs. These metal sheets are then overlapped and carefully fastened to create watertight seams. Additional accessories – such as gutters and ridges – are installed for a clean and functional finish.

For standing seam panels, begin installing them from one end of the roof to the other. These panels can be interlocked and secured using concealed clips or fasteners to create a continuous, watertight seal.

You can fold or mechanically join the standing seams together. This process creates raised seams that give the roof a distinct appearance and enhance its water-shedding capabilities.

Install trim pieces along the edges, eaves, and gables for a finished and aesthetically pleasing look. Trim pieces help direct water away from vulnerable areas.

Finally, install end caps at the termination points to seal the edges and prevent water intrusion.

Now that your sparkling new roof has been installed – what comes next?

A final inspection is conducted to ensure that the work meets quality standards and local codes. Any issues or defects identified during the final inspection are addressed.

Final documentation, including material warranties and details of the work performed, is delivered to the client. The client makes the final payment if required.

Roofers such as Chappelle Roofing LLC follow up with the client to ensure long-term satisfaction and address any issues that may arise after the installation.
