When a need for a new roof arose following several prior repairs to the existing roofing structure, our clients elected to contract First Service to replace the entire roof. We started by removing the existing shingle roofing system and disposing of those materials accordingly. Following the inspection of the existing decking, we replaced any damaged wood and re nailed to the appropriate Florida Building Code. New peel and stick leak barrier was added along with the necessary 26 gauge valley metals and drip edge flashing. As a GAF Master Elite Certified Contractor, our customer elected to have us install their premium shingle system to the entire roof. We used the GAF Pro-Start shingles at all eave/rake locations along with their 130mph rated GAF Timberline HD shingles throughout the roof.
The newly completed roof not only accented our customer’s home beautifully, but also provides added protection from Florida’s harsh weather environment. This homeowner can now weather any storm with a new roof courtesy of First Service!
We began the project by removing the existing tile roof and underlayment. These materials were then disposed of properly in accordance with local code. With the wood decking exposed, we inspected and replaced any areas that were deteriorated or damaged. The decking was then re-nailed to meet hurricane mitigation codes and a new tile underlayment was installed to the entire roof surface. All of the appropriate drip edge flashing, galvalume valley metal, eave closure metal, and galvalume kitchen/dryer vents were also installed. New lead flashing was also installed around all plumbing stacks to seal up these areas.
With the home ready for its new roofing tile, our team went to work installing Villa’s 900 Arbor Green tile to the entire roof with the appropriate fastener application system per manufacturer specifications. Once complete we went to work installing new tan 6” aluminum seamless gutters along with the appropriate downspouts and splash guards to properly route water off the home’s roof.
This homeowner can now safely weather any storm with a new tile roof from First Service accompanied with both workmanship and manufacturer warranties! We would like to thank our amazing homeowner for the opportunity to solve their roofing issues, and for trusting our family owned and operated company.

Our office was recently contacted to inspect a metal roof on a home in Marco Island, Florida. Once inspected it was apparent where the issues were present and what needed to be done to resolve the homeowner’s concerns with their significant roof leak.
