How do I know if my roof needs to be replaced?

There are a couple of key warning signs that you need a roof replacement:

1) Shingles are curled, crackling, or buckling
2) Shingles are completely missing, particularly in roof valleys
3) Shingle granules in your gutters
4) Signs of leaking, such as dark spots or trails
5) Moss or algae growth

It is essential to survey your roof both inside and out so you can inspect issues from all angles. Contact us today and KTM Exteriors in Lakeland, FL can inspect your roof! Our team of trusted professionals will let you know if a roof replacement is in order.

What is a roof replacement going to cost?

There are many contributing factors that affect the cost of your roof replacement, particularly the size of your roof and the roofing materials, which can vary greatly. While this can often be a daunting cost, we extend several financing options to help you get a new roof over your head!

Do you offer financing options?

Yes! We have several financing partners. KTM Exteriors can work with you to match you with the best provider so you can get funding for your home maintenance projects. These home improvement loans can typically cover a range of projects, including roofing, roof replacement, shingles, siding, and more.

What areas do you service?

We’re currently  servicing across Central & Eastern Florida. With locations in Lakeland and  Jacksonville FL , we can service you quickly and efficiently in all the sourrounding areas.

Do you offer commercial services?

Yes! We offer both commercial and residential services. Whether you’re a homeowner or a business owner (small or large), we are here to help you with all your roofing needs!

My roof is leaking. Do I need to have it totally replaced?

Not necessarily! Leaking can result because of a partially damaged roof or because some flashings have come loose. It doesn’t always mean you need to replace your entire roof. If you want a professional roofer to take a look, call KTM exteriors!

Can’t I just do the work myself?

We don’t recommend DIY projects when it comes to your roof! Not only can it be dangerous, but it can also make for some costly repairs if something went wrong. Professional roofing companies like KTM Exteriors are trained in safety and efficiency when it comes to your roof. Improper roofing techniques and severe injuries from falling off the roof or through the roof can make this a dangerous venture. It’s best to leave this one to the pros!

What can I expect when I get my roof replaced?

There are several steps to a roof replacement:

  1. Arrival of dumpster & shingles.
  2. Protect landscape & begin tearing off old shingles (or we use the Equipter!)
  3. Replacement of old/damaged roof deck with new boards
  4. Installation of ice and water barrier 6′ up
  5. Synthetic underlayment installed for the rest of the roof
  6. Installation of shingles
  7. Cleaning up any nails from the property
  8. Roof audit after installation
