Nail Guns can cause Blowout

At Tropicana Roofing,
we hand-nail all of our roofs

We always use high quality roofing materials, and hand nail all of our roofing were some other roofing companies do much less. The average roofing tar-paper is rated at 30lbs per square inch which would seem to be tough enough but, it can be damaged and a tear in the tar-paper can mean water damage to your home.

Reccommended by Tropicana Roofing

We always hand-nail the under liner and shingles, rather than using nail or staple guns. Nail guns drive the hardware into the plywood by air pressure which when not adjusted properly can result in shingles that are not properly secured to the plywood roof. Owens Corning Roofing Shingles is our preferred vendor for residential roof replacement.

Complete Roofing Material Teardown

We remove all of the old shingles and under liner (typically a builder grade tar paper) exposing all of the plywood followed by removing the previously used nails and or staples. After having removed all of the pre-existing roofing materials, we can then examine the roof vent boots and all of the wood structure and discover any dry rot, water stains, water damage and replace any damaged roofing as needed.

High Quality Products

High Quality Products

RHINOROOF synthetic underlayment is a superior product and has an increased puncture resistance feature when compared to that of tar paper. What this means to you is the branch which fell on your roof and damaged the shingles, is less likely to rip through the underlayment, thereby keeping the plywood dry during the rest of the rainy weather period. This then allows for a higher level of confidence in the weather protection of your home’s roof.
Hand Crafted Roofing

Hand Crafted Roofing

All our roofs are hand-nailed. For example, a nail gun that has a pressure setting that is too high can result in blow through. Blow through is when the nailhead pierces the shingle and is driven through the shingle. A nail that penetrates below the surface of the shingle it creates a path for water to get to the plywood not to mention it will not be capable of keeping the shingle attached to the roof. 

Making a claim on your homeowner's insurance to replace your roof

BECAUSE WEATHER HAPPENS

Time and Mother Nature are working against your roof.

Hidden Damage

Tropicana Roofing insists on a full inspection prior to roof replacement. This allows us to be sure that your new roof will be worry free. Other roofing companies do not perform inspections to the same level as Tropicana Roofing. We treat every job just like it was being done on our homes.

Got Questions?

We all have homeowners insurance to cover damages sustained in weather events like high winds and hailstorms. If you have substantial damage, we would urge you to contact us for a no-cost evaluation of damage level on your roof. We can help you to decide if making a claim is in your best interest. Your insurance company will also want to assess the damage and we are happy to be there during that inspection to help point out our findings should that be neccesary.

Hailstone Damage

Have you seen what hailstone damage can do to a car? It can do similar damage to your home's roof. While it doesn't penetrate the body parts of a car, it can burst through the roof shingles resulting in a path for water to begin attacking the plywood. Due to our complete roof replacement process we will find any water damaged plywood and replace it before putting new shingles in place.
