Smart property owners and property managers request estimates from multiple contractors prior to accepting a bid. Even the smartest can find it extremely confusing when trying to compare each estimate and understand the important decisions that need to be made in replacing or repairing a roof. Estimates can vary widely between contractors, sometimes by tens
Design trends come and go, but metal roofs have stood the test of time in Florida. In fact, metal roofs have been protecting homes in the Sunshine State since the late 1800s. Early settlers recognized that metal panels were relatively inexpensive to ship and simple to install. Today, metal remains a popular roofing choice.
Roofing repairs are not DIY projects. DIY improvement shows on TV can make renovation projects look easy, especially for a skilled DIYer. However, if your project involves a roof repair, squash those thoughts immediately. Roof repairs should be left only to licensed roofing professionals. And by roofing professionals, we don’t mean maintenance technicians, building supervisors,
During rainy season, your roof is like a heavyweight fighter. It absorbs blow after blow from Mother Nature – intense UV rays, heavy downpours, high winds and possibly falling branches.

The summer of 2020 is shaping up to be one of Southwest Florida’s hottest on record. Unfortunately, record heat also means record utility bills as A/C systems run nearly nonstop to keep homes and businesses cool. Is an inefficient A/C system to blame? In many cases, A/C systems are working precisely as designed, but they’re fighting a losing battle against solar radiation. During the
Safety and technology have always been paramount at Target Roofing & Sheet Metal. Now, Target Roofing has married the two to protect employees and customers in light of COVID-19. The company is offering “no-touch” roof estimates that minimize face-to-face contact.

When you’re driving through rain and encounter a puddle, your vehicle can lose traction. Roadways are engineered to use gravity to direct rainwater into trenches, but wear and tear from heavy traffic can disrupt the natural flow. The same design principles apply to roofs. The steep slope of residential roofs essentially eliminates the possibility of
Every product comes with a warranty, and that includes your roof. But every warranty also comes with fine print, pages upon pages of disclaimers written by the manufacturer that provide “outs” – reasons why the company does not have to repair or replace a particular item. Manufacturers place the responsibility on you, the product owner, to
