Frequently Asked Questions

Salt Roofing

Are you a licensed and insured roofing contractor in the state of Florida?

Yes we are a licensed roofing contractor as well as a licensed residential contractor in the state of Florida. We carry workers compensation and general liability insurance for our company and employees.

What type of roofing material do you install?

We install asphalt shingle roofing material from the leading manufacturers in the industry to include GAF, Certainteed, and Owens Corning. We also install metal roofing material both multi rib and standing seam roof in a wide range of material thicknesses. We are a certified and preferred installer for each of the manufacturers listed.

How long does it take to complete the project?

The typical Florida roof can be completed within 1 or two days. However, based on the size of the roof, complexity of the project and the municipality the home is located in, it may take up to three days. This is due to the inspection process being different in different municipalities.

Do you offer free inspections and estimates?

Yes once we receive your information and interest in receiving an estimate for a roof replacement. We enter your information into our system and assign you a project manager to inspect the roof, take photos of the roof and determine what the replacement cost would be. It is our goal to inspect every roof prior to offering an estimate. This allows the project manager the opportunity to inspect for any unforeseen issues that might arise during the installation process. Although it is impossible to predict every issue we believe by visiting the property and actually climbing on the roof and inspecting it we can determine if an insurance claim is necessary or if it will be paid for out of pocket.

How do you determine the amount of material needed?

Answer: There are a number of different tools that can be used to measure. Salt Roofing currently utilizes what is considered one of the most accurate aerial measurements using satellite imagery of the property to sketch the roof with the aid of a computer.

RoofSnap offers the most recent captures of nearly any address – but it gets better. RoofSnap has access to imagery that is updated throughout the year, so not only can your measurements take into account the latest conditions of the property, but if you're measuring an area that's typically blocked by leaves or foliage, you can refer to images during off-season months when those obstructions aren't as prevalent.

Can I Handle My Roofing Task Myself?

To save money, Central Florida residents may decide to treat their roof repair or replacement as a DIY job. Alternatively, they may hire an unlicensed and uninsured roofing contractor to save money.

It's possible to handle minor tasks like cleaning your gutters yourself, but most tasks you should leave to professionals in the industry. Handling a roof repair yourself may result in issues such as:

  • Safety concern: Our roofing company demonstrates the highest quality safety standards when we repair your roof. DIY projects have a bad reputation for causing safety concerns.
  • Improper solutions: Likely, you won't have the right tools to repair your roof. You can spend more money than our initial estimate, and you can cause more damage to your roof.

Voided warranties

A replaced roof or a roof repair may come with a warranty, stipulating you only work with a qualified roofing company in Central Florida. Handling a roofing repair yourself can void this warranty.


How long does a metal roof last, and is it worth the price?

A metal roof can last between 30 and 50 years or more, especially when installed by our expert roofing team in Central Florida. Meanwhile, a traditional shingle roof may only last 12 to 20 years, and this roofing system often requires more maintenance.

While a metal roof is more expensive than a shingle roof, the total cost becomes cheaper over time. If you're planning on living in your home for decades, a metal roof's durability and low maintenance make it the more economical choice in the long run.

Don't metal roofs become noisy when it rains?

Central Florida receives a lot of rain every year, and no one wants a new roof, only to discover that it becomes noisy during a tropical storm.

Your traditional metal roof for a barn can definitely get noisy. However, this noise level is due to factors like metal roof insulation, underlayment, and roof decking. Our Salt Roofing crew can provide various roofing layers, significantly reducing any noise.

Can metal roofs survive hurricanes?

The Central Florida area can experience the direct or after-effects of hurricanes. No roofing system is completely hurricane-proof, but a properly installed metal roof is impressively resistant to heavy storms, including extreme winds.

Does a metal roof require maintenance?

Our roofing crew recommends residents have our team inspect their roofing systems at least once a year. For businesses, we recommend inspections at least twice a year to catch and repair minor issues before they escalate into hefty financial concerns.

While a metal roof is resistant to damage—thanks to its durability—we still suggest regular maintenance.

How long does it take to replace a metal roof?

Installing or replacing a metal roof in Central Florida requires actions like getting the proper permits and administering repairs to a home or an old roof removal. Emphasizing integrity, every cost estimate we provide also comes with an estimated timeline.

Ideally, we can complete a metal roof replacement in a week or less, with some projects only taking a few days.

"Will came out and performed a world class inspection of my entire roof. He then explained the damages he found and showed me the photos he had taken of the damage. Will gave me an estimate and walked me through the steps involved with my homeowners insurance. Later, Will also came out and met with the insurance company inspector to ensure he properly noted all damages. The end result was a new roof that was expertly installed."

"About 5-6 years ago, Nita and Steve replaced our roof. The workmanship, materials and process was seamless. All of the inspections passed without any concerns and the required paperwork completed without error. Moving forward several years, a recent home inspection revealed some shingles in need of repair. I called Nita and she told me they were no longer affiliated with the previous company. She gave me the name and number of the company who assumed warranty work. I called them and they never returned our call. I called Nita back and explained…"
