basics of roof replacement

Galaxy Builders – Roofer

Roof replacement and installation

When you keep repairing your roof, but more leaks keep appearing, it may be time to consider a roof replacement with Galaxy Builders, Inc. We have spent years in Jacksonville perfecting our industry, and we are proud to offer the most energy-efficient and weather-resistant designs in the area. Our innovative process coupled with the unmatched skill of our roofers makes our installations and replacements reliable and long-lasting.

Our Process

Designing a new roof is more than just choosing the right color of shingle for your home. At Galaxy Builders Inc., we take both your home and the climate of your area into consideration when helping you choose the layers that will go into your roof. Homes in Jacksonville and the surrounding areas have to contend with excessive moisture, high temperatures, and occasional strong winds, and we design our roofs based on this information.

Protection

Each layer of your roof works together to keep out moisture and protect against the elements. The visible shingles on your home are its first defense against wind, rain, hail, and sun. At the same time, your shingles should also be attractive and add to the beauty of your home. One of the first things we do is help you choose the shingles that best fit your needs and your budget.

Water Resistance

It is important to seal your roof to prevent the damaging effects that water can have on your roof over time. The next layer of your home’s roof should be a waterproofing or an ice and water barrier layer to keep water from damaging the roof deck. We typically install two underlayment layers for superior moisture lock protection.

Ventilation

It is important for your roof to breathe to keep heat and water from becoming trapped. Trapped heat and moisture can cause mold and disintegration of roofing materials. To this end, we add ventilation solutions for every type of home. We also recommend our Attic Breeze solar attic fans which increase ventilation in your attic and help remove hot air from your home.

Energy Efficiency

Many of today’s homeowners want a roof that increases their homes’ energy efficiency; a roof that will lower their carbon footprint and monthly energy costs. Our Genesis Roof Underlayment helps keep out radiant heat and keep your home cooler – even on the hottest Florida summer days! Including our Genesis Roof Underlayment during your roof replacement ensures maximum coverage and maximum benefits.

Choosing Galaxy Builders, Inc. For Your Replacement

You should never compromise on the quality of your roof replacement or installation. It is important to hire a roofing contractor that takes the time to make sure your roofing job is done well. Some companies cut corners to finish as many projects as they can, but at Galaxy Builders, we don’t leave a job until you are completely satisfied with the result.

Licensed and Insured

One of the reasons that you can feel safe entrusting your installation or replacement project to us is that we are fully licensed and insured. You should never work with a roofer that does not have these qualifications. We also hire roofers who are experienced and who value quality above all. .

High Ratings

When choosing a roofing contractor, it is also important to look online to see what other customers are saying about a company. We have an A+ rating with BBB, and our customers have consistently left glowing reviews of our products and services. When it comes to roof replacement, choose a company that is trusted by other members of your community.

Clean Work Space

We know that your home and landscaping are important to you. It is our goal to protect your grass and plants from falling debris and to clean the entire workspace after the project is completed. We cover plants and other greenery and then search the area for nails or other debris before leaving the site.

Do I Need a Replacement?

Our Roofers at Galaxy Builders can help you determine whether you need a replacement or a simple repair. Generally, when there are several leaks, your roof has begun to buckle, or you are noticing signs of rot, this is an indication that a replacement is needed. Our commitment to our customers is to only suggest a replacement when one is truly needed, so you can trust us for our honest opinion.

Your roof is there to protect you and your home from the unpredictable Jacksonville weather. We have been helping homeowners in the area with quality installations and replacements since 2003, and we are excited to help you with your project. Call for a free roofing estimate today!
