How do I know if my roof is getting old?
Even you don't have a leak, here are few symptoms to look for to know that you might soon need roof job.
If you look in your gutter, and find a lot of little asphalt granules, that's a clear sign that your shingle roof is on a way out. The granules are falling out from your aging shingles.
If you see any curled shingles or buckled shingles, that's another sign of impeding roof trouble. If you see any cracks in the shingles, cracks in the tiles, or cracks in the rubber caulking around the vents, it's only the matter of time before the water gets on the inside.
If you have a metal roof and see rusting spots, your roof needs painting asap before the metal gets too thin.
The price was fair. Materials were the best in class (I’m a construction superintendent by profession, so I know quite a bit about the subject). The work started right away after the permit was obtained. Trash got hauled away the same day, each day. I spoke with 5 other companies beforehand, but I’m sure glad I went with Hollywood Elite Roofing. Highly recommended!

What should I look for when hiring a roofing contractor?
Installing a roof is a major undertaking. Make sure to do your due diligence when choosing your contractor.
Make sure that they are insured and licensed.
Ask about the warranty specific to the roofing material that you chose. There are two warranties to look for: labor warranty and material warranty.
Make sure that the building materials that you choose are in sufficient stock.
Do talk the timeline and check the weather. One Florida shower is all you need to soak a house without a roof.
Make sure that the area around the house will be protected, and that trash removal and clean up will be taken care of.
A rough estimate over the phone is ok. But make sure that your roofer comes out in person to inspect your site before giving you a project price.
Make sure that you are getting a quality waterproofing barrier for your roof with the installation.
Make sure that the roof will be reinforced with starter strip shingles/tiles is the first line of defense against a hurricane (if the first row of the roofing material peels, the whole roof goes).
It also goes without saying, but don't look for the lowest quote that you can find. Issues stemming from a poor job are never worth a bit of money saved.
Is a permit required before starting a roof job?
How do I find where my roof is leaking?
The common problem spots are: peeling and curling shingles, deteriorating flashing around vents, clogged drainage, deteriorating fascia and soffits.
Unfortunately, the trouble spot is not always above the damaged ceiling, as water can, and often does, run along the trusses.
It does take a trained and experienced eye to spot and fix the problem quickly, though. If you want to just have it done and not have to worry about it, just call us. Of course, we'll give you a warranty on our work.
How does the roof warranty work?
The job is done, the crew has cleaned up and left, and the newly installed roof is beautiful. Now that the job is complete, it is important to know what warranties apply to your new roof.
At Hollywood Elite Roofing, we stand behind our work. We pledge to give our customers a quality roof that is installed correctly and will perform as expected for the duration of its life. This does not mean that the roof may not need regular maintenance throughout its usable life. Just like a car needs a tune-up, oil change or inspection, your roof needs regular maintenance and upkeep to maximize its lifespan.
Once the job is complete, we will issue you a warranty package for the roof, which includes the material and workmanship warranties.
The workmanship warranty states that from the date of installation for a set number of years, (typically 10 years), there will not be any leaks caused by the original application errors of any approved roofing materials provided and installed by our company. We will repair, at no cost to the customer, any leaks which are deemed to be caused by our workmanship.
The warranty is limited to roof repairs only and does not cover any damages to the property that are caused by acts of God. This means that forces such as tornadoes, hurricanes, hail, lightning, earthquakes and the like that are outside of Hollywood Elite Roofing’s control are not covered.
Material failure is another issue that is not covered under the workmanship warranty, although it IS covered by the manufacturer’s warranty that is delivered within the closing package.
This is just an overview of how all the warranty pieces come together. Please speak to us for additional details.
What's my roof made of?
Your roof is much more than the top layer that you usually see. Let's take a regular house roof for example.
Rafters and trusses create the frame of the roof.
Sheathing sheets support the weight of the roof.
Some sort of waterproof material goes on top on the sheathing.
Tiles, shingles, or metal sheets go on top.
Now to the little details. Flashing is a material that goes around anything that protrudes from the roof (think vents and chimneys). If dealing with a leak, this is the first place to check.
Fascia is the "face" of the roof at the point where roofing material ends. More than purely decorative, properly affixed fascia will protect your roof in a hurricane.
A soffit is an area outside the house underneath the roof. This area is the "lungs" of the roof.
A gutter is a channel that makes proper water drainage possible.
