This roof project was part of a new construction residence in the northern area of Miami-Dade County. The job required 1,400 sq. ft of new roof decking, #30 felt roofing paper and dimensional asphalt shingles. A dark grey shingle, Charcoal by GAF®, was installed to match the modern monochromatic color scheme of the homes exterior.

The owners of this Coral Gables home had extended the life of their previous roof with a white sealant, but now it was time for a complete roof replacement. The homeowners chose a flat concrete roof tile in grey with light streaks, called Silverado by Crown®. Crown® manufacturers one of the few concrete roof tiles permitted by the by-laws of Coral Gables. The City of Coral Gables has very strict by-laws regarding exterior modifications, including roof replacement.

Before & After Photos
This flat roof replacement project also required complete decking replacement. The decking was damaged from excessive water puddling for long periods of time. This allows for water to penetrate through any cracks in the roofing paper, making its way to the wood and rotting it over time.
Rausa Builders Corp. removed all the existing roofing paper and all decking. After decking replacement, 75 Felt with Tin Cap was installed, followed by 2 Fiber Layers with hot mop and finally, the cap sheet installation with hot mop as well.
This small shingle roof in the City of North Miami Beach was severely weathered with curling, cracked and missing shingles. The homeowners contacted Rausa Builders Corp for a complete roof replacement.
