We understand you have a lot of questions, and we’re happy to address each and every one of them. Below, you’ll find some of the most frequently asked roofing questions we encounter. If you don’t find the answer you’re looking for, please contact us for additional help.
How do I know if my roof can be repaired, or if it requires full replacement?
Unfortunately, there is no way for you to personally make the determination on whether your roof will require a quick repair or a full replacement. Our experienced contractors will visit your home and perform a full roof assessment, so we can analyze your roof in its entirety prior to making our expert recommendation. This decision is also based on the severity of the issue and the age of your roof. While replacing shingles or tiles can be a quick repair job, if there is a leak that has damaged your roof flashing, your pipes and vents and other components of your roof, a replacement may be more suitable than a repair job.
What are the steps to fix my leaking roof?
When you call Kairos Roofing due to a roof leak, we will first perform a leak detection procedure. In fact, 95% of the solution is locating the source of the roof leak, so we can diagnose the problem and formulate the proper repair plan as soon as we assess the leak’s cause. Once we have conducted a full evaluation and developed the right roof replacement or repair plan, we will prepare an estimate for the work, which outlines all associated costs, followed by performing the service to repair the leak and related damage.
Keep in mind that if you are not proactive in detecting your roof leak, however, you may end up with damaged insulation, structural issues, ceiling and wall damage and mildew or mold. Therefore, immediate leak detection is key, as soon as you figure out there’s a problem.
How long will it take Kairos Roofing contractors to replace my entire roof?
There are several factors that will impact the timeline of your full roof replacement. First, this depends on the amount of work required by our team to strip your home of the current roof. Additionally, the roof type and all associated materials can impact the timeframe. Also, you may require add-on services, like the installation of hurricane straps, an insulation upgrade, adding roof vents or replacing gutters. Once we complete the full roof replacement analysis and assess your needs, we can provide you with a proper timeline leading up to your roof replacement completion date.
What are the different types of roofs I should consider for my South Florida home?
When choosing a new roof for your South Florida, it’s important to first consider your budget and preferred aesthetic. A great way to decide on which roof you’d like to install is to take a walk or drive around your neighborhood to peruse the roofs in your area. In addition, if you belong to a homeowner’s association, you may be subject to complying with certain roof requirements when making this decision.
At Kairos Roofing, we offer five, Florida-compliant roof styles that meet all state codes and standards: flat roofs, concrete tile roofs, clay tile roofs, metal roofs and shingle roofs.
What is a roofing system, and do I need one?
A roofing system is an essential part of your roof. It is the waterproof membrane installed prior to external roof features. Your roof system, also known as an underlayment, is important to the long-term health and performance of your roof. Your underlayment is waterproof, which is essential in protecting your roof – and the rest of your home – from the heavy rains and winds that occur at certain points in the year, especially during hurricane season.
How can I protect my roof from an upcoming hurricane?
As a South Florida homeowner, ensuring your home is prepared for hurricane season gives you peace of mind that your roof will hold up and withstand the next big storm. Along with installing hurricane straps and repairing any roof leaks with the help of our experienced Kairos Roofing team, make sure to prioritize a home audit to ensure your home’s structure is strong and intact.
How can I ensure a long lifespan for my new roof?
As a homeowner, it’s important to factor regular roof maintenance into your investment, so you can ensure your roof lives a long and healthy life. Roof lifespans typically range from 10 to 50 years, and beyond, depending on the style and materials you select. However, that doesn’t mean you won’t lose a few shingles or spring a leak during a bad storm once in a while. Kairos Roofing offers maintenance plans to extend the life expectancy of your roof, along with different roof warranty options, to ensure your roof investment receives the proper care and attention during all stages of life.
What financing options are available when I hire Kairos Roofing?

We love working with Ygrene, because we share the same values when it comes to energy efficiency and hurricane preparation. When you request financing for your roof, Ygrene offers low, fixed rates and no upfront costs.
