What Is Retrofitting?  

Roof retrofitting refers to upgrading your existing roof to enhance its performance, durability, and resistance to extreme weather conditions. From strengthening the roof structure to improving energy efficiency, our skilled team has the expertise to transform your roof into a fortress against the elements.

Can Retrofitting Your Roof Help You Save on Insurance Premiums?

According to the Florida Department of Finance, a significant portion of your insurance premium (15%-70%) goes toward wind-damage risk. With our retrofitting services, you can save up to 40% on roofing insurance each year and keep your roof up to date with state and insurance regulations.

Our team can also perform a wind mitigation inspection after your new roof installation to get you insurance discounts. While insurance savings can vary by provider, water barrier improvements generally include the following:

  • Approved shingles: 11%
  • Concrete Roof: 82%
  • Anchors: 35%

Benefits of Retrofitting

  • Enhanced protection against hurricane and wind damage
  • Extended lifespan of your roof
  • Potential insurance premium savings
  • Increased energy efficiency and reduced utility costs
  • Compliance with state codes and regulations
  • Improved property value and curb appeal
  • Peace of mind during storm seasons

Does Retrofitting Improve Energy Efficiency?

Roof retrofitting can drastically improve the energy efficiency of your home. Our experts can add insulation, install reflective roofing materials, or incorporate cool roof systems to minimize heat transfer. By reducing your cooling needs, you'll enjoy lower energy bills and a greener footprint.
