What to Look for During Your Inspection

Whether you choose to inspect your roof from the ground with a pair of binoculars, or you decide that you’d rather have an up-close inspection to ensure you cover your bases thoroughly, there are a number of things you should make sure to look out for. Cracked caulk or rust spots can indicate a possible entry point for leaks. Shingles that are worn out and curling are a weak point that can lead to more serious damage. Missing or broken shingles will allow water to enter your roof and may cause rotting supports and can be extremely dangerous if left alone. Cracked and worn rubber boots around vent pipes are a common way for roofs to leak and cause serious structural damage. Chimney caps are a good way to keep water and animals out of your chimney, so if yours is broken or missing be sure to get it fixed or replaced right away. Moss and lichen may indicate that your roof is decaying and should be dealt with as soon as possible.

My Florida roofing is an amazing company to deal with. The recently redid our roof from shingles to standing seem metal roof. It looks amazing. I got roughly about 10 quotes from the top roofers in Indian river county and they help educate me and showed me different options of material's for the new roof. Their team came in and stripped reroof the entire home in about week to do great weather. They strip and relapse before any rain could hit the exposed material. Rene and Maxine are such a pleasure to deal with. The are very upfront about everything and every detail that you speak with Rene about is backed up with written documentation so you know and see exactly what you are paying for. They also show and explain the different options to add on if you choose to. They are very quick to respond and answer any questions you may have in a timely matter. No doubt in my mind did I make the right decision going with My Florida Roofing. I recommend and would you use them again for any future projects. Again thank you Rene, Maxine and all of the team at My Florida Roofing for making a new roof process so quick and painless

The Reyes' were very friendly, accommodating and professional. Rene visited the site often to check on the work. The crew was professional friendly and efficient. We had our roof replaced, asphalt shingles to metal, almost a year ago now and still marvel at the look. The color matches perfectly with the house trim. I highly recommend MyFloridaRoofing.
