Roof repairs can be costly if left too long.

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.

If You Find Something During Your Home Inspection

If your shingles need to be replaced, this can be done by yourself, given you’re comfortable on a roof, with a $24 bundle of shingles and $6 roofing caulk. Vents, chimneys and skylights can also be resealed with roofing caulk on your own. Be sure to check if your flashing and vents boots are rusted, because those will need to be replaced. You also have to option of calling a professional roofing company.

Having my roof done by My Florida Roofing has been nothing less than an excellent experience. The entire team has been super professional and attentive from the beginning. From the office team who handles the paperwork/permits and customer service and quickly sets up appointments; to Felix, our very knowledgeable and courteous sales rep, who was in constant contact throughout the project time, to give us updates and check up on us; to the installers who did an amazing job; to the owner who made sure to personally come and inspect before, during and after the roof was installed. Everyone did an outstanding job. Now let's talk about GOING ABOVE & BEYOND: Maria - the project manager. She was absolutely the person that made the entire process smooth and easy. She was always available to answer any questions and to give me updates (Maria - you are amazing- thank you!) We love our new roof. I am thrilled we decided to use My Florida Roofing. Thank you! I totally recommend this company and to anyone who needs to come by and see our roof we are at Lindsey Lanes - Vero Beach (house will be painted off-white soon, but for now is Yellow) - See photo for reference.
