Inspecting your shingle roof


Inspecting your shingle Roof? I do not recommend that you inspect your roof, I think it is best to pay a professional. However, if you must, below are some signs to look out for.

  • Inspecting your shingle roof – Walk around the exterior of your home, look at the roof from the ground for signs of any damage, sagging, and aging. If t your roof deck is sagging or if you can see natural light showing through the roof, call a roofing contractor for an estimate.

  • If you notice shingles that are buckling, curling, or blistering, this would be a sign that you need to replace your roof. Hot air from attics often causes shingles to buckle and curl away from the home, putting your roof at risk for more damage and poor roof ventilation
  • Missing or broken shingles. Look for missing, damaged, and aged shingles – this is the leading cause of roof damage. By inspecting your roof you can catch this before it becomes a major issue and then cause damage. Missing shingles leaves the underlayment exposed to inclement weather, and it looks unattractive!
  • When inspecting your shingle roof look for cracked and worn rubber boots around vent pipes, this leads to leaks.
  • Rotted leaves and moss could mean the roof is damaged underneath. identify areas with moss, algae, and piles of leaves – these areas are notorious for causing major leaks. Are there damage marks or water spots. Rot and mold can occur when you have constant water exposure to wood rafters.
  • Look closely for granule loss. Granule loss indicates that shingles have aged or have been affected by severe weather, and are no longer protecting your home against damaging storms. If your shingles don’t have a texture on them anymore, it is time for a new roof!
  • It is important to clean your gutters and roof overhangs and maintain your downspouts! As you’re performing these essential tasks, make note of open joins and signs of rot, as those are typical indicators of larger issues.
  • Always hire a licensed and insured roofing contractor

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.
