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.https://myflroofingcon.wpengine.com/how-does-your-gutter-affect-your-roof/

My Florida Roofing was phenomenal, always on time and detail oriented. Very knowledgeable on the different types of roofs and options. Felix and Maria, picked up the phone immediately and always answered my questions. The owner Rene was on site frequently looking over the job. They were also the best priced and were even recommended by other roofing companies. Very happy with the outcome.

I definitely had a 5 Star experience with My Florida Roofing Contractors; and would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone who values working with an exceptional team of professionals. I needed a roof replacement and from the beginning, I found Felix Bello to be knowledgeable, responsive, client-focused, patient, thorough and a person of integrity. As I worked with other members of the team, like Maria Lopez, I learned these qualities were mirrored throughout the organization. What a great culture and excellent experience as a client.

I was consulted and kept informed of every stage of the process, no surprises!

That’s HOW they do business and WHAT they delivered was equally paramount and impressive. The installation was timely and everything passed inspections, no rework. The roof looks amazing, which has been validated by multiple compliments from neighbors. This was an outstanding experience with an outstanding outcome. A great return on investment—there aren’t enough of these! Thank you in spades!
