Roof Inspections

Some roof inspections  may be done by a home inspection service; perhaps like a metal roof or tile roof inspection .These are two of  the most common and  strongest roofs you can have on a building or home, in Indian River County. A damaged tile or metal roof would be obvious to spot if you have some experience working with roofs or doing roof inspections. On a tile roof one may find broken or cracked tiles, chipped mortar finish or failing counter flashing sealant ,to say the least.
On a metal roof, you may find rust, missing fasteners or deteriorated neoprene washers, bent or dinged metal roof panels. So the signs of damage are obvious.
Sometimes the most inexpensive and easiest to apply roof ,like a shingle roof may present a greater challenge to find hard to see mistakes or damages. I recently was called to estimate a shingle roof, that as per the roof  inspection  report, claimed only to have ridge shingles damaged by hail. As soon as climbed on the roof and took a closer look, I noticed that the roof had over 25 exposed nails or as the industry calls them ,shiners, throughout the roof, these shiners are caused by installer error or sometimes improperly placed nails that  will pop out through the shingle tab. These nails are usually the most common causes of leaks on asphalt shingle roofs, the exposed nail  will eventually begin to rust and deteriorate and act as a conduit to the plywood that will eventually leak into the home and create more damage to repair. Other incorrections that I found ,was exposed bull or tar.
When flashing with bull it should always remain concealed, this homeowner may have hired someone to perform some roof maintenance on their roof , that was  probably was lacking in experience because after applying bull over the shingles it was obviously that a leak may have occurred in that area of the roof and they were trying to repair by spackleing black tar cement over the problem. A proper repair on a roof is no different than any other type of repair where one should remove the necessary layers in steps to reach the problem. Once the problem is corrected reinstall the existing or new pieces back to its original place, and once completed the repair should look almost as it never happened. This inspector, sorry to say, obviously had very little experience working with roofs and missed a lot in correction that would have caused his buyer headaches down the road.

I cannot recommend My Florida Roofing Contractor-Rene Reyes highly enough! As our roof was reaching its 20-year mark, we decided to entrust My Florida with the task, and we couldn't be more pleased with the experience.

From start to finish, the entire process was seamless and impressive. The roof passed its final inspection just a week after the work commenced, a testament to the efficiency and quality of their work. The crew's service and work ethic were truly outstanding, and their teamwork and attention to detail were remarkable.

Throughout the project, I was kept informed of every step, ensuring that I was always in the loop. The crew's professionalism shone through not only in their work but also in how diligently they cleaned up after themselves. To top it off, the roof was completed by the end of the second day, showcasing their commitment to timeliness and excellence.

Dan, who was present throughout the entire process, deserves special commendation for his professionalism and the smooth flow he brought to the project. Working with him was a pleasure and ensured that everything went according to plan.

In conclusion, My Florida Roofing Contractor-Rene Reyes exceeded our expectations in every way. If you're looking for a reliable, efficient, and professional roofing contractor, look no further. Thank you to the entire team for a job well done!

Me and my wife couldn’t be happier with our experience with the My Florida Roofing Team. They did an outstanding job from start to finish. Felix provided a very knowledgeable, detailed, and transparent explanation at the beginning of our process of what to expect with the installation of a new roof. Felix was there to guide us from the selection of shingles all the way threw to the completion of our roof. Maria’s responsiveness and constant communication with updates of the process was outstanding. The on-site team was on time every day very professional and clean!
Rene was there every morning, and at the end of every day to make sure everything was being done up to his standards. The whole entire My Florida Roofing team should be commended for there communication, culture and professionalism. I highly recommend My Florida Roofing.
