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.

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.
