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 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.

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.
