The World Of Roofing And Shingles

Sometimes one needs to get up on a roof and clean. There are a lot of reasons that I roof can become cluttered with debris or leaves or any number of pieces of trash that are blown about by the wind or other contributing factors. Keeping the roof of one’s home in good cleanliness and working order is an important part of maintaining any structure.

If the integrity of a roof is compromised for any reason, it can lead to costly maintenance or repairs within the home as well. So, when you maintain a roof and the components that are necessary to do so, gutters, roofing shingles, chimneys and other elements, you are protecting much more than just the immediate roof.

Safety is always a factor when dealing with a roof. Make sure that your ladder is in good working order and any broom or other cleaning device that is being used is the correct tool for the job. Once on the roof, any and all jobs that need attention should be taken care of as soon as possible.

Gutters should be cleaned out and free of debris whenever possible and necessary. The roof should also be checked for any standing debris such as tree branches, leaves, or other trash that might impede water’s course as it runs down the roof towards the gutters.

If need be, we should sweep the roof free of this debris. Sometimes this causes problems for the conditions of the roof, especially if roofing shingles are being employed.

Roofing shingles come in many different materials, but the basic design may be susceptible to damage from the elements or our cleaning efforts.

The best thing to do with shingles is, as they deteriorate, to replace them individually. This will cut down on the continued damage to other shingles or the roof as a whole. That means that the entire roof will not need to be re-shingled as soon. Proper maintenance goes a long way towards the longevity of a roof.

If the shingles on a roof do need to be replaced in mass, the hardware store is the best place to start and ask questions. The budget and the weather conditions of your area will be main factors in determining what material to go with. Wood, steel, ceramic? What is the build of your roof and what kind of nail do you buy to tack the shingles to the roof. Sometimes the answer to such question is not readily available. If it is possible, it is always good to consult or hire a professional in the industry to take care of the project. Sometimes the do-it-yourself approach is not the best idea when it comes to large projects like re-shingling a 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!
