Living in Florida, one of the most notable vacation capitals of the world, can sometimes come with a cost – especially when it’s related to our homes. With a combination of the year-round grueling heat, mixed in with hurricane season’s water and wind damage, our roofs sure do take some beatings, don’t they? These serious Florida weather conditions can often cause damage to your home’s roofing system.
But how can you tell if your roof is damaged?
Let’s face it, not every home owner is able to get on top of their roof to investigate, and not every home owner is skilled to spot a roofing problem. Property Renovations and Construction, LLC, your trusted Melbourne Florida roofer, reveals some of the signs that your roof is damaged to help you determine whether you need immediate roof repair.
<b>Water Damage.</b> Everyone living in Florida has experienced the 10-minute rainstorm that seemed to have come out from nowhere. Hot and sunny one minute, torrential rain the next. Heavy and regular Florida rain can cause your roof to weaken and become prone to water penetration, often causing frequent leaks in your attic. Many times, you can spot a water leak in your attic by seeing dis-colorization in your ceiling or walls that may look like water stains. Sometimes you can feel a dampness in your ceilings or walls, or the water damage causes your ceiling or wall paint to bubble. If you have a noticeable pool of water on your floor, then you have a leak.
If you suspect a leak in your roof, you should call a roofing repair company like Property Renovations and Construction because, finding the exact location of where the leak is coming from is difficult to determine if you are not trained to properly detect a leak.
Wind Damage. We’re not generally a windy state, but when hurricane season comes around, the story changes. Hurricane winds have known to tear out trees, roots and all, at 100-mph winds and plow into a roof which can also damage the structural foundation of your home. If your shingles look like they have lifted, some of them have blown away, or your shingles look patchy, you should call a roofing professional to give you a complete assessment.
Please remember that you should always have your roof assessed after a bad storm. Sometimes, leaks and further roof damage can be underlying and not noticeable to the untrained eye. Property Renovations and Construction offers Free estimates, where we can examine your roof and give you a complete assessment on the health of your roof. We also work with insurance companies and government municipality permitting departments to ensure that you receive the most solid service.
