Of all the maintenance work that a homeowner has to keep up with and think about, home roof repair is one of the most important of them all! Maintaining a sound roof keeps you and your family warm and dry, along with everything in your house. Timely roof repairs can prevent further damage and save you thousands of dollars in costly roof repairs and replacements. The team at AWS Roofing is highly experienced in roof repairs and can handle all types of roof problems.
Here are some of the most common reasons to repair your Florida home or commercial property.
Leaks are the most common roofing problems that we encounter in Florida. Many problems can cause leaks, from cracks, loose tiles, faulty installation, and aging to failed sealants, torn underlayments. A roof leak can lead to severe water damage and unsanitary mold growth.
The most common signs of roof leaks are the dreaded stained ceiling or walls, peeling paint on the wall, or mold. Interior water damage is expensive to repair and can lead to toxic mold growth, so it’s crucial to catch leaks in their early stages. If you suspect your roof is leaking, call a member of our team and ask them to check out your roof for any issues.
2. Damaged Flashing
Flashing is the material that keeps water from pooling up on top of your roof keeps water from pooling up on top of your roof. It can be found between fixtures such as skylights or chimneys and the roof and venting pipes under your roofing material redirecting water and bolstering the inside of your building against leaks.
Over time, flashing can loosen, deteriorate, or crack, leaving your house or property vulnerable to rain and moisture. Catch these issues early and have AWS Roofing handle the repairs to avoid further damage.
While most residential roofs can last for 20-30 years, they tend to deteriorate over time. If it has been more than 20 years since someone worked on your roof, then it is likely that you may need some repairs or general maintenance. Bare, grayed-out shingles, piles of shingle granules, rust, and moss are all signs of an old roof that needs to be repaired. Our professional roofers can perform an inspection to determine the extent of the damage and perform the necessary repairs to restore your roof.
4. Damaged or Missing Shingles
If you own a property with a shingle roof, you should inspect it to see if any shingles are missing or damaged. Extreme weather, aging, ice dams, and animal activity can blow off, curl, crack, break or shake your shingles loose. Granules in the gutters or irregular or darker shades on some portions of the roof indicate that the granules have worn away and that some shingles are damaged.
Damaged or missing shingles provide a place for water to get into your home, causing additional damage when bad storms happen. If you notice any damage, loose or missing shingles, it’s time to call the experts at AWS Roofing to come to inspect and repair your roof.
5. Punctures & Holes
A roof puncture is an emergency roof issue since it can expose your roof to leaks which can cause damage to your home or property and allow pests into your home. It’s often caused by peckers or contractors walking over shingles when building, strong winds, rotting caused by moisture on the roof, hailstones, tree branches, or whole trees falling on the roof, and improper installation.
You may have punctures or holes in your roof if you start to notice tiny bits of sunlight shining through the roof. Our roofing specialists will help repair these small holes as well as repair any damage around the holes.
