The biggest question we receive on a weekly basis is:
When do I need to replace my roof?
Most high quality roofing products come with a 20 to 30 year warranty. Some even come with a lifetime warranty (to the original purchaser of the roof for as long as you own your home)
There are many factors which contribute to whether a roof will last between 20 and 30 years. The Florida Sun just eats through anything. Rain and humidity are also a factor in deterioration of roof surfaces as well as debris on the roof.
Usually around the 20 to 25 year mark, we get calls to do a roof inspection to help the homeowner identify any roofing issues or other concerns they should be aware of. Sometimes damage can occur underneath the shingles. When this happens, small fixes can be done to extend the life of your roof.
This is the premise of our Free 10-Point Roofing Inspection. We will help you identify:
- Loose or worn shingles. Cracked or missing tiles.
- Loose or missing flashing (underneath the roof product)
- Damage due to nearby limbs
- Storm damage to due hail or lightening
- Damage near the gutter systems (if applicable)
- Check all roofing vents
- Check skylights
- Check for holes from a multitude of outdoor animals.
- Stains inside the attic from any roof leaks.
- Stains on your ceiling which could be caused by a roof leak.
During the inspection, your roofing specialist will take digital photos of each area inspected. At the end of the inspection, you can expect those photos as well as a written report of our findings. Most of the times, there are only small fixes to address which will extend the life of your roof a few more years. A roof inspection by a licensed roofing contractor will allow you to address any minor issues while avoiding major roof repairs.
If you are reading this page, you must have concerns about your roof. This is a good time to take action. The longer you let these concerns linger, the higher the potential for additional damage.
