Common Roof Issues
If you are noticing stains along your ceiling after it rains, this is a sign of a roof leak. Our professional roofing contractors will be able to determine where the leak is coming from and how to fix it.
Clogged or Overflowing Gutters
When debris clogs up your gutters, water can’t flow properly away from the roof, causing pooling that can result in water damage. Plus, the weight from the debris can cause the gutters to pull away from the roof, creating damage to your roof and the structure of your home. Make sure you are consistently cleaning out your gutters to expand not only their lifespan, but that of your roof.
If you are noticing water stains underneath the overhang (this area is called the soffit), this may mean the soffit or fascia is rotting. Fascia rotting can be caused by clogged gutters (yet another reason why it is important to keep gutters clear). If damaged fascia is not addressed, it can lead to mold buildup and rot inside the roof, which is not only costly, but a health hazard.
Cracked, Broken, or Missing Roof Tiles
It is best to replace a tile as soon as you notice that it is damaged or loose. Even one broken tile can lead to costly roof problems if left unaddressed.
Dry, Rotted, or Brittle Shingles
Shingles are prone to becoming dry, rotted or brittle due to Florida heat and humidity. It is best to replace the shingles before they become too damaged and lead to further, more complex issues.
