CHECK YOUR ROOF:
Every so often you need to take a good look at your roof, with the sudden wind driven storms we get here in Florida your roof shingles may be lifting. During the months when we have high wind speeds, heavy rain, hail and thunder storms, your roof is taking on a lot of wear and tear so it is important to make sure it is standing up to the task. The lifting of your shingles starts to loosen them from the roof membrane and over time the more they loosen the more prone they are to come off in a sudden storm or hurricane. Once you have a few shingles missing from a storm your roofing system becomes compromised.
Hail damage is also more common than you may think. If you see dark spots on your roof after a hail storm give us a call and we will inspect the damage for you. We can work with your insurance adjuster to get you a new roof.
KEEP YOUR ROOF AND GUTTERS CLEAN:
Debris on your roof can cause a myriad of problems from clogged gutters to trapped moisture causing moss and algae growth. Regular cleaning is vital to preventing future issues.
