Orlando/Dr Phillips GAF Roofer, Tips to Save You Money!

August 10th, 2018

All roofs in Orlando need maintenance to ensure reliability, longevity, and to keep water leaks from happening. And yes, you want it to look great and have good curb appeal. If you have shingles, tiles, or a metal roof, it is affected by the weather.

Severe storms, high precipitation levels, strong winds, exposure to the intense heat of direct sunlight most of the year, takes a toll on all roofs.

Most people don’t give much thought to their roof, until something happens. Whether it’s a water leak, black stains, or algae, they regret now giving their roof the attention it deserved earlier. Now they are shelling out for a whole new roof.

Easy roof maintenance tips to save you money

Regular inspections

Routine roof inspections can help prevent serious problems, just like tune ups for your car. Be on the look out for missing or damaged shingles or tiles, cracks, lifting shingles, moss growth, and removing any debris. If you’re not comfortable getting up on your roof, contact Schick Roofing.

Moisture penetrating any part of the roof can cause deterioration, water leaks, and significantly shorten its lifespan.

Roof cleaning

Those black stains on the roof are very popular in Central Florida. Not only do they make your property look unattractive, they can seriously damage your roof.

Don’t just think you can power wash your roof or spray bleach on it, that would do more harm than good. It is important to have a professional roofer uses a ‘soft water’ cleaning method, which is recommended by the Roof Cleaning Institute of America. The residual effect of the biodegradable solution used to clean the roof will keep it looking great and prevent future algae growth for some time.

Don’t worry, if you notice any damaged roofing material or black stains, it doesn’t mean you have to have the entire roof replaced.

Schick Roofing is proud to be one of the few roofing companies here in Central Florida who have earned the GAF Master Elite contractor certification. It is such a distinguished achievement that only the top 3% of roofers throughout the country have obtained such an accomplishment.

Our goal is to provide affordable and professional roofing service to both residential homes and commercial business throughout the Dr. Phillips and Southwest Orlando area. We are proud to offer accurate and honest roof assessments at an affordable price.
