4 Dr Phillips/Windermere Roof Repairs You Should Never Ignore

May 27, 2019

Your Orlando area roof is a big investment. When it has a problem, such as a small leak, raised asphalt roofing shingles, compromised underlayment, flashing or even vent boots, may not seem like big issues. Putting it off can lead to costly repairs.

Structural and Electrical Damage

Moisture coming from a compromised roof can easily infect the building. Making its way into the electrical work or breaker to damage appliances, trip the breaker, or even cause a fire.  It can also seep through the underlayment, decking, into the framing,  then the attic, drywall, even to the foundation. 

Reduce the Efficiency of the Insulation 

Once in the attic, water will soak into the insulation. Once fiberglass and other types of insulation materials are exposed to water they compress and clump. When this happens your home loses a large amount of energy efficiency. 

Mildew and Mold Damage

Mold easily grows in humid condition here in Central Florida. If water leaks into your attic, it doesn’t take long in the warm and dark conditions for mold to start growing. Quickly infecting the ceiling, walls, and the rest of your home. 

Check the attic during the day. If you can see any sunlight, a musty odor, or excessive moisture, you probably have holes in the roof.

Increased Roof Damage

You may think it is just a small roof leak, but small issues quickly turn into big problems and major headaches. The earlier you contact the professionals at Schick Roofing, the more money you will save! 

How old is your roof?  Generally roofs are designed to have a lifespan of 15 to 30 years. There are a few factors that can contribute to the life, maintenance, material quality, exposure to strong storms and hail. It is important to have your roof inspected regularly, detecting problems early can save tons of money and frustration down the road.
