Top 10 Roofing Problems

Roof Leaks

Old lifted shingles

Every roof in Central Florida endures some very harsh elements, heat, humidity, fluctuating temperatures, wind, rain, and even hail.  All of this can lead to shingle damage, lifting, mold and rot. Repairing a small problem before it becomes a big one is easier and most cost effective way to go. 

Poor Installation 

Poor installation or materials leads to costly problems. If you want a roof that has a long lifespan, you need to make sure it is installed by a professional with experience and high standards. 

Critter Infestation 

Squirrels, birds, and even lizards can cause more damage than you think. If you suspect critters are making their home on your roof or attic, make sure you take care of it as soon as possible. 

Poorly Installed Flashing

Flashing is installed around pipes, chimneys, and skylights to protect the openings. But if it is poorly installed or the heat and humidity has taken its toll, it can lead to leaks.

Lack of Maintenance

Regular maintenance and inspections can catch a problem early, before it gets out of control and becomes a costly issue.

Pooling Water

Water can pool on a roof for several reasons, a build up of debris, clogged gutters, or an improperly draining air conditioner. Whatever the reason, it needs to be resolved.

Poor Ventilation

Attics here in Central Florida need to be properly ventilated. Reducing the temperature, moisture level, and extending the life of your roof.

Blistering shingles

A build up of moisture can cause shingles to blister. This can occur because of natural aging, an attic that is not properly ventilated, or exposure to the sun’s intense heat. They all can cause small holes or cracking in the shingle, which causes them to blister and water to flow into the flashing and ultimately into your home.

Overhanging Tree Branches

Branches hanging over your roof can end up breaking off and leaves easily accumulate this time of year, don’t just assume they will blow off. They accumulate quickly, collecting more debris, scratch tiles, holding moisture and allowing algae to grow, and a host of other issues.
