Understanding the basics can help ensure your roof functions properly. Here are a few of the most frequently asked questions we receive from our clients.
How will I know my roof needs to be replaced?
Inspect your roof, look for any curled or missing shingles, and for any loose granules. Also look for any signs of damage or wear and tear around the chimney, vents, flashing and valleys. Look inside the attic for any water damage or discoloration on the ceiling. Just because you find a leak, it doesn't necessarily mean the entire roof needs replacing. If you have any questions when inspecting your roof, feel free to contact Schick Roofing.
Will my roof last longer if I have light colored shingles?
Though lighter color shines don't attract as much heat as darker colored shingles, as long as the roof is well ventilated it should have a long life span. Today's technology is leading the way roofing materials that have a longer lifespan, energy friendly, can withstand Central Florida's extreme weather, they can even keep you and your family safe during a disaster.
When is the best time to have my roof replaced?
Typically the cooler months in Central Florida are the best time to have your roof repaired or replaced. Though a roof can be successfully installed any time of year, fall and winter months in Central Florida tend to be a dryer time of year, keeping your roof dry during installation, lending to a longer lifespan.
With routine maintenance, the average roof in Orlando should have a life span between 20 and 25 years. It is important to regularly inspect your roof and repair any damages before they become big problems. As a roof ages, severe weather and poor installation, can all cause costly problems.
