Roof Maintenance During Hurricane Season

 

Hurricane season is in full swing.  Even though Fort Lauderdale has enjoyed a relatively quiet season so far this year, it is expected to last until the end of November.  Category 5 hurricane winds can blow in excess of 156 mph, causing significant damage to your roof.  Preparing your home for a possible hurricane in South Florida should be a priority for all homeowners. Maintaining your roof can help protect you, your home, and your belongings from storm damage.  Many insurers offer discounts on homeowner’s insurance if the homeowner takes necessary precautions to protect their home from hurricane damage.  Roof maintenance can save you money and aggravation when dealing with storm damage.

Some steps to prevent hurricane damage are relatively simple.  Be sure to remove all leaves and moss from your roof, clean the gutters, and trim any overhanging branches to help manage falling debris.  K & C Roof Maintenance offers pressure washing services guaranteed to get rid of any unwanted branches, leaves, and dirt.  Pressure cleaning not only reduces the chances of random objects damaging your roof; it adds a tremendous amount of curb appeal to your home.

Making sure your roof is not leaking is imperative as a storm can transform a small leak into a large headache for you.  Dark staining on your ceiling or peeling paint on the underside of your roof overhanging are a few easily spotted signs indicative of a possible leak.  You can check on the condition of your roof yourself, but a reputable roofing contractor is always the safest way to make sure your roof is in top form.

Consulting a reputable roofing contractor, like the experts at K & C Roof Maintenance, is a good idea because an untrained eye can easily miss other signs of roof damage.  Hiring a professional saves you the hassle of breaking out the ladder and assessing any possible damage yourself.  Another advantage to utilizing the expertise of K & C Roof Maintenance is the peace of mind you receive knowing that your roof has been inspected, repaired, and maintained by experts specializing in South Florida roof maintenance and repair.
