Keep Your Roof in Good Shape with an Inspection

Many people move to Fort Lauderdale to enjoy the warm weather. However, the weather isn’t always friendly to everything. Between the rain, wind and sweltering heat, your roof takes a tremendous amount of punishment. But the truth is most people take their roofs for granted until there’s a problem. Don’t wait for a leak or damage to occur. There are preventative measures every homeowner can take to make sure your roof lasts a long time.

Although the roof isn’t your home’s foundation, it may be the most important part of your house. The best way to avoid roof repairs is taking a proactive approach when it comes to maintenance. Be vigilant about inspecting your roof’s condition, particularly before the rainy season. Don’t try climbing on top of the roof on your own. Unless you’re a professional, it’s best to call a reputable roofing company to perform an inspection. During the process the roofing inspectors will take certain things into consideration.

The first factor is the age of the age of your house. With proper maintenance, the life of a roof can easily go 20 years or more with just minor repairs. But some problems are tougher to spot than others. Water damage usually doesn’t show up right away. In many instances, deterioration takes place behind the scenes until the visible signs of damage begin to appear. Ceiling stains and signs of mold may start to show up where there is a saturation of water.  Other visible signs of water damage include flaking paint or paper peeling away from the walls.

There are other subtle signs of roof damage that are difficult to spot. For example, your higher energy bills can be an indicator of roof decline. Leaks in the roof can cause more warm air to infiltrate the home, causing your air conditioning unit to work harder. It’s important to be aware of your roof’s condition before the hurricane or rainy season. If you haven’t made the proper preparations, it’s never too late. Before you know it, hurricane season will begin again.

A simple roof inspection can make a huge difference. The longer you keep putting it off, the greater the chance of a problem. Remember, there’s a fine line between a simple repair and a roof replacement. But if you find yourself in the position where your roof problems are getting worse and your energy bills are rising, it’s time to consult the experts at K&C Roof Maintenance to evaluate your roof’s overall condition.
