Knowing when to call Apopka roof repair experts is simple with a few tips. Here, our team at Advantage Roofing shares the most common reasons our customers reach out.
You probably don’t have your roofing company on your “favorite contacts” list but you should know who to call when you need roof work done. Our Apopka roof repair team at Advantage Roofing is available to assist you with all of your roofing needs. The most frequent calls we get from our customers have to do with the following issues.
Age Of Your Roof
If your roof is over 20 years old, it’s time to have our team at Advantage Roofing see if you need some repairs. You should have your roof inspected every few years to head off any big issues, but the older your roof is, the more often you should get it checked out.
Our roof inspection team will give your roof a thorough evaluation and provide you with an inspection report that you can take to your home insurance agent. We offer free estimates on repairs or re-roof projects, so you’ll know exactly what to expect when we work on your roof.
Keep in mind that some roofing materials have a longer life than others. Tile shingles, for example, can last over 50 years. Asphalt shingles, on the other hand, aren’t quite as durable (they are more cost-effective, however), so you may need a roof repair or replacement sooner with asphalt shingles than with tile.
Either way, it’s a good idea to have us assess your roof from time to time so that we can help you head off any potential problems.
Perhaps the most common reason our Apopka roof repair team is called out for a roof evaluation is that a storm has just blown through and a homeowner thinks there may be damage to his roof.
Storms in Florida can be severe, especially during hurricane season, so it’s important that you stay vigilant after each storm and look for these signs of potential damage:
Limbs on the ground – These limbs likely hit your roof as they fell and they may have caused damage. If you see limbs on your roof or on the ground give us a call right away.
Shingle granules under downspouts – These granules can look like pepper and will wash off of your shingles into your gutters, and fall to the ground under your downspouts. If you see piles of granules, it could mean that your shingles are vulnerable to water damage.
Gutter damage – When storms damage your gutters, you’ll see water draining in places that are away from your downspouts. If water is not draining properly, it can collect on your roof and weaken the shingles.
It’s better to be safe than sorry after a storm. Have our team of Apopka roof repair experts determine if you need any repairs or if your roof needs to be replaced due to wind, water, or hail damage.
When you notice a drip, drip, drip inside your home, it could mean that you have roof damage. Leaks can also be caused by air conditioner or plumbing issues, but to know for sure, have our Apopka roof repair team look for any signs of water in your attic. If your roof has sustained damage or has thin spots due to age, water can seep in and make its way to your ceiling.
If a severe storm has recently come through your area, a leak could be the result of storm damage to your roof. We can find that damage and offer a free estimate on any repairs that are needed.
