Your roof can be worry-free for decades with a little TLC. Here are some tips from our expert Oviedo roofers about when to have the professionals take a look.
Unless you see shingles on the ground, you probably don’t pay much attention to your roof. But when you do need Oviedo roofers, who do you call? And how do you know when it’s time to bring the experts in? Our team at Advantage Roofing is here to share some warning signs that you could need roof repair.
After A Big Storm
You may not see shingles on the ground, but after a heavy rain, wind, or hail event, Oviedo roofers can tell you if your roof sustained any damage. Look on the ground for a pepper-like substance. These are shingle granules and they coat your shingles and give them a layer of protection.
Wind, rain, and hail can slough off this layer and send it through your downspouts and onto the ground. Only an expert roof repair team can tell you if your shingles are damaged enough to need replacement.
Storms can bring damaging winds that wreak havoc on your trees, causing limbs to break and fall onto your roof. If you see limbs on the ground, they could have damaged your roof as they fell. It’s best to have Oviedo roofers see what damage the limbs may have caused.
When you’re buying a home, it’s standard practice to hire a home inspector to make sure everything in the house is up to code and working properly. A home inspector may also take a quick peek at the roof to check for obvious signs of damage.
At Advantage Roofing, we recommend that you also hire a professional roof inspector to take a closer look. We can spot damage or potential problems that a general home inspector may miss.
Our roof inspection team will give you a thorough evaluation of the roof by looking at it from above and below. And by below, we mean the attic. We will inspect the joists, underlayment, and every nook and cranny of your roof, then provide you with an inspection report that you can take to your realtor or use to adjust your offer.
It’s also a good idea to have your roof inspected regularly so that small issues don’t turn into big ones.
