Whether it be a simple repair, maintenance, or a roofing installation, no job is too big or too small!
Roofing Repairs And Maintenance
With so much else going on, roofing repairs often get overlooked or go unnoticed. Unfortunately, simple roofing repairs can grow into larger, more expensive problems. Here are a few of the most common roofing repairs, and why maintenance is vital.
Roof leaks are the most common, and in most cases, the easiest roofing issue to repair. Florida’s hot temperatures and tropical downpours increase the likelihood of a crack or break in your roofing system. Unfortunately, unless the leak is very obvious, it may go unnoticed for some time, and can lead to some serious damage. With the integrity of your roofing structure at risk, if you suspect a leak, call our team sooner rather than later.
Your roofing shingles may fall victim to the elements, leaving them torn or broken. Damaged shingles require repair or replacement if your roofing system is to remain protected. A roof inspection from a residential roofer will determine the extent of the damage and the best course of action.
Flashing is a sheet of metal found near joints in your roof designed to keep water out. The temperature causes a natural contraction and expansion of the building. Unfortunately, these movements, no matter how small, cause the protection to grow brittle and eventually crack. Whether your flashing has cracked due to temperature or loosened on account of improper installation, your roofing system is exposed either way and needs to be repaired.
Spending less on repairs does not necessarily mean that you are saving money. Repairs on your residential roof using low-quality labor or materials can end up costing more down the road. Failed repairs may cause further damage to your roofing system, increasing initial costs and frustration. Not only can these lead to leaks, they can also compromise your entire roofing system, making a professional repair a priority!
While all the above roofing issues can develop over time or from a specific incident, regular maintenance can prevent them from growing and causing further damage. Regular maintenance by a licensed residential roofer will ensure that no leaks go unnoticed, and no unnecessary money is spent fixing unnecessary damage.
ABC Roofing is able to install the following roofing options:
Shingles are versatile and can work on almost any type of roofing. They are available in a range of styles and colors, making it easy for your dream home aesthetic to become a reality. Offering higher performance for a lower cost, the materials used to create shingles make this a cost-effective and energy-efficient option for your home. Shingles save you money by being durable, lasting up to 20 years, and are easy to install.
Roofing tiles are available in various colors and shapes. Usually made from fire-resistant clay or concrete, it is no surprise that roofing tiles are durable and energy-efficient. While they are a more expensive option, they can last between 20- 25 years.
Flat membrane Roofing
While flat membrane roofing is traditionally found on commercial buildings, it is growing in popularity among residential homeowners with a flat roof. Flat membrane roofing has a list of benefits, among them durability and resistance to outdoor elements, fire, and chemicals. Lasting anywhere between 20-30 years, the materials used to create this roofing option are also eco-friendly.
Depending on the type of metal used, a roof made from metal can last between 40-70 years! Metal roofing can withstand strong winds and is not at risk of corrosion. By reflecting heat, a metal roof can help cut cooling costs by 10-25%, making it an energy-efficient and eco-friendly option. While only some of its materials are recycled, at the end of its lifespan, a metal roofing system is 100% recyclable.
