Homeowners understand the importance of caring for and maintaining their roofing systems. If you care for your roof, the materials will last for decades, if not longer. On the other hand, if your roof has one or more maintenance issues, and you fail to address them promptly, the lifespan of your roof can be shortened significantly. Below are just a few of the more common roof repair problems in Naples, FL.

Faulty installation

In our previous blogs we’ve discussed the importance of choosing a licensed, insured, experienced roofer. Remember, if you need roof repair or roof replacement, the cheapest bid isn’t always the “best” bid. If you cut corners on the front end of a repair because you’re hoping to save some money, as time goes on, you could find out you’ve hired an inexperienced contractor.  Inexperienced contractors (especially those who don’t have a lot of experience or know-how when it comes to working with the types of materials you have atop your home) often make mistakes—and these mistakes can turn out to be costly. If you hire a company based on price alone, and their work is faulty, the cost to fix what wasn’t done right can be substantial.

Unwanted tenants

Birds and squirrels are cute, but you don’t want them to make your roof their home. Animals have been known to cause quite a bit of damage to peoples’ roofing systems. If you have questions about the types of animals that tend to do this in your area. Or you’d like more information about the signs that you might have unwanted tenants, be sure to speak with a local roofing contractor.

You have a pond on your roof

Have you noticed that water ponds have started to form on your roof after storms? If so, you’ll want to contact roofing contractors to schedule an inspection. When water pools on your roof, this holds moisture against the top of your house. Water ponds can not only damage your roofing materials, they can also cause damage to your home. Reputable roofers perform this service for free, so there’s no reason for you to put an inspection off.
