If you own a home in Naples, FL and you’ve come to the conclusion that it’s time to repair or replace your roof, you’ll want to make sure you hire an experienced, reputable company. Since we tend to get a lot of questions from first-time homebuyers (and from snowbirds who have moved to the area from another region), below are just a few of the questions that we get the most.

Do I need to replace my roof if it’s leaking?

Maybe, maybe not.  There are times when even the best-installed roofs have been known to spring an occasional leak. In this case, the best thing to do is to call a local contractor (ASAP) and ask if they can provide you with a no-cost roof inspection. Once the inspection is complete the roofer you’re working with will provide you with a detailed report on their findings. They’ll let you know what the root of the problem is, the steps that need to be taken to fix it, and they’ll also give you a full breakdown of labor and materials costs.  If you can get by with roof repair, they’ll let you know. On the other hand, if your roof needs to be replaced, they’ll advise you on roof replacement timelines and next steps.

How often should I have my roof inspected?

Lots of people are concerned that roof inspections will be costly.  The good news is that when you hire a reputable contractor, this service will be free of cost.  The only thing it will cost you is your time.

Most experts agree that you should have your roof inspected at least twice per year: once in the spring and again in the fall.  You should also have your roof inspected after every major weather incident, including hurricanes, tropical storms, and storms that have sustained gale force winds. Why? Having your roof inspected will allow you to catch small problems before they have a chance to turn into larger ones.  Not only do smaller problems cost less to fix- addressing them right away will help ensure your roof lasts as long as possible.
