As we’ve noted many times in the past, your roofing system is among the most important components of your home. You can think of roof care as in the same way you think of caring for your car. If you suspect there’s a problem, you’ll want to get it checked out, and if repairs need to be made, it’s best to do it promptly. If you don’t, small problems can turn into big problems; and big problems are always more expensive to deal with.
For this blog post we wanted to highlight several things that can damage homeowners’ roofing materials in SWFL.
Moisture and leaks
Southwest Florida is undoubtedly humid—and if you start to notice your roof is “going green,” you’ll want to speak with a local contractor. Although moss most commonly grows in yards and on trees, if it begins to grow on your roof, it’s going to do a lot of damage. Why? Because moss will hold moisture against your roofing materials. Imagine you left a wet towel on your hardwood floors for a few months- and each day, your toddler poured another glass of water onto it. Over time, the constant moisture would wreak havoc on your floors and eventually, they’d be damaged to the point of no return. Moss does something similar to your roofing materials. Suffice to say, if your roof is starting to look a bit green, you’ll want to have your roof inspected ASAP.
Putting off maintenance
Does it look like one or more of the tiles on your roof are damaged? Was your roof struck by flying debris in a recent storm, and you’re concerned that its integrity has been damaged? Call a local roofing company. Reputable roofing companies in Naples, FL will be happy to provide you with a free roof inspection. While the contractor is there, he’ll check your roof for damage and he’ll let you know if any repairs need to be made. Again- it’s easier (and less expensive) to fix small problems before the small problems become bigger.
