High winds, hail, and strong storms can cause damage to our roofs, but what about winter weather conditions? Even in Florida, it can be quite hard on your roof. If not addressed, ice, freezing, thawing, and snow can all cause problems that can lead to expensive roofing repairs. All Star Roofing will be tackling Florida roof repairs this winter.
These are five problems that your roof might face.
Condensation in the Attic
Make sure your attic has adequate ventilation to prevent condensation from forming. Poor ventilation can also reduce the roof’s lifespan and invalidate the warranty.
Leakages can occur if you have a roof that has dormers, skylights, chimneys, or walls. Flashings are metal strips that are placed along your roof’s walls, eaves, and rakes as well as around your chimneys and skylights. You can inspect your flashings from above to check for any leaks. All Star Roofing can inspect your roof if you suspect something is wrong.
Wind speeds can cause shingles to become loose or damaged if they are too high. Contact us immediately if you notice missing or loose shingles. We can replace them before further damage occurs.
Large oaks and pines can dump tons of leaves on your roof. This can cause serious damage if it rots. To protect your family and home, trim any branches that are within six feet of your roof. This will prevent squirrels and other animals, such as birds, from climbing onto your roof and chewing into your attic in search of spring nesting.
