A large part of the American dream is purchasing a home. For most Americans, their house is the largest and most important purchase they will ever make. To make sure your home lasts many generations for you and your family, you want to keep up with regular maintenance. Just like your automobile requires general maintenance to ensure it stays in the best possible condition, your home is no different. One area that is often ignored when it comes to maintaining your home is the roof. We often take our roofs for granted and just assume everything is ok with it, as most of our roof is out of sight from the ground level. While our roofs can stand up to a lot that mother nature throws at it, residential roof repair is inevitable. When you do need repair, you want to make sure you choose a roofing company that fixes things the right way and without breaking the bank. Chase Roofing is here to share some of the most common reasons you may need roof repair.
If you notice missing shingles or tiles on your roof, do not ignore them. Shingles and tiles protect the plywood on your roof from the harsh Florida elements, including the strong rays from the sun, and powerful storms. Missing tiles or shingles compromise the integrity of your roof, and should be replaced by a professional as soon as possible.
When strong storms come through, they tend to rip away tiles and shingles. These items are more than just decoration. They are the very pieces that keep the roof from collecting water or obtaining a leak. Without them, it’s easier for water to penetrate to original surface and expose any holes. Additionally, many homes lose their gutters or piping during a storm. These are the pieces that help keep water funnelling in a proper manner. The water then goes through drain spouts that keep the liquid from congregating around the base of the home.
Other problems for your roof include trees falling onto the roof, branches creating holes, or mold taking over the shingles. If a large storm has recently passed by your area, it is a good idea to give us a call to perform a roof inspection even if you don’t see any damage. Heavy storms can cause havoc to the integrity of your roof, and this damage may not be noticeable from a simple glance from the ground. Our professionally trained employees know exactly what to look for when examining your roof, and have the ability to notice problems that the untrained eye may overlook.
When it comes to roof repair, it is vital to address problems before they get worse. Roof problems can get expensive and out of control quickly. For this reason, when you notice a problem, it is a good idea to give Chase Roofing a call as soon as possible. For all of your roofing needs from residential to commercial, Chase Roofing has you covered.
