3 Smart Roofing Solutions for a Leak-Free Winter

By Stacy Mellete

While winter in Florida is generally milder than in other parts of the country, local homeowners can still experience a number of problems during these “cold” months. For starters, rain can be frequent after the occasional passage of a cold front. Freezing night temperatures and a wintry mix of rain and sleet can also occur during some winters in the Tampa Bay area.

As your primary protection against the elements, your roof needs to be in top shape all the time, especially during winter. Fortunately, Affordable Roofing Systems, the leading company for residential and commercial roofing in Tampa, FL, can help you get through the winter months without a hitch. Here are three smart roofing solutions we provide:

  • Roof Evaluation – Many homeowners don’t give their roofs a second thought until they notice leaks and other severe issues.  That’s why they end up unprepared during wet and cold seasons. To preserve the reliability of your roofing system, it’s smart to invest in roof evaluation at least twice a year, or after experiencing harsh weather.
    During these evaluations, we will look for visible signs of damage, including cracks, leaks, water spots, and rotten materials. We will also check for any issues that might be difficult to spot by an untrained eye. After making a report, we will discuss the recommended steps to prevent these issues from worsening.
  • Roof Repair – Excessive moisture can easily wear your shingles out, resulting in speedy deterioration. When you spot signs of damage, be sure to perform roof repairs in Tampa, FL, right away to avoid costlier problems. Doing this before winter sets in is ideal, as your roof will be able to handle harsh weather better without major holes and cracks.
  • Roof Replacement – Do not put off roof replacement if the damage on your existing system is beyond repair. As the leading roofing company in the region, Affordable Roofing Systems installs top-quality shingle roofing from GAF®, the country’s largest roofing manufacturer. We also offer metal and stone-coated roofing that can offer superior weather protection.
