Roofing Maintenance: 3 Common Problems and Their SolutionsBy Stacy Mellete
The roof is one of the most neglected areas of your home. That’s why you might never notice damage to it until it’s too late. Whether the signs are obvious or subtle, however, it is important to stay informed of their causes, so that you’ll know how to fix or avoid them, as needed.

Leaks and the Resulting Moisture Damage
Roof leaks affect any type of roof and can stem from a number of causes, including old age, poor workmanship, and heavy storms. Whatever the cause, water seeping into your home through the roof is never a good sign. You’ll need to call us for an inspection right away. This way we can identify the source/s and patch them up before the damage spreads.
Blow-Offs and Reduced Wind Uplift Resistance
The Tampa Bay area is a great place to live and work, but being on the Gulf of Mexico, tropical storms and strong winds are rather common occurrences. These forces of nature can wreak significant damage to your roof in terms of blow-offs and a reduced resistance to the elements. That’s why we offer the best in storm damage restoration in Tampa, FL, and its nearby areas.
This usually means your gutters are not functioning as expected. It can be a serious problem, since even a one-inch deep pond can weigh up to 5.2 lbs. and add extra strain on the roof’s framework. In addition, water ponds can a breeding ground for pests and insects.
The biggest challenge with this problem is that it can remain unnoticeable until the damage becomes widespread. That’s why we recommend emergency roof inspections after winter and every major storm. We will be able to proffer the best solution only after we have examined the extent of the damage and the state of your gutters.
