Roofing Maintenance Program: Be Sure to Have One Before SummerBy Stacy Mellete
With summer and accompanying thunderstorms fast approaching in Tampa Bay areas and most parts of Florida, the focus tends to shift from indoors to outdoors.
And if you’re considering sparing a little time, money,and tender-loving-care for your home, remember that renovations should meet real needs like outdated electrical systems, defective plumbing or drainage, and nagging roof issues – not just to improve the look of your home.
Having decided on that, don’t delay. Many roofing contractors in Clearwater FL are already facing more work ahead than most of them can handle.
To speed up the process, you may want to check your roof yourself with a little help from this article:
Rain compounds the problem. Each leak permits moisture to seep in. Add the cumulative effects of mold and mildew and your roof eventually develops rot that weakens the wood below.
You especially want to avoid a rot-weakened roof if you live in hurricane, tornado or earthquake prone areas.
To prolong your roof’s life, keep it clean and clear of debris and patch when and where necessary.
Repeated signs of wear and tear and mounting roof repair bills can help you gauge when the roof should be replaced rather than simply patched.
Which roof you choose is a matter of taste, style and affordability.
