Affordable Roofing: Roof Inspection Tips

By Stacy Mellete

Florida is known as the Sunshine State, so it’s warm most of the year. However, we Floridians still have to endure severe weather conditions like thunderstorms that bring strong winds and torrential rains. Furthermore, because of our relatively close proximity to the Atlantic, hurricanes can also pose a severe threat.

With unpredictable weather such as ours, homeowners should always be prepared. Your residential roofing in Tampa Bay and its surrounding communities should always be in top condition to be able to withstand tough climate conditions. Make it a point to regularly inspect and do maintenance work on your roof. This way, issues can be addressed before they grow into much bigger problems.

So how do you go about inspecting your roof for possible damage and/or leaks? Just do a quick walk around the house and look for these sure signs that your roofing in St Petersburg needs to be taken care of immediately:


  • Flashing damage, including cracked caulk or rust spots
  • Buckling, curling, blistering, missing, or broken shingles
  • Moss and algae growth


  • Water stains on roof decking
  • Discolored rafters or trusses
  • Water stains on the ceiling
  • Cracked or chipping paint
  • Peeling wallpaper
