Roof Leaks

No matter what kind of roofing material you have, a leak is one of the most crucial problems that you can encounter. Roof leaks could be caused by a number of different things, but the two most common causes of a leak are joint damage and flashing damage.

  • Joints are located between the roofing and a chimney, or between two sloped sections of a roof. The joints of your roofing are highly susceptible to leaks.
  • Flashing is, simply put, a name for a number of different waterproofing materials. It’s used where anything comes up and out of your roofing, like a chimney, pipes, or vent stacks, to prevent water from seeping into these areas. Flashing can become weak or damaged over time, and areas with flashing may become vulnerable spots where ran can seep in underneath shingles. If flashing problems are caught early enough, the flashing can be resealed. If they’re allowed to develop, you may need extensive repairs or a totally new roof installed.

Weather Damage

Roofs are specifically designed to withstand harsh weather without sustaining damage, but because they’re the first line of defense that your home has against weather, they’re the first thing to be damaged during a storm. Since the 2018 Hurricane Season officially begins tomorrow, June 1, this is the perfect time to have a free roof inspection performed by RRSA Vero Beach to make sure your roof is healthy and ready to take on any storm that arrives in South Florida.

Of course, weather damage could happen over a long period of time, or it could happen all at once, but your South Florida home’s roof can be drastically damaged by storms. If shingles become loose during a storm, wind can easily slip in and pull them up. After that, many other parts of your roofing become very vulnerable to damage.
