Roofing contractors can make sure things are in good repair up there, as with this time of year there are destructive forces that directly affect the roof and a building’s protective envelope, which works “24/7 365” protecting and absorbing all the exterior weather elements and punishment year round, with timely inspection maybe these types of problems can be discovered, and maybe, just maybe in the cards will be just a “little minor” roofing repair “versus major or costly” roofing repair here’s an example of the latter, something like carpentry repair or “rotted wood” the common lingo and how most folks might go about describing the topic, professionally this writer would say something like, damaged structural area’s. Early detection is the best proactive step to determine the current condition of the roof ahead of time to find out if there is a need for roof maintenance service or roofing repair.
Roofing repair and maintenance
Roofing replacement is one thing but roofing repair is another. Here in Jacksonville Florida which is where this writer operates locally in the 32225 zip code located in north east upper portion of the state Florida, weather is a real mixed bag and ranges from winter to summer with freezing temps and scorching hot and dry periods in the summer season to violent storms that produce heavy rain high winds and even hail also tornadoes and certainly this article is not complete without the obligatory mention of the dreaded and destructive force known as the hurricane if one of these passes through depending on the category the damage can range from complete roof loss and failure to at a minimum some major to minor roofing repair.
Since this area of operation for James Neill roofing and roofing repair is in north east Florida the focus of what types of roofing issues to be considered when preparing for the summer season are directed at the Jacksonville Florida metropolitan area but these will apply with variations in other locales in the US and for that matter around the world, when it comes to roofing it is for sure a world wide product and of course the fascination is there for this writer as to the structures in Europe and China, Japan, as well as other far flung countries where roofers have been at work for hundreds if not thousands of years and the amazing elevations, styles and installation methods of roof design and roofing repair.
So here in Jacksonville some suggestions are to at a minimum hire a licensed Florida state roof or roofing repair contractor to do an annual roofing inspection this can be just a surface roof top inspection and can also involve the attic interior as well as exterior siding or stucco that may have evidence of a looming water intrusion issue and inspection is a good first step especially if a building owner is not able or comfortable getting on the roof an important point to highlight is most falls occur around 3 feet of elevation or less so it is a dangerous endeavor for inexperienced or experienced roofing professionals alike falling off a roof is the number one hazard.
Winter is over and what should be checked is the effects of winter freezes and thaws on the roofing system and if damage has happened with the expansion and contractions cause by freezes and sudden warmups that repeat constantly for about 4 to 5 months beginning around October 31st that stretches into the first 2-3 weeks in march.
Area’s to check are plant deposits leaves and such that pile up on the roof surface fill gutters and if left in place decompose where they landed and cause rotting of the roof coverings and result in roof leaks and possible insect infestation for example carpenter ants or any insects for that matter just love a nice pile of leaves left in a valley for a couple of seasons it is the perfect place for a colony and the plant and leaf pile with locked in moisture are perfect to attract them so cleaning up this stuff yearly if needed can save some money and prevent a costly roofing repair. Loose fasteners can cause flashing’s to become dislodged or nails can back out of wood and puncture a hole in the roof coverings and then a small leak can get going it takes a while but if neglected can grow and cause the roofing system to fail at a minimum in that area thus needing roofing repair.
Sealants need to be checked as well they eventually dry out or crack and may require a re seal where observed also can vents get damaged from tree branches or pipe vents such as lead boots can get chewed on by squirrels and then the possible leak can take place just to name a few. Skylights the chimneys and their metal caps even roof top satellite dish’s are good places to check on a roof and the condition of these roof top components can change from season to season which in roofing could be considered fairly rapid.
By checking the roof an important step and course of action for extending the life span and functional protection it provides for the building has been implemented this is a proactive approach towards building ownership or management that will pay dividends. Hopefully this has been an informative read making a point that a little advanced preparation can extend the life of the roof system and avoid the need for costly roofing repair.
