Protect your Roofing by Conducting Periodic Inspections

By Neil Hirsh Subscribe to RSS | May 30th 2012 | Views:

Miami, Florida is known for its tropical weather which makes it ideal for cruising. It has been dubbed the “Cruise Capital of the world,” as it houses some of the world's largest resorts and accommodates many cruise ships. However, along with its humid summers and warm winters, comes the occasional heavy rainfall and thunderstorms. Heavy rainfall and thunderstorms generally occur around May to October.

While rain and thunderstorms can easily dampen one’s style, especially if one is fond of enjoying activities that are meant for sunny days, it is easy to overlook the fact that Miami homeowners need to protect their houses from inclement weather and fluctuating temperatures. Roofs, in particular, require special maintenance procedures to maintain their viability. Thus, it is important to pinpoint the signs of wear on roofs and take the necessary steps to prevent damage from occurring.

When properly installed and maintained, roofs generally last up to ten years. However, gradual wear can be expected, especially when there are drastic weather changes experienced in the area of residence. Thus, it is recommended that roof inspections be done at least twice a year to ensure that the roof is structurally sound and to repair any damage. For extensive damage, roof replacement may be needed.

Roofing contractors will look out for many tell-tale signs of damage when they are inspecting roofs. Among these signs are sagging roof decks; leaking (look out for dark spots and trails as these indicate leaking and, if not fixed properly, may cause further damage); cracked, torn, bald, or missing shingles; loose materials or wear around vents, pipes, or chimneys (if any); as well as loose sand-like granules from shingles in the gutters. Other signs of wear include mould, rot, or moisture; exposed nail heads through shingles; debris in gutters and downspouts; as well as blocked drainage systems.

If you notice at least one of these signs of wear after your roof inspection, then it is time to call a professional roofing company that has the needed skills and proper equipment to fix the damage. Be sure to contact a Miami roofer that can provide you with quality repairs and replacement services.

As an area prone to inclement weather, the list of roofers Miami offers is extensive. It is important to choose a contractor who can guarantee quality services. This is because properly installed roofs will provide protection for your house for many years to come.

There are lots of Miami roofers that offer their services so be sure to do background checks on the company. Also, pay close attention to the company representatives you meet when you discuss your needs. To know more about roofing repair and maintenance, please visit
