Common Roof Problems

Ventilation

Ventilation of the attic and roof is an important part of making sure that your roof lasts. Ventilation naturally occurs when there are vents placed at the base of the roof and near the top of the roof. Naturally, warm air rises, requiring no mechanical process to create the air movement. Proper ventilation helps to regulate temperature along with moisture levels in the attic. Without proper ventilation, moisture and heat can build up in the space, causing damage to shingles, insulation, rafters and more. All of this can also increase your energy/utility costs each month. Mildew and mold is also common in homes that do not have proper attic/roofing ventilation.

Storm Damage

When it comes to living in the Florida Panhandle, storm damage is a very real threat. Between the hail, rain, heavy winds and even hurricanes, it is important to make sure your roof is in tip-top shape following these events. Following weather events, we recommend a roofing inspection, this can help to locate any problem areas. When filing an insurance claim, it is important to do it as quickly as possible so you don’t end up having to pay for these damages out of your own pocket.

Flashing Problems 

Flashing is used in certain areas such as vent pipes, chimneys, sky lights, HVAC systems, etc. where the roof has been penetrated. When flashing is installed poorly or becomes damaged, it leads to open seams and reduced puncture resistance.
