June marks the beginning of summer thunderstorms and hurricane season in South Florida. Is the roof over your head ready for storm conditions? If not, you could be setting yourself up for even greater structural damage to your home and added repair costs.
You might be thinking, “There’s nothing wrong with my roof, if there were I would’ve noticed it by now.” Well, that may be true I some cases, the leak can go unnoticed until it has exacted considerable damage on your home. There are a lot of routes water can take as it heads downward to its ultimate resting place. Sometimes that path goes behind walls where, although it goes unnoticed, it can do considerable damage, like causing rot and mold to form behind the walls.
Therefore, as your most valued asset, you’d want to make sure that your home’s roof hasn’t been structurally compromised. One to do this is to consult a list of reputable roofing companies and have them inspect your roof. Make sure that the contractor you hire is licensed and insured so that, in the event damage to your home is the direct result of poor workmanship, you can be compensated for the damages.
