Fall in Cape Coral is the perfect time for homeowners to give their roofs some good love and care. The wet summer will be easing into dryer conditions, perfect for roof inspections and repairs.
Trademark Roofing’s years of honest expertise in the Cape Coral area puts us in a good position to share what the most common Fall roofing problems are in Cape Coral. Below we list a few of them.
Remnants of storm damage and continuing leaks
There is a high chance that the Summer rains and storms may have caused some damage, even if you haven’t noticed anything yet. Then on the other hand, there may be existing leaks that need to be tended to. Fall is the perfect time to give all those leaks a thorough assessment.
The dryer weather makes them easier to identify, and more importantly, easier to fix them up. We suggest getting your local Cape Coral roofing contractor in during the Fall to assess all potential damage and advise on the best way forward, rather than addressing the problem after it’s gotten a whole lot bigger by next Summer.
Gutters should be monitored regardless of the seasons, but Fall is the best time to assess leakages and damages to your gutters, and we recommend replacing them as soon as you identify any issues. It’s important to note that if this isn’t dealt with hastily, it can and will directly impact the health of your roof by contributing to water and debris build-up, which can become problematic.
Depending on the age of your roof, the sun’s rays can significantly impact the state of your roof. There’s no escaping the sun, and Cape Coral gets so much of it for most of the year. It’s all fun and games, but unfortunately over time it is bound to affect your roof. Shingle roofing, for example, can dry out and crack, and will eventually need to be replaced should the damage reach such an extent that they fall off or break.
Flat roofing too, depending on the material with which it is made, may suffer cracks and warps. This is why it’s best to get your local Cape Coral roofing service provider to do regular inspections on your roof so that damages can be fixed immediately.
Algae and moss growth
Never underestimate the harm these seemingly harmless growths can cause. If left unchecked, moss and algae can spread to the point of damaging your roof’s structure and even the structure beneath. Professional roofers will be able to tell you when the growth has reached that point where intervention is required.
