Roof replacement is a big decision. Homeowners usually have to save up for it or put other priorities on pause for a while to get it done sooner. With that in mind, nobody wants to do a full teardown and replace a Jacksonville roof unless the time is right. That means just in time to get maximum value from a new roof without risking that your current one will leak or fall apart next storm season.
When the weather cools down here in Jacksonville, many homeowners like to work on their to-do list around the house. Unfortunately, every year, a few enterprising souls get up on the roof. Thankfully, it’s been a while since we heard about anyone getting seriously hurt on a roof in Jacksonville. But it’s important to spread the word: DIY roof repairs just aren’t worth it.
When you think of a roof leak, you probably think of the ceiling damage and potential moisture infiltration first. These are the signs that get most people moving on roofing repair. Sometimes, your roof might spring a leak at an inconvenient time. Procrastinating for a while might look tempting if the leak isn’t that large. All in all, though, you are best off getting your roof inspected as soon as possible so the damage can be corrected.
When you ask children to draw a house, they usually pick out the same style: A classic gabled roof with a chimney. Most folks don’t have much reason to learn about residential roofing in detail. So, when they wonder whether their roof is secure, they think of the surface, too: The shingles. Your roof’s shingles are crucial to its performance, but there’s a lot more to a roofing system!
When you buy a new roofing system for your home, you want it to last. Unfortunately, it’s not always easy to figure out the best way to care for your roof and make sure that happens. Conflicting commentary by roofing manufacturers, contractors, and even government agencies can leave Jacksonville homeowners confused on the best way to minimize residential roof repair.
