Get Ahead of Seasonal Storms
After a hard rain or storm, it’s pretty common for leaks to occur. It can be due to many different reasons, but one thing is for sure, once the water comes in, you need to get the issue fixed.
But what a lot of home and commercial building owners may not think about is the fact that you can get work done before major damage occurs that can be expensive to repair.
Let’s look at what happens to your structure when water is already getting through. One, mold can grow extremely fast, especially in the South Florida climate. Once your drywall and furniture gets mold spores on it, it can be costly to mitigate.
The wood and structure of your building can also begin to rot when water leaks through your roof, especially when you aren’t aware of the issue.
A good place to start is with your eyes. Look for signs of wear, any missing or damage shingles or dark spots on the roof. If you think something doesn’t look right, get it inspected right away before the problem gets worse.
If it has been over a decade since you’ve had any work done on your roof, then it is time to get it inspected. A good evaluation will help you not only get a better understanding of the condition of your roof, but you can also get expert advice on what is the best course of action for your specific situation.
