How to get your St. Augustine roof to last longer

One fact that remains constant when it comes to your St. Augustine home is that your roof is the most important element, and yet many people often forget about it. This is a critical area that if damage occurs and is not addressed properly the cost for repairs could be staggering. People don’t recognize that if damage happens to this area and is not taken care of quickly it can secretly find its way into your home and by the time you realize there is a problem you have ceilings, walls and possibly even personal items that are destroyed.

This in turn can also become a serious health issue as well as moisture and mildew can turn into mold that can have a negative effect on you. To avoid this the certified experts at the Fidus Group want you to consider doing the following things at least once a year.

First of all you need to do a good inspection, and if you are unsure of how or what to look for find an expert to  take a look at it for you. When looking this area over it is important that you look for shingles that are lost, loose, bent or cracked. You will also want to look at any flashing that is no longer sealed and check to see if your eaves are free and clear of debris.Failing to do these things can be costly.

Secondly you will want to find an expert that is certified, such as the Fidus Group, that knows what they are doing and has been able to hold up to the requirements of a manufacturer warrantee.
