The importance of checking out your St. Augustine roof for damage and repairs

With winter just around the corner it is more important than ever to make sure that your St. Augustine home roof is in the best condition possible. This means that it is necessary for you to either check out your roof, or have a certified expert like the professionals at the Fidus Group assist you. If this is something that you want or think you can do on your own there are a couple of important things you should know.

First of all it is critical that you get up and close with your St. Augustine roof. Inspecting for potential damage is not something that you will want to take lightly and doing it from a distance is not going to be an effective strategy.

Second of all you will want to watch particularly for leaks or spotting of the ceilings inside your home. This is a good indication that there is something happening on your roof. Then once you are on your roof you will want to look for shingles that are curled, missing  or cracked. Is there any mold or moss growth, has there been a penetration of the shingles or roof deck, is there a loss of any asphalt shingles? These are all indications that there is a potential problem that could lead to damage inside your home that can cost thousands of dollars.

In addition to this, moisture inside these areas can also cause health problems. Don’t let this happen to you.
