One of the biggest maintenance expenses for most homeowners involves roof replacement, but determining if your home needs a new roof or roof repair in Sarasota can be quite confusing. We’d like to suggest several deciding factors to guide you in making the decision.
- Age. In Florida, asphalt shingle roofs last approximately 15 years due to the wet, hot climate. GAF has introduced new types of asphalt shingles which, if properly installed and maintained, may last longer. If your roof suffers from numerous leaks, possible roof damage and is nearing the 15-year mark, you will likely need to replace it.
- Number of roof layers. If your roof currently has two layers of shingles, roofing regulations dictate that we must completely tear off and replace the roof. This allows us to examine the condition of your roof deck and framing, and make repairs of rotted wood if necessary. If your roof has one layer, we may agree to reroof with a second shingle layer.
- Missing or torn shingles. Missing, torn or otherwise damaged shingles may be a sign of storm damage, or other roof problems. Poor roof ventilation can cause shingles to peel as the high heat and moisture trapped inside the attic “fry” shingles from underneath. Your roofing contractor can determine if you have enough intake and exhaust vents to stop this cycle.
- Storm damage. Hurricanes and smaller storms may cause devastating roof damage, or hidden yet dangerous damage that results in slow leaks. Following a storm, we recommend a professional roof inspection to determine if you have storm damage that requires roof replacement.
Consulting with our roofing contractors in Sarasota can help you determine whether your roof requires repair or a complete roof replacement.
