Here in Polk County, we are enjoying our mild spring temperatures, but keeping a wary eye on the skies because we know the rainy season is soon to follow. With the rainy season come daily afternoon showers, often heavy, and sometimes accompanied by a storm with thunder, lightening, and strong gusts of wind. While you might be concerned about your tender trees and plants that you have tended over the spring months, you probably don't give a lot of thought to your house. After all, it's built to last, right?
If you haven't had your roof checked out recently, that could be a costly assumption.
Your roof is meant to last longer than many other components of your home (say, your appliances for example), but that doesn't mean it will last forever without any maintenance or replacements. Typically, a roof will hold strong for approximately 20-25 years, possibly with occasional maintenance needed like replacing a shingle or two, or patching a small leak. Once that time is up though, your roof could begin to encounter more problems, and with a leaky roof, one small problem can turn into a HUGE issue if you don't take care of it promptly and efficiently. Having your roof inspected and repaired periodically is a much better alternative. By doing this, you ensure that your roof has no unseen issues going unnoticed, and any problems found can be patched and taken care of while they are still minor, and that means you cut out the risk of water damage, and having to replace your roof (and possibly other parts of your home) as a whole.
Williams Construction Company can come out and evaluate your roof and the overall structure of your home. If we see issues with missing or loose singles, cracks, leaks, or other damage, we will let you know, and give you our honest opinion of your best course of action. Often, the problem is something we can fix and have your roof ready to withstand the Central Florida rainy season in no time. However, if we can't fix the issue or the problem has become too large to patch, we take care of completely redoing your roof and replacing it with the highest quality of materials.
When the skies are gray, we are here. Give us a call and let us make sure you aren't left out in the rain!
