Tallahassee roof maintenanceHere at Space Age roofing we know that when it comes to making sure your home is looking good and functioning properly there are many jobs you can easily do yourself and there are some others with a little help and instructions you can tackle as well. On the other side, there are some jobs that are better left to the professionals. For instance, you should probably call a pro for anything that involves electricity. In addition, anything that involves your roof you should definitely leave to a Tallahassee roof maintenance expert.
Its not that you cant do it, but there is a level of experience and knowledge that is required to detect and create a plan of attack. Needless to say, your roof protects you from a lot of things and it should be handled by the experts. One of the hardest things that some inexperienced roofers get wrong is hail damage. Depending on the size of the hail that hit your roof it may just look like a ding on your shingles or even dirt. Your roof is built to withstand a lot of things, but it doesn't fair well when you have a large amount of quarter-sized ice or larger falling from high altitudes hitting the same area over and over. Hail is not strong enough to create a large hole, but it strong enough to puncture your shingles and the layers below it and thats where the trouble begins. If this should go undetected and unfixed for a long amount of time your roof will wear down a lot faster and it will cause you a major problem going forward. All this just from what some might think is just a small ding in their shingles.
A lot of our clients inherit old roofs by way of buying an older house or living in a house that has not had regular maintenance on it. Your roof on average should last anywhere from 20-30 years depending on where you live and the storms that may come and go. We had a client ask us. I have a couple of missing shingles, would you call that roof damage? The short answer is Yes. We consider roof damage as anything that can compromise the integrity of your roof. On the other hand, if you were outside and saw a shingle fly off or become loose that is not the worst case scenario unless its a major wind storm. In this situation, if not dealt with shortly that missing shingle will eventually allow water to get below the other shingles and will loosen them and penetrate the layers beneath.
Often when you have roof damage you may also have other problems that come along with that. For instance, in some cases, you may have exterior damage as well. We not only can take care of your roofing problems, but we can also replace your windows for you.

On top of that, it can increase the value of your home. Now that sounds like a reason to take a second look at those windows.
