Florida homes and roofs are subject to severe weather conditions such as storms and hurricanes. You need to build roofs that can withstand nature’s fury. However, your roofs are bound to sport some damage when it is subject to these severe weather conditions year after year. Roof shingles will go missing after some time and your roof will start leaking because of rotten wood or a fallen tree on the roof causing damage.
Depending on the type of roofing on your house, your roof may have reached the natural end of its lifespan. Different roofing systems — shingle roofing, slate roofing, metal roofing, synthetic tile roofing, clay tile roofing — have different lifespans ranging from 12 years to 25 years. If your house needs a new roof, we at Aspen Diversified have decades of experiencing in removing and replacing an existing roof. The new roof construction should be completed sooner rather than later to preserve the resale value of your home not to mention its aesthetics as the roof is what gives visitors the first impression of your house even before entering it.
The humid Florida weather is one of many reasons why your roof can crumble, blister, or leak. Algae, moss, mold, and mildew are leading causes of roof decay. If moss lands on your roof after a rain storm, it would continue to grow due to moisture. The growing moss will eventually lead to roof decay, holes and leaks.
Annual roof checks by professionals is a must to ensure that no moss, mold, mildew, or algae growth is happening on your roof.
Roof Leaks And Moisture
We have decades of experience repairing roof leaks which can occur for a number of reasons including normal wear and tear, damage from the harsh Florida weather, or faulty installation/workmanship. Better to stem the rot at the beginning by repairing the minor leaks so as to avoid a costly complete roof replacement.
Ponding water is a problem specific to flat roofs though sometimes other roofs can be subject to this problem too because of flawed structural design or installation. We investigate the source of the ponding water before making repairs. Often, HVAC condenser units on the roofs can cause ponding water if proper condensation drains are not built.
Blistering And Surface Erosion
We repair problems caused by faulty workmanship such as blistering, ridging, splitting, or erosion sometimes caused by inadequate attachments of hot bituminous roofing systems, slipping of felts, and dry laps. Blisters can also develop from voids built into the roof. These voids arise from skips in bitumen mopping, curled felts, entrapped debris, or uneven substrates.
Shrinkage In The Membrane
Each single-ply roofing system is unique but all of them share the common characteristic that they tend to pull at the flashings due to shrinkage of the membrane. This shrinkage can lead to surface cracking further damaging your roof. We repair this problem at the initial stage and prevent more substantial damage to your roof which may require a costly complete roof replacement.
Complete Roof Replacement
A roof replacement is essential from both a structural and aesthetic perspective. A severely damaged roof will make your house look bad to visitors and make you feel awkward in front of them. A leaky roof is not merely inconvenient for those living in the house but will damage the interiors of the house as well.
