Protecting your investment
Upgrading & Repairing Done Right
Every property needs periodic maintenance and remodeling to stay fresh and appealing to tenants. Maybe it is time to upgrade your roof. It’s amazing what beautiful, new roofing materials or color can do to improve the protection and value of your building investment.
A common mistake we see is overlapping roofs. Installing a new roofing over an existing roof causes moisture to collect between each layer, allowing the decking to deteriorate rapidly. Replacing wood decking can be costlier than removing the original roofing and installing the new roof correctly from the beginning. In some cases, installing shingles over shingles can be against Florida Building Code. They both have to be removed down to the decking to provide you with the kind of protection your property needs for weather extremes.
Weathering the Storm
Interwoven roof components work together to protect your building. If any are missing or badly damaged, they will no longer be effective protection against the elements. Insufficient ventilation can be another cause of roof degradation that can shorten a roof’s life. Only a qualified roof inspection can provide the answers.
Tropical storms with high winds and water can result in heavy damage to your roof and, in turn, damage the interior of your business. Pounding storms can initiate small cracks that will enlarge with time and cause more damage. Getting an inspection immediately after major storms is just smart business.
