There are many issues that can affect your home’s roof, especially as a resident of Jacksonville, here are some of them:
While we here in Jacksonville are blessed with amazing weather, we sure are no strangers to the rain. Jacksonville receives 52.4″ of rain annually. This type of precipitation is sure to cause some leaks in your roof. These leaks are a combination of many things. It can be a result of an old, failing roof. It can be a result of a lack of maintenance and repair. It can also be caused by clogged gutters and water overspilling and leaking into your home as a result. Roof leaks are an easy repair if seen immediately. If not, it can become a major issue that could weaken the structures of your entire home.
Algae and moss growth
The combination of excess moisture and high temperatures creates a perfect environment for the growth of moss and algae. Never underestimate the harm these seemingly harmless growths can cause. If left unchecked, moss and algae can spread to the point of damaging your roof’s structure and even the structure beneath. Best to get this checked by professional roofers in Jacksonville to avoid major damage.
In Jacksonville, we are no stranger to severe weather conditions. Every so often a storm sweeps through our neighbourhoods and leaves a path of destruction in its wake. This destruction often includes the roofs of our homes. Severe winds can cause asphalt shingle roofing to lift, tear or break off completely. The same goes for tile roofing and even wood shakes. The winds can also result in trees blowing over on to roofs, damaging it in the process. Often a combination of heavy rain and wind can also cause gutters to dislodge or break.
