Rain Proofing Your Home, Office or Commercial Building
Duval and the surrounding counties of North Florida see quite a bit of rainfall yearly for being part of the “Sunshine State”. These counties experience on average over 113 days of precipitation each and every year. We sometimes take for granted that we live in a semi-tropical climate and are very susceptible to rain, wind and tropical storms mostly during specific times of the year. All of these weather events can cause havoc on homes and commercial structures especially their corresponding roofs. So, if a roof leak were to occur where would we start to uncover the problem? Would we be thinking about replacing all of the roofing materials, replacing individual shingles or trying out those commercialized roofing compounds guaranteed to stop a leaking roof.
If you are experiencing any type of water leak, and believe it is originating from somewhere on your roof, call the experts at Sunrise Roofing Company of Jacksonville Beach. It’s hard to know where to start when finding the specific cause or position of a leaky roof. It could be coming from many different places on or about a roof. Certainly, cracked or missing tiles, damaged sub-structure, torn areas incurred by branches or debris or adjacent soffits and facia could be the culprit. But, unless you have roofing contractor experience, chances are you will be making more than one attempt to solve the problem.
The best way to fix a roofing problem is to be proactive and head them off before they arise. But most homeowners don’t take advantage of affordable, yearly roofing maintenance plans. 113 days of rain events can actually take years off the lifespan of a roof especially if the type of materials used are not of the highest rated quality for durability. One of the reasons Florida’s insurance company underwriters have reduced their coverage options from 15 -10-year-old roofs is not just because of soaring claims, but also due to the degradation these roofs experience in this climate. Florida roofs have to withstand, extreme humidity, moisture, rainfall, excessive winds and above all, 250 days of sunlight and seasonal heat. Even if you properly install the most durable and expensive, top grade, 50-year architectural asphalt shingles, you still might have to replace them within 20 years due to these climatic issues.
