This year is expected to be a very active hurricane season. Preparing now can save you a lot of money and frustration down the road.
Though roofs in Central Florida are designed for harsh weather, over time, high winds can take its toll. The more damage your roof sustains during previous storms, the less likely it will hold up as well during the next one.
“Sooner or later, all roofing needs to be replaced. If shingles are old and worn, patching or limited repairs won’t help when a hurricane strikes. If you know how long it has been since your shingles were replaced, that is a good starting point,” warns the Division of Emergency Management.
Last week we went over a few proactive ways you can prepare your roof for hurricane season, here are a few more.
Take A Good Roof At Your Roof Both Outside And Inside
You don’t need to get up on your roof and walk around, but if you have a pair of binoculars it may make it easier to look at your roof.
On the outside of the roof look for and broken, warped or missing shingles, nails that have popped up, buckling or curling shingles, rust spots on flashing, and a large amount of granules in the gutter.
On the inside of your home, look for any stains or water spots on the ceiling, wet attic insulation, peeling paint, or any daylight shining through.
