Shingle roofs are economical at installation. Typically, with proper care, they can last many years. Even so, they are susceptible to storm damage, and need regular maintenance. If you suspect your Florida home needs shingle roof repair, Kelly Roofing stands ready to assist you. If your shingle roof has suffered hurricane damage, we are here to help. Look for these signs that you need shingle roof repair.

Hurricane Storm Damage

A passing storm may concern you; should you check your Collier county home’s shingle roof for possible damage? At Kelly Roofing, we advise against any homeowner going up on a roof; even a low-pitched roof can be a slippery, dangerous place. Please survey damage from the ground or from an extension ladder.
Look for these signs of storm damage:

  • Blunt impact damage from tree branches or wind-tossed debris hitting the roof
  • Dimpling and cracks from hail
  • Uplift, torn or raised shingles from winds
  • Missing or loose shingles, especially along a roof edge
  • Displaced flashing or drip edge

The list of possible trouble spots is really just as long as other roofing materials because every roof is an integrated system. With conscientious metal roof repair from a local roofer, you can expect to benefit from metal roofing’s best qualities while safeguarding against the predictable issues.

You can also scope out the need for shingle roof repair after a storm by examining the underside of your roof, from your attic. Look for indications of water infiltration:

  • Damp insulation
  • Water spots
  • Blackened or darkened wood on sheathing or rafters
  • Damaged rooftop ventilators
  • Dripping water around chimneys, sanitary stacks and other roof penetrations

You may also notice discoloration on ceilings, indicating a slow drip from a leaky roof. Shingle roofs are water resistant, not watertight; shingle roof repair may be necessary to uncover failed underlayment. Kelly Roofing recommends replacing tarpaper underlayment with water shield, which seals around nails and staples to keep water completely out.
