With over a decade of experience repairing and replacing roofs in South Florida, and especially in beach areas, we can say with certainty that the time to have minor roof damage or a suspected leak looked at is NOW. Even small roof issues can rapidly escalate into expensive problems unless addressed in a timely manner.
Your roof is under constant assault from the extreme South Florida elements year round. The blazing hot sun, hurricane force winds and torrential rains all take their toll on your roofing system. Although the best defense against the elements is a “good offense” including regular maintenance, unfortunately sometimes “leaks happen.”
Leaks are usually a result of either storm damage, age of the roof, or improper installation. If you suspect damage after a storm, please give us a call for a free inspection; it’s better to be safe than sorry. And, if no damage is found, we are happy to report that as well!
Many times, leaks are caused by a roof reaching the end of its lifespan. For instance, many asphalt shingle roofs have a rated lifespan of 20 or 25 years, depending on the quality of the shingle. Tile roofs, while more expensive to install originally, can have a much longer lifespan. If you are not sure of the age of your roof and the expected balance of its lifespan, give us a call or email us. We’ll come out and let you know the effective “age” of your roof and how much more life is in it. And, whether its lifespan can be extended through some simple repairs.
Improper installation of your roof can be one of the more frustrating experiences you can encounter as a homeowner. Installation issues in one area can be manifested as a leak in another part of the house as water travels down the roof joists. Issues can be improper installation of ridges and valleys, improper flashing, poor overlaps, or inadequate or improper shingle fasteners. We are experts at tracking down these issues and getting them corrected. And correcting these issues early can head off costly repairs at a later date.
Leaks not tended to in a timely manner can cause thousands of dollars in unnecessary repairs at a later date. Siding damage, drywall damage, soggy insulation, fascia and soffit failure are just a few of the potential issues. You can “kick the can” on some home repairs, but roof repair is typically not one of those repairs. Act quickly.

We can also handle full roof replacements and any interior remodeling repairs required if water damage has impacted the inside of your home.
