Should the Roof Be Repaired or Replaced?
Dickson Roofing is an industry leader in repair, maintenance, and re-roofing for residential and commercial customers, and offers all modern roofing systems, including energy-efficient, sustainable designs.
Consider these factors as you think about whether to repair or replace your roof:
Age. Most roofs can be expected to last 15-20 years, but this will be influenced by factors such as the type of roofing materials, how the roof was installed, and the weather conditions the roof must endure. The extremes of Florida’s climate during the year will affect your roof.
If your roof is relatively new and already beginning to leak, the problem is most likely the result of a defect in the roofing materials or poor installation. Dickson Roofing may be able to do a spot repair, but you may be better off replacing an older roof with substantial leaks.
Moisture or water damage. A major component of every roof is the underlayment, a waterproof or water-resistant barrier that is installed directly onto your roof deck under all other roofing materials to serve as an extra layer of protection from rain, heat, and high winds.
Water, however, is powerful. It can quickly make its way inside your home, where it can cause significant damage and even health problems. If you see signs of moisture, such as brown spots on the ceiling, peeling paint, or mold inside your home, it means your roof is no longer waterproof. In this case, re-roofing may be a better solution than a patch or repair.
If you hire us to install a shingle roof, Dickson Roofing uses only the best materials, such as an underlayment of peel-and-stick modified bitumen like most roofing contractors use for tile roofs. We then install dimensional shingles manufactured by major companies like CertainTeed, GAF, and Owens-Corning that feature a lifetime warranty.
Stormy weather. From a leaky roof to wind damage from fallen tree limbs and branches, the effects of a violent storm or hurricane can be serious and may be widespread enough to warrant a complete roof replacement. Schedule a roof inspection for your roof immediately following a major storm to repair any damage and avoid more costly and extensive work later on.
