How Sarasota Roofing Pros Do Roof Maintenance

Whatever type of structure you own, you have three major services to handle in the lifespan of your building’s roof: roof installation/replacement, roof maintenance, and roof repair. Two of these jobs—roof replacement and roof repair—usually happen after major damage, which can also mean expensive damage in the rest of your building.

Roof repair and replacement area also are huge financial investments in and of themselves, and just generally stressful to deal with.

But if you have the right local company to handle the third roofing responsibility—roof maintenance—then you can protect your real estate investment and extend the life of your roof. This is especially important in Sarasota and Bradenton, where sun, rain, humidity, storms, foliage, pests, and salt air can all cause serious damage to local roofs.

Roof maintenance saves you a lot of money in the long run. And if you’ve already purchased a home or business, then you’re in it for the long run.

This is what you should know about how Sarasota roofing pros do roof maintenance.

Why Do I Need Roof Maintenance?

  • Roof maintenance ensures that your roof is in the best possible condition to withstand the elements and protect the rest of your home.
  • Roof maintenance also keeps your roof in the proper condition to last for the longest possible time. In other words, roof maintenance gives you a fully functioning roof for as long as possible, extending the life of your roof and lessening the frequency of roof replacement.
  • Lastly, roof maintenance can diagnose and reverse minor roof damage and other issues early, well before they turn into leaks, rot, or other extensive disasters.

When Do I Know I Need Roof Maintenance?

Roof maintenance should almost always happen before you think you need it. If you see evidence of leaks or other signs of roof damage, then you almost certainly need extensive roof repair work or even replacement.

Here in Sarasota, roof maintenance should happen annually—no matter how new your roof is.

Additionally, Sarasota homeowners should schedule roof maintenance after every hurricane, tropical storm, or other serious weather event.

If it’s been more than a year since you last had roof maintenance, then the next-best time to schedule maintenance services is now.

What Happens During Roof Maintenance?

Background: When you first call about roof maintenance, your Sarasota roofing company will ask for information about your roof. Vital information includes things like:

  • Any signs you’ve noticed of leaks or other roof issues
  • How old the roof is
  • What kind of roof it is
  • Roofing material
  • How old the building is
  • Style of architecture
  • History of the roof/building (especially re: storms, pests and other potential damage)
  • Where you’re located
  • Types of trees/foliage around the building

Inspection: Next, the Sarasota roof company will want to send one of their experts to take a look in person. If the expert finds anything loose or otherwise easily remedied, the maintenance inspection may even include minor repair work on the spot.

Diagnosis/Recommendations: Lastly, your roofing company will tell you what they found, and what they recommend. Hopefully they won’t find anything serious! And then you can wait until next year’s maintenance call (or the next storm).

In some cases, the roofing expert may recommend some minor work that you can do yourself or hire experts to do—like cleaning your gutters or trimming back trees.

The expert may have also found evidence of wear or damage that should be addressed prior to the next serious weather event. In that case, they will help you to schedule a follow-up visit for repairs.
