Florida Roof Inspection

Several situations precipitate the need for a roof inspection by a professionally licensed Florida roof contractor. All too often, performance of the roof is taken for granted and forgotten about until it starts to fail. But if you are not evaluating your roof twice a year, you risk prematurely devaluing one of your biggest assets. Ask us to perform a roof evaluation if you:

  • Suspect or confirm leaks
  • Need hard numbers to plan for future capital expenditures
  • Want a third party opinion of roof condition
  • Need to keep in compliance with an existing warranty
  • Want to start a preventative maintenance program
  • Need to schedule several repairs

Roof inspections should only be carried out by a professional roofer with credentials and license for the specific type of roof on your building.  On-staff maintenance personnel should only inspect perform minor repairs if they have been trained and certified by the manufacturer.   A leak is usually the culmination of problems  festering for an extended period of time so early detection can save an extraordinary amount of time and money in the long run.
