Signs of a Roof Leak

It is storm season in Palm Harbor, which increases the risk of your home getting a roof leak. The constant rains of summer can make a small problem worse as prolonged water exposure can lead to problems such as mold and structure damage. It is crucial to know what the signs are so you can address the issue as soon as possible.

What to Look For

Some signs are easier to spot than others. Water dripping from your ceiling is a clear sign that your home is in need of repair. However, often times there are more subtle clues that indicate you have a roof leak. Here are the less-than-obvious things you should watch for in your Palm Harbor home:

  • Bubbling: If you notice that your wallpaper or paint no longer smooth, and has bubbles, ripples, or is peeling, it is a sign that that water is seeping in.
  • Water Spots: They can be on the wall or ceiling. They will appear to be wet at first and eventually turn yellow or brown, especially around the edges. You may also notice cracking as the material weakens.
  • Algae or Mold: Algae and mold can appear on both the exterior and interior of the home.
  • Musty or Moldy Smell: If you notice a strange odor, it could be mold. It can smell similar to clothes that been left in the washer too long.
  • Warped Shingles: Shingles that are no longer flat against the surface are damaged; one of the main causes of warping is from water that is trapped beneath them.

Done Rite Roof Leak Repairs

It is best to call a professional as soon as you suspect you may have a roof leak. If water is dripping from the ceiling of your Palm Harbor home, you either have major damage or have damage that has been there for a while and is worsening. The experts at Done Rite Roofing will be able to assess the damage and make any necessary repairs before the problem becomes more severe, and costly to fix.

If you suspect you have a roof leak, call their Palm Harbor location at 727-771-8747.

Does Your Roof Leak?

If you have noticed puddles on your floor, bubbling paint, or the smell of mold, your home may have a roof leak. Your ceiling is your home’s first line of defense from Mother Nature, so making sure it is in good space is crucial. And with so many heavy thunderstorms coming through Palm Harbor this summer, keeping your home dry is always a good idea.

Detecting the Leak

Finding the location of the leak is the first step towards fixing your home. Call your local roofing company immediately to have experts inspect your home to find the source of the roof leak. Regular maintenance checks are the best way to detect early signs and will help fix the problem much earlier than later on in the process.

No Time for DIY

Any repair is crucial to a home, whether major or minor, and some people would rather do the work themselves. However, it is never a good idea to attempt a DIY fix on your roof. Not only is it dangerous, but you could end up making the problem even worse. It’s always best to have a contractor look at your home in Palm Harbor on a regular basis regarding the condition of your home. By having a skilled technician look at the current state of your home, they will be able to choose the best way to fix the leak.

Quality Repairs

At Done Rite, our experienced contractors will be able to inspect your home, both inside and out, find the source of the water, and create a solution that will last. We know how stressful it can be to discover you have a roof leak, which is why we are always courteous and treat your home respectfully.

Done Rite Roofing is the best to call on in your time of need. Whether you have water soaking your carpet or if you just need an evaluation of your home, we can be there in no time. Contact us in the Palm Harbor area at 727-771-8747 to schedule an appointment with our contractors today!

Questions to Ask Your Shingle Roofing Company

No matter if your Tampa home already has shingles and they need to be updated or repaired, or if you would like to install them on your new home, hiring the right shingle roofing company is crucial. This material should last for 35-50 years, and it is quite an investment, so you don’t want second rate contractors doing a poor job. At Done Rite Roofing, we only have one thing to say: if you want it done right, call DONE RITE!

Before you hire a Tampa shingle roofing company, here are some important questions to ask first:

  1. Can I have a free estimate and inspection? You don’t want to hire a company that only gives verbal estimates or that gives them out over the phone without ever seeing your home. The only accurate way to know what work needs to be done and how much it will cost is by looking at your home from above. And the only way you can protect yourself from price increases is with a written estimate.
  2. Are all of your contractors licensed and insured? Here in Tampa, it is against the law for contractors to not have a license. Without it, you cannot be sure that they will know exactly what they are doing as they work on the largest part of your home. And, should something go wrong, insurance is the only way for you to be protected from lawsuits.
  3. Do you clean up afterwards? Your shingle roofing company should always clean up after themselves. Otherwise, your lawn will be full of extra pieces of old and new shingles and dangerous nails that can hide in the grass. The best companies will always clean up after the job is complete, and after each day of working.
  4. Will you remove the old shingles or just put the new ones on top? The answer to this will vary, since each roof is different, but it is important to know the answer. You can put the new material right on top of the old one, only if there is just the one layer and it is still in good condition. If you already have more than one layer, they could become too heavy for your home, and poor quality will just cause problems.

How to Care For Your Tile Roof

If you are looking for an experienced and qualified tile roofing company, look no further than Done Rite Roofing! Many Palm Harbor houses have tile roofs as opposed to shingles because they can withstand the intense heat the area is subject to, they are pest resistant, and they outlive other types with minimal care. Of course, the many benefits offered don’t outweigh the problems that could arise from neglecting maintenance.

What Should You Look For?

As an experienced tile roofing company, Done Rite has some tips for prolonging the lifespan of your surface and avoiding frequent and costly repairs. The most common problems to watch out for are buildup and broken tiles.

  • Build Up: The frequent heat and humidity of Palm Harbor is particularly conducive to mildew, algae, and mold growth. As dirt and debris accumulate on the tiles, they become incubators for unwanted growth. The moisture in the air combined with the heat from direct sunlight cause spores to spread and sprout new growths rapidly. Regular visual inspections can help avoid this process. As you notice debris, dirt, and dust accumulating on your service, call a professional tile roofing company to help recommend or perform cleaning services.
  • Broken Tiles: Finding broken or whole pieces in your yard is a sure sign that something is wrong. If you are able to safely climb a ladder, you can visually inspect your structure for missing pieces, cracks, or chips to avoid leaks and pest infestations that can occur when your surface is compromised. At Done Rite, we do not recommend climbing on to your home for this inspection or for any necessary repairs. It is so important to contact your local Palm Harbor professionals to avoid serious injuries and to avoid further breakages.

Preparing Your Roof for Hurricane Season

Hurricane season in Palm Harbor will be hitting us sooner than you may think. And while we will have to start preparing for torrential rains and high winds, the best thing about hurricanes is that we (usually) have at least a week’s notice before they comes. Unfortunately, no one considers getting any roof repairs done until right before the storm comes, and by then all of the qualified roofing contractors will be booked up. The best way to make sure your home is ready for the storm is to make sure any and all necessary repairs are done early in the season.

How Can Professional Roofing Contractors Help You?

If you want to be sure that your home can handle the next storm that rolls through Palm Harbor, follow these simple steps:

  • Call your roofing contractors to perform any necessary repairs so you know there won’t be any small problems that are exacerbated by a heavy rainstorm.
  • Schedule regular maintenance checks with your contractors, so they can repair small problems before they grow worse.
  • Take the time yourself to inspect under the eaves of you roof and use binoculars to inspect your shingles to make sure none are loose or missing.

While your home will need regular inspections, attempting to climb up and do it yourself can be dangerous. Not only could you slip and fall, but you could damage your roofing material as well. Trust your Palm Harbor roofing contractors to do the job correctly and safely.

Shingle vs. Tile: Which is right for you?

Whether you’re building your Palm Harbor dream home or upgrading an older one, knowing what materials to use to get a beautiful, durable, energy-efficient look can be a challenge. A professional roofing company will be able to point you in the right direction for choosing what is best for the top of your home.

If you’re not ready to consult professionals just yet and but want the rundown on how shingles and tiles differ, here are some things you’ll need to know.

Shingles

Shingles are a less expensive short-term investment because they are lighter in weight and easier to install. However, they are less environmentally friendly than tiles and only have a 20-year average lifespan.

Asphalt shingles are best in areas without harsh weather such as frequent hurricanes or snow storms because they are lighter and can blow off in high winds. This doesn’t make them a bad choice for your Palm Harbor home though; it is just a disadvantage to be considered. With regular maintenance taking care of small necessary repairs, shingles can be a great choice. A roofing company will be able to tell you if this is the right fit for your house.

Tiles

Although tiles are the more expensive of the two options, they offer a number of benefits, such as double the lifespan (about 50 years on average), more durability, and more economic benefits.

Tiles are heavier than shingles, which means they withstand Palm Harbor’s hurricane season better. However, this also means they need a strong foundation, so if you’re replacing the roof of an older home, calling a roofing company to inspect the existing structure is crucial. Their weight and design also makes them harder to install, which means more money up front, but it means they have a higher ability of withstanding weather conditions.

Because of the ventilation required to install tiles, this option is great for reducing heating and cooling costs. Tiles also tend to be the more aesthetically pleasing option of the two, which means better curbside appeal for your resale value.

What Should You Choose?

Call a professional roofing company to discuss your options in detail. You can look at the comparable homes in your area to get a sense of what is more popular, visually appealing, and durable, but only a knowledgeable contractor can tell you what will be the best fit for your home.
