Frequently Asked Questions
What are some of the most common causes of roof storm damage?
1. Aging Shingles
One of the biggest reasons for experiencing roof problems is simply the fact that your roofing has seen its day. It may be getting old, weak, and brittle. It may be past its warranty too, and in that case, it could be wiser to invest in roof replacement than continual, frequent repairs.
2. Lack Of Roof Repair
That’s right, failing to get roof repairs when needed can lead to further and more severe roof damage. General lack of roof maintenance would also fall into this general category. An annual inspection, sweeping off the roof, and cleaning out the gutters and downspouts goes a long way!
3. Water + Cold Temperatures
In Central Florida, you don’t have to worry about ice dams, which are a leading cause of roof damage in more northerly climates. But you can still get an occasional cold rain with small amounts of ice, and you can still get hit with hail on rare occasions. It only takes one severe hit of this kind to damage your roof.
4. Wind And Storms
High winds, thunderstorms, and hurricanes can put your shingles to the test like few other things can. Choosing a material with high wind resistance will help. But you also need to get an inspection done following all major wind storms to make sure there is no hidden damage that might result in a leak later on.
5. High Heat
Especially in The Sunshine State, but anywhere really, UV light and high heat during the summer eventually take their toll on a roof. Ventilating and insulating your attic will reduce the problem, and installing a radiant barrier on the attic ceiling will further reduce the impact of the sun on your roofing.
6. Improper Installation
Many roof repair needs are directly related to improper installation work. Roofing over old shingles is just asking for leaks and broken shingles. Not using underlayment, failing to install proper flashing as needed, using poor or no roof sealants, or failing to fasten and/or overlap shingles correctly can also lead to problems.
7. Walking On The Roof
Finally, homeowners sometimes damage their own roofs by walking on them. When you wear spiked shoes or walk on a roof that is very hot, it will likely get punctured at points. You could also knock granules off the shingle tops and rip a few shingles out of place. Put safety first if ever on a roof, but also wear soft but high-traction footwear and don’t go up in high heat.
These are seven of the most common causes of roof repair needs, but of course, it is not an exhaustive list. If your roofing is damaged or you suspect it may be, contact RoofPerx for advice, repairs, or a roof inspection anytime!

How can I tell if my roof has sustained roof damage?
The integrity of your home’s roofing system is crucial to your family’s safety and comfort. However, even a well-maintained roof will eventually need repair or replacement. There are definite signs to look for when you need roof repairs. They can be seen from the ground, the interior of your home, and when your roofing inspector is up on the roof.
1. Collection of Granules
As your roof ages, the granules loosen due to time and the elements. Look in the gutter or the ground around your downspouts for granules. If your roof is heavily shedding this protective layer of your shingles it may be time for a replacement.
2. Leaky/Clogged Gutters
Leaking or clogged gutters are easy to detect. If rainwater is going over the top of the gutter rather than the downspout, you have a problem. Clogged gutters can cause thousands of dollars of siding and foundation damage.
3. Broken, Cracked, or Curling Shingles
Broken curling or cracked shingles can easily be seen from the ground. If a few shingles are cracking or curled, repairs can be made. If the damage is extensive, it may require complete replacement.
4. Missing Shingles
Missing shingles should be replaced immediately. They can lead to serious structural issues including rotting wood, mold, or other damage.
5. Hail Damage
If items are damaged on the ground, yard, or driveway, then your roof may be compromised as well. Look for dents in your air conditioning unit, lawn furniture, or your car if it’s parked outside. If your shrubs and other landscaping have been damaged by hail, you should call your roofer to come to inspect your roof.
6. Water Damage on Walls or Ceilings
If your roof is compromised, you may see signs in your home like dark spots or discoloration. Water leakage can lead to structural damage, mold, or other problems.
7. Problems in the Attic
If mold, rotting wood, or damaged items are found in the attic you may have a hidden leak. If you see any of these signs, call a professional to inspect your home’s roof.
8. The Extent of Shingle Damage
While some shingle damage can be easily seen from the ground, some damage is only visible to the trained eye of a professional.
9. Hidden Damage
There are some details that can only be accurately assessed from on your roof and require a professional inspection to detect. Depending on the extent of damage, may require a roofing replacement.

What should I do if my roof is damaged in a storm?
Your roof is your home’s first line of defense against the elements. And rarely can you predict when your home will be hit by damaging weather. So what should you do if you suspect your roof has been damaged? It is important to have a clear understanding of the proper steps that should be taken when the roof of your home has been damaged.
1. Assess the damage.
The first step after you experience severe weather is to assess the damage. Approximate damage assessments can help you discuss your needs with your insurance company or contractor and avoid unforeseen costs or discrepancies. (This is usually only possible in daylight, so in some cases, you may want to skip to step #2 listed below before assessing the damage.)
When looking at your roof to identify damaged areas, use a pair of binoculars. Estimate the general square foot area and specific details of the area that has been damaged. Note the severity of the damage, and look carefully to see if there are areas of missing shingles. In some cases, only a few random shingles will be missing.
Document the materials that are visible or exposed. Check for signs of exposed plywood, tarpaper, or the ends of missing shingles. Take note of the color of the material and the approximate shade. (Additional shingles from a roof replacement project in the past will have the shingle color stamped on the end of the package.)
2. Make temporary fixes to minimize property damage.
If the roof is severely damaged in an area directly above a living space, the interior property can be damaged by leaking water. Be sure to place a bucket or garbage can under leaks and remove any valuables in the area in order to prevent further interior damage. Serious damage may need to be waterproofed quickly using a strapped tarping method, while smaller repairs can be shingled immediately.
3. Contact your insurance company.
Contact your insurance company. Evaluate if the damage is large enough to be covered through home insurance, or whether it would be more economical to hire a contractor directly for any necessary repairs. In times of natural disaster, when large residential areas are hit by a storm or other severe weather, it can be beneficial to use your homeowner’s insurance as contractors can become busy.
4. If necessary, contact a reliable contractor to repair the roof.
If you decide to hire a private contractor, always hire a professional certified roofing contractor. Avoid contractors who are in the area because of a natural disaster. Traveling contractors who follow storms have no reputation to uphold and may provide sub-standard workmanship.
If you are experiencing any of these signs or are concerned about your roof, please contact the experts at RoofPerx for a free roof evaluation.
How can I prevent storm damage to my roof?
1) Replace damaged shingles
Any damaged or missing shingles require immediate replacing. A damaged shingle has a high chance of breaking free. And if it is missing altogether, your home will be openly exposed.
Wind will also be able to get under it and cause a large amount of damage to your whole house. Small damage roof repairs are easier to look into than bigger ones.
2) Repair any loose siding
Strong winds and hail storms can cause damage to the siding, making it come loose. In this case, just like the shingles, siding also needs immediate attention.
3) Clean your roof gutters
Gutters need to be free-flowing and drain water away from your foundation with your downspouts. One of the easiest ways to devalue your home is water damage, flooding, or foundation issues. Allow water to flow away from your home by ensuring that your roof gutters are clean.
4) Ensure that the water is flowing away from your home
The main function of the grade of your lot is to keep the water from flowing near your house and into a drain or some other proper drainage area.
5) Seal your doors and windows properly
Wind-driven rain needs only a tiny gap to infiltrate the seals of your windows and doors. This could make your home susceptible to water leaks in your home.
6) Trim your trees regularly
Problematic tree limbs can damage your house, a car, or even the property of your neighbor. Trimming the trees on your property frequently is an excellent way to safeguard your roof and windows.
7) Keep checking around your property
Before storm season kicks up, a lot of people do not have the time or expertise to check and/or fix anything on their house. But there are some very simple measures you can take to mitigate its effect if you know a storm is coming. Like recognizing the objects that could become projectiles around your house. That means furniture for the lawn, equipment, flower pots, or other debris from the yard. Move those things to an indoor location like a garage or shed.

What are some of the most common types of roof damage?
We see certain types of roof damage far more often than others – here are some of the most common types, and why you need to seek out repairs immediately if you experience these problems.
Moisture is always bad news when it goes past your shingles. Many different problems can cause moisture damage, from cracks and loose tile to failed sealants, torn underlayments, and more. Moisture can cause decay, rot, mildew, mold, and moss – and invite a host of pests to take advantage of your weakened roof and house structure.
The most common signs of moisture damage are the dreaded stained ceiling or walls. However, moisture damage can occur long before these signs show up, so quality roof maintenance is very important.
Punctures and Cracks
While closely related to moisture damage, punctures and cracks are in a category of their own, because they tend to have very direct, often preventable causes. One of the most common causes is poor installation or maintenance. Some parts of your roof are very fragile, and careless steps or improper use of tools can puncture seals, tear underlayments or moisture barriers, and crack flashing. If you don’t know what you are doing, always leave work to an expert roof technician to prevent roof damage.
A rarer cause of punctures and cracks is flying debris, which occurs during strong windstorms. Check your roof after a bad storm for signs of damage.
Loose and Broken Shingles
Shingles aren’t made to last forever, and when they are improperly installed the damage gets even worse. Strong winds, especially in the presence of weak flashing and bad adhesives, will blow off shingles and leave parts of your roof bare. Associated debris and heavy hail can also break and tear away shingles. When this occurs, it is important to quickly replace the shingles with new patches.
Worn-Down Roofing Materials
Bare, grayed-out shingles, piles of shingle granules, rust and moss are all signs of an old roof that needs serious work or a full replacement. When materials enter the last years of their life span, they grow old and fragile. A professional roofer can tell with a quick inspection if your roof needs one of these common replacement or repair jobs.
This is a little less common, but we are seeing this sort of roof damage grow as more modern, flat rooftop styles become popular. A flat roof must be delicately angled and sealed if you want to avoid water forming small pools on the roof every time it rains. Those pools will cause moisture damage if left alone, and they are a sign that you need repair work.
Structural damage occurs if the supports under your roof start shifting or failing. Your roof may buckle, tilt, or experience other odd issues. This is a very serious problem that often requires a large repair project to treat.
