Reroofing

Vero Beach Reroofers

PROUDLY SERVING SEBASTIAN, FL AND VERO BEACH

As its name suggests, reroofing is the process of removing old, damaged roofing materials and replacing them with new, sturdy material. This service not only helps protect your property against the adverse effects of weather and aging but may also boost its aesthetic appeal and overall value. Reroofing can be ideal for roofs that have gone past their prime, yet retain a structurally sound foundation. This process can be a cost-effective and efficient solution to roof restoration without the need for a complete roof overhaul and roof deck replacement.

The reroofers in our Vero Beach office understand the importance of a durable and reliable roof over your head. We use high-quality materials designed to last and withstand the harsh Floridian climate. Our work is backed by a solid, 12 year warranty.

The Signs Your Roof Is Leaking

The quickest way to know if your roof is leaking is to look up. When you see one or more stains on the ceiling, that is almost always an indication of a roof leak. Sometimes, it’s a build-up of condensation from an AC unit or an overflowing AC pan in the attic. Sometimes, it’s a compromised seam in a water line in the attic. Most of the time when you see a stain on the ceiling, your roof is leaking. Or worse, the stain becomes a bubble that starts filling up with water. If you see signs of roof leaks…

Go into your attic, travel to the area above the stain in your ceiling, and look for the following:

  • Roof penetrations with water stains 
  • Nails or screws with water dripping
  • Plywood decking seams that are wet
  • Areas on the trusses that are wet or stained
  • Areas on the plywood decking that are stained 
  • Areas in the insulation that show signs of being wet

What Should I Do When My Roof Is Leaking?

A tarp can be a good temporary solution. Buy one at Home Depot, Lowes, or wherever your search engine suggests. In addition to a tarp, buy some plastic cap nails to fasten it to your roof. There are other more secure tarp installation methods, but this is a simple one. Make sure to install the tarp starting over the leak area and extending up and over the top of the roof ridge above the leak area. This will help in preventing the rainwater from running under the tarp you install. Please note that tarps can easily be blown off by wind, so do not rely on them for too long, and be sure to check them often. 
There are other methods for temporarily addressing leaks that depend on the type of roof you have. They include roof cement, certain types of caulk, and silicone-based sealants, among other things. Getting on a roof requires several safety precautions, including but not limited to, always having a person on the ground to help. At the very least, tell someone else what you are doing, when, and where so they can make sure you are safe. 

Common Causes of Roof Leaks

Roofs can leak for a lot of different reasons. The more they are exposed to baking in the sun, getting whipped by the wind, or covered with tree debris that sits on them for a while, the more likely they are to leak. Unfortunately, much like the rest of us, old age tends to be the leading cause of issues that ultimately lead to roof leaks.

Common causes of leaks are nail pop (When water gets under shingles and rusts a nail, the nail can push up through the shingles and create a hole), compromised penetrations (like vents, plumbing stacks, skylights, and chimneys), valleys, box offs, and other roof areas with changes in direction.  These issues will often wear out one part of the roof before the rest of the roof, and as a result, they leak sooner. Flat roofs often have seams every three feet. Those seams can be a leak point. So can the transition from a pitched roof to a flat roof. 

Fixing Roof Leaks

Fixing roof leaks starts with identifying where the water gets in. Usually, all the roofing material surrounding the leak and, especially above the leak, should be removed. Rotted roof decking should also be removed and replaced. Often, self-adhering underlayment will be a good first layer of roof repair. It should be tied into the existing roofing material taking gravity into consideration (upper material laps over lower material). Installing similar roofing material to the surrounding area is usually applied for the top layer of a repair for secure waterproofing and to blend into the existing roof.
