You'll Need More Than An Umbrella To Keep Dry In Florida's Rainy Season

You'll Need More Than An Umbrella To Keep Dry In Florida's Rainy Season Tuesday, July 27, 2021

Your house is designed to protect you from extreme weather conditions such as heavy rain and damaging wind. However, these conditions can cause significant damage to your home if you do not prepare for them. During the rainy and hurricane season in Florida, tornados, hurricanes, and tropical systems could wreak havoc on an unprepared home. Florida's rainy season begins as early as May and runs into hurricane season that can last until November. Because of its lengthy run, it's important to prepare your home so that it can withstand the natural elements.

A roof inspection, leak detection, and roof tarping are all essential services you should take advantage of as the rain and hurricane seasons gear up in our area.

A Thorough Roof Inspection Can Fix Damages Before the Rainy Season Starts

A roof inspection is an important step towards protecting your home as it informs you of any damage on your roof and how serious it is. Scheduling a roof inspection before the rainy season begins allows you to arrange for any needed repairs before rain or wind cause even more damage. Roof inspections should be done annually by a professional team like ours. We are trained to thoroughly inspect your roof for damages that cannot be spotted easily.

Roof inspections will also ensure that your roof will last longer and endure more rain and hurricane seasons. These inspections should be meticulous, so here are critical items that a roof inspector should check for:

  • Chimney cracks
  • Uneven roof planes
  • Water damage
  • Mold buildup
  • Loose or missing shingles
  • Worn-out fascia in your gutters

True Builders's sister company, True Roofers, has the best comprehensive roof inspection services that will assess your roof's condition and provide an easy-to-understand analysis and recommendations for repair.

Leak Detection Determines the Source of Sneaky Leaks

Sounds of dripping water at home and an increasing water bill are usually tell-tale signs of undetected leaks in your home. A small leak might seem like a simple issue but, if undetected, can grow and cause extensive damage to your home in the long run. Early leak detection before the start of the rainy season can help mitigate the risk of the leak becoming bigger.

Most homeowners may neglect to get leak detection services and this should not be the case. Sneaky leaks that aren't fixed may cause erosion to the foundation of your home. If you suspect a leak in your home, non-invasive leak detection is the best way to go. It uses modern equipment that can detect leaks from angles and places that are hard to see without having to knock down your walls.

If a leak has already caused flooding in your home, our team can perform home flood restoration to fix the damage and restore your home to a better condition than it was before.

Roof Tarping Protects Your Home While Awaiting Repairs

Roofs that have been damaged by natural disasters such as tornados and hurricanes can be dangerous for you and your family. Sometimes, roof repair service providers can be inundated with calls after a disaster, so they may not be able to repair your roof right away. Luckily, roof tarping can help property owners protect their homes from debris and rain while waiting for a more permanent roof repair solution.

Roof tarping is a temporary solution to roof problems. It involves inspecting the roof and determining the severity of the damage before attaching a tarp to cover the damaged areas. Your property might require roof tarping after it has been damaged by poor weather conditions such as heavy rain, hail, fallen trees, and hurricanes.

Most of the time, roof tarping is covered by your home insurance as long as the damage is not caused by poor maintenance.
