Roof Maintenance Tips For Sarasota Property Managers

Roof Maintenance Tips For Sarasota Property Managers

The roof can be one of your properties biggest investments, and yet they’re so easily neglected.

Roofs receive a lot of beating that tends to go ignored. Extreme weather, accidents, and lack of maintenance can affect the life of your properties roof and left ignored can lead to the need for a total roof replacement.

A roof that is well maintained is a great way to ensure that your property remains worry free. Below you will find a few tips for roof maintenance tips for Sarasota property managers.

Florida Climate

Managing a property in Florida, a property manager may not consider the climate in Florida when it comes to the roof on their property. While we don’t necessarily receive snow or big hail, we’re still not immune to some of natures harshest weather. As a Sarasota Property Manager you must take into consideration the climate in which your building resides. From summer storms (including hurricane season) to what feels like year round heat, the climate in Florida will affect the life of your properties roof.

 Here is some Florida climate specific tips:

In warmer climates, pest control may be an issue. Termites, squirrels, birds, and rats can all take up residence inside of your roof. Inspect the roof for any entry holes and areas these pests and vermin can make their home.

Heavy Rains and Humidity – Florida is notorious for heavy summer rains and high humidity nearly all year long. Rain & humidity are molds best friends. Mold can lead to damage and also allergies for your tenants. If a tenant reports water damage to you, remedy this as quickly as possible to avoid any growth of mold and avoid costly roof repairs.

Heavy Storms & Hurricanes – Driving rain and wind can cause severe damage to your properties roof. Loose tiles, shingles torn & damaged, trees falling, and other types of damage can occur after a heavy storm. Hurricanes can cause roof sections to be torn up, water intrusion, and many other issues with your properties roof. Inspect your properties roof after every heavy storm and remedy any situations as quickly as possible.

Damage from the Sun – Florida is the Sunshine State. Sun can and will damage shingle roofs and can cause premature failure of roof sealants and coatings. Inspect the roof regularly and ensure the seals are doing their jobs, and that the shingles aren’t cracked or damaged.

Inspections

Roof inspections are critical to ensure the life of your properties roof. To get the most life out of your roof, Florida Southern Roofing recommends at minimum a yearly inspection. Additionally, it is recommended that you have your roof inspected after a heavy storm or any severe damage.

As a property manager, you can inspect your properties roof regularly as well. Keep a look out for damaged or missing shingles, broken tiles, or any other indicators that your roofing system is having problems. Getting a licensed reputable roofing contractor out at the first sign of issue is important to increase longevity and fix any issues before they become bigger costly repairs.
