Water Damage & Roof Leaks Jacksonville Florida
It’s a nightmare for any homeowner: the leaky roof. It’s frustrating, it’s costly, and it’s a hassle to replace. As much as you want to put off your roof until it’s right for the budget, it’s important to get it replaced right away. Water damage can have an effect on a variety of different elements of the home, including walls, floors, ceilings, and structural roofing components (i.e. wood decking and rafters, etc.).
The roof may be leaking for a variety of reasons. It’s important to have a complete roof inspection at the first sign because the roof leak can inevitably turn into a ceiling leak, which leads to water damage inside the home. With recent hurricanes such as Matthew and Irma, many roofs in Jacksonville have been subject to significant storm related damages.
Wind damage can rip shingles off the roof while tearing the underlayment in the process. This leads to exposed roof decking which can cause water to come through into the house. Flashing helps to direct the flow of water around your house and prevent water from seeping into your home, so it’s important to make sure your flashing is in good condition. At A.J. Wells Roofing & Construction, we replace all flashing with every roof we replace.
While fixing the leak itself does secure the roof to make sure no more water enters, this is merely a temporary repair. Many homeowners tend to regard roof leaks as a minor fix, but leaks are much more serious than that. An excess amount of water intrusions can lead to mildew and mold, which can lead to your family becoming severely ill. At A.J. Wells Roofing & Construction, we want to ensure our repairs are the best quality possible.
It is vital to be on the lookout for water intrusion. Water intrusion does not only damage the ceiling, but it can also damage hardwood floors, walls, cabinets, and structural components such as wood decking and rafters if it goes unattended for long enough. Our roofing technicians can track down the exact source of these water leaks by evaluating the roof for any storm related damages.
