If you’ve ever owned a home, then you know that maintaining a property isn’t an easy task. At any moment, something could go wrong, and because of this, you must be on top of your monthly repairs, bi-yearly check-ins, and more. Whether you’re tending to your AC units, garden, household cleanings, or your roof, you have plenty on your list of to-dos. With that in mind, it’s not uncommon for homeowners to forget about their roofs until there’s an issue that needs attention. The reason being is that the roof isn’t something we really see.
As the old saying goes, out of sight, out of mind.
In South Florida, the roof particularly takes a beating, due to severe weather patterns. These weather conditions can include intense levels of heat, followed by high winds, and even hurricanes!

Our Miami Roofing contractors Can Help
At Chris Barbara Development, we highly recommend that all of our clients have a bi-yearly roofing inspection. This inspection will help homeowners ensure that their properties are safe and secure, no matter what strange weather conditions come their way. Of course, we’d also recommend having an inspection whenever you think anything could be wrong. Even if you’re dedicated to having your bi-yearly inspections, it doesn’t mean an issue can’t arise unexpectedly. Below, we’ve highlighted a few of the top repairs our team tends to.
- Leaking Roofs
The number one reason our team is assembled at a homeowner’s property is due to roofing leaks. Everyone hopes that a roof leak is never an issue they’ll need to deal with. However, in the state of Florida, roof leaks aren’t uncommon. There are a multitude of ways that a roof leak can occur. Sometimes, roof leaks come from strong storms and hurricanes that leave shingles or tiles weak. Other times, a tree branch will tear apart the previously secured structure. If you haven’t had a roof inspection in a long while, there may have been a small leak accumulating over time, which can finally show itself in the form of a roof caving in, or water circles forming on the ceiling. At Chris Barbara Development, we’ll take care of those pesky roof leaks, once and for all.
- Pooling Water
If you’ve ever awoken to a small flood in your living room, then you’ve probably dealt with pooling water. Pooling water occurs when the gutters are full, leaving little to no room for water on the roof to properly drain. Instead, the water collects in small or large pools on the roof, weakening the shingles, and ultimately the protective barrier. This can cause the roof to cave, and it can also bring mold and mildew. Roof repairs are expensive enough as it is to fix, let alone adding mold removal to the bill. Having a bi-yearly inspection will give you a heads up as to when pooling water could become a problem, allowing you to get ahead of any potential disasters.
- Storm Damage
It’s not uncommon for houses in Florida to be surrounded by trees. The trees in the South can range from large palm trees to smaller trees. The smaller trees may seem less threatening, but in reality, their branches can still fall during a storm, leaving your roof in shambles. Alternatively, the entire weight of a palm tree could come down on your home, causing an extensive amount of collateral damage. If this happens to you, you’ll most likely need an entire roof replacement, or you’ll need a significant repair.
