Jupiter Roof Tune-ups
Asphalt roofs have something in common with cars, since they can all benefit from tune-ups.
Another way to put it is that a roof tune-up is an expert touch-up job that can delay the need for roof replacement. Recon Roofing offers Jupiter roof tune-ups that could help to extend the lifespan of an asphalt roof that’s around 15 years old. For anyone who wants to put off the expense of a roof replacement or cut costs related to selling their home, a roof tune-up may be the perfect solution. Same as with roof repairs, it’s important to contact licensed and certified roof professionals, like the experts at Recon Roofing.
Why Only Asphalt Roofs for a Tune-Up?
Metal roofing, another of the other most common roofing materials, doesn’t need the type of care that is given to asphalt roofs in tune-ups. For a roof that you can practically afford to ignore, go with metal roofing, due to its incredible durability. Tile roofs don’t need tune-ups either, since the nature of the work done in a tune-up doesn’t apply to tile roofs. When a metal or tile roof wears out, it’s generally after anywhere from 30 to 100 years has passed. By that time, a replacement by a highly qualified roofer like Recon Roofing is generally considered the only option.
What Work is Performed in a Roof Tune-Up?
When you contact Recon Roofing for a roof tune-up, the first thing we do is provide a meticulous inspection of your asphalt roof. Any problems will be pinpointed so that they can be fully addressed during the tune-up. The cost is typically somewhere between $500 and $900.
Minor repairs are often all that’s needed during a tune-up. The following are among the common tasks performed in a roof tune-up, and related gutter work is included:
Missing shingles are replaced.
Exposed nail heads, referred to as “nail pops,” are repaired.
Broken seams are patched.
Gutters are cleaned.
Gutters are tightened using existing fasteners.
The slope of gutters is tested for proper water flow.
Loose shingles are secured.
Caulking and sealing is done around flashing, vents, and, as needed, nail holes.
Pipe gaskets are repaired, and installation of a new pipe gasket is included.
End caps, outlets, and miter joints on gutters are caulked and sealed.
Downspouts are tightened, using existing brackets and fasteners.
Ground drainage and run-off are visually inspected.
Needed repairs that may be more involved could include work on vents and jacks, skylights, ridge vents, and chimneys. Another important reason to contact our experienced roof technicians at Recon Roofing is because we offer comprehensive services and have extensive experience with all of the many components that may be part of a roof. We can efficiently handle all needed repairs.
Will a Roof Tune-Up Extend the Lifespan of My Roof?
There’s no guarantee of an extended life for a roof that gets a professional tune-up. It’s very possible, however, that you could get a few bonus years from the work that’s done. Homeowners often find it helpful to have extra time to prepare for the cost of a new roof. The professionals at Recon Roofing do reliable, high-quality work that homeowners and business owners can depend on to make the most of an investment in a roof tune-up.
