Roof Repair & Maintenance in Florida
Extend the life of your roof & improve the look of your home
Roof repair and roof maintenance go hand in hand, as good maintenance will limit the scope of repair jobs. Minor tasks such as sealing leaks and replacing damaged shingles will preserve the life of your roof and maintain its quality. Additionally, it’s often possible to put off the major expense of total roof replacement by making small spot repairs as necessary.
Whether you need roof repairs or a full roof replacement, we are the local roofers you can trust. J. Adams Roofing serves the Great Saint Augustine area, providing roof replacements and repairs done by a certified, experienced team of roofers.

When an emergency happens, we’re here to help
Even excellent maintenance work can’t prevent roof damage that occurs because of severe weather and freak accidents. Emergency roof repairs are often necessary when a building is exposed to high winds and impacts from falling trees.
Of course, some emergency roof repairs, including roof leak repair, can be avoided by preventative work. When emergency roof repairs are necessary, call J. Adams Roofing for a fast, effective solution.
Benefits of regular roof maintenance
The type of roofing material creates different challenges for roof repair work. For example, asphalt shingles, wood shingles, concrete tiles, and clay tiles often have damage to individual shingles or tiles, meaning those pieces need replacement. Metal roofing generally comes in much larger panels, so those are only replaced when spot repairs aren’t effective. Finally, flat roof repair is an entirely different process due to the rolled material and liquid waterproofing compounds.
No matter what type of roof you have, regular maintenance is very beneficial. There are several key reasons to perform consistent maintenance:
- Prevent leaks, drafts, and other exterior problems
- Stay aware of potential issues and fix them before they become major
- Prevent expensive repairs in the future
- Maintain appearance
By performing regular maintenance, you can keep your roof in good condition and prolong its lifespan, saving you the hassle and expense of full roof replacement.
Roofs serve as an essential structure on our homes or any commercial buildings we may own or work in. Despite how big and seemingly durable they are, it’s important that they receive routine maintenance to ensure everything is running smoothly and no damages in the material go unnoticed. While there’s no doubt you might try to get on your roof yourself to inspect for anything gone awry, we strongly suggest you leave that to the professionals at J. Adams Roofing. Not only is this the safer option, but it is the more effective one, as the expert eye of a roof repair professional will serve you and your property in the long run. When you inquire about roof repair at J. Adams Roofing, your roof technician will inspect the following areas of your roof:
Drains and downspouts were designed to carry water and any moisture from the roof of your building to the ground. While they may not be very large or necessarily exciting, they play an important role to the overall function of your roof. Part of effective roof repair and maintenance includes inspecting the drains and downspouts. If they become clogged from ice, leaves, tree branches, or any type of buildup, it could result in too much water and moisture accumulating on the roof, which can heavily damage the structure. If the drains and spouts have become clogged, a roofing technician will be able to locate the root of the problem to clear it out and keep your roof in optimal condition.
Roof vents are mainly found on the roofs of larger commercial buildings, and their purpose is to fight off any unwanted moisture. Depending on the building itself, a roofing technician will inspect the vents to make sure they are running as they should, and especially so if you’ve been dealing with a water or moisture buildup. In Florida, we are no stranger to moisture. That’s why it’s imperative that we keep our roofs in as good of condition as ever, and that can start with the vents. Whether your roof has been damaged or you have noticed an unusual buildup of water, a roof repair technician will inspect the vents to see if they are the culprit.
When you think of a broken or damaged roof, you might first think of the surface panels. While there are other components of a roof that serve the overall function of the structure, like the drains, downspouts, and vents, the main roofing surface is also important. What’s interesting about this, however, is that when there is an issue, it can be hard to see or address yourself. That’s why hiring a roof repair company like J. Adams Roofing is the best route for ensuring a safe, stable, and fully functioning roof. It’s easy to think of roofs as unbreakable structures, but unfortunately that’s not the case. Yes, well-made roofs are incredibly durable and reliable, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t prone to damages or can completely withstand what Mother Nature throws at them. Here in Florida, we understand that the weather can take a turn for the worse, especially during hurricane season. That’s why having your roof regularly inspected will save you money and peace of mind in the long run.
When you get your roof inspected, your technician will make their way around the surface of the roof to look for any tears or damaging that might have happened. Sometimes your roof can become damaged for no apparent reason and without your knowledge, so having someone climb up to make sure everything is looking as it should is imperative. Having an unknown or unaddressed tear or gap in your roof can cause many, many problems down the line. That’s why having your roof and all of its supporting roles inspected is a must.
Doing Roof Repair Yourself Or Calling In The Professionals…
We understand — sometimes there are situations that cause you to get up onto your roof by yourself. Perhaps you have a sneaky feeling something isn’t right, or maybe something is leaking and you think you might know why. While these situations are unavoidable, we strongly suggest you call a professional before taking to any roof repair yourself. That said, if and when you do make your way to the top of your house or commercial building, it’s vital that you stay safe. Here are some tips to keep in mind when you get onto your roof.
Don’t Go Too Fast — This seems to be common knowledge, but it can’t be pressed enough. When you’re on a roof, you’re far from the ground, and most likely also at a slant. Moving too quickly on this terrain could result in you slipping and/or falling. To avoid a catastrophe, injury, and potentially trip to the emergency room, be mindful of where and how you’re stepping on the surface of the roof. Don’t go too fast and watch where you are stepping.
Don’t Put Your Weight On Gutters or Flashing — Yes, the surface of the roof is durable, but the gutters and flashings aren’t. To avoid injury to yourself and the building, don’t step on these parts. Stay to the surface panels as much as possible.
Don’t Do Anything You Don’t Feel Comfortable Doing — It’s easy to notice a problem and immediately want to DIY it. But when it comes to roof repair, you want to be a little more careful. Sure, you might be able to point out a damage in the surface or a problem with a downspout, but do you really know how to repair it? If you don’t feel comfortable fixing the problem, then don’t do it. Step off of the roof (using a ladder of course) and call J. Adams Roofing. We will be able to repair any problems in your roof in a safe and efficient way. After all, we are the professionals. In the long run, you’ll stay safe, your roof will be in better condition, and you’ll save money by preventing any damage from happening in the first place.
