Why Savannah Homes Need Regular Roof Inspections

Emphasize the importance of routine inspections to prevent long-term damage.
In Savannah and Coastal Georgia, our local climate presents unique challenges for maintaining the integrity of your roof. With an average of 120 days of rainfall each year and nearly biennial brushes or direct hits from hurricanes, our homes and businesses are frequently exposed to severe weather conditions. This consistent exposure, combined with high humidity, encourages algae growth, invites critters, and results in various types of tree debris accumulation, all of which can be detrimental to roofing systems.
At Seaport Roofing, we understand that the weather in Savannah and the surrounding coastal areas requires roofs to be resilient and well-maintained to withstand these environmental pressures. High humidity levels, for instance, can lead to the proliferation of algae on roofs, which not only affects the aesthetic appeal of your home but can also degrade roofing materials over time. The moisture retained by algae can cause shingles to rot or become brittle, leading to a need for premature roof replacements.
Critters such as squirrels, birds, and raccoons can also cause significant damage. They often seek shelter in small openings under eaves or in damaged areas of the roof, where they can gnaw on materials, displace tiles or shingles, and create openings that lead to leaks. Regular inspections can help identify these vulnerabilities early before they turn into costly repairs.

Tree debris, including leaves, pine needles, and branches, poses another risk, especially during and after storm events. These materials can clog gutters and downspouts, leading to water accumulation on the roof. This standing water can seep under roofing materials, causing water damage to the roof deck and potentially leading to mold and mildew growth inside the attic and along interior walls.
Understanding these risks, it’s crucial to conduct regular roof inspections and maintenance to prevent minor issues from becoming major problems. Seaport Roofing specializes in identifying and addressing these common concerns, providing comprehensive solutions that range from regular cleaning to complete roof replacements when necessary. We advocate for proactive measures, including trimming overhanging tree branches, installing proper gutter systems to facilitate water runoff, and using algae-resistant shingles to extend the lifespan of your roof.
For homeowners in Savannah, GA, and the surrounding coastal areas, choosing a local roofing expert who is familiar with the unique climate and its challenges is essential. Seaport Roofing offers tailored advice and services to ensure that your roof is prepared to handle whatever the weather brings. Contact us today to schedule a roof inspection or to discuss maintenance plans that can help protect your home from the unpredictable Coastal Georgia weather.

Our Reviews

We have a 5-Star Rating on Google!

Kyle and his team did an incredible job. They were very thorough and informative about what they would do and were quick to respond to any questions we had. They showed up on time the day they were scheduled to and were able to finish the job that same day. I would highly recommend Seaport Roofing to anyone needing roof work.

After the recent hailstorm in Richmond Hill, Kyle came out less than 24 hours later to personally take a look at the damage on our house. He moved his schedule so he could then meet our home insurance company when they came out to assess our home. He was easy to work with, had everything done ahead of schedule, gave clear instructions on what to do and not to do and was extremely accommodating while we waiting for our insurance company to do their part. The roof looks great and I would highly recommend Kyle and his team to anyone.

Stephanie G.

Kyle and his crew are very professional. He was able to diagnose and correct my roofing issues in no time at all. He’s very professional in his approach and in the way he deals with his customers. I shopped around to find a roofer to fix my problem, and I must say he was far more professional than the others I talk to. His prices are reasonable and his crew cleans up when they’re done. I highly recommend him for your roofing needs.

Seaport Roofing did a phenomenal job repairing our roof. Their management was responsive, polite and helpful through the entire process. The team that came to work the house was prompt, completed the roof to standard in one day and were a class act to deal with! I would work with them again and recommend them to any other person needing roof repairs. Timely, affordable and very easy to work with! 5 stars from us.

Steven Beckman

Kyle and the team over at Seaport did a fantastic job replacing our business's roof. They were detail oriented, quick to respond, did what they said they were going to do and showed up on schedule. Overall, they did an outstanding job!

Brian Harn

Cannot say enough good things about this place. With so many different roofing companies, you never know what you're going to get. Trust the reviews on this one. Kyle and his team are thorough, attentive, efficient, and detail oriented. Would (and have already!) recommend Seaport to anyone needing a new roof.

Kyle responded to my request for an evaluation of a leak in my roof very quickly, we scheduled a time for him to come determine an appropriate resolution to my issue. It appears that components of my roof/flashing are beginning to fail, but instead of only giving me an option for replacement, he fixed the immediate issues buying me some time. I will be using Seaport Roofing to replace my roofing within the next couple of years!

Bill Herbes

I just had my roof replaced by Seaport Roofing. I live on the west coast and was unable to see the before roof. Within one day they came out and gave me an estimate on my roof replacement. They took pictures of my problem areas and called me and gave me a break down of my options. After the roof estimate was given and the decision was made to replace the roof, it was complete in a few days. During the installation, I was receiving text and pictures of the process.the price was below average of some of the other local companies.

Bryan Morrissey

Owner Kyle is a great guy and very hands-on. Great communicator and sticks to his word. He and his crew did wonderful work repairing our roof leak including taking down our chimney. Completed the work quickly and as scheduled. Will definitely be calling him again for a full roof replacement in a few years.
