Keep reading below to learn more.
Don’t Wait Until It Is Too Late
Like most issues dealing with home maintenance, it is important to stay on top of any repair or maintenance jobs that may need to be completed. Your home is your sanctuary and, as such, making sure that it is as structurally sound as possible helps to ensure that you come home to a space that is comfortable, protected, and safe from the elements. Below, we have listed out a few more signs that show your roof needs repairs.
- Leaks: While we hope that your roof never gets to this point, if you notice that leaks have started to develop, this is a major sign that your roof needs to be repaired. Typically, faulty shingles are responsible for a leaky roof. As the shingles begin to fail, moisture is able to penetrate the barrier of your roof. If this is already happening in your home, please contact us as soon as possible. Not only are leaks annoying, over time they can cause major damage to the support beams of your roof. Barring the fact that this affects the structural integrity of your home, moisture can also lead to the formation of mold, a major health hazard and one of the leading causes of indoor air pollution.
- Sagging Roof Deck: Your home’s roof deck is the wooden surface that is placed over the support beams of your attack and is the surface that shingles are fastened too. If you notice that your roof appears to be sagging in places, this almost always means that your roof deck has become compromised due to water damage. If left unattended, your roof will eventually fail and, in some cases, can break through the ceiling of your home. Not only is this a cosmetic eyesore, it can also be dangerous for anyone who is in the home because, if the roof falls through, a lot of debris tends to come with it.
