It’s easy to neglect your roof’s maintenance, but doing this can cost your more later on. Keep your roof clean and in good condition is one of the most important things you can do as a homeowner, and it shouldn’t always be done by yourself. So when facing roofing problems, just call in your trusted roof repair contractor to do the job for you.
Having this type of problem on your roof shouldn’t be ignored, as water can quickly cause damage to your inner roofing system. It will cause the wooden trusses and rafters to rot, which can compromise the roof’s entire structural integrity. This problem won’t always be visible on the outside, but it can still happen anywhere on your roof. More common signs can be found through water stains in the walls and ceilings of your home and your trusted roofer can address these problems accordingly.
Proper ventilation is important in any residential roofing system as it helps in proper air circulation within your home. Intake vents are placed at the base of the roof such as the soffits or eaves to allow cool air to flow through, while the ridge vents are placed at the roof ridge for warm air (which naturally rises higher) to dissipate.
If your roof doesn’t have enough intake/exhaust vents installed, it can lead to heat and moisture buildup. This can damage the rafters, sheathing, insulation, and other parts of your roofing system. This can lead to mold and mildew problems, an increase in your monthly energy bills, and even a costly replacement. Make sure to have your roof inspected by a professional contractor to determine if you have enough vents installed.
Leaking, damaged, or severely deteriorated gutters can cause additional problems to your roof if they’re not replaced as soon as possible. This is because water can easily seep into your home through damaged gutters and downspouts and damage it over time. Be sure to have your gutters checked and maintained regularly to avoid further damage and costly repairs.
