Your roof can get damaged for various reasons. Some can be due to natural elements while others are from poor maintenance or neglect. When your roof is experiencing issues, you must contact your local roofing company immediately.
Even newly installed roofs can sustain storm damage. Windstorms send flying debris that can puncture holes in your roof. You can minimize these instances by trimming the trees around your house and have your roof repaired as soon as you see signs of damage.
Most older homes don’t have great roof ventilation. Poor ventilation will lead to condensation buildup and weaken your roof’s structure. Moisture can also result in mold growth. Consider hiring professional roofers to install a better ventilation system if the problem persists. Proper air circulation will prevent condensation and its negative effects.
Flashings are placed under your shingles and the fixtures on your roof. Water can seep into your attic if they crack due to weather or neglect. It’s a common issue with missing or cracked shingles. However, homeowners usually consider this as a cosmetic issue. Leaks due to flashing damage can compromise your roof’s structural integrity and make your living spaces uncomfortable.
Poor Gutter Maintenance
