Roofing systems are designed to endure various elements. But over time, they can deteriorate little by little, making them more and more susceptible to damage. Roof quality and weather events are major contributors to how quickly your roof can age. And, as it degrades, you are likely to encounter some issues with your roofing.
When ignored over time, moisture can accumulate and cause severe damage to your roofing. Typically, moisture buildup attracts the growth of mold and mildew, which can eventually lead to rot. This rot can spread from your roof to the walls of your home, posing a threat to the integrity of the structure.
Leaks are also a problem that should be addressed immediately. It’s crucial to detect them in time so that repairs can be done to save your roof from major damage.
Poor Quality of Installation or Repair
Make sure that the roofing contractors you hire are trustworthy, and they won’t cut corners. Otherwise, the quality of the roof repair or installation might be substandard. When poorly built or repaired, your roof won’t be able to perform well when it matters the most. You might also not be able to maximize its lifespan since it will likely be prone to damage or other roofing issues.
Tree branches are sometimes overlooked. But if you fail to trim them regularly, they could reach your roof and create punctures on it. They can also rub on your roof and cause abrasions on the surface of the shingles, which can wear away the protective layer of your roof. Lastly, tree limbs can fall on your roof and create serious damage. That’s why you should be diligent in trimming back the trees away from your roof.
