Residential Roofing Maintenance Tips
Most people don’t jump for joy at the thought of home maintenance, but it’s imperative that you maintain your roof…or you’ll suffer the consequences. Unfortunately, most homeowners take their roofs for granted and only think about them when disaster strikes. Instead of letting your roof fall into disrepair and incur ancillary costs, keep in mind the following top reasons to proactively maintain your roof.
Avoid Water Damage and Mold
Failing to adequately maintain your roof means that your risking water damage and mold. In the winter, sheets of ice can form under insulating layers of snow, and over time, the ice takes it’s toll on the roof. In addition, heavy rains, thunderstorms, and hail can cause small holes and damage to your roof. Though it may not seem like a big deal, even a small hole can allow enough moisture to seep through your roof to give mold a foothold in your attic.
From there, mold can spread throughout the rest of your home and cause a bad odor. As we all know, a mold is extremely hazardous to your health, and it can cause respiratory related illness. It’s not safe to live in a home overtaken by mold, and it is a costly endeavor to remediate mold once it has been given the opportunity to flourish. It’s much cheaper to maintain your roof than to try to combat a mold outbreak.
Protect the Value of Your Home
Even if you’re not considering selling your home in the near future, you’ll still want to stay on top of roof maintenance to the value of your property doesn’t plummet. Not only does an old, worn out roof decrease the value of your property, but leaks can cause further damage that causes a property to depreciate. The housing market is constantly fluctuating, and to stand the best chance of breaking even (or even making a profit), you need to make sure your roof is well taken care of.
Avoid Hidden Surprises
Regular inspections and maintenance can help reveal problems that you didn’t even know existed. Instead of letting these surprises crop up in the future, it’s better to keep an eye out for them in the present. Sometimes, damage to your roof won’t materialize in the form of leaks. For instance, plenty of homeowners doesn’t realize they have corroded roof decks because there aren’t any visible holes or evidence of water damage in their attic. Water, corrosion, and old age can damage the roof deck, wood blocking, structural steel, and other similar materials.
Cut Down on Future Repair Time
If you’re like most people, you don’t enjoy having construction professionals banging tools on your roof. Most people want us in and out as quickly as possible – which is completely understandable. Sometimes repairs can be a bit of an inconvenience. However, when you care for your roof and ensure that the decking, insulation, wood, and other materials are in good shape, it will drastically reduce the time needed to complete the project by decreasing a number of total repairs.
Enjoy Peace of Mind
Our homes are the centerpieces of our family life, but even with homeowner’s insurance, many people fret about maintaining their homes. And if you don’t maintain your roof, the sky might be literally falling. Life is full of surprises, and it seems like anything that can go wrong will go wrong. But as they say, fate favors the prepared. Actively maintaining your roof will give you the peace of mind that you won’t run into any major leaks or catastrophic damages that will put a dent in your bank account.
