Are Expensive Problems Lurking on your Roof? 

Are Expensive Problems Lurking on your Roof?

Once the hurricane season is behind us, you may think you don't need to worry about your roof. But the cool and dry weather we get during winter makes it the perfect time to check it's in good order.

A damaged roof allows water to seep into your home, which can cause leaks, peeling paint, and rotting wood in addition to costly mold damage. Get a damaged roof repaired before heavy summer rain returns, and you'll avoid these severe and expensive problems.

What to Look For

Here are the top three issues you should look for:

  1. Missing or damaged tiles or shingles
    Tiles and shingles are the first defense against water getting into your home. Look for signs of damage such as cracked tiles or crumbling granules on your shingles. Be sure to check for shingles that curl up at the edges.

  2. Damp or compacted insulation
    Your insulation is key to ensuring your home stays cool during the summer. If a leak has gone unnoticed, or you've had condensation in your attic, your insulation may be damaged and won't work as it should.

  3. Blocked or damaged gutters
    Your gutters deal with massive amounts of rainwater during the summer. If they're clogged or damaged, rainwater can get through and soak into your walls.

The best way to avoid problems is to have your roof inspected by professionals. Spotting issues and getting small, inexpensive repairs taken care of now will save you money on more costly repairs in future.
