Residential and Commercial Roof Repair
Your roof will eventually fall apart due to wear and tear. It’s unavoidable. The trick is to make sure it doesn’t fall apart before its time. You should keep an eye out for the following:
Weather is a leading cause of roof damage. Sun, wind, snow, ice, and hail can all hurt the longevity of your roof. Bad weather can cause drying and shingle deterioration. It can also lead to the softening and eventual weakening of roofs. To prevent weather damage, it’s very important to have a roofing system in place with proper drainage and weatherproofing.
Tree branches and limbs are a frequent cause of roof damage. It’s not just branches though. Anything that can fall from trees can create problems for a roof. This includes leaves, pine needles, and pine cones. Thankfully, tree damage can be easily avoided as long as you regularly prune away tree branches that could snap. The more you can trim away, the safer your roof will be.
Animals can be a big issue for roofs. Depending on where you live or work, you can run into problems with mice, rats, squirrels, raccoons, birds, and bats. Be sure to inspect your roofs for evidence of animals. This includes shedding, nests, and droppings. If animals aren’t dealt with, they will tear away shingles and vent covers in an attempt to find food and warmth.
All roof damage can lead to cracking which will lead to water damage. Water damage happens when moisture enters your roof and slowly erodes its inner workings. This moisture buildup can become mold, which can be harmful to you and your family. To prevent water damage, it’s important to do regular inspections of your home, particularly after winter.
