Today we will discuss the top factors of roof damage. The roof is undeniably the most significant structure of any home. Roofs keep out the elements so that you and your family are as safe as possible. If you ever notice roof damage, it’s a problem that you want to address immediately. We’re not only experts at home remodeling or window replacement, but we can also repair your roof or install a new roof, if necessary. Here are a few of the many reasons why your roof may have damage.
Shingles That Aren’t as Sturdy as They Used to Be
The older your home is, the more likely that its roofing is aging too. After some time, roofs can become brittle and out of warranty. If you find that your roof has needed many repairs in a short period, replacement may be necessary, and we can assess that for you.
Never Addressing Roof Damage
When you don’t address roof damage when necessary, some issues can become worse and costlier to fix. If you notice leaks or cracks, it’s best if you never prolong calling us. You should ensure that your roof gets annual inspections, a sweeping now and then, and ensure that gutters and downspouts are clean. If you would prefer not to make the dangerous trek onto your roof, you can hire us to clean it.
Inclement weather can do quite the damage to a roof. Ice dams are ridges of ice that form at the edge of your roof and prevents melting snow from draining off your roof. If untreated, ice dams can tear gutters and loosen shingles. Also, water that doesn’t drain properly can seep its way into your home. Plus, depending on the severity of the winter weather, hail can hit and hurt a roof. Wind and rainstorms can do the same. If you know that severe weather has damaged your roof, we suggest that you don’t hold off on a roof repair.
A Lot of Heat
The benefit and disadvantage of living in Maryland are that you experience all types of weather. For the person who enjoys snow as much as a warm summer, living in Maryland is ideal. However, unpredictable weather can take a toll on a roof. UV lights and intense heat can cause shingles to melt. This type of roof damage is avoidable by ventilating and insulating your roof and attic.
