Roof maintenance allows professionals to inspect your roof and look for any small or moderate damage that can shorten its lifespan. With years of wear and exposure to various weather conditions, your roof will inevitably need a replacement at some point.
When that time comes, make sure you don’t delay replacing your roof. Otherwise, your home might suffer any of these four consequences.
1. Severe Water Damage
A failing roof is highly susceptible to leaks and water damage. During heavy rainfall, water could infiltrate your home and soak into wooden structures, causing mold growth to develop. Leaks can also lead to electrical hazards, so make sure to repair them right away.
2. Wood Rot
Roof materials that are reaching the end of their lifespan will put your safety at risk. If the wooden components of your roof are rotted, make sure to call a roofer to address the issue immediately. If you ignore wood rot, this could eventually weaken your structural supports and result in roof collapse.
3. Poor Indoor Air Quality
Molds in the attic can affect your home’s indoor air quality. Mold spores can travel from your attic down to your living spaces, so you have to address water damage or humidity issues as soon as possible. Some signs that mold has already spread in your living spaces include dark marks on your walls and ceiling and a strong, musty smell.
4. Lower Property Value
If you plan on selling your home, experts will likely recommend repairing or replacing your roof to improve your property value. A home with a new roof is usually easier to market, and it attracts more leads – giving you a better chance of finding an ideal buyer and getting a good price.
