A responsible homeowner will take pains to ensure that the roof remains in good condition throughout its lifespan. So, it’s important to do maintenance as soon as your roof show signs of issues.
Spotting curled or broken shingles should push any homeowner to seek immediate repair assistance. A damaged shingle that is visible from the ground might mean there are others on your roofing surface that may also need to be fixed. Shingles form your roof’s first line of defense against the elements, and, if they aren’t in as good a condition as they should be, worse problems may occur.
Mold and Leaks
Evidence of mold growth and leaks should be taken very seriously. Mold growth is indicative of long-standing moisture retention problems in your roofing system, which, if continued to be left unaddressed, may cause structural damage to your home and health problems for its occupants as well. Leaky roofs don’t just go away on their own. A proper roof inspection needs to be performed in order to pinpoint what exactly might be causing water to penetrate your home and resolve that issue before it gets worse.
Don’t forget that gutters form part of your roofing system, too. They play a huge part in ensuring that water is properly drained from the surface of your roof and prevents pooling from occurring. Have your gutters cleaned regularly, particularly after severe weather hits your area.
