A roof is built to protect your family and belongings against the weather elements. But having a new roof isn’t enough, as it needs to be regularly maintained to keep it in good condition. However, you may have a few concerns about your roof that’s too troublesome to handle on your own. Fortunately, as long as it’s maintained by professionals in roofing and siding replacement, your roof will last well beyond its expected lifespan. ExteriorPros shares some of the most common roofing concerns and how we deal with them professionally:
Moisture and Water Leaks
A subtle amount of moisture is normal on your windows and patio doors. But if you see both moisture and water leaks on your walls and ceiling, they can become serious roofing concerns that need to be addressed immediately. They won’t always be immediately visible unless you check the attic yourself and look for signs of moisture and water leaks. These include water stains as well as mold and rot on the wooden parts of your inner roof structure.
During winter, the soffit and fascia boards will be most vulnerable to rot if your gutters don’t drain water runoff properly. If even just a single ice dam forms, it’s more than enough to rot the soffit or fascia board once the water starts to melt. Of course, you can easily spot the rot and damage in your soffit and fascia boards, you’ll still need to hire professional soffit contractors to repair and replace the affected components properly. They’ll even know how to spot the hidden damage while also checking other parts of your roof for sagging and other types of damage and address them properly to prevent further damage to your home.
Subpar Installation and Repairs
Shoddy or subpar roof work can be very costly later on because the problems that come with it won’t always be visible until years later when the damage becomes too visible to ignore. The damage can affect other parts of your home as well, and by the time they appear on your roof, you’ll need to get extensive repairs or a full replacement!
