Let’s face it. It’s no fun when emergencies force us to repair our roofs. Roof repairs always seem to pop up when we can least afford the time and inconvenience. Anything from a falling tree to rain and hail damage can end up sucking both your wallet and your free time dry. That’s why you want it done right the first time, so you don’t have to spend your time, money and energy to do it again.
A Repair in Time Saves Nine
Which brings us to our next point, the faster you catch problems in your roof, the easier they are to repair! Over time, minor problems can turn into major damage if we don’t fix them first. A small leak can turn into a major gusher as the water wears away the material underneath your shingles. There are three major problems that can lead to these serious problems with your roof:
- Loss of water tightness in your flashing — Your flashing is designed to make sure that the spaces between your roof sections, materials and projections are water tight and protected from leaks and damage. If your flashing is poorly installed or designed, or if it is damaged by wind, it can be easy to miss the small leaks that develop around the loss of your formerly tight seal. These leaks will eventually lead to wood rot, mold or structural damage that could leave you to needing a full roof replacement years before you should.
- Weather damage to shingles — Snow, rain, heat and gloom may not stop the U.S. Postal Service from performing, but it will stop your roof from performing for sure over time. Hail is one of the biggest culprits, but acid rain, air pollution and especially snow accumulation harm your shingles too. Even seemingly gentle sunshine damages them over time. Here in Doylsetown, Pennsylvania, we face all of these weather-related roof problems and more.
- Wind — Strong storms are your roof’s biggest nemesis. A big wind can throw debris against your roof and even remove some of the materials altogether. It can also loosen the nails that hold down your shingles and make them more vulnerable to the next storm. If you are in a windy or storm prone area, it’s important to check your roof very often and after every storm.
Of course, the worst culprit any roof faces is poor maintenance. The more often you inspect and repair your roof, the less often you will face a full replacement. However, even well-maintained roofs will still need to be replaced every 25 to 50 years depending on the kind of materials they are made from.
