Despite roofs being equipped to endure extreme weather conditions and various elements, eventually, it will be inevitable for them to deteriorate little by little. This will then make them more susceptible to damage. Here are some common reasons for failure.
1. Poor installation: Your roof condition can be immediately affected by the quality of your roofing contractor’s workmanship. Poor installation can cause damage and issues over time. This is a reminder that it pays to hire trained roofing professionals with enough experience and skills suitable for your roof concerns. Proper roof installation is a critical matter to your roof’s lifespan.
2. Defective roofing materials: It’s best to keep track of every part of your roofing system. Some materials may be defective over time due to adverse weather events. Make it a habit to schedule a roof maintenance inspection at least twice a year.
3. Moisture: When ignored over time, moisture can accumulate prompting serious damages to your roofing. Normally, moisture buildup attracts the growth of mold and mildew, which can eventually lead to rot. This rot can spread from your roof to the walls of your home, posing a threat to the integrity of the structure. On the other hand, leaks are also a problem that should be addressed immediately. It’s crucial to detect them in time so that fixes can be done to save you from spending double.
4. Trees: Although overlooked, if you fail to trim your tree branches regularly, they could reach your roof and create punctures on it. They can also rub on your roof causing abrasions on the surface of the shingles, ruining the protective layer of your roof.
