The Disastrous Consequences of Delaying Roof Repair

Category: Roofs


The Disastrous Consequences of Delaying Roof RepairYour New England family relies upon the protection, security, and comfort that your roof provides.  Your roof is the first line of defense against inclement weather.  At all times, your roof is battling adverse weather conditions.  As such, it is inevitable that every roof will eventually deteriorate, even those made from the highest quality materials and installed in the most proficient fashion.

The problem with natural roof deterioration is that the damage is generally non-apparent to property owners.  While the damage to your roof lingers, it becomes exacerbated.  By the time New England homeowners recognize roof damage, substantial and costly repairs are generally needed.

The highly trained and professionally licensed roofers at Advanced Metal Roofing have the knowledge, skill, and services to extend the longevity of your roof’s performance through routine inspection, maintenance, and roof repair.  By remaining diligent when it comes to roof repairs and inspections, you can rest assured that your New England family will have a roof that provides the security and comfort they have come to expect and deserve.

Failing to properly maintain your New England roof can lead to numerous issues.  Here are just a few of the common problems that result from postponing roof repairs.

Common Problems Prevented by Roof Repair

The first and perhaps worst consequence of delaying roof repairs is that your roof may begin to leak.  Leaks initially start of as small, non-apparent problem spots on your roof.  As they are left unrepaired, the natural solvent and warping affects of water causes the problem to get worse and worse.

Eventually, if a leak is left unrepaired the problem spreads from your roof to other portions of your home.  Also, an unrepaired roof can lead to total roof failure, necessitating an entire replacement of your residential roof.

Once leaks are present in your roof, the chance of mold growth in your home increases exponentially.  Mold thrives in damp environments.  A compromised roof is the perfect incubation habitat for mold growth.  Mold growth can spread to other portions of your home.  Mold accelerates the damage to your New England roof.   Mold growth and the resulting spores can reduce the quality of your indoor air, causing allergic reactions, respiratory illnesses, and in some cases producing toxins.

Another health hazard that can result from a damaged roof is the potential presence of insects and vermin within your roofing system.  As damage areas become larger, pests can easily infiltrate your home.  This can lead to unhealthy insect or rodent infestations, which in turn requires a New England homeowner to hire not only a roofing repair expert but also a pest control contractor.

As always, it is best to have roof repairs done before problems escalate.  Apparent damage to your roof should be repaired immediately.  The experts at Advanced Metal Roofing recommend that your New England roof be inspected at least once every three years.  Their highly trained professionals can identify non-apparent problem spots and repair your roof before damage becomes extensive and costly.
