As a homeowner, it’s important to have a basic understanding of your roofing system in terms of its vulnerabilities and the types of repairs and maintenance it’s likely to need over the course of its service life. Today, Vertex Roofing Contractors Inc., one of the top roofing contractors in the area, highlights the four most common reasons roofers are called.
- Poor Roof Ventilation – Ventilation plays a critical role in the health of any roofing system. If you live in an older home, it may not have the best roofing ventilation, which can allow condensation to build up and weaken the structure of your roof. This can lead to mold growth and other issues in your home. Fortunately, an experienced roofer will know how to improve the ventilation of your system.
- Weather Damage – Weather damage is something that you can’t always predict. If your home sustains storm damage, call a roof repair professional immediately. They can provide emergency repairs, help you with your insurance claims and then provide a long-term solution once the bad weather passes.
- Leak – Leaky roofs are one of the most common reasons roofers are called out to homes. An experienced roofer will know how to identify the source of the leak and provide the appropriate repair. Keep in mind that the source of the leak may be far away from where you actually spot the water damage in your home.
- Neglected Gutters – Gutter maintenance is a tedious job no homeowner relishes. But it’s very important. Without proper maintenance, your gutters can become clogged, leading to water damage in your roof and other parts of your home.
