Many homeowners may not give their roof a second thought until someone asks them “just how important your roof is to you?” The question may seem silly, but it needs to be addressed for one simple reason: homeowners often overlook the importance of a good roofing construction and roofing ventilation as one of their home’s working components.
Imagine investing two hundred thousand of dollars in a real estate, you will approach your property as a valuable asset which requires modest oversight from time to time in order to assure you of maximized return. A proper inspection and review on whether or not your asset needs protection measures to be done to protect it against any potential damage should be done periodically – this is exactly what happens with your home. As a homeowner, you understand the importance of the protection measures needed to make your home a great place to live. You do all you should do to keep your asset at its best condition, but despite your best efforts, you manage to forget a part of your asset until it’s too late: your roof.
Out of sight, out of mind is what happens with the roof. Homeowners often overlook this important component until it fails and they get in trouble. With other parts of the home’s construction, homeowners can conveniently locate the problem and repair it right away before the damage becomes more serious due to the continuous maintenance done by them on a regular basis. But the roof? More often than not, homeowners cannot catch the damage as early as other parts of the home which often results in a complete replacement. That is exactly the moment they realize they have been neglecting one of the most important components in their home’s construction. The following is a list of the most common roofing problems homeowners must be aware of:
Our roof is our shield from the wind, snow, rain, hail, debris, and many more. This heavy work takes a toll on our roof, and all of the aforementioned condition always leads to one thing: moisture. The moisture that our roof is collected over a period of time does not only cause rot and mold which leads to leakage, but also shortens the roof’s lifespan. A periodic inspection and maintenance cannot only help you avoid leaks, but also help you avoid complete roof replacement that is extremely expensive.
Extreme weather, wind and storm can damage your roof by causing penetrations or punctures in the material of your roof. When punctured, your roof would not be able to properly protect you and your family members from the heat or cold.
Proper ventilation is an integral part of what makes your roof last longer. The correct installation will allow your roof to regulate proper ventilation, in which the warm air can escape though the top side of your roof and the cold air can instantly be drawn through the bottom side of it. Not only does the correct installation lead to proper ventilation, it also leads to better moisture level control.
