Your home is undeniably one of your biggest and most cherished investments. You love your family’s haven of security and you want to keep the family warm and dry. So, don’t wait for a leak to cause you to think about the roof overhead. Preventive maintenance, inspection, and roof replacement at the right time saves valuable money. It also affords you peace of mind. Need a little more incentive? Here are three reasons you can’t put off replacing your roof.
1. Leaks Cause Water Damage
A leaking roof inevitably leads to water damage in other parts of your home. Water can penetrate the surface of the roof and saturate the insulation underneath which destroys its thermal resistance. Wet insulation also can directly contribute to the deterioration of other roofing components.
2. Mold and Mildew
None of us want to think of those two words in relation to our home. Mold and mildew buildup is often a direct result of water damage from a leaking roof. When attic insulation gets wet, it is not only virtually useless in its R-value (resistance to heat flow), but can trigger mold and mildew growth.
3. Becomes More Expensive
The longer you put it off, the more expensive the project will be due to the additional damaged areas needing to be fixed. Mold and mildew remediation is extremely costly. If roof decking is rotted, it will also need to be replaced.
When you upgrade your roof with superior, energy-saving shingles you are increasing energy efficiency. And curb appeal is amplified by replacing an old, dilapidated roof with a stunning, new aesthetically pleasing one.
Upgrades to your home, especially a new roof, are always a solid investment. Don’t wait to replace your roof until damage occurs. Be proactive, not reactive.
The good news is you don’t have to do this alone. Rely on a trusted and dependable roofing contractor to guide you.
