How to Keep a Sturdy Roof and Avoid Having to Call the Roofing Services?
Welcome back! This is the second part of our research on the most common reasons for roofing problems. Previously, we talked about the dangers of excess moisture and poor maintenance. However, there are other things that can damage your roof as well. As an experienced roofer, I have dealt with all of them, and this is what I can tell you about the last three factors:
Wind is a major threat. Severe wind storms can be incredibly destructive. Unlike rain, wind does not cause water damage and deterioration over time. Instead of that, wind just rips things apart. It can loosen the shingles of an asphalt shingled roof, and rip them out completely. Little by little, strong winds can weaken the roof’s structure, until the nails can no longer hold the shingles in place. In such cases, you can see the wind ripping off entire rows of shingles. If that happens to you, call the roofing services immediately! Otherwise, your roof could start to leak.
Construction defects. Designer flaws and installation mistakes can lead to various complications that can cost you a lot of money. Such problems can be pretty severe and complicated. They can cause your roof to sag, lean, collapse, or start to accumulate rain water. Naturally, water leads to mold and water damage, so we don’t recommend you allow that to happen.
Crisis situations and natural disasters can also be a serious threat. Such accidents can cause a lot of damage both to your roof and the rest of your home. Floods, lightnings, earthquakes, wildfires, and so on can destroy your home completely. Luckily for all of us, such events are not so common.
