A roof protects your home from nature’s elements. There are many reasons a damaged roof can cost you money. Initially, a slightly damaged roof may not seem to compromise the integrity of your home. As time progresses, and the damage becomes more extensive, the damaged roof can cost you a substantial amount of money. The best protocol is to catch the problems as they occur. Maintain your roof. Inspect your roof for damage when the weather permits, so the weather doesn’t create more problems.
Roof Damage and How it Costs You
- Water Leaks – once they start, they continue to get worse. Even a small blemish can turn into a costly leak. Fix them when you find them.
- Increased Energy Bills – the same holes that let water in let the cold air in during the winter and let hot air in during the summer. Stop leaks to stop wasting money on energy bills.
- Mold – wet roofing layers can cause mold. Mold is a problem that’s extremely expensive to take care of once it sets in. Water and mold compromise the structural integrity of the home.
- Animal and Pest Infestation – if damage to your roof is extreme and holes are large enough, you could find insect colonies, rodents, and other pests.
Increased Repair Costs
The longer roofing problems go unnoticed, the more significant the issues become. Repairs for the severe issues continue to rise, ultimately resulting in the need for a full roof replacement.
