Minimal roof damage will turn into a huge problem with more damage from other external conditions. A tiny discolored section on your wall can be an initial warning of roof leakage. But, as you continue to dither on your roof repairs, the damage gets worse and will cost you more when you decide to fix your roof. If you note any minor cracks, wet ceiling, small leakages, or anything different on your roof, the best decision is to hire a qualified roof inspector to look into your roof. Ensure that they have inspected the whole roof immediately to mitigate any potential damage.
There are a few ways in which a damaged roof can affect you. A small gap or hole in your roof may not interfere with your daily activities but it can lead to a sudden surge in your heating or air conditioning bills. This is due to the constant flow of hot air into the house or vice versa, which then leads to a spike in the energy usage in the house.
Mildew and mold are common challenges that homeowners who have leaking roofs face. This is a problematic situation for any household and it will directly impact the health of your pets and family. Minor discoloration on your roof or wall is an early sign of the onset of mold, and if not dealt with immediately it can become a full-blown disaster.
Moisture from the roof leak can seep down through the walls and come into contact with wires within the walls leading to the breakers tripping, which then damages electrical appliances or even triggers a house fire. A roof repair will regulate the moisture content and return the roof to full functionality thus protecting the wiring in the home. Let Southern Star Roofing handle your roof repairs. Call us today!
