Now that you have bought your dream home, it’s important to know that home-owning involves upkeep and repair, particularly when it comes to your roof. Depending on the condition of your home, you may need to service your roof regularly throughout its lifespan. The roofing material, roofing contractor you hire, and your location are vital factors that determine if the roof could be more or less prone to damage.
As a homeowner, there are some types of damages you may have to deal with and all require some roof repair. This post will outline common roofing problems you need to know.
When your neighbour decides to trim or cut that 30-ft tree in their backyard, and it falls on your roof, this destruction is considered structural damage. This form of damage includes significant roof impairments like debris from windstorms, a fallen tree, and many more. The severity of the damage varies from one incident to another, meaning the repair method your contractor uses will differ too.
Do you reside in an area that suffers from tropical or high-wind storms? Have you ever experienced a blow off? Usually, this happens when the wind blows with high-speed and force, leading to roof destruction. Tiles, shingles and other materials can get blown off. Mostly, blow off occurs in the section that’s exposed to an open area where the wind gains speed without hindrance.
The same way a roof has a lifespan, all the roofing materials you pick for the project also need replacing. Nonetheless, sometimes other factors expedite the deterioration process of your roofing material. Materials like wood or asphalt shingles can display signs of wear like fading, cracking, displacement, buckling, and curling. This kind of damage affects specific areas of the roof but sometimes the damage can be extensive, and you may need to replace all the roofing materials.
Though there are numerous kinds of roofing damage, common and uncommon, a professional roofing contractor should be able to indicate if the damage is extensive or not, and whether it requires replacement or repair, and to what degree.
