3 Risks You Face By Neglecting Roof Repairs
It is easy to make the mistake, as a Newark homeowner, and fail to take care of roof repairs, in a timely fashion. However, what you need to be aware of are the very real risks you take by skipping these repair needs or even procrastinating too long.
Could This Happen to You?
Your roof is your home's first line of defense against the elements. So, it is important that it be kept in tiptop shape.
If not, you could end up with problems like these:
- The biggest threat you face is having to replace your roof before it should be time. A roof that is left in a state of disrepair can very quickly begin to deteriorate. Neglecting repair needs compromises the structural integrity of your roof. This can also lead to damage to your insulation, attic, ceiling and more.
- If your roof is damaged, or even the insulation below it, you are very likely paying much more for heating and cooling than you should be. Neglected repair needs and damaged insulation make your home less energy-efficient. That not only drives up your utility costs, it puts added strain on your HVAC system and makes your household less environmentally responsible.
- The threat of a leak is one of the most potentially damaging threats to your roofing system. Moisture intrusion is a big problem for rooftops, as well as the materials and components below. Leaks and water lead to issues like mildew, mold and rot.
