Why is it important to maintain a roof?Crown Roofing
Why is it important to maintain a roof? A roof is like a shield, it protects a building from snowfalls, rains, and storms. But due to that exposure to weather threats, your roof requires special care. Even if it does look perfectly fine to you, there could be unpleasant surprises upon a closer examination. Before you run away to grab a ladder and try to climb your roof, Crown Roofing & Masonry wants to remind you that a roof check-up should be conducted only by professionals. Believe us, this is not an easy task! A regular roof examination is the best way to reduce the risk of mold appearing. Even a tiny crack on a roof surface is enough to increase the moisture inside your home, creating perfect conditions for mold growth. Besides the health risks, it can easily cause dangerous structural damage. Please, remember that should you want to sell the house, mold and leaking can significantly decrease the price. A damaged roof can be a reason of thermal leaks in your house. As soon as the problem is fixed, you will be able to enjoy a steady home temperature. One of the most convincing reasons to schedule a check-up is a possible need to prove your case to the insurance company. A broken shingle that wasn’t replaced on time could be used as a proof against you. Don’t save money on roof maintenance. A new roof can be checked once in a few years, but old ones require regular examinations, especially after natural hazards. It is a wise investment in the future.
