No matter the size or style of your roof, making sure you maintain it should be at the top of your priority list. But despite best efforts, roofs sometimes fail and need to be repaired or replaced entirely. Here are three common causes of roof failure.
Extreme weather can take a toll on your roof. Not only do powerful storms bring wind and rain that can damage or break parts of the roof, but hail from a severe thunderstorm has also been known to cause dents and punctures in various materials like asphalt shingles. Other forms of damage that need storm damage repair include extreme temperature fluctuations, snow accumulation leading to ice dams and ultraviolet radiation that causes discoloration over time.
Having a roof installed by contractors using poor-quality materials can also cause roofs to fail. Low-grade materials may not adequately protect your home from weather exposure, resulting in leaks and accelerated deterioration that could lead to costly repairs or premature replacement down the line.
Lack of Regular Inspections
Finally, one of the most common reasons for roof failure is the lack of regular inspections. Even if the weather-related issues and poor-quality materials listed above aren’t a concern for you and your home, it’s important to have experienced professionals inspect your roof at least once a year (or more depending on wear).
This way, any developing problems can be identified and addressed before they become expensive headaches.
