Early deterioration, water stains and mold growth, are just a few of the types of damage resulting from water penetration in residential roofing systems. Water is the number one enemy of almost any type of roofing material. Whether it’s actual water from heavy rains, moisture and water vapor from high levels of humidity, or snow and ice from seasonal weather changes.
Nobody wants their roof damaged by water. Here are a few tips from our experts at Moss Roofing on how to keep your roof safe from this common problem.Don’t Neglect Roof Repairs
It’s important to contact a roofing company as soon as you see any visible damage on a roof especially if it’s broken or missing shingles. Shingles are the only thing protecting the vulnerable underlayment from the elements and if you have areas where individual tabs have been knocked off, bent backward, or blown away, these could give rainwater a chance to penetrate into the roof deck and affect the assembly. Make sure you keep on top of any roof repairs you might need to avoid this problem.Sign Up for a Routine Maintenance Plan
Many roofing contractors offer inspection and maintenance agreements to help homeowners in the upkeep of their roof. This is important for two main reasons. One, a maintenance plan frees you of the responsibility of calling the roofers once a year for inspections. Admittedly, many homeowners only remember their contractors when their roof is already showing signs of problems. Two, a maintenance agreement can save you money and extend the life span of an existing roof.
