Roof replacement can do a lot of things for your home. But because it’s a significant investment, many homeowners tend to delay or avoid them completely. Unfortunately, roofing issues don’t go away just because you don’t want to deal with them or don’t even know they are there in the first place, resulting in even more problems.
These problems include:
A damaged roof will leak, no doubt. Just how fast though will depend on how severe the damage is. A replacement is a quick way to address this issue but many homeowners don’t even realize they need one until it’s too late. This is why routine roof checks are also ideal–they let you spot problems early and even before they take hold, allowing you to address them effectively.
2. Structural Damage
Leaks left to worsen will eventually lead to structural damage, as moisture continues to seep into roof decking and other supporting structures. If you have a leak severe enough to warrant a call to a roofer, you’re already looking at extensive damage to your roofing. Structural damage is a big deal because it may have started with your roof but it’s not going to end there, affecting your entire home down the line.
3. Lower Home Value and Curb Appeal
An old roof will show it’s age. If it’s not an aging roof that you have but a badly damaged one, it will still be unsightly. Either way, you stand to lose home value and curb appeal, given your roofing system accounts for a majority of your home’s exterior and greatly affects your property’s overall function.
