Prompt roof repair can help prolong the life of your roofing system–but there will come a time when this solution won’t be enough. Before this becomes the case, you’ll need to start planning your roof replacement. It’s never a good idea to delay this project–it will cause you more problems down the road if you do. Expert Contracting, the premier residential roofing company in the area, shares what can happen when you put off a replacement.
- Complete Roof Failure. An old and failing roof is generally more susceptible to serious leaks, which leave both your system and home vulnerable to water damage. In fact, when the underside of the roof is constantly exposed to water, mold and rot will soon develop in its structure, weakening its integrity. This, in turn, may cause the roof to sag, making it a huge safety hazard. Of course, you’ll want to avoid anything that can put you and your family’s safety at risk, so move fast and get a roof replacement.
- Increased Exposure to Health Risks. We’ve mentioned before how mold can compromise the structural integrity of roofing systems. But the fact is that their presence can also lead to a number of health problems. The same goes for rodent infestation. Pests find an old and failing roof easy to access. We’re not going to list the health risks posed by a rodent infestation, just that you’ll want to avoid it at all costs by getting a prompt roof replacement.
- Extensive (and Expensive) Restoration Work. The longer you put off a roof replacement, the more expensive the overall costs. That’s because, by this time, the damage won’t be limited to just the roofing system–it may have already affected the rest of your home, as well. Aside from the cost of a new roof and its installation, you’ll also need to cover the expenses of repairing and restoring your home.
