Minor roof problems should not be ignored, no matter how small. It is fairly common for homeowners to delay roof repairs because it seems like the problem isn’t as serious at first. How can a few cracked shingles and missing nails affect the inside of the home anyway?
This way of thinking is very normal, and sadly is also the root of more serious and expensive roofing issues. Our resident experts in roofing at WF Schmidt Construction Company, LLC are on a mission to make everyone understand that minor roofing issues can quickly get out of hand. These are some of the consequences that can happen if the necessary repairs are neglected and continuously ignored:
One of the very first complications encountered after years of roof neglect is leaking. The first sign of a leak forms on the ceiling. Blemishes and watermarks begin to form on the ceiling. At first the water will dry on its own, only leaving spots but eventually, the damage will spread.
Containing the leak by putting a bucket to catch the water is fine for a few days, but it is best to get a professional roofer to do a quick inspection. After they have seen the damage, a repair should be scheduled as soon as possible.
Mold And Mildew Growth
Allowing the leak to spread all over the house makes the home the perfect breeding ground for mold and mildew. Homes that are constantly damp and humid can quickly become overrun by mold which can lead to health complications. When the mold spreads even further, it can cause structural damage which can make the entire house unsafe for habitation.
The longer the problem is allowed to grow, the more complicated and expensive it comes to fix the issue. That is why we at WF Schmidt Construction Company, LLC always recommend homeowners to address all minor roofing problems right away. It is the best way to ensure everyone’s health and safety.
Decrease In Property Value
If you are planning to put your home in the market anytime in the future, neglecting the roof is a bad idea. A severely damaged roof will greatly affect the selling price of the home because potential buyers know how expensive it is to repair or replace the roof. Those who want to ensure their investment doesn’t go to waste must maintain their entire home including the roof to make a profit during the sale.
Schedule A Roof Inspection With Us
Even if there are no visible signs of roof damage, it is in your best interest to have a professional do an inspection. This is highly recommended to homeowners who can’t remember the last time they had a roofer inspect their roof.
