If you think your roof is not important, you are definitely mistaken because your roof is your first line of protection against strong winds, heavy rain pour, extreme heat, and biting cold. That is why you should make sure it is damage free. So, we prepared the five most common roof problems you should watch out for:
Some birds just enjoy staying on a roof, which could be a bad sign. It would give you a huge problem because those birds might start scratching and chirping on your rooftop. So, if you are aware that there are birds who are fond of staying on your roof, make sure to take the initiative to shoo those birds away. The failure to notice this incident, or worse, the voluntary act of ignoring it will only bring you a larger problem. These birds may end up bringing a bigger flock to your roof.
- Ponding Water
Water that ponds on your roof for a long period of time when overlooked would eventually damage the roof material, causing it to decay or deteriorate, which is why building a roof based on an ideal angle which allows rainwater to freely flow downward is imperative. Deciding on building a flat roof would increase the risk of water ponding.
- Lack of maintenance
We sometimes think that our roof is not significant and that it does not need any maintenance, which is why most people simply ignore its importance. However, like all other parts of your house, it also needs to be maintained to prevent damage.
- Deteriorated Shingles
Shingles are one the most common roofing material prone to damage. Shingles, when not properly maintained, easily decays and deteriorates. One of the main causes for the damage is high wind which pulls shingles away from the roof‘s structure which exposes its underlayment. This can permit moisture and other harsh elements to sip into the structure and cause decay.
Yes, trees can give your house shade and make your home cooler, especially during the hottest season. It can also give you fresh breezy air that can make you feel comfortable. However, trees can also give you a problem, specifically with regards to your roof. Trees grow, and once its branches reach your roof, it can possibly damage it. Do not wait till some huge chunks of branches fall or when branches embed itself all over your roof. Regularly trim off overgrowing branches.
