ROOF LEAKS – A THREAT TO YOUR HOME’S STRUCTURAL INTEGRITY

Roof leaks are one of the most common things that a homeowner has to deal with. However, that doesn’t mean that you should consider leaks as a normal thing. If left neglected, roof leaks can pose a significant threat to your home’s structural integrity. Learn more about how roof leaks can affect the rest of your home straight from the best roofer in the area.

Softening Roof Supports

Aside from the shingles and the underlayment, other roof components can be very vulnerable to moisture damage. If wooden beams soak up enough moisture, they can suffer from wood rot and get weaker over time, posing a risk of structural collapse. Our team can check for signs of moisture damage on your roof’s structural components so appropriate action can be taken should any problems be detected.

Weakening Your Siding

As the water from leaks seeps past the roof structure, it also starts posing a threat to the sides of the house. Moisture in the walls can cause metal screws and fasteners holding the siding panels in place to deteriorate. To prevent moisture from damaging your siding, you will need help from a reputable siding contractor like us.

A Feeble Foundation

Once water gets to the foundations of the home, things take a turn for the worse. The water eventually finds its way to the ground closest to your foundations, causing it to get weaker. Because weak foundations increase the risk of major structural collapse, you’re much better off having the roof fixed before it reaches a point where the very foundations are compromised.

A Professional Undertaking

Because of the nature of structural problems caused by moisture damage, performing inspections and fixes on your own is not a good idea. If you want signs of roof leaks detected early and fixed effectively, your best option is to get help from a reputable roofing company like us.
