Why you should never ignore roof maintenance
June 15, 2020
Keeping your roof’s durability intact can sometimes slip from your long to-do list. However, it is essential to the longevity and safety of your home. To ensure your roof remains fully functional, keep these issues top-of-mind:
1. Leakage can cause damage and mold
If tears and holes begin to appear in your roof, it’s only a matter of time before water finds its way into your home. And, if you’re already seeing wet spots in your ceiling, the damage has been done: the structure of your roof has likely been compromised, and mold spores may have begun to grow. This can lead to a variety of health issues, including chronic bronchitis and other serious respiratory concerns.
2. Increased energy bills
Have your energy bills increased over the years? If so, your roof could be the culprit. When maintenance is ignored, holes and leaks can cause heating and air conditioning to escape from your home. With this, your units must work harder, creating a spike in your monthly payments.
3. Lowered property value
Thinking of a move in the future? If so, your roof must be in proper working condition; trying to sell a home with a damaged roof will decrease your property value. If you’ve avoided proper maintenance, you may have to pay for new owners to have it replaced—or sell your home for less.
The key takeaway? Don’t wait until it’s too late. Ensure you have yearly maintenance visits from a professional, such as any of our experts at All Stars. To book an appointment, contact us today.
