Since unpredictable spring weather can cause a lot of roof damage, The Warwick Roofers explains why now is the time to do something about it.
WARWICK, RI, USA, April 15, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Waking up to a water stain or a roof leak through the ceiling is not something homeowners should take lightly. This is a sign of a major problem with the roof that a qualified roofing company should fix as soon as possible before further damage occurs. But visible signs of roof problems shouldn’t be the only thing that motivates customers to have their roof inspected. Unfortunately, roof damage can occur without the homeowner realizing it. And only a trained professional can investigate and tackle them before they cause thousands of dollars in damage. Therefore, the experts at The Warwick Roofers want to encourage homeowners to have their roof inspected in Warwick before environmental factors such as heavy rain cause irreparable damage.
The Warwick Roofers are a team of roofing contractors who have been providing quality roofing services in Warwick and surrounding areas for over 20 years. They do many roof repairs throughout the area and replace and install roofs. As one of the leaders in roofing in Warwick, they want to urge homeowners, and even businesses, to have their roofs checked this spring to avoid costly repairs.
One of the main concerns for homeowners should be their gutters. Although they drain water from the house, if the gutters become clogged, they can start to collect around the foundation of the house. In addition, if water cannot pass through the gutters, it stagnates on the roof, creating moisture problems that lead to leaks. Whether the problems are at the top or the bottom of the house, it could result in huge costs for homeowners. Minor roof repairs could cost hundreds of dollars, while foundation repairs could cost thousands of dollars. The bottom line is that this single issue can create a domino effect of problems for homeowners. Having gutters cleaned or replaced can help protect the roof and other parts of the house from moisture problems.
Another issue that homeowners tend to overlook is roof problems caused by storms. Trees rubbing against shingles can cause them to snap and fall. Additionally, high winds can cause roof shingles to fall off as well. When the shingles are torn off, it leaves the roof deck vulnerable to moisture. Over time, this is what can cause leaks inside the house. Since homeowners only have one year from the time of the storm to make an insurance claim, it’s a good idea to have the damage investigated by a roof inspector. Obtaining photos and submitting them can help strengthen a claim and allow the insurance company to cover damages.
Homeowners should remember that bad gutters and storms aren’t the only problems brewing on their roofs. Sometimes poor flashing or roof decking can lead to very costly problems. For example, flashing protects the areas around the chimney or skylights. If the flashing does not help water drain from these areas, it could collect there and cause moisture damage. Additionally, missing, warped, or cracked shingles can let moisture in, causing damage to the plywood that makes up the roof deck. This could lead to rotting of the wood which causes leaks. It could even cause the roof to collapse under certain conditions. Only a professional roofer will notice such problems. That’s why it’s essential that homeowners get proper roof inspections to catch these problems before they escalate.
Finally, another problem that spring weather can aggravate is the growth of microorganisms on roofs. If homeowners have their roofs cleaned regularly, this won’t be much of a problem. Otherwise, microorganisms such as moss, algae, and lichen can destroy the shingles. If there is excessive growth causing major leaks, the homeowner will need to consider roof replacement which could cost thousands of dollars. Warwick Roofers encourage homeowners to schedule an inspection as soon as possible this spring to avoid these issues and keep costs to a minimum. Solving the problems before Mother Nature does more damage is the ideal solution.
