Don’t Wait To Fix A Leak In Your Roof
It’s only a small leak right? You tell yourself “Meh, I can put up with that drip. It’s not that bad.” But keep in mind that a seemingly small roof leak can cause a whole lot of damage throughout your property. That damage will quickly add up when it comes to repair costs. It’s much better to have a leaky roof repaired
before it becomes a much larger and much more expensive fix.
Water damage spreads faster than you think!
Water can travel very quickly, and as far away as 8 to 10 feet from the point of entry. If you notice the tell-tale signs of a roof leak, such as a discolored spot on a wall or ceiling, call a reputable roof repair company right away. Wood framing of your home can quickly become saturated with water, which leads to mold and mildew growth. If it’s not removed it will infiltrate your HVAC system and cause health problems for your family, especially for those members with underlying respiratory conditions. The water will also cause the building materials to deteriorate, which weakens the structure of your home. In extreme cases, the entire roof could collapse. Water can also seep into the electrical work, which then poses a fire hazard.
Roof leaks can lead to higher heating & AC costs
Secondly, a leak in your roof means air is escaping. That in turn means your radiator and/or air conditioner is working harder, which means higher costs on your monthly utility bills. And speaking of money, waiting to have the leak fixed will only lead to more extensive and more expensive repairs, as the flooring of your attic, drywall, and framework may also be damaged.
