No homeowner wants to have to deal with residential roof problems, but they can and will arise from time to time. Roofs, just like any other area of your home, have a series of common problems and the odds are you will experience one of them.
According to buildings.com here are 3 of the most common roof problems:
1. Roof leaks
No surprise here. Roof leaks and moisture build up is the arch enemy of your homes roof. They are also one of the most common problems that homeowners experience with your roof. “With any roof – no matter what type – if you’ve got roof leaks, then you’ve got a problem,” explains Charles Praeger, executive director, Metal Building Manufacturers Association (MBMA) to Buildings.com.
2. Lack of maintenance
When was the last time you checked your roof or hired a roofing company to perform maintenance on your roof? If you are like most homeowners, its likely been a while. “The problem in roofing is a lack of education on all levels. But if the owner of the property is better educated, the whole industry does better and less problems [occur],” explains Chris Mooney, GAFMC/CARE national training manager.
3. Poor installation
The company you choose to install your roof matters – a reason why you need to choose the right residential roofing company for the job. “A faulty installation dramatically increases the likelihood of problems and reduces a roof system’s life expectancy,” says Jana Madsen from Buildings.com. Take your time when choosing a roofing company or it could end up costing your more money on repairs and reduce your roofs life expectancy.
