The Consequences of Delaying a Much-Needed Roof Replacement

Your roof doesn’t talk, but it always makes sure that you know when there’s a problem. Any issue – regardless of its extent – demands immediate attention, which is why it pays to be proactive when it comes to inspections and maintenance. A roof that is showing signs of severe damage requires a timely replacement job. The longer you delay it, however, the more destructive the consequences can be.

 Roof Replacement

Here are a few reasons you should never postpone a much-needed replacement project.

  • Major roof leaks –  Leaks usually occur when the protective barrier of roof materials begins to deteriorate. When shingle granules, for instance, wear off, water could easily find a way into your home. Commonly, leaks occur around the flashing near the chimney or behind the fascia. It’s important to address leaks right away because they can easily turn into bigger problems when left unattended.
  • Structural damage – If moisture has already seeped through your foundation, it’s only a matter of time before it causes the structural materials to wear or rot away. The deterioration of structural beams is extremely hazardous because it could lead to the collapse of your roof. Before the risk becomes even more significant, have a professional perform roof replacement immediately.
  • Lower property value – An old roof doesn’t only look bad; it falls short on performance as well. As a result, it can turn potential home buyers off if you are planning to sell your home in the future. And, even if you manage to sell it, the buyer might request a roof replacement anyway, so you might as well have it done before putting your home up for sale.
