Your roof is supposed to last a few decades, much longer if it’s regularly and properly maintained. However, there can be several factors that can shorten and compromise your roofing’s lifespan. To avoid this, you need to understand why roofs fail.
The design of your roof is unique to your home’s structure. Each design requires focus and attention to detail. A trusted contractor follows a guideline to design your roofing so that it suits your home’s structure and construction. If your roof is designed poorly, it can easily be compromised.
Faulty Roofing Materials
Avoid roof failure by ensuring that your roof is sturdy and efficient. Your roof will be under the sun and will be enduring strong weather events throughout its years. With this in mind, you should invest in high-quality roofing materials. Prepare your roof against the strong winds and storms with a sturdy and capable roofing system.
The quality of your roofer’s workmanship matters as it directly affects your roof’s integrity. Your roof installation should only be done by a trusted and reliable roofing contractor. Poor workmanship can lead to serious and irreparable roof damage. Repairs can be costly and a waste of time. This is why it’s important to hire a professional roofer that is skilled and knowledgeable.
High levels of moisture, leakage and water damage are some of the most common roofing issues that you should avoid. Recurring roof damage can cause roof failure. You should practice regular roofing inspections by professionals to keep your roof in tip-top shape.
Excessive Roof Traffic
Your roofing can only manage limited weight. Avoid walking on the surface of your roof and storing anything heavy on it. Keep your roof clean, traffic-free and clear of any heavy objects. The weight can compromise your roof and cause serious damage.
