If you suspect you have a damaged roof and have noticed water stains on your ceiling and walls, you should get your roof inspected and repaired immediately!
Citadel Roofing & Building Maintenance in Vancouver shares 5 reasons why you should not wait for roof repair or replacement:
1. The weather won’t wait for you.
It might seem like beautiful sunny weather today, but a bad storm can be on it’s way. Take advantage of the clear weather if you have it and make the repairs now. Roofing repairs done in good weather tend to last longer than those last-minute efforts in the middle of a rain or even snow storm.
2. Ignored damage could result in needing a roof replacement.
A few missing shingles here and there is not a big fix for roofing contractors and won’t cost much for repairs. If you have gaps in your roof you are leaving your home exposed to UV and potential water damage. These small breaches in your roof’s defenses could actually lead to larger leaks, mould growth and very expensive repairs. The more your roof is damaged, the less likely it can just be repaired and you will need a full roof replacement along with other costly fixes to any damage it’s caused to your home.
3. Your home will be a healthier place to live.
A damaged roof can lead to water getting in and mould, algea and insects all love damp, rotting wood! If you wait for roof repair, you could be opening up your home to bacterial growth and infestation. Beyond the icky factor, mould can actually pose a major health threat to you and your family. Exposure to mould can irritate airways, worsen allergies and even cause itchy eyes and throat, runny or stuffed nose, sneezing and coughing.
4. You will save on energy bills.
If you’re worried about the cost of roof repairs, consider how much money you are losing because of that damaged roof! Gaps and holes in your roof will allow air to escape your home. That means your heating and cooling systems will have to work harder to keep your home comfortable, driving up your utility bills and increasing strain on your mechanical systems.
5. You will maintain the value of your home.
Missing and damaged shingles will decrease your home’s curb appeal and even it’s overall value. This is important to consider, especially if you are planning on selling your home. The condition of the roof is one of the first things buyers will look at if they’re viewing your home. Not only will a damaged roof mean they’ll have to fix it if they purchase the home, it also might give them the impression that the rest of the home hasn’t been well-cared for.
