Roofing Services In SWLA
Roofing is something that is not at the forefront of most people’s minds. Considering the average roof has an estimated 20-year life span, it’s understandable that we may get complacent about roofing over the years, possibly even forget or, maybe it’s just good old-fashioned procrastination. Whatever it may be, without regular inspection and maintenance, small problems with simple solutions can escalate quickly. For example, missing shingles or leaks can quickly turn from a minor repair issue to a major (and costly) disaster. Inspection and maintenance are the keys to avoiding long-term damage. Damage that could lead to a requirement for total roof replacement or internal damage to your home.
Damages gone unrepaired and unseen not only worsen and weaken the structural integrity of your home, but they may also lead to a variety of problems, including mold and mildew growth in the home due to moisture entering and collecting from the damaged roof. Some areas commonly affected by mold and mildew are air ducts, attics, and wall cavities, making it hard to detect them. Out of sight, out of mind? Not quite. Extensive mold contamination can cause severe health problems. If toxic mold spores get into the air, they can enter the lungs, cause allergic and respiratory problems, or even permanent damage to the brain in extreme cases.
Aside from the major health implications, if left untreated mold and mildew could also cause depreciation of the value of your home, or your home may be legally condemned, along with having your property seized in extreme cases. The federal government, along with all U.S. states, reserve the right to condemn a home or seize property if it’s deemed hazardous according to the United States code 983.
Properly maintaining your roof or hiring someone to do it not only saves you money on roof replacement, mold removal, demolition, and major repair cost but you also save on health, you save on security, you save on prosperity and, you save all around. The cost to repair any damages to the roof will be much smaller if they’re detected in the early stages or simply maintained and prevented altogether.
Below is more important information that every homeowner should know about their roof:
Soffit and Fascia
What is Soffit? Soffit is the exposed siding underneath the overhang of your roof.
What is Fascia? Fascia is the area of siding or exposed board you see just above the overhang of your roof.
Why are they important? The Soffits importance is that it allows for venting and keeps a healthy airflow between your roof and attic, the attic needs to be well ventilated or moisture can collect causing mold and mildew. The Soffit also allows heat to be released from the attic for homes in hotter climates, and during hot summer months for homes in cooler climates.
Fascia – the exposed siding above the overhang – is important not only because it supports the lower edge of the bottom row of tiles or shingles on your roof, but it’s also where your gutters are installed. Most people know the importance of gutters, so you definitely want a good sturdy Fascia to hold up and hold strong for your gutters during heavy rain or storm.
