When it comes to roofing, we frequently believe that if our roofs are not leaking, we don’t need to bother with them. This out of sight out of mind attitude can fast lead to expensive repair costs further down the road. Regular maintenance is crucial in helping you to save money. Without regular maintenance, you would have to part with huge sums of money on roofing repairs and replacements. Maintenance is also great because it helps you to identify roofing problems early before the situation gets worse, and furthermore costly.
One of the largest investments people make is their home. Performing ongoing maintenance on your roof will help prolong its life, and by extension the life of your whole property. Roofs are a fundamental element to your home.
A roof is also a selling point on a home and increases its value. From beautiful materials such as tile and metal, to an energy-efficient roof, many homebuyers take those extras into account.
A major leak in your roof will be evident quickly as it will soak through your ceiling and potentially damage internal walls and flooring. But if you’re not performing routine maintenance on your roof, there could be quieter, more insidious damage occurring without your knowledge. A small leak, one that doesn’t enter your living space, could be happening in your loft at this moment.
Dripping water every time it rains, even a small amount, can cause rot damage to beams in your loft. The repair can be quite costly (not to mention unhealthy, if it promotes the growth of mould), if it’s not found and fixed quickly. Preventative maintenance would expose such hazards and remedy them before they became major problems.
Your roof braves the elements. A properly ventilated and insulated roof will also save you money on heating and cooling. The roof releases humidity and heat from your home. Heat and humidity coming from your home can be as damaging as rain from the outside. If the roof vents are not working properly, that heat and humidity become trapped, and they will eat away at the wood rafters in the attic and underpinnings of your roof.
Ensuring you have good insulation is key to cooler summer temperatures and warmer winter ones inside your home. You pay a lot to heat and cool your home. Don’t let your money escape out of a poorly insulated roof.
A roof is one of the least thought of components of a home but one of the most important. It protects your investment, adds value to your property, and saves money on heating and cooling costs. If you’re not maintaining it, you’re doing yourself—and your wallet—a disservice.
