Leaks, substandard workmanship and adverse weather-related conditions are three common causes for needed roof repairs. Sometimes the need for repair is obvious, while other times the conditions may be hidden.
Do you need a roof repair for any of these reasons? Here is an overview of each, and the damage that could be caused by leaving the condition unattended.
Leaks: According to experts, the overwhelming majority of all roof leaks are due to improper installation. Many homeowners are surprised to learn that many roof leaks are not obvious. They can get progressively worse over time, sometimes going unnoticed for several years, before the damage becomes visible and demands immediate attention.
Slow leaks that go undetected for long periods of time can cause the potentially dangerous growth of mold, mildew, structural damage and in the most severe cases, a collapse of the roof itself.
