Avoiding hefty roof repair costs


 
Advice,Business,Consumer
Most people do not check the roofs of their houses regularly yet are surprised to be faced with sudden roof damage and repair costs. Since this is the part that covers your house and protects it from the sun, wind, rain and snow, it is important to maintain it. While this is one of the hard-to-access parts of the home, lack of maintenance will result in serious damages. Keeping it in the best condition will save you from unnecessary expenditures otherwise spent on more important matters.

Maintaining a roof is done regardless of its material, while the material depends on the weather, climate or location of your residence. If you live in an area with occasional hurricanes, tornadoes or heavy snow, you will most likely encounter roof damage and repair needs. But whether you live in a snowy, rainy or hot and humid place, it is essential to check the condition of your roofs.

Material

Roofs are constructed from a variety of materials which range from leaves, straw and grass to more durable materials like glass, aluminum, tiles and concrete. Those made of asphalt are fairly durable and will last for more than a decade. Those made of clay, slate or tile can last much longer than asphalt ones if they are maintained well.

How do you prevent roof damage and repair costs from eating your savings away? Carrying out regular maintenance checks is not as difficult as you expect. Here are the things you need to look out for when performing a check.

Branch Length

If you have trees that grow near your roof, keep the branches away from it. Tree branches can cause damage by breaking or puncturing through its material. In addition, they can also block your roof's gutter, resulting to collection of water which further causes leaks that seep into your home's interior. Moreover, if trees extend all over its surface, this can lead to poor air circulation and high humidity. Regular trimming of tree branches can help prevent roof damage and repair costs.

Discoloration

If you happen to see any discoloration or dark green or black streaks, these can be a sign of growing fungus, mold or algae. These are formed when your roof is exposed to extreme humidity or poor air circulation brought by tree shades and other obstructions. If left untreated, these formations can cause serious damage. They can make the material weaker and more prone to damage, and even cause leaks. Zinc strips can be placed along its ridges, which will combine with rainwater and form a coating that prevents formation of these substances.

Weakness or Damage

Time takes its toll on everything, and building materials will eventually grow old and weak resulting to roof damage and repair needs. If your area of residence is exposed to heavy rains, snows or winds, it is possible that it has been weakened by the elements. Frequent exposure to extreme weather conditions can cause weakness of materials. Regular check-up of your roof's condition can help prevent further damages.
