When thinking about roof repair, most of us only reflect on its main function to patch it up. Proper repairs have many other benefits than a simple Band-Aid.
- It helps to extend the life of your roof – One of the worst things homeowners have to deal with is an unplanned roof replacement. Proper repairs can extend your roof’s life. When you know your roof is at the end of its life span and you need time to finance your roof replacement, repairs help you buy time. We’ve had many clients who were anticipating an unexpected roof replacement only to be surprised when they were told all they needed was a thorough roof repair.
- Make sure you keep your warranty up-to-date – Most roofing systems require regular maintenance and repairs; not doing so could void the warranty. It makes perfect sense if you consider that roofs are constantly exposed to the elements, so being lax with repairs and maintenance could be considered as neglect. Many roofing contractors can help you schedule regular roof repair and maintenance appointments at your convenience.
- It helps improve the function of your roof – Another positive result of prompt roof repairs is it helps improve your roof’s performance. Remember, the smallest leak can quickly snowball into a bigger one and compromise your roof’s overall performance.
- It keeps your home energy-efficient – A well maintained roofing system keeps your home well insulated. It reduces heat loss during cold days and heat gain during hot days. Such an environment reduces indoor heating and cooling requirements, resulting in lower energy bills. Leaks in the roof are a freeway for heat loss unless necessary repairs are done in a timely manner
- Repair and Maintenance Improves Aesthetics – Your roof is one of the first things people see, so it only makes sense that a regularly maintained roof will have better frontage and exterior aesthetics.
- Healthy Living – Roofs left in disrepair often result in leaks. Long-term leaks can lead to interior mold and mildew growth, which can pose a serious health risk. With regular maintenance you can spot problem areas, address them promptly and avoid potential health hazards.
