Make Sure Your Roof Isn’t the Scariest Part of Halloween


Unless you’ve spent a lot of time putting up spooky rooftop decorations for Halloween, your roof shouldn’t play a role in the scariness of the holiday.  A roof in poor condition can cause some extremely chilling problems, especially as winter approaches.

PROBLEM #1: MOLD

If you find mold on your roof that can be frightening no matter the time of year it appears.  A leaky roof can quickly lead to mold emerging in your attic.  Remember, even if your roof isn’t leaking, inadequate ventilation can still be the base for dangerous mold growth.   Proper roof ventilation is critical to keeping moisture build-up from dampening attic insulation and damaging the structural components of your home.   Scheduling regular roof inspections is a great way to identify problems like mold before it becomes a crisis.

PROBLEM #2: WATER DAMAGE

If it’s not mold, roof leaks can lead to other types of problems, including water damage that may not be noticeable.  With all the wind and rain that comes down in Monterey County throughout the year, and as the weather turns cooler, this can add punishment to your roof.  So, leaks may be difficult to detect.  If you leave them undetected, the leaks will quickly escalate into very costly problems.  A qualified roofing contract like Williams Roofing can help identify those leaks quickly.

PROBLEM 3:  FEEL LIKE GHOSTS ARE IN YOUR HOME?

Unexplained temperature changes and breezes aren’t always caused by ghosts.  These unsolved temperature changes can be caused by inadequate sealing around windows and doors.  But they can also be caused by inadequate attic insulation.  Checking your roof and home for signs of air leaks is an easy way to keep costs low and prevent your heating and cooling systems from working inefficiently. 

PROBLEM 4:   DOES YOUR ROOF REMIND YOU OF A HORROR SHOW?

Missing, curling or warping shingles have the potential of making your home look like a Halloween haunted house.  These can all be signs of a much bigger roofing problem.  If the thought of these costly roof repairs makes your blood run cold, call Williams Roofing.  We can spot and tackle these problems head on to make sure your roof and home are prepared for the fall and winter.
