Home renovations include roofing projects

Your home renovations should include roofing projects. We are all busy, and often time the part of the house that gets the most neglect is the roof. Why? The roof can often times be neglected because it’s the last thing that we think about, but the most important part of our house next to the foundation. When you forget roofing projects you lose sight of the fact that the roof protects your home from the elements. Follow our tips on why home renovations should include roofing projects.

5 Home Renovations that include roofing projects

It is critical to keep up with small roof repairs. Often times repairs can be as simple as some new shingling or clearing a clogged rain gutter. Delaying repairs can result in much larger and more costly repairs down the road. Roof leaks can result in mold, rotting to wood and ceiling damage. Protect your home investment with Select Roofing Consultants in Atlanta.

  1. Wind Damage: Severe storms can often bring with them wind, with gusts of up to 50 to 75 miles per hour. This can wreak havoc on your roof. Heavy winds can cause loose or lost shingles. It can also loosen fasteners and breaks the adhesion making the roof susceptible to damage during the next storm. It’s important to look for this type of damage.
  2. Hail Damage: Hailstones can vary in size. Pea size (1/4 inch diameter) typically results in little roof damage. Marble size (3/4 inch in diameter) could possibly damage the roofing materials. Golf ball size (1 1/2 inch in diameter) and larger can result in severe damage to your roof. Other factors can play a role such as localized distribution, wind direction and roof pitch. New shingles will be more resistant to hail damage than older, brittle shingles. Include roof inspections in your home renovations.
  3. Water Damage: The serious nature of water damage requires that you bust out your best detective skills with your leaky roof investigation, as small roof leaks will quickly turn into big roof leaks. The detection of roof leaks is difficult, as water rarely drips straight down. It looks for the path of least resistance.  If there are holes or cracks anywhere on your roof, you likely have leakage. Pay special attention to the flashing for any signs of damage, missing or cracked shingles, and any signs of an aging roof. Inside your house, the most obvious sign of roof leaks is water stains on your ceiling, especially if they grow or darken after a rainstorm. Also look for sagging or soft ceilings, water spots in the attic, a musty smell, mold growth, or peeling paint.
  4. Dirty Gutters: Gutters that are overflowing with dirt and debris could be the beginning of a serious problem. Make sure that you take the time to clean the gutters seasonally. Every season brings different dirt and debris. When the gutters are neglected they can cause serious issues to your roof, including penetration of water into the attic.
  5. Filthy Shingles: Shingles, especially tile roofs, should be cleaned annually. Dirt and debris on the roof could cause the shingles and tiles to wear quicker than they should.
