Your roof takes the brunt of the punishment from the weather. Aside from moisture, hail and snow, it has to deal with debris, wind and temperature changes. This is on top of enduring harsh sunlight.
A storm can cause unseen damage to your roof. Here are some reasons you should call a roofing company, such as Spicer Bros. Construction, Inc., to deal with storm damage as soon as possible:
Damage May Be Invisible to the Untrained Eye
Unless you’re a roofer yourself, you may not know what to look for; you may not know where to look either. Scheduling a professional inspection after a bout of harsh weather is the best way to make sure everything is still in good shape. You should also schedule routine inspections every six months.
Moisture Attracts Mold
Even if you don’t spot any leaks, you still need to be aware of any sort of moisture on your roofing system. When moisture builds up, mold can grow. If you let it stand too long and the subsequent weather is hot and humid, you may find that you have a major roof-cleaning job on your hands.
Wind and Storms Cause Leaks and Clogging
In the winter, frozen precipitation can accumulate in your gutters and downspouts, creating a clog that can lead to serious water damage. In addition, strong winds can bring leaves, dirt, rocks and other debris onto your roof, causing further damage.
A good roofing contractor will perform a thorough inspection and start the repairs as soon as possible. Don’t hire any roofer, though; choose experienced professionals. At Spicer Bros. Construction, Inc., we’ll be happy to schedule your inspection and any repairs. Call us at (410) 546-1190 today for your free, in-home, no-obligation estimate.
