What are the Most Common Causes of Roof Damage?

What are the Most Common Causes of Roof Damage?

22 May

One of the most important components of your home’s structure is the roof. Your roof provides you shelter, protects against the elements, helps insulate the home, and is a large chunk of your home’s exterior aesthetic. Just like all other aspects of your home, the roof can sustain damage over time. It’s incredibly important you stay up to date on your roof’s maintenance and any needed repairs. Issues that aren’t taken care of in a timely manner can get worse and become emergency situations and cost a lot more than if they had been addressed earlier. Your roof can often be forgotten as large parts of it are not typically visible to you, but getting up there for visual inspections as well as keeping an eye out for other signs of roofing issues can save you time, money, and hassle in the long run.  Doppler Construction professionals are here to help with any emergency roofing needs, as well as routine maintenance, repairs or replacements. 

Common Causes of Roof Damage

To keep your roof in good condition and prevent any major issues you will want to be aware of some of the most common causes of roof damage.

  • Your roofing is old– while roofs can last a long time, nothing lasts forever. The common traditional asphalt roof, for example, typically lasts for around 20-25 years. Knowing how old your roof is will be very helpful for staying on top of its condition. If it’s getting near the end of its life you may want to start considering a replacement.
  • Not staying on top of maintenance– as with any part of your home, staying on top of routine maintenance is extremely important. If you slack on taking care of your roof it’s almost guaranteed to give out on you sooner than it would have with proper care. If you take the time to stay up to date on any needed roof maintenance, you’ll get more life out of it and save money in the long run.
  • Severe weather– it’s probably no surprise that severe weather can cause roof damage. Thunderstorms, snow, extreme heat, and other types of weather can wear away at your roof as well as cause more severe damage like ripping off shingles. 
  • Poor installation– a lot of the issues that can come up with roofs result from improper installation. This is why it’s so important to go with an established, experienced contractor that you trust.
