A roof that has been letting water seep in for a period of time can damage ceiling panels, wallboard or paneling, and even the floor. Insulation will be ruined and mold will start setting in. This is why it’s important to have your roof inspected at least once a year.
How old is Your Roof?
The Curling Effect.
When having a new roof installed, it will need to be done right or else there will be premature failure. This is a big investment and you will want it to last for many years into the future. Water getting under the shingles will start rotting the decking underneath. The eaves and valleys are prone to leakage due to standing water. All pipes should be properly flashed.
The roof should have either turbines or a ridge vent installed so it will stay cooler. This will involve cutting areas out of your roof and should be done by a professional. Keeping your new roof free of obstructions, such as leaves and branches, will let water flow better and not remain pooled in the valleys. Taking car of your new roof will increase its life many years over one that is not maintained.
