Any roofing issue must be given immediate attention, which is why being proactive when it comes to repairs and maintenance is imperative. If the damage to your roof is significant enough, it’s possible that simple repairs may no longer cut it, and the only solution would be a prompt replacement. Tackling this project in a timely manner is imperative; otherwise, you may face devastating consequences that may impact your home and family.
Here’s what can happen when you delay a roof replacement project.
An older roof that is in need of replacement is at higher risk of suffering water damage. There may already be areas in your roof that are weak and will allow water to enter your home. Once water seeps through these gaps or cracks, your home’s structural integrity gets compromised.
If you’ve only repaired your roof over a much-needed replacement, water may still enter your damaged roof. Before you know it, you already have a damp environment where mold and mildew can thrive. The spores they release into the air can be detrimental to the health of your household, triggering allergies and other respiratory issues. By the time you decide to have your roof replaced, you may also find yourself inquiring about mold remediation, which is an added expense.
The longer you delay roof replacement, the more intensive your roof’s failure will be. You may notice granules on the ground near the downspouts. Water may start entering your home. Worse, the structural beams in your home will begin to wear and rot, increasing the likelihood of the roof caving in. This is not a point that you would want to reach, so before it happens, make sure to schedule your roof replacement appointment with your choice of roofing company.
