Have you inspected your roof lately? Be wary of damages that require immediate roof repairs! Don’t ignore broken shingles that could let water in or indoor air out, clogged gutters that could eventually become the root of moisture retention and leaks, and water damaged soffit and fascia that could teem with molds and pests.
You might wonder what causes these problems and how you can prevent them. Improper gutter cleaning, poor roof maintenance, and unprofessional installation or repair jobs are among the top reasons, and you can avoid these by being more diligent with roof maintenance and wise about picking out a contractor. On the other hand, some factors that can bring about these problems are difficult to prevent or prepare for—the outdoor elements and forces of nature.
