Tipp City roofer
If you own a home you know the most important thing aside from paying the mortgage is keeping everything working and looking good. With the internet and some elbow grease, you can turn almost anything into a DIY project. Sure, you can tackle that old kitchen or bath, but there are some things that are better left to the pros. Being a Tipp City roofer we know that a misdiagnosed roofing problem can really compromise the safety of your home. At the end of the day it is better to be safe than sorry; especially when it comes to your home. Here are a few things to keep in mind when it comes to your roof.
First, while your roof is built to take a beating it does have some breaking points. Strong winds and hail damage are the enemy to your roof. If your roof is brand new you still have to be mindful of these things. Unfortunately, most homes already have some age to them and are more susceptible to roofing damage. Most homes have asphalt roofs and can expect to get about 15-30 years out of them; more with a metal roof. You are probably thinking that sounds great, BUT that comes with regular maintenance and a little bit of luck from mother nature.
Next, there are many ways your roof can be damaged and you not even know it. Most people think about roof damage as a gaping hole in your ceiling. While this can happen, most damage is not that obvious. If you have one missing shingle you have roof damage. This is because that missing shingle will allow water to get below the roofing layers and start to cause real damage inside and out. We have all seen what water and flooding can do to a home. You should try to make sure your home is safe from even the smallest drops.
Last is hail damage. This is what separates the novice from the pros. Hail damage is one of the most misdiagnosed issues. This is because it does not look like much. People look at it and just see dirt or a scuff. Meanwhile, this damage is making your roof unsafe. If you have hail larger than a quarter falling from thousands of feet on to your roof there will always be damage . When it hits your roof it bounces and just leaves behind indentation.
