Why Is The Roof So Important?

As mentioned above, there are quite a few things you should be checking out about a home before you decide to buy it, especially the roof. But, why is the roof so important when it comes to your home? Without a roof to your structure, there is no protection. A poorly maintained/damaged roof can be at risk for various damages. Water damage being one of the main issues that can occur, including:

  1. Water damage can begin to occur throughout the home, including ceilings, walls, rafters and more.

  2. Mold formation which can cause a wide range of health problems.

  3. Water can rot the roof beams, leading to very costly replacement.

None of the above issues are a quick and easy fix, often requiring a lot of money to deal with. Dealing with unexpected costs once you’ve purchased your home is the last thing you want to do. We recommend thoroughly checking the roof over or hiring a roofing expert near you to provide a professional inspection.
