Our roofs protect us from the various elements that can damage our equipment and compromise our health, but we tend to forget that they take the punishment that we don’t. Preventive maintenance is essential to keep our roofs from failing but not knowing how to inspect them for damage might not make way for maintenance.
Eaves, overhangs, and other parts of the roof can hide rainwater, which results in damages on the roofing. Molds can present themselves too.
Not all roofs take damage the same way since there are different types of roofing that people use. Asphalt roofing becomes brittle due to intense heat, and its granules can block the gutters. Metal roofs are prone to rust and corrosion that result in holes and water leaks. Wooden roofs receive damage from the weather and end up getting rotten, warped, and broken. Roofs protect our heads, but they also need to be checked on to ensure that the protection doesn’t go away. All County Exteriors has an infographic for more information.
