What Happens When You Delay Roof Replacement

To maintain a safe and comfortable home, it is important to keep an eye on several aspects of your home and your roofing system is one of those areas. If you fail to replace your old, shabby roof in time, more problems will come about and wreak havoc on your living space. Below is a list of things that can happen when you delay roof replacement.

  • Water Damage. If your roof is nearing the end of its life and in need of replacement, it can lead to obvious water-related problems, like mold growth and wood rot. Areas in the roof that allow rainwater or melting snow to seep into your home are not only detrimental to the structural integrity of your roof but your home as well. If you see leaks or water stains in the attic, let a roofer check your system.
  • Health Risk. Damp environments encourage the growth of mold and mildew, while holes in the roof can allow rodents and other pests into your living space. All of these can pose a significant risk to the well-being of the residents, so make sure to replace your damaged roofing before you or your family members experience health complications.
  • Decreased Home Value. An old, failing roof will not only function poorly but also look bad. Roof replacement is definitely a renovation you should consider especially if you are planning to put your home up for sale in a few years’ time. Replacing your roof will also enhance the architectural appeal of your home and its curb appeal.
