The Risks of Putting Off a Roof Replacement

The Risks of Putting Off a Roof Replacement

Did you know that about 10% of Americans have allergies to mold? These fungi like to grow in places abundant in moisture, and leaky roofs are the best place for them to grow.

With a good roofing contractor, you need not worry about leaks or mold growth in the attic.

Now, talking about roof replacement costs feel heavy on the pocket. Putting off the plan to replace the roof will save you money. However, how sure are you that your tile roof has no leaks?

There are a lot of risks that you may encounter by putting off a roof replacement. Do you want to know more about these possible risks? Read what we have below and find out if you need a roof replacement.

Electrical Damage

Do you have electric wiring present in the attic or your metal roof? If that’s a yes, you risk your home from a fire threat.

Leaky roofs create moisture in the walls and ceiling of the attic. When it makes contact with the wiring, it can create fires or an electrocuted area. Get a roofer to patch the areas of leaky ceilings and prevent moisture build-up in the walls.

Insulation Damage

Water build-up in the walls or ceiling is terrible for home insulation. It traps hot air in the attic, creating horrible ventilation. Awful ventilation would make your home insulation lose its efficiency.

Gaps made from the weakened walls affect the HVAC system making air harder to circulate. You lose your home's natural cooling or heating, and now you have the best place for molds to grow.

Skyrocketing Bills

Putting off roof replacement means more bills and high utility costs later. It affects areas in the house, creating complications and damages you won’t know until later.

You will lose more money than you expect from the calculated repair cost. Not only do you spend money on repairs, but you also have to spend on the replacement of damaged items.

Leaky Ceilings

Roofing made of Cedar roofs has a great aesthetic, but it absorbs water, making it a poor roofing material. It makes you spend more money on roof repairs as it happens every rainy season.

You will know that you have leaky ceilings when you see molds or mildew on them. Trapped water can affect electronics or create a water leakage.

The molds can affect the health of everyone in the house by causing allergies. In worst-case situations, it can make you ill.

Collapsing Roof

Small leaks seem like a problem you can ignore because placing a bucket on the spot does the job. However, small leaks can become bigger and weaken the structural integrity of walls and ceilings.

The collected water makes dips on the roof and molds that eat away the material. It creates a risk that can cause physical damage and make the house collapse over your head. Don’t ignore the danger signals and contact the roof replacement near you.
