WHY IS ROOF DAMAGE SO SERIOUS?
Roof damage, while being and eyesore and allowing everything from wildlife to the elements to get into your home, can also cause a number of other problems relate to exposure to water, heat and sunlight. The obvious problems are easy to see. You don’t want animals in your attic or rain coming in through an open hole and soaking everything below it, including your carpets, drywall and furniture. But even if you don’t see the water in your living area, it can still be soaking surfaces behind the wall and rotting boards and drywall.
Roof damage can often go unnoticed if your roof-line doesn’t provide line of site to the entire roof from the ground. Anything from wind to falling debris can cause damage to your roof. If there is damage to your roof and water or other outside elements are getting in to the interior of your home, you may have more difficult issues to deal with down the road. Issue like structural damage and mold. If the condition has gone on for a long time before it’s noticed, you may already have bigger problems than you think.
It is important to have you roof inspected on a regular basis and after major weather events. You can have this done by a professional service that will either climb on the roof physically and inspect it or work with a UAV (also know as a drone) to carry out the inspection. Make sure any company you work with is licensed.
If you do find yourself in a situation where roof damage on a property you own has gone unnoticed for too long or has allowed for a fair amount of interior damage, the costs associated with fixing issues of mold and structural damage inside the walls can be very high. You best bet might be to sell the property and extract it’s value in cash as fast as possible. That’s where Obi Buys comes in.
