The roof is important because it offers protection against the extremes of weather such as rain, too much sun, or snow. It is not uncommon for individuals to overlook the mantainance of a good roof or roofing material until signs of damage start being apparent. According to Pro Atlanta Roofing, here is a list of five things that can cause or accelerate damage to your roof.
Hail, Ice, and Snow
Rain and moisture are the number one enemy of most roofs and roofing materials. The latter is more damaging, especially if the roof is made of metal. The protective layer found in roofing material made up of asphalt shingles is also destroyed by intense rain. This creates a decolorized patterns on the roof, giving it an unappealing appearance.
During the winter, roofs are the part of the house that take the most hit thereby increases their maintenance cost. During winter, snow and ice coat the roof surface and may need to be thawed by an internal heater. The continuous cycle of freezing and thawing may cause the shingles roofing material to deform.
The ice dams formed (due to frequent freezing and thawing) can additionally block the drainage system and the gutters of the plumbing system. The ice dams can also leak into the ceiling, causing further visible damage. If you notice any visible roof damage, contact Pro Atlanta Roofing, a roofing company that offers roof replacement services at affordable costs.
Moss and Lichen
The growth of lichen and moss is favored by moisture. A roof damaged by rain is likely to undergo further damage by growing lichen and moss. The woody parts of the roof are the most affected. If you notice any lichen or moss growth, call Pro Atlanta Roofing.
The sun is known to cause the gradual fading of colored roofs over time. The fading of colored roofs is due to the harmful UV rays that dry the roof, especially if it is made up of shingles. If you suspect a sun-damaged roof, we recommend contacting Pro Atlanta Roofing, specialized in sun damaged roofs.
Sometimes an overgrown, diseased tree may fall on a roof, causing damages that warrants roof replacement. In other cases, leaves and dried-up twigs fall and accumulate on the roofing surface clogging gutters and enhancing mold growth reducing the lifespan of your roof.
Roofing contractors recommend frequent cleaning of the roof to get rid of accumulated dirt and dust. This ensures long-lasting roofs. In addition, it is recommended that you perform regular inspections and trimmings of trees and bushes that surround the home.
Strong winds may uproot roofs. Winds generally pull off a roof starting from the edges where the support to the main structure is minimal. If you reside in a windy area, damage to your roof will be indicated by leaks or unevenness in the roofing.
