Unexpected Damage To Your Roof? Here’s How To Deal With It

Your roof keeps you well protected from the elements, which is why you need to regularly check that it is in good working condition. This helps to monitor areas that are susceptible to damage and address them as soon as possible. Areas to always keep an eye on include gutters, chimneys, the roofing material and the ventilation vents. Age usually takes a toll on the roofing of your home as well as the different elements your roof is exposed to. For instance, if you bought a home and are currently using it in the condition that you bought it, you may not be sure of how old the roofing is. Your roof may get damaged and you may not have budgeted for a roofing contractor at that precise moment. Before you can organize yourself though, there are some things you can do to safeguard the wellbeing of your home. The following article describes how to go about it: There are a number of temporary repairs you can do until a permanent solution is decided upon. Control water seeping in. If you find any leaks, take action to control the amount of rainwater pouring into the roof or home that may damage other internal components of the roof. Remove any pools or puddles of water. Sometimes the damage to the roof can cause pockets in the roof to become present that will accumulate water. Empty these areas and keep water out of them until a repair is made. Find the source of a leak. Although you may find water pouring in from one location, the source of it may be in a completely different location. The sooner you can find the source, the better off you’re going to be in preventing further water damage. Clean away any debris. The cleaner your roof and surrounding areas are, the easier it will be to find other leaks and sources of water, and it will make it easier for a repair crew to get to work.

Events such as a hurricane, tornado, heavy rainfall, a tree falling or electric poles falling may leave your roof severely damaged. Weather-related disasters are even more difficult to handle since there are safety considerations to make. For your safety and also to ensure that your roof doesn’t experience more or extensive damage, there are a few things you can do. The following article describes how you can help alleviate the problem: Emergency Roof Repairs: 6 Steps To Stopping Further Damage Any roof, old or new, is susceptible to damage due to extreme weather conditions. When your home is bombarded by heavy rains, storm, strong winds or hail, prompt emergency repairs are often necessary. Immediate intervention is critical since a damaged roof can directly affect the stability of the entire structure of the house. But what if a contractor is not available right away? What […]

Roof Leaks And Black Mold – Eliminate These Threats From Your Home

As summer comes to a close, it is a great time to do your regular house maintenance and checkup procedures. This is especially so for those activities that are sensitive and require adequate time and resources. One such activity that is usually neglected is checking for leaks and mold. It is common to assume that roof leaks only come after winter. Winter and spring are times when leaks are likely to occur, but there are so many other causes of leaks. The trouble is also that it could be difficult to identify the source of the leak. First of all, it is necessary to identify the causes of leaks, and the following article helps give a comprehensive understanding of the possible causes of leaks: So let’s look at ten of the most common culprits in causing your roof to leak and what you can – and should – do about them (other than recruit a bucket brigade): Villain: Age Roofing materials, especially asphalt shingles, get old and tired. Expansion and contraction with the change in temperatures cause aging roof protection to turn brittle and eventually crack. Years of harsh rays from direct sunlight can melt the tar that holds composition shingles together. Father Time has not lost a battle yet and when roofing materials run up against their life expectancy, it will be time to budget for a new roof at the first sign of a leak. Read more at Roofing Calc… Seeing that it is not just winter that can bring about roof leaks, it is best to be proactive about checking the areas mentioned in the article for possible leaks. A leak can easily lead to other complications in your home and can cause more damage than you could possibly imagine. Just like the old saying goes – a small leak can sink a great ship. Another big problem that comes from roof leaks or any kind of dampness in your home, is black mold. This is something you really want to avoid especially if your family members have allergies or other health problems. The following article explains what black mold is and the damage that can come from it: Black Mold Can Cause Big Problems Black mold in your basement is a big deal. Nobody wants mold in their home, but black mold is a particularly dangerous variety. Black mold can cause serious health problems. Since mold thrives in moist, dark areas, your dank and dimly-lit basement is a perfect breeding ground. This is especially true if you experience persistent basement wetness, flooding, or other moisture areas. Since humidity is a big factor in mold growth, Maryland basements are particularly susceptible to the stuff. Even run of the mill mold can be harmful, but black mold takes these harmful effects to an unhealthy extreme. Black mold is a microscopic organism. Its spores are invisible to the naked human eye, but once it grows and spreads to a large enough area you will be able to see it. […]
