Common Reasons Why Roofs Fail

The bottom line is that every roof that a house has will eventually fail and need to be replaced. However, many roofs fail far earlier than others and there are reasons for that. If you’re wondering why your roof hasn’t lasted as long as your neighbors and they were installed at a similar time explore below:

1. Faulty Installation 

If you’re paying an inexperienced company to save a couple bucks, we hope you understand the serious risk that you are taking. There are bound to be mistakes made during the installations process causing your roof to falter after some period of time.

2. Neglect

Proper maintenance on all facets of your home will ensure that they last for as long as possible. If you don’t take care of your roof it will fail. That means making timely repairs when needed, cleaning your gutters and removing debris and branches that accumulate on your roof.

3. Lacking Ventilation

Adequate ventilation in your roof allows your roof and attic area to stay at a reasonable temperature. With improper ventilation, the temperature can warp and damage your roof over time. A trusted and skilled contractor will ensure that ventilation is set up properly during a roof install.

4. New England Weather

Living in New England, we all know that the weather can be harsh at times. This is one situation that you can do the least about. To reduce the chances of a snowstorm or thunderstorm from damaging your house, make sure you don’t have any branches hanging over your house. A tree limb can cause some serious damage to your roof.

Regular roof inspections, not holding off on roof repairs and making sure a skilled and trusted roofing company similar to Mario’s Roofing is working on your house will all ensure that your roof lasts as long as it can. This will save you money in the long run and will reduce the amount of stress in your life.
