The Importance Of Repairing A Roof Leak:
It is no secret that roof leaks are a nuisance and cost money to repair. Left unrepaired, however, they can become catastrophic and cost thousands of dollars to ultimately fix. It is of the utmost importance to stay on top of roof leaks and to make sure a small problem does not escalate.
One of the most important reasons to repair a roof leak is the cost. Sure, an unexpected leak can be difficult to deal with, and that money has to come from somewhere but it is worth it to pay the cost up front. Small, inexpensive leak repairs can become much larger, expensive problems very quickly.
Small leaks in your roof can lead to mold and mildew damage, ceiling damage, higher energy bills as attic insulation becomes damaged, and can even cause a fire hazard should shorted wires become exposed to water. The biggest risk, however, is roof failure. Water damage can weaken support beams, joints, and walls. When these becomes weakened, they can no longer support the weight of the roof and the entire system can collapse.
As you can see, it is best to repair a small roof leak right out of the gate. If you do not know where to start, are unsure if you have a leak, or would like to schedule a repair, contact Outdoor Creations Roofing at (918) 558-ROOF (7663).
