Maintaining your property is a hard work, and keeping tabs on the condition of the structure can be daunting at times. However, if upkeep and inspection are not done on a regular basis, you could be in for some serious, costly damage. Roof integrity is one of the most important structural issues to pay attention to. A damaged or deteriorating roof can allow water to seep into your structure and ultimately cause significant damage. Over time, roofs become weakened due to exposure to the elements. A typical roof will last between 25-30 years, but should be inspected regularly.
When a roof leaks, the water can damage many parts of the structure from top to bottom, so it is vitally important to deal with the leak immediately. There are a lot of results of a roof leaks. Items stored in the attic and the attic walls and ceiling are all at risk of being damaged or destroyed by water leaking in through the roof. Water can cause paint and plaster to bubble and become discolored and can ruin ceiling lights and fans. If electrical lines are present in the attic, then standing or dripping water can short out wires and cause a fire. Turn off the electricity before inspecting the area. Water that leaks through the roof can also cause mold and mildew growth that can corrupt the wooden structure and infiltrate the HVAC system, which would spread the mold throughout the building into carpets, walls, and furniture.
Mold can cause serious illness for those who are breathing the air or coming in contact with mold-infested items.
