Leaky Roof Risks McHenry
When it comes to knowing if your home is at risk you need to look for these signs. Animal activity around your home and on your roof, the age of your roof, and trees or other high areas around your roof. Animals post a significant risk to your roof because they have sharp claws and often are very good at digging. Unless your roof is stone or metal, odds are an animal can get through it. Older roofs are at higher risk and knowing what the life expectancy of your roof will help. Normal asphalt roofing tiles last about 20 to 25 years, and you’ll see lots of debris in your gutters, loose tiles, and discoloration on your roof. This means that it is losing its protective properties and puts the wood under the tiles at risk. The last part is for falling debris. Falling branches can poke a hole in your roof in a second. Falling stones or other objects can also cause holes in your roof, but that is only a risk if the ground is higher than your home, or another building is close by that is taller than your home.
Leaky Roof Repair McHenry
Fixing a leaky roof is always easier when the hole is small. A small enough hole can be fixed by a small patch on the wood underlayment and replacement of the roofing material around the patch. When the hole gets bigger, the cost goes up. A large enough hole will require complete replacement of the roof section which will increase the size of the area that will need to be worked on. This increases the length of time for the repair and the number of people required for the repair, making it more costly than a small hole. Once your roof has been replaced and all damage repaired, you should expect your roof to last as long as the original would.
