As the saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. In other words, investing in regular maintenance can maintain the health of your roof system and help you avoid costly expenses down the road. Unfortunately, regular maintenance does not guarantee that your roof won’t deteriorate or sustain damage at some point. When this happens, your roof is going to either require repairs or you may have to get a full roof replacement.
If your roof is in poor shape, it could lead to issues like leaks, mold and mildew build up, and other problems. Which route you take depends on several factors, including the type of damage, age of the system, and how much of the roof has been affected by the damage. Here are a few factors to consider that can help you figure out what type of service your roof is going to need.
