If you have a little one in your house, you want to provide a safe environment for them. The last thing you want is a leak to develop in their room. This water is dirty and can cause mold if not taken care of quickly. In this video, you will learn the roots to common roofing issues.
It is important to have your roof inspected periodically to prevent such leaks. You can also climb a ladder up to your roof to take a look for yourself.
For example, you may see a shingle that is slightly out of place. Maybe a windstorm started pulling at it ever so slightly. However, this may be enough to cause a leak if the shingles are no longer overlapping each other properly. Sometimes, shingles just get old and start causing leaks. Generally, shingle roofs last between 20 and 25 years. If your roof is approaching this lifespan, it may be best to have the whole roof replaced rather than simply repairing the shingle. This is because an old roof is much more likely to produce more leaks.
