If it’s clear your roof is in need of a total replacement, never hesitate to call a residential roof replacement expert to get the job done. Unfortunately, due to either a lack of time or funding, homeowners do tend to put off roof replacement projects which can often spell bad news for your home.
In this article, Sully-Jones Roofing lists the four consequences of not replacing your roof if needed, beginning with:
1. Devaluing Your Home – Putting off a roof replacement project can easily cause your home’s overall value to fall, which can be a problem if you have plans of selling in the near future. This is because not only is the roof a vital part of completing your home’s aesthetic appeal but also because not a lot of homeowners are willing to pay the asking price for a home that they’ll have to renovate right away.
2. Leaks – A roof that needs replacement is a roof that leaks and as such, not replacing the roof right away can cause leaks around your home. These leaks can be hazardous to your family’s health as they can encourage mold growth around your home and cause respiratory problems for your family members, especially children and the elderly.
3. Pest Infestation – If your roof is damaged and has cracks, make sure to replace the affected areas right away. That way, you won’t have to deal with a pest infestation in your home. This is because pests such as termites, ants, and rodents can easily enter your home through the cracks around your roof and build a nest in your attic or walls. To replace your roof as soon as possible, don’t hesitate to turn to the residential and commercial roofing pros of Sully-Jones Roofing.
4. Increased Energy Bills – Neglecting to replace your damaged roof can cause your electric bills to increase in the long run as the holes that can cause your roof to leak can also allow cold and hot air in and out. This can make your HVAC system work harder than it should, which can cause your energy bills for the month to spike.
