It’s tempting to ignore minor repairs around the house, especially if they are jobs that you can’t handle on your own. You might be putting it off for financial reasons, too, unsure about what a minor roof repair could end up costing you. Our roofing contractor in Miami has seen it happen over and over, though. Minor roof repairs are put off until they became a much bigger issue, costing the family thousands in restoration costs when they could have had the issue fixed for a tenth of the price if they’d had it done earlier. Here is what happens:
- Small cracks and holes in your roof allow water to get inside. That water can spread anywhere from your attic to your basement, causing damage to the structure of your home. Water damage can end up rotting floorboards, walls, and flooring, all of which will need to be ripped out and replaced.
- Water that leaks into the home can end up causing more than just water damage–it starts to grow mold and mildew. This isn’t just unpleasant, it can be a health hazard to your family.
- Rodents and other unwanted pests can use the damage to your roof as an access point to your home. You could end up with an infestation that causes damage to your home as well as creating health hazards–not to mention the exterminator fees you’ll need to pay to get rid of pests.
