Most homeowners take their roofs for granted until there’s a problem. At His and Hers Roofing, we have seen a lot of roof damage caused by moisture that could have been prevented with regular roof maintenance and inspections. Understanding how moisture can damage your roof is the first step to preventing severe damage to your roof.
When damage does occur, entrust your roofing in Orlando, FL, to our team. We offer professional repair services that will keep your roof in good condition and protect your home as it should. Your home’s roof takes a lot of punishment from outdoor elements like rain, hail, heat, and snow, but moisture is one of your roof’s worst enemies. Here are a few tips for discovering if moisture will be a problem with your roof.
Poorly Ventilated Attic
Condensation comes from inside your house and can do severe damage to insulation and wood. Over time condensation can cause structural damage and lead to costly roof repair jobs. If this happens, we can have your roof repaired in a fast and efficient manner. To help avoid condensation from damaging your roof, use attic fans to ventilate attics and prevent moisture from building up.
No Insulation or Vapor Barriers
Increasing insulation is an excellent way to reduce condensation and prevent moisture issues with your roof. Vapor barriers are another great choice for reducing condensation. You should get expert advice from a roofing contractor before considering having a vapor barrier installed since these polyurethane barriers can sometimes cause more damage in hot weather conditions if not taken down.
Broken, cracked, and leaky roof tiles, shingles, and other roofing materials can allow water to leak inside your home. Leaking tiles can allow water to damage wood, joist, and other parts of your roof’s structure. Have your roof regularly inspected to locate damaged tiles and shingles before severe structural damage occurs.
