Despite the attic’s integral role in keeping your home cool, there are a lot of misconceptions about this often neglected part of the house. In particular, there’s a lot of confusion about the risks and benefits of attic insulation.
The vast majority of the time, your roof will be able to protect your property from the weather. Unfortunately, there’s no such thing as an indestructible roof. Your roof will eventually have problems caused by weather damage and a wide variety of other factors. You should know what to expect if you schedule a roof repair project. Fortenberry Roofing, a trusted residential and commercial roof contractor, explains what you should expect when you work with us.
In West Texas, getting your roof professionally inspected, even when nothing appears to be wrong, isn’t excessive. A routine checkup every 12 months is enough to stay on top of your roofing system’s condition and head off major leakages.
Roofs need proper drainage to prevent moisture damage and those with hardly any slope depend on it even more. It doesn’t take long before ponding water results in severe leakage. When left unaddressed for too long, the entire roof could collapse due to hydrostatic pressure. Considering that one-inch deep ponds typically weigh about 5.2 pounds per square foot, it’s imperative to have thoughtfully designed drains that inhibit significant water accumulation.
