The Most Common Roofing Threats You Need to Know

Contents

A solid and reliable roof makes a big difference in protecting your home. But if it isn’t cared for and maintained properly, it won’t last long against the weather. This is the only way to ensure it stays in good condition throughout its expected life span and slow down its natural deterioration. And as a homeowner, you should also understand how it’s constantly exposed to elements that can compromise its performance. These include:

Strong Wind Speeds

High wind speeds can be harsh for some homes and roofing systems. This is because they can quickly lift poorly-maintained shingles and leave the roof more exposed to the natural elements. Damaged and loose shingles are also more vulnerable to wind and should be repaired immediately to prevent further damage to your roof’s health. They can also turn loose shingles and other debris into projectiles. This can cause dents, punctures, and other additional damage to your roof’s surface and the rest of the home exterior.

Ultraviolet Rays

The sun’s heat and ultraviolet (UV) rays contribute to the wear and tear of your asphalt shingles. Without proper maintenance, the chemicals on the roofing materials may soon dry out, resulting in buckling, splitting, or cracking.

Debris

Leaves, twigs, pine needles, branches, and other types of debris can collect on your roof and in your gutters. They retain moisture, which can be bad news for your roof because they promote premature rot. Once they accumulate in your gutters, they prevent water runoff from flowing toward the downspouts and away from your property. Roof cleaning and maintenance are the only ways you can safeguard the structure. Though it would also be in your best interest to trim off overhanging branches of nearby trees to minimize debris.

Working with Bone Dry Roofing was best decision I made to deal with a leak in my roof. They took their time to correctly determine where the leak was coming from and the best way to fix it! And, they did! Everyone I worked with from their staff was awesome! I will definitely use them again!!

Initially called this company for a quote because I saw their truck in Denver and the driver used their blinker. Compared to 2 other roofing companies their quote was in the middle and was later adjusted for less materials being used than expected. After signing the contract they were ready to start the next week on a garage roof and home roof repair (weather permitting). The team was respectful of our home & our neighbor’s. Throughout the entire process the communication was great. Highly recommend!

Fernando did an amazing job! He was very friendly. We have a very pitched roof and so I was very impressed with his bravery.
