Roof damage that seems minor often goes unnoticed or overlooked by homeowners. “It’s just a little worn-out” or “It’s just one shingle” could be a whole lot worse than it seems.
So what exactly could happen?
- Leaks. Water damage can cause some of the worst problems in homes. A fly-away shingle, ice dams, and condensation could all lead to water getting in.
- Unwelcome guests. In the cold months, little critters would love to snuggle up in a warm home to wait out the winter. Spaces in your roof that make it easy for these furry creatures to get in can mean home damage and a big infestation problem.
- Rot. The wood in your home is most likely to rot after ice dams build up and cause leaks, or when attic condensation builds up.
- Mold. Gross, right? Mold thrives wherever there is moisture. If water is lingering in or around your roof, your home could be at risk.
