Last month we talked about 3 roof maintenance myths you should know are false. Here are 2 more roof maintenance myths that could cost you thousands in repair bills.
1. If There is No Obvious Damage to Your Roof Then It’s in Good Shape
Big problems don’t just appear out of nowhere. If there is major roof damage, you can be guaranteed that it started somewhere small. Maybe there was a tiny leak, a loose shingle, or a crack. Whatever it was, there was something that regular maintenance would have caught and fixed that would likely have prevented a giant repair bill if corrected before it had time to get out of control.
2. Attic Fans Only Affect the Attic, Not the Roof Above It
Proper attic ventilation is important for a whole host of reasons. If you let excess heat build up in your attic, it cooks the contents inside and puts extra strain on your HVAC system to compensate. However, that excess heat doesn’t just damage the contents of your attic. It also damages your roof. Letting all that excess heat cook your roof degrades the quality of your roofing materials and can significantly decrease the lifespan of your roof even with regular maintenance.
