Booking roof inspections during the later stages of the summer and fall season is a great way to get repairs done before the weather worsens. Generally, there are two types of damage in roofing: directly noticeable damage and indirect damage. The former comprises damages such as sagging, moisture or leaks, algae, fungus growth, damaged flashings, blistering, and visible roof damage.
Common symptoms of water leakage are water staining, mold and mildew, and pooled water. Indirect damage may occur due to factors such as the roof’s age, clogging of gutters due to debris from the roof, or staining on interior ceilings and walls. If your roof is nearing the 25th-year mark, it may be a good idea to have it checked for damages.
Having a roof repaired in the early stages of damage may avoid the need to replace the entire roof in the future if the problem persists. Taking timely action can save a lot of money and time. Some factors to consider while choosing multi-family roofing contractors are:
- Experience in the field
- Testimonials or reviews
- Location and pricing
