As the leading roofing company in our local area, Tittle Brothers Construction believes in making sure that our customers make well-informed decisions regarding their home improvement projects. That’s why in this two-part blog series, we will discuss important things that homeowners need to know about their roofs. Today, in part one, we will talk about the dangers of a leaky roof.

Decreased Energy Efficiency – Higher utility bills can be caused by serious water intrusion. Constant leaking can deplete the insulation in your attic, reducing its effectiveness. This can lead to energy escaping your home and an increased workload for your utility systems. Fortunately, we can prevent this from happening by locating the roof leak and fixing it. We can also install new insulation to restore your home’s energy efficiency.

Structural Integrity Issues – Roof leaks can also cause damage to several areas of your home’s structure. Examples of water damage include peeling paint, damaged rafters, and weakened or rotten wood framing. Repairing this problem is costly, so as experienced roofing experts, we recommend calling us as soon as you detect a problem in your roof. We will be able to quickly fix your roof and prevent water from causing any further damage.

Mold and Mildew Growth – Roof leaks can increase your home’s humidity, leading to an increased risk of mold and mildew growth. Mold and mildew are unsightly and can aggravate existing health issues. Fortunately, we can easily prevent this problem with our services. We can thoroughly investigate your roof, locate the source of the roof leak, fix it, and then reinforce your roof to prevent leaks from happening again.
