We understand that you may dread calling a roof repair company because you’re going to have to be home to show them the leak, spend money on the repair and possibly listen to a sales pitch. However, ignoring that roof leak can lead to much more than spending some time and money.
Lost Energy Efficiency
Your roofing system influences your home’s energy efficiency more than you may think. When you have a roof leak, your insulation gets wet – which makes it completely useless. That leads to heated or cooled air in your home escaping more easily through your ceiling which means higher heating or cooling costs.
Mold & Mildew Growth
Not only does your insulation keep heat and cooled air in your home, but it also keeps the damp air in your bathroom in the house. When your insulation isn’t working it allows that moisture into your attic which can lead to mold and mildew growth in your attic. Because water follows the path of least resistance, water that leaks into your home and goes down your walls can mean you have mold growing between your walls which can make you sick.
When you call a roof repair company as soon as you notice a roof leak, you prevent damage to other parts of your home. Other things that can require repairing or replacing when you neglect a roof leak include:
- Drywall repair and painting – once the water damages your drywall, replacing it is the only option which leads to needing to repaint.
- Bathroom electrical fans and lights – if water gets into the light or fan, it’s unsafe to continue to use it.
- HVAC system – When your HVAC system runs more frequently due to poor energy efficiency of your home, it wears out faster.
- Window frames – Water that gets behind and around your window frames mean that your windows aren’t secure.
