5 Common Things That Are Ruining Your Roof

Do you find your once beautiful roof looking rough after experiencing an up-and-down rollercoaster ride? Well, don't feel bad: roofs take quite the beating over time; however, some unexpected forces could be taking an impactful toll that you don't even recognize and could turn solid into subpar instantly! But fear not - don't panic. Milledge Roofing Company is a premier roofing contractor and has you covered. Here are 5 factors that may be wrecking it and how we can keep our roofing in peak condition!

Debris

Imagine an overly-windy day filled with leaves, branches, and debris dancing merrily across your roof like it's some kind of leaf party! While these loose particles might appear harmless at first, their presence could spell disaster for its health; debris like this traps moisture that breeds mold and mildew growth which over time leads to rot, threatening its existence - all this leaves debris can spell ruin.

Solution: Utilizing a ladder, climb to your roof, and clean away debris regularly. Furthermore, installing gutter guards could prevent clogged gutters while improving your roof's drainage and keeping things drier for longer.

Moss

Who knew tiny green plants could be so cunning? Moss may look attractive along your garden pathway. Still, it can quickly become your roof's worst enemy when left to thrive on moist shaded roofs where its root system burrows deep beneath shingles, eventually lifting and dislodging them altogether.

Solution: When it comes to roof moss infestation, don't panic! A moss-killing solution or mixture of water and vinegar should do the trick to eradicate it from your property safely. Prevention should always come first, so consider trimming any overhanging tree branches to let sunlight in more freely for quicker recovery and to keep moss away.

Poor Ventilation

Just as we need fresh air, roofs also need proper ventilation! A lack of proper venting in your attic can result in heat and moisture build-up, which damages shingles from within - leading them to blister, crack, and become less effective at protecting homes over time.

Solution: Make sure that your attic is well-ventilated by installing vents and ensuring proper airflow - this will not only extend the life of your roof but will keep your home cooler during those hot summer days!

Shady Algae

Ah, algae! That dreadful slimy green goo that loves to find its way onto our roofs! While not as harmful as moss growth, algae growth still poses a danger. Black streaks from its growth may appear and reduce the curb appeal of homes in its path - creating unattractive streaks across your shingles in no time!

Solution: Gently scrub those algae stains away with water and bleach, protecting your landscaping below as you clean. For those not keen on bleach, algae-resistant shingles are available, which may help stop its further spread.

DIY Disasters

While DIY projects can be extremely satisfying, it is best left up to professionals when it comes to roofing. Well-meaning individuals might try fixing issues themselves only to cause more harm. Roofers specialize in their craft; mistakes could mean big leaks and headaches!

Solution: Don't try to fix it alone- get professionals' help! Reputable roofing companies employ experts with all of the skills and know-how required to solve any roofing issue without fail. Plus, warranties are typically provided so you have peace of mind knowing your roof will remain protected and in safe hands.
