Whether the house that one lives in belongs to himself or is a rented one. Every person needs a sheltered place to live and that too strong and an enduring one.
House is not an easy task to find again and this makes all the people choose ‘Repairing’ over ‘Relocating’.
A Leaky Roof ‘Is’ A Great Deal
To talk about repairing, one must know it’s not an easy victory. As it truly depends on the complexion of the problem. If it’s just the tap needs repair or the chipping paint on the walls. It’s not one big of a deal.
But if the Roof calls for renovation, ‘Delaying’ is not the right move. Because delay in roof repairing may cause damage.
When you see any of your room’s roof leaking you may find it a petty issue that would go away with time or something that doesn’t require attention. But it indeed is an alarming situation.
1. The Unimaginable Loss!
A cracked or punctured area anywhere in the roof is important because it can harm the health and safety of the residents. It can be more than what meets the eye. If the leakage is constant and stays there for longer periods, it may lead to a bigger cost.
Both monetary and health-related. Because the uninterrupted penetration of water into the roof will let it move to the house walls and where the electric boards are. And the worse could happen!
2. Additions to Your Electricity Consumption.
Moving on, another way how the dripping in the roof might affect the residents could be adding to their electricity bills. Whenever there is a wind storm the people living in a house must check their roof after it settles down.
It is very noteworthy because the wind might have taken away a chip or moves a brick from the roof. Right now this might not appear not much of a deal but will grow bigger with time.
When the roof loses a brick or shingle, a gap will take the place. And that gap will as a door to let in the water as well as the outside weather condition.
For instance, if it is summer the heat will make its way to the insides the house and will make the aura warm. And vice-versa in winters. So consequently, residents will be using more of the Air Conditioner or Heating service which is directly proportional to the electricity consumption. Causing the bill to shoot up, unfortunately.
3. Worsening Of Damage; As Good A Chance As Anything.
The earliest possibility is of the chipping and fading of roof paint if it was there in the first place. The roof then might witness to look like holding some water spots all over it that looks ugly trust me.
Eventually, the water will start piercing out of the permeable layer of paint on the roof. And later on, the continuous water leakage will destroy the decking, the insulation layer, the attic, and lastly, the foundation of the Roof. Which will make it too risky to be living under it anymore. Therefore, proved again – ‘Delay in Roof Repairing May Cause More Damage’. So plan a repair and ring the professional, when you still have time on your hands!
4. Death Growing On Your Roof.
Everyone knows what mold is and how life-threatening it can get. It’s mainly a fungus, living on moisture that changes colors as it becomes stronger and deadlier. The stronger it grows the more Toxic it turns! It is harmless in smaller amounts but if big enough, it may cost you the health of your loved ones.
Specifically, people with asthma and those who are prone to allergic reactions may fall victim. The only thing even scarier is the ability of the mold to rapidly multiply its self. Because you might never know hoe that filthy fungus is growing just under your nose if you don’t notice enough.
5. Poor Pets Succumbing To Death
If any inhabitant owns a pet animal, the mold can be a nightmare for them. Because animals, be it of any kingdom usually possess the capability of shrinking themselves to transfer through even minor holes, just like any liquid. The pet owner if is not careful with where the animal wanders, there is a greater chance that they will lose their pet. As they might reach closer to the mold and fall sick.
However, people with no pets can’t risk caring any lesser, because scientists have discovered how mice and squirrels love secret whole to hide and build homes. So good luck with the roofing company! Or act smarter.
Lastly, all these dangers aren’t worth delaying the repairs. So as soon the roof rings a bell, act prompt, and protect everything dear to you.
