In Washington, rain is a regular occurrence that locals learn to live with and work around, but what effect does year-round rainfall have on your roof? Rain, specifically heavy ongoing rain can wreak havoc on all of the structures of the home, especially the roof. DG Contracting are the experts in roofing, and they shed light on how rain can affect your home.
Although shingles protect very well against water via an impervious shield, shingles can become damaged by rainwater in multiple ways. The first is by coming loose or falling off and becoming dislodged. Many times, after a rainstorm has passed, owners will notice shingles are scattered on their property, or they might see broken or loose shingles hanging out of place on the roofline. These must be repaired immediately. Any exposed areas on the roof can lead to water damage, leaks, and mold.
DG Contracting understands that mold is a problem that no one wants to deal with, but unfortunately, consistent wetness from rain causes mold, mildew, and algae growth to occur rapidly. Homeowners should have their roofs regularly inspected by a professional to see if any mold or other growth is happening under the roofs shingles, tiles, or other roofing materials. Mold can penetrate the roofing structures and grow into the home. Before toxic growth takes place or spreads, seek professional help. If you notice that your roof is black or green, you need to hire a licensed roofer to inspect, clean, and repair it properly.
Tiles are one roofing material that often cracks due to excessive rain. Over the years, you might notice that your tiles are broken, chipped, or discolored. It’s imperative to get them repaired to prevent water seepage and leaks, as these will cause further damage to your roofing structure and your home.
