Common Problems With Roofs
Trees: Trees are a very common problem that people don’t think about until they are falling over into the side of your home. Large trees are beautiful, but they often have large branches, and in wind storms or heavy snow, the branches can fall off and land on your roof, ripping off shingles and even putting holes in your roof. The safest thing to do would be to cut off any large branches that may hang over the sides of your roof, just to protect yourself and your home.
Animals: Believe it or not, birds can play a big part in roofing problems. Small birds, animals, and insects can get into your roof and chip away at its integrity. Over time this will cause damage and will need to be looked at. If you see a bird nest on your roof that, you may want to call a professional or try to move it to another location.
Maintenance: Or should we say lack of it. Usually, something starts out as a small problem that gets looked past, but the small problems over time turn into bigger problems that can cause serious roofing problems. It is important to get your roof inspected regularly.
