What Are The Risks or Dangers of an Old Roof?

An old roof is easy to overlook if it still seemingly does the job it’s supposed to. Plus, it’s understandable to wait as long as possible for roof replacement in CT due to the cost of the project. But there will come a point where it’s more dangerous and costly to keep your old roof intact rather than getting it replaced. Here are some of the main risks and dangers of not replacing your roof soon enough.

Water Leaks Can Cause Major Damage

When residential roofing shingles start wearing down, it could lead to water leaks and other damage. Old shingles can also become more brittle and not withstand falling branches and other debris like they used to. When water starts leaking through the roof, you could have major issues on your hands. If you’re lucky, you’ll notice the leak right away. The reality is many people don’t see it right away and the leak leads to mold growth, rotting wood, and other problems that could be detrimental to your health and put your safety at risk.

Structural Stability Could Be Compromised

If water leaks go on for too long without being detected, it could weaken the structural integrity of your home. Plywood, beams, rafters, and other structures can begin rotting and your roof will be at risk of collapsing. If you suspect or identify a water leak, it’s best to schedule a professional roof inspection to confirm the amount of damage that has already been done.

Increased Fire Risk

Delaying roof replacement in CT can also increase the fire risk to your home. When water leaks through the roof and gets between walls, it could come in contact with electrical wires. Water and electricity don’t mix, so it could create a spark and a devastating fire.

Higher Likelihood Of Pest Infestations

Pests and rodents like rats, cockroaches, and more thrive in damp environments. If you have a broken or missing roof shingle, they will find their way in to make your home their home. Once this happens, it can be very difficult to remove them. In addition to the damage they can do to your home, they can also present some health dangers.
