A Bad Roof Can Have Enormous and Costly Consequences

August 27 03:21 2020

Roofing is an important element in a clean, safe, and well-maintained property.  Properties are not cheap, and a bad roof can cause enormous damages and health risks.  It is important to be aware of roofing problems before they occur and when a problem is suspected a roofing service specialist like King Koating Roofing, of Toronto should be called immediately, whether for a replacement, or even perhaps a repair.  Commercial properties especially can see significant damages, as they may house many units if they are apartment buildings or have equipment and files that are not easily replaced if damaged.  KKR serves the GTA with both experience in total replacement or repair and maintenance and is proud to do so.

Roof damage can be sneakyIt is not always apparent immediately

Even a small crack in roofing can lead to the buildup of water which then can make its way into the walls and even the wiring in a property.  The signs of roof damage are generally subtle at first and property owners do not usually notice until water damage occurs on the ceiling or appears on the walls.  In some cases, there are no signs whatsoever until a roof collapses completely and this is indeed a dangerous situation, not to mention costly to repair as water removal specialists must then also be engaged.  In shingle roofs, sometimes granules from the shingles are noticed in the gutters or on the ground.  While some of this always occurs, too much signals damages.  Any cracks or tears signal damage, and of course, water spots on walls or ceilings must immediately be addressed as water has now drifted into the rafters and interior portion of a property.  Any portion of a roof that looks like it is sagging or has a “dirty look” to it are also signs of damage. 

Although many individuals might try to repair a roof themselves a reputable roofing service is best.

There is a skill set that is needed to ensure the best possible roof replacement or repair.  There are many components to roof replacement, and many different styles and types of roofing.  From flat roofs to gable and many combinations in between the types of roofing can seem boundless.  The most common type seems to be the flat, with the use of shingles as a component.  Clay roofing is also popular as it is durable and can last 100 years or more.  Whichever type of roof is chosen, however, the construction of the underlayer is important.  Most roofing, especially shingle, requires flashing, which is a barrier between the roof and the property.  Flashing provides the weatherproofing from all elements.

Not all roofs need replacement if damages are slight.

Repairs can sometimes fix minor problems at least for a time.  Maintenance and routine vigilance of a roof should be part of an overall plan, with yearly inspections of each roof done by a reputable roofing service and roof replacement specialist such as King Koating Roofing.  A well-done roof lasts a long time, perhaps 20 years, so doing it properly the first time does save much time, stress, and money.
