In our last blog, we went over two of the lesser-known risks of having a leaky roof, including mold, mildew, and the health issues they create. We always get worried when we see spring approaching – we know there are so many roofs in the Denver area that have been damaged by winter winds and temperatures – roofs that are not ready to take the onslaught of spring rains. Sure, it’s business for us, but it’s stressful for everyone else.
That is why we are going to share some more ways that a leaky roof can hurt you – in hopes that you will at least contact us for a free inspection!
- Wasted money and energy
- When water gets into your attic, it soaks and compromises your insulation. Insulation is your bank account’s friend – it keeps your home from losing and absorbing too much heat. When it’s compromised, your HVAC systems have to work harder, and you pay for it with your hard-earned money.
- Fire danger
- This one seems impossible – how does the presence of water represent a fire hazard?
- Here’s how: if you have any electrical wiring in your leaky attic, the moisture can cause wires to short and spark onto dry areas in your attic. And then you’ve got a fire on your hands, thanks to water. It’s ironic, and totally unnecessary. Get your roof inspected and cared for!
