We all know that the roof of our home or business is the first line of defense against the elements. We know that roofs take a beating from Colorado weather, and that most of the time, they can handle it. But what if you get a little leak? Do you have to act immediately, or is it not a big deal?

This question may seem silly, but you’d be surprised how many people are willing to live with a leaky roof rather than get a free inspection and discuss a way to pay for needed repairs. With spring rains coming, you can’t afford to have a compromised roof. In our last blog, we went over two lesser-known risks that come with a leaky roof, including fire danger and wasted money. Today, we have two more!

  1. Damage to stored items
    • Many people store decorations and more in their attics – attics make for great storage! However, a leaky attic puts everything in it at risk. More than that, moisture likes to travel to walls, damaging plaster and bubbling paint. It also can damage lights and fans mounted in the ceilings.
    • Suddenly, you’re not just paying for a roof repair – you need new drywall, paint, and fixtures. Don’t let this happen!
  2. Slip and fall danger
    • If a leak gets far enough, it will cause puddles you cannot resolve, which poses a risk to anyone in your business or home.
    • Whether you have a home of active kids or a building of employees and customers, puddles are a huge risk. Do what needs to be done to avoid them!
