A roof is one of the most important, if not the most important, parts of a house. A house is incomplete without a roof and cannot be habitable by the owners. Therefore, a leaky roof is a fault that cannot be forgone. It comes with a lot of troubles to the owner and their property. It may lead to damage that could cost a lot and even bring diseases to the owners. That is why you should make sure you take note of any leakages in your roof and either fix it or report to a professional who will be able to handle the repairs well. Here is why a leaky roof is a dangerous roof.

Increase in Energy Bills

A roof leak will cause the home to lose hot and cool air. This will cause the HVAC systems to overwork, hence using more energy. More energy equates to paying for more electricity, hence overwhelming the household. Furthermore, the leakage interferes with the insulation caused by the attic area, causing all these effects.

Growth of Mold and Mildew

You definitely know anywhere there is idle water, mold grows. Mold and mildew are hazardous to the house and spread slowly from the leaking roof to the Attic, the HVAC system and lastly to furniture in the house. Mold is difficult and costly to get rid of.

Electrical Problems

A leaking roof could also affect any electrical wires that run through the house. In addition, the water leaking could lead to severe consequences such as shorting, which could be the potential for a fire hazard. 

Potential Damage To Your Health

Apart from mold and mildew causing adverse effects to your furniture, it could also affect the health of those in the house, especially those with respiratory sensitivities such as asthma. In addition, mold spores can also affect people with allergies.

Damage to the Attic and Ceiling

The leaking water from a damaged roof could damage the Attic and ceiling by attacking the paint job, wood, and materials used to make the roof. It could also lower the house’s structural integrity since water intrusion can also affect ceiling joints and wall framing.

As we have seen, a leaky roof is dangerous as it encourages the growth of mold and mildew, causes electrical problems that could lead to fires, be a health hazard, damage your Attic and ceiling and finally increase your energy bills.

Customer Reviews
What our customers are saying

Blue Collar Roofers did a complete tear-off and installation at our house. They were fast, professional, and communicated well throughout. The roof looks great, and they went above expectations with new venting (for our old house). We highly recommend them.

Timothy M

Our experience was fantastic. They worked quickly and efficiently and got the work done in a single day and the roof looks amazing. What we appreciated was the transparency of the work that they were doing and any obstacles that came up they immediately communicated with us. Also when they cleaned up the work site it appeared as if they were never there at all. Exceptional work!

I had some roof damage from high winds and I was worried about the potential for more damage due to rain/snow. I called Blue Collar Roofers and spoke with Alex. Alex was great to work with over the phone and sent someone out to assess my roof the very same day. Thankfully I was able to get my roof repaired quickly and the work looks great! Dave did wonderful work! Thank you so much for your great service!
