Roofing is crucial. It prevents rain and snow from entering your home. It protects you and your family from the outdoors. If you’re like the majority of people, you probably don’t think about your roof until something goes wrong. Below we will discuss the main consequences of putting off roof replacement.

Structure damage and leaks

When you put off replacing your roof, you are essentially asking for water damage. The longer your roof goes without replacement, the more likely it is to leak. Water damage can cause a lot of structural problems in your home. It can also lead to the growth of mold and mildew, which can be dangerous to your health.

Home value decreases

When you put off roof replacement, you are also putting off the inevitable increase in your home’s value. A new roof is one of the most important upgrades you can make to your home. Buy getting a new roof the value of your home will automatically increase. It will also be easy to sell when the time finally comes.

High energy bills

When your roof is leaking, it is not just causing structural damage. It is also causing your energy bills to skyrocket. In the winter, you’re losing heat, and in the summer, you’re losing air conditioning. When you have this unfavorable air conditions your heat bill will add up and become a substantial amount with time.

Health risks

Mold and mildew growth is not the only health risk you put yourself and your family at when you put off roof replacement. All that dirt and debris that comes into your home through those leaks can cause respiratory problems as well as other more serious issues.

Expensive repairs

Leaking roofs can also cause all kinds of other problems, especially electrical ones. You are putting yourself at risk for fires and electrocution when you put off roof replacement. The longer the delay in replacing your roof, the worse this problem will get.
In conclusion, putting off roof replacement can have major consequences. It can lead to problems with your structure, health, energy bills, the value of your home, and safety. Ensure you are taking care of your home by replacing your roof on a regular schedule.

Customer Reviews
What our customers are saying

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!
