Roof Repair on Long Island
Are you in need of a roof repair on Long Island? While our roofs are designed to keep the elements outside our homes, years of exposure to these factors can wear a roof to the point where it can no longer do its job properly. Sometimes this results in missing shingles, other times leaks may form in your attic, or perhaps there is an unwanted visitor trying to make a home in your soffit or fascia board.

The Dangers of a Roof in Need of Repair
If your Long Island home has a roof in need of repair, every day it isn’t fixed is another day you’re tempting fate. A leaky roof in and of itself isn’t the end of the world, but the damage it can cause to your house is reason enough to take the necessary actions to get it fixed. For starters, the most obvious result of a damaged roof is the fact that moisture can enter your house. The water that is able to come in poses threats both to your home and your family’s health. For your home, the water that enters can compromise the structural integrity of your home and damage your attic and ceiling. Constant water presence can weaken and rot your roof framing and cause ceiling paint to darken or bubble.
Further, then the damage a leaky roof can do to your home, a damaged roof can prove to be a threat to your whole family. For starters, if water enters your home it can encourage the growth of mold in your home. Black mold, which thrives on dampened wood, can lead to negative health effects like asthma, hay fever, and sinus inflammation. Besides the risk of mold, water that enters your home can lead to a danger of fires. If you have wiring running through your attic or between your ceiling and the attic, the water that leaks through your roof can cause a short and potentially start a fire. You owe it to yourself and your family to get your roof leaks repaired right away to make sure none of this happens to your home.
