Keeping your roof in top condition is essential in maintaining the structural integrity of your home. With this two-part blog, residential roofing experts at Universal Roofing & Exteriors aim to impart critical knowledge on how to care for your roof by recognizing signs of moisture damage and condensation. We also explain how to address those problems with proper ventilation.
Finding water spots or droplets on your walls, particularly near the edges adjacent to your ceiling, doesn’t always mean your roof is leaking. These same signs can be indicative of condensation in your roofing system. They can be brought about by different factors, including poor roof design and installation. If left unchecked, condensation can cause your roofing materials to deteriorate and age much quicker than expected.
Growing Mold and Health Risks
With water damage present in your roof, the chances of mold spreading throughout your home increases too. Mold poses a danger not just to the home’s structure but to the health of you and your family as well.
Lower Temperature and Air Quality Control
Condensation may also cause an increase in humidity levels in your home. With fluctuating temperatures indoors, air quality may easily be compromised. The combination of these factors can produce a contaminant-filled environment and result in an inefficient use of energy.
