Roof rot is a trauma to the homeowners. It may not appear to be a big deal because, after all, “out of sight, out of mind,” right? When you notice water spots on a ceiling or plaster peeling off, be sure it’s time to look in the attic for the source of the problem. We at Beneficial Roofing are experts at not only resolving but also preventing this issue.

Roof Rot: What Causes It?

Roof rot can be caused by a variety of factors, but the following are the three most common ones:

Humidity caused by temperature, condensed moisture and ventilation may cause roof rot. You might be wondering, “What exactly is roof rot?” Roof rot, or dry rot happens when your attic has too much moisture. Another possible cause is a water leak in your roof, which allows water to penetrate into the attic.

What are your strategies for dealing with roof rot?

It is possible to “repair” dry rot if the affected areas are not critical to the structure’s stability. If the problem isn’t with a beam, joint, or flooring, it might be worth repairing rather than replacing. Make sure you find the source of the problem before handling with the damaged wood. Once you’ve fixed the roof, plumbing leaks, poor ventilation, or a damaged gutter, you can concentrate on the wood.

Why should you hire a professional to help you with your roofing project?

Expertise is crucial

The process of replacing and repairing a roof is a technical one. A roofing contractor must have experience with a variety of roofing projects. This means they can spot structural flaws and errors that you might miss if you replaced or repaired the roof. As a result, the likelihood of roof problem in future is reduced.

Robust safety

The most common accidents related to roof repair are slips and falls. To ensure the safety of their roofers, a professional company spends in safety equipment, and insurance policy.

Services with warranty

The majority of roofing contractors provide warranties on both the materials they use and the workmanship they provide. If anything goes wrong after repair or installation, they will correct it for free for the duration of the warranty.

Thorough roof inspection

An experienced roofer will conduct an in-depth roof inspection before beginning a roof repair or replacement project. They’ll also spot any existing or potential roof damage. See us at All American Roofing for your upcoming roofing requirement.
