How do you make roofs last?
A resilient structure can withstand whatever Mother Nature throws at it while still maintaining its usefulness. This rings true in residential properties, with roofing systems playing a big role in ensuring their homes are protected from the harsh elements.
In today’s blog post, Achten’s Quality Roofing, your local roofing services provider, discusses the factors that make roofing systems resilient.
What Makes A Roof Last?
A resilient roofing system can withstand strong winds. In fact, several roofing materials on the market today can handle wind speeds of up to 110 miles per hour. Of course, roofers have to follow strict guidelines on roof design based on such recommendations. They reinforce the perimeters and corners to protect the roof against potential blow-offs and tears.
Weak roofs are not moisture resistant. A weak roof allows moisture in. Over time, this moisture allows mold and mildew to grow inside attics and crawl spaces. In addition to wood rot and biological growth that would require roof cleaning, the problem itself can also affect the home’s other interior components. Such issues won’t manifest if the roof is installed correctly. A highly-resilient roof keeps water out and prevents moisture damage.
The impact of wind-carried debris can affect an otherwise fragile roofing system. Cracks, dents and other superficial damage could become apparent, exposing the inner layers of the roof to the elements. If you are in pursuing a roof repair or replacement, consider the impact rating of the roofing material you are looking for.
