The roof is one of the many essential parts of the exterior of the house as it plays a key role in protecting the interiors and the house’s inhabitants from extreme weather conditions. From the blazing rays of the sun in the summer, the powerful torrential rains, to the biting frosty winds of winter, the roof is the first line of defense of any home – which is why it can sustain some major damages without your realization.
These damages do not start big – they can begin from something as simple as a small hole that lets a few trickles of rainwater seep through the framing and seams of the wall. But they can quickly escalate into more serious problems when left unattended for far too long.
Fortunately, they aren’t hard to diagnose, which is important as tracking them down will help you gauge more effectively if you need to call a repairman ASAP. Here are the most common roof problems and how they can be fixed, as seen in this infographic by All County Exteriors.
