During the strong rainstorms that regularly hit Fort Lauderdale, water frequently finds its way into tens of thousands of homes. One of the most common ways that water enters a house is through the roof, but it can also enter through skylights, walls, windows, doors, and attic vents. Read on to find out more about the potential risks of roof leaks that often come after a storm.
Mold and Mildew Growth
During a heavy rainstorm, it’s not uncommon for a roof leak to develop. If it does, water will collect in the roof, the ceiling, or the walls. In only a matter of days, mold and mildew can start to grow. Aside from the serious allergy and health problems for the occupants inside, mold and mildew growth can soften the roof and ceiling until they collapse.
When too much water gets in through the roof, it can start to leak onto the floor. This can cause puddles of water to collect, which can potentially ruin the carpet and whatever furniture and possessions are exposed to the water. If water starts to collect on the second story or the attic of a home, it can start to seep into the ceiling of the first floor or even drip onto the first floor.
The unsightly cracks that develop on the walls and ceilings of a home are oftentimes the result of a roof leak. If left untreated, cracked walls will invite more water into the house. The wallboard will even start to come off of the walls if an untreated roof leak begins saturating the walls.

The first thing you should do is secure your home’s roofing shingles. Next, seal all of the cracks you see on your roof.

Sometimes minor roof damage can be a stroke of good luck, as it gives you the opportunity to seek corrective roof maintenance services that will fix the problem before it gets worse. To discover the importance of roof maintenance and repair for your house or commercial building, continue reading.
It Adds Years to the Life of Your Roof
If you don’t want to have to replace your roof, corrective roof maintenance is oftentimes an excellent option. By hiring a roofing contractor to re-coat and restore your roof, you can add up to 10 years to the life of your residential or commercial roof.
It Saves Money Over Re-Roofing
Not only does corrective roof maintenance extend the life of your roof, but it also ensures that you will pay less to maintain it over the remainder of its lifetime. Many roofs can be sealed and repaired more than once, which further increases the number of years before re-roofing becomes necessary.
It Removes Mold and Moss
Every year, mold, moss, and mildew cause legitimate health problems and property damage in Fort Lauderdale. Fortunately, corrective roof maintenance will always include de-molding and de-mossing services.
It Fixes the Leaks in Your Roof
During a rainstorm, water will be drawn to the penetration points on a roof, which is where the drains, railings, vents, and air conditioning units are secured. If these areas aren’t properly sealed, water will get in and form cracks. During corrective roof maintenance, roofers will repair the cracks and penetration points on the roof to put an end to roof leaks.

The roof of your home or building will last longer and have fewer problems if it receives preventative maintenance. Also known as roof restoration, preventative maintenance costs only a fraction of the cost of re-roofing a building or house. Especially in Fort Lauderdale, where hurricanes and intense rainstorms can cause serious damage, preventative maintenance is absolutely necessary.
Not only does preventative maintenance protect the structure of the building or house, but it also protects all of the important things inside of it from water damage. And if you own a condominium, preventative maintenance ensures that your roofing budget will be reasonable, and that you won’t have to put your residents through the trouble of re-roofing.
Unlike re-roofing, preventative maintenance is considered a tax-deductable expense for businesses. To learn more about the advantages of preventative maintenance for your roof, call the Fort Lauderdale roofers at Paul Bange Roofing at (954) 889-5972.
