There are many things that can contribute to roof deterioration. Some we don’t have much control over. For example, natural sun and water exposure can have long-term effects on the life of a roof as well as any short-term exposure to airborne contaminants. Another example would be any structural movement/expansion that is not accommodated by the existing roofing system.
There are however some things you can do to prevent damage to your roof that are frequently overlooked:
- Modifying your roof to fit the needs of the use of the building. Any increase in interior humidity can cause severe condensation issues.
- Maintaining your roof through quarterly/annual maintenance or inspection can help assess what repairs need to be done.
- Fixing and repairing even the smallest job promptly will have a significant impact on the life of your roof.
