5 Reasons You Need Our Roof Flashing

Roof flashing from Kozy KollarAs a homeowner, you should take great pride in the overall well being of your home. Now, there is a lot of work that goes in to being a homeowner, but some projects are simply more important than others. For example, a problem roof has got to take precedent over getting that new, above ground pool put in. Your roof is your home’s first defense against nature’s often harsh elements and a damanged roof can cause a myriad of problems. However, with Kozy Kollar’s roof flashing, you can handle any roof water problems that you find.

Without effective roof flashing, your home is susceptible to a number of dangerous and even unhealthy consequences. The following are but five problems caused by a damaged roof.

  1. Mold and mildew – Prolonged water damage can create a breeding ground for mold and mildew. Mold spores can then travel through your HVAC system and find its way into your furniture, carpets, and clothes. Chronic mold exposure can trigger asthma attacks and even lead to asthmatic type symptoms in otherwise healthy individuals.
  2. Fire hazard – If you have exposed electrical wiring anywhere near excessive amounts of moisture stemming from a damaged roof, you run the risk of causing a fire in your home.
  3. Household accidents – When roof problems have been left unattended for long enough, it can create puddles of water that have the potential to be dangerous to you and your family. Slips and falls in the home are some of the most common accidents in the U.S.
  4. Wasting energy – With just one or more problem area in your roof, a great deal of the air from inside your home is able to escape; increasing your energy and heating bills significantly.
  5. Structural damage – Chronic water exposure can damage ceiling panels, rafters, and wall framing. Rotted wood can lead to incredibly expensive repairs and also endanger the lives of anyone living in your home.
