April showers may bring May flowers, but they can also bring unexpected consequences. If its been a while since your last roof inspection, it may be time. Heavy downpours in the rainy season can adversely affect your home’s roof. To minimize these effects, contact a Maryland roof repair specialist, and get your roof in tip-top shape.
Prevent Damage to Your Attic and Ceiling
Leaks don’t stop at the roof, they can seep through and damage your attic and your ceiling as well. There are multiple signs that your roof has been leaking onto your ceiling. Look out for any darkening of the paint or any bubbles or expansions in the ceiling’s plaster. It’s better to catch these problems early, so look out for the signs.
Watch Out for Mold
Perhaps one of the most critical of dangers caused by a leaky roof is mold. Mold can spread from the attic and ceiling into your home’s HVAC system, causing serious negative health effects for your family. Black mold is among the most common forms of mold, and can be very dangerous. Keep your roof in good order, and keep your family safe.
Possible Problems With Your Electricity
Everyone knows that water and electricity don’t mix. Many home’s electrical wires are located in the attic, which can make any possible leaks all the more dangerous. Leaks have the potential to short out your home’s electrical wires, and can even start a fire. Periodic checks of your home’s electrical systems can help prevent any fires, so keep an eye out.
