Having a roof over your head is one of the fundamental human necessities. If you’re lucky enough to own a home, that roof all of a sudden becomes a big responsibility and shouldn’t be taken for granted. Your roof can only protect you as long as you protect your roof. It’s a two-way street. Since we’re all living in a galaxy far far away these days, we’re going to try to put this in terms that you can understand.
One flaw in your roofing system can destroy your whole house
Imagine that your home is the Death Star, and your roof is like the surrounding shield providing extra protection for your home. The first time we saw the Death Star it seemed nearly indestructible. But then you looked a little closer and it turned out there was one little flaw that could destroy the whole thing in one fell swoop.
If you don’t take care of your roof, if you don’t inspect your roof on a regular basis – twice a year – then one tiny cracked shingle could be like the critical hit to your roofs “reactor core” causing a chain reaction of destruction that will eventually take down your entire home.
Okay, maybe that was a little dramatic, but it’s really not that far off. Your roof is a complicated system that needs to be strong and properly installed for your roof to protect you. It’s is the shield around your home, and if anything penetrates that shield a whole slew of problems could follow. The biggest problem is moisture penetration. Water is the Darth Vadar of home maintenance. If you are in tune with your home, you should be able to spot a disturbance in the force before moisture takes control of your home.
