Avoid Water Damage To Your Roof

2/7/2022 (Permalink)

Water Damage to your roof can be a real bummer.  But water damage to your roof can also be prevented.  Your roof can be extra susceptible to water damage if the roofing materials are aging out. Old roofs are not as effective in keeping water out.  An added element to this is debris on the roof of your home.  Maintaining the roof you have by replacing missing shingles and keeping debris away, such as leaves and twigs can help keep water from being trapped between the roof and debris, thus enabling water to seep through your roof.  Storms and strong winds can bring both missing shingles and debris to your roof, this is why it is important to know the condition of your roof and maintain it before a storm hits and brings you extra problems...

SERVPRO of Farmingdale / Massapequa can help your Long Island home or business when these problems happen to occur.
