House Not Feel as Warm as the Thermostat Displays? It Might be Your Roof

January is one of the coldest months. If you turn on the heater and feel as if your home is not as warm as it should be, it might be time for a roof repair or replacement. If you have any concerns when it comes to your roof call us today and schedule and estimate.

Problematic Roof Might Let Cool Air into Your House

You may imagine your roof as your first line of defense against the weather elements. If the roof has experienced any damage and currently has missing, bucking, or cracked shingles, and if the chimney flashing has come loose, it has created multiple openings through which the cool air from the outdoors may make its way inside the house. For example, if it rains, and the insulation directly under the roof gets moist, it’ll lead to fast corrosion of roofing elements, like studs and fasteners. Besides this damage, accumulated dampness might encourage warping, bowing, and/or growth of bacteria and mold. It’ll place your property’s whole structure at risk, as well as your loved one’s safety and health.

 

Compromised Roof Might Lead to More Expensive Utility Bills

Early on, those indications of damage might not be obvious, yet what you may see is your utility bill increasing. When the outdoor cool air enters your home, you and your loved ones will begin to feel it, even if you have your heat on. When that happens, you’ll want to make your house substantially warmer for longer time periods just to remain comfortable indoors. As most of us know, it’ll hike up the utility bill.
