Protecting Your Home & Your Family

Reasons for Roof Repair or Replacement

The Chicago-area climate is hard on your roof. Winter’s heavy snow, sleet, rain and winds can destroy a roof, while the summer’s hot sun causes damage as well. Unfortunately, many homeowners don’t give much thought to their roofs until they realize they have a problem, like leaking or missing shingles.

Here are a few of the issues that may cause you to undertake a roofing project:

  • Roof leaks can allow moisture to enter your home, leading to mold and other water damage problems.
  • Algae growth and staining, if left untreated, can wreak havoc and actually destroy your roof.
  • The formation of rotting on your roof can signify severe problems, including damage to rafters and ceilings.
  • Damage caused by falling objects such as tree branches is usually minor; however, if not repaired immediately, the damage can get much worse.
  • Heat leaking from you roof in the winter can result in high utility bills; repairing or replacing a roof keeps you warmer, lowers your bills and helps conserve energy.
