Why the roof "wave" could cost you more...

When you look at your roof does it remind you of waves crashing on the sand? Or fans in the stands at a baseball game?

If your roof is wavy, appears raised in certain areas or has a texture outside of the norm this could actually be a big problem.

Well most of us understand and know that the main purpose of your roof is to protect your home from the elements (wind, rain, snow, sleet, hail, etc.) a roofing system is designed to protect your home and protect itself as well.

If you look at your roof and see something similar to the image above then that typically means that the decking, or the wood underneath of your roof is damaged.

The most common occurrence of this? Heat Transference!

You see your roof actually needs to breath, you want fresh air to be pulled through and expelled throughout the roof. It's why a reputable roofer will almost never do a "layover" (where they install a new roof overtop of an existing one without removing it).

When you mix warmer temperatures, with a lack of airflow, and throw in a healthy mix of either substandard labor or materials, that's when you may notice your roof is waving goodbye to you when you leave the house everyday.

If you're in the market for a new roof or happen to notice your existing roof is in need of some love and attention feel free to give us a call or schedule a free roof inspection.
