3 More Roofing Myths Debunked

If you keep up with our blogs, you know that we have been discussing common housing myths and debunking them. In this blog, we will be discussing three more roofing myths and their truths. This is a great way for homeowners to ensure that they have a proper understanding of their roofs. Let’s take a look at three more roofing myths and the truth behind them.

Myth 1: A Roof Doesn’t Need Ventilation

Many homeowners do not understand the importance of roof ventilation. However, proper ventilation is actually crucial for keeping your roof and home safe. Ventilation helps to regulate the moisture and temperature of your attic and/or inner roof. This can prevent mold growth ice dams, and premature aging. It also improves energy efficiency.

Myth 2 All Roof Damage is Visible from the Ground

A lot of homeowners believe that they can simply check for roof damage from the ground by looking up. The problem is that many people will glance to the top of their homes and decide that everything is in good shape. However, many types of roof damage are actually not visible without close inspection. Minor leaks and damage, as well as underlying issues with the structure of a roof, require a closer look. We always recommend calling a professional for this. We offer free inspections for a reason. If you suspect possible roof damage, call us right away.

Myth 3: Gutters Have No Impact on the Roof

Gutters are an important part of your home and their function helps to keep your roof in good shape. If gutters are clogged or broken, they become unable to direct water away from the roof, leading to ice dams, leaks, and structural damage. Gutters are necessary in protecting your roof.

These are just some of the common myths that we hear often, and debunking them is important. Do you have questions about the truth of a roofing fact? Call us today so we can answer it for you!
