Roofing Problems Near the Ocean

Did you know that we offer our roofing services in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina? If you live in Myrtle Beach and are looking for a roofer, we are the company for you! When it comes to living near a beach, there are certain issues that might arise that you may not see further inland. While you can still deal with common roofing problems, such as overgrown branches and storm damage, you may be prone to other issues as well. 

The closer you live to the water, the more humid the air will be. Humidity can be a problem for a multitude of reasons. The more moisture a roof is exposed to, the more likely it will be to grow mildew, mold, and algae. If you follow our blogs, you will know that we constantly warn others of the dangers of mold, mildew, and algae. These might form on top of your roof or even in your gutters. Being aware of any possible growth will allow you to be on top of the problem and contact a professional as soon as one arises.

Another problem you may run into is dealing with salty air. When you live by the ocean, salt can easily permeate the space around you. Overtime, salt can begin to wear on your home, causing decay. You might find more fading in the colors of your paint and siding as well. Between humidity and salt, a beach house takes on much more than a home that is further inland.

In addition, beach houses deal a lot more with sand, storms, and heavy winds. Taking all of this into account, it is always good to have a professional that you can turn to.
