National Roof Over Your Head Day
December 3rd is National Roof Over Your Head Day. National Roof Over Your Head Day was created as a day to be thankful for what you have, starting with the roof over your head. We here in the restoration industry think it’s a great day to not only be thankful, but to have your roof inspected before the dead of winter sets in and your roof becomes snow covered and slippery, making it difficult or impossible to access for repairs.
Roofs are no different than any other part of our home or business, they weather and age. As they weather and age, openings can occur. Any opening in your roof is an invitation for water infiltration. And any infiltration of water into your attic or home can lead to wood rot and mold growth. It doesn’t take a whole lot of water for wood rot and mold growth to set in. When the water infiltration isn’t significant enough to be visible in living areas of your home, it’s easy for these things to take hold and do some real damage without you even noticing. Regular inspections of your roof and attic go a long way to catching any problems early and thus saving you a lot of money and hassle.
