If you don’t maintain your roof, your entire house is at risk. A leaking roof can damage your furniture. Water can cause mold to grow. It can damage wood inside of your walls. This is why paying attention to the condition of your roof is so important.

A good roof needs to be made of a waterproof material and be installed in such a way that there are no gaps or holes where water can enter.

One thing to be on the lookout for when you inspect a roof are nailheads that protrude. This could mean that there is water damage to the underlying wood which allowed it to rot, leading to the nails becoming loose.

Mold damage is another sign that you might have issues with water getting in where it shouldn’t. While it is important to get rid of the mold, you should also find the cause of the growth.
