There are rules in the roofing industry to guarantee a prolonged roof life span and performance. Each homeowner or building owner should familiarize themselves on these three important roofing codes, despite how experienced their contractor is. Because knowledge about the roof over your head always pays off, especially since it’s the leading protection you have against inclement weather.
Moisture damage is one of the leading causes of premature roof replacement. Water, regardless of its form, generally causes wood decay and is a catalyst for metal corrosion. Its destructive power doesn’t always have an immediate effect, but it ultimately renders non-resistant construction elements structurally unsound in the end.
