Homeowners who are worried about their roofing in Rocklin, CA can breathe a sigh of relief as the city is expected to enjoy milder weather in comparison to communities that have been struck by the polar vortex. The odds of snow falling in Rocklin and adjacent areas in the metropolitan area of Sacramento are close to nil. Residential roofing systems in Rocklin won’t be facing ice dams and other forms of moisture damage homes further up north would have to contend with.
These roofs, however, are still exposed to the elements all year round. An article published by Popular Mechanics on January 14, 2014 highlights the importance of regular roof maintenance:
The roof is your home’s first defense against the elements, so don’t tackle any interior remodeling projects until you evaluate what’s above the eaves. “If the roof is bad, everything below it gets wet: walls, ceiling, insulation, electrical wiring, floors, carpets, furnishings, and heating and cooling equipment,” says Jason Joplin, program manager of the Center for the Advancement of Roofing Excellence, which offers professional courses under the aegis of GAF, the nation’s largest roofing manufacturer. “If any of this stuff stays wet, mold can form—and there’s a real danger of structural deterioration.”
As roofs are continuously exposed to the elements, they will deteriorate over time without periodic maintenance. Problems like roof leaks, pest infestation, warped shingles, and compromised ventilation can cause roofing in Roseville and other communities in Placer County to deteriorate prematurely. If problems like these arise, it is important to call licensed and certified roofing contractors to perform remediation services.
Reputable contractors from companies like Yancey Home Improvements possess the experience, knowledge, and equipment that is needed to successfully address different roofing problems. Aside from providing free and comprehensive estimates, experienced contractors can also perform new roof installations, and oversee re-roofing and roof repair projects.
