Humidity: What can it do to your roof?


Any roofing contractor will tell you that a roof needs to be well cared for in order to provide you with the best in protection and to ensure that it isn’t going to cost you extra money. As a roof can be damaged in many different ways due to poor maintenance, hail weather and more, people are quite apt to get their roof inspected after a major weather event.  

One of the hidden types of roofing damage that can occur comes as a result of humidity.  

Humidity and your roof: 

Humidity is a common factor for many people that live across the United States. The problem with humidity and roofing materials is that the moisture can easily get trapped in the wood and the other roofing materials which leads to a series of ill effects for your roof. Humidity encourages mold growth and the breakdown of various roofing materials and this can age your roofing materials fast. 

Humidity prevention: 

The best way to prevent humidity from affecting your roofing materials is to regularly install dehumidifier surround your home to prevent humidity creeping into the roofing materials. It’s also wise idea to consider a roofing inspection to see if your roofing ventilation could be improved. If your roof ventilation is inadequate it can often lead to your home roofing system experiencing difficulty and moisture gathering in your attic faster.  

With a lack of proper air circulation in your roofing systems there is a chance that you will only continue to have your roofing materials affected by ongoing humidity.
