What It Means To Be a Roof

Aug 1st 2015 at 9:58 PM

If we're being honest, your roof probably isn't something you think about every day. Sure, you live under it, pass by it, and see it on a daily basis, but, it just isn't something that the average person considers on their way to and fro. So then, it's probably also safe to say that you may not know that much about your roof - perhaps only that it does what it's supposed to do (i.e. protects you from the various elements outside such as weather and intruders.

But what if I told you that your roof is actually an intricately constructed, perfectly manufactured part of your business or home that doesn't just go up by itself, but rather, would have had to have been planned precisely, executed superbly, and maintained properly in order for it to continue doing what it's “supposed to do”?

Reality tells us that as long as there's no reason to worry, than we shouldn't worry. And that's mostly true. But what many people - both homeowners and business owners - tend to forget is that their roof endures quite a bit of wear and tear, even over the course of a few days. For your roof, weather is a constant battle being fought against. Rain, sleet, snow, high winds, hail, falling trees, the list goes on… It's always a good idea to plan as if something that could happen probably will. Of course, the chances of something completely destroying your roof is slim, but, that doesn't mean an average summer rain storm, or winter snow storm, couldn't cause some pretty serious damage to your roof.

Think about it like this: The average roof endures, on any given day, scorching heat (or frigidness), rain and even high winds. These are the elements that we, as homeowners/business owners, are constantly trying to protect ourselves against. So, why assume that something which is constructed to protect against these elements doesn't also need to be checked on and maintained every so often?

In fact, it does. However, if your roof was constructed correctly, chances are, it will carry you through many, many years before it even begins to show signs of needing repairs or maintenance. But that doesn't mean we should just assume it's in good shape. Something as slight as a faulty shingle can have a profound impact on your quality of living. Leaks, for instance, are just one way a mostly intact roof can cause damage to your interior.

The bottom line is: Your roof endures a lot through the months or years it's been doing its thing. Of course, roofs are built specifically to bear the brunt of all potential outdoor elements and threats that might come against it, but that doesn't mean it does so without implications. The only way one can truly understand the totality of what it's like to be a roof, you'll have to become one. But since that's probably not going to happen any time soon, we'll just stick with sharing those things with you in our posts.
