Since roofing issues can quickly lead to thousands of dollars in water damage and require that you relocate your tenants during extensive repairs, it's important to stay on top of roof care and maintenance.
When your home's roof starts to suffer extensive wear and tear, you will likely find that it is necessary to replace the entire roof. Failing to replace the roof when it becomes necessary can expose your home to a variety of problems that may result in severe structural damage.
