Your roof is your home’s primary defense against the weather, and its most important job is to keep moisture out of your interior. Too much moisture inside a home can cause all sorts of problems. If you have a roof leak, you need to get your roof fixed immediately.
New View Roofing explains just what exactly moisture does to your home.
Problems Caused by Moisture
Moisture can damage granular materials like drywall by reducing its strength. Water is absorbed through the spaces between the drywall particles. When drywall on the ceiling becomes saturated, it can sag. Wood and cellulose-based products can rot when the moisture levels in the materials reach about 20%. Many houses are wood structures, so rot and decay can be a big problem. Excess moisture can also corrode the metal connectors and fasteners in roof framing.
Excess moisture in the air can also make the interior feel uncomfortable because higher relative humidity is perceived by people as heat. Moisture can also cause mold to grow inside your home. Mold typically becomes active at about a 20% moisture level. Elevated levels of mold spores can cause problems for people with compromised immune systems, asthma or allergies. As top residential roofing contractors, New View Roofing and Remodeling recommends dealing with roof leaks as soon as possible to prevent moisture problems.
