Of course, interior home damages have many ways of being caused, whether it be by your roof or not. But one way to prevent interior damage to your home is to make sure your roof is up-to-date on its repairs and maintenance checks to help alleviate disaster to your home and avoid having any interior repairs.

One cracked or loose shingle could possibly lead to devastation of your home, as small as it might have seemed. Whether water gets trapped, or seeps through your ceiling, you're risking ceiling collapse, mold growth and costly repairs. Many homeowners try to save money by not making proper arrangements for repairs on the outside of their home, and will take care of it later. But it's when an unexpected event in weather comes along and creates more damaged than the homeowner started with and a deeper hole in the wallet; because, not only is the roof in need of repair, the inside of your home has become a danger as well. 

Staying aware of your roof and taking precautionary measures could help save you and your family more money and disaster. It's important to know that our team is here for you and your home, in any case we may be needed, to assure the protection you deserve. 

Interior repair ties along with roof maintenance, which we stress is very important to help the foundation of your roof and/or home. Further damages beyond your roof can all be avoided, for the most part, with seasonal roof maintenance checks. 

By the time you spot evidence of an interior roof problem, you could already be facing costly roofing and structural repairs. Because most roof problems start small and gradually get bigger, moisture and water damage to your facility can reach critical levels before the problem makes its presence known inside your building. The best insurance against expensive repairs and premature roof replacement is periodic and frequent roof inspections and maintenance.  

While the following issues can also result from mechanical or structural problems, it's wise to schedule a professional roof inspection with Keystone Contracting Group, Inc., if you notice any of them: 

  • Increased Energy Costs - Have your heating and cooling bills been on the rise, despite adapting energy-efficient measures? An insulated roof acts as a protective shield in a climate-controlled building, because it aids in the reduction of thermal transfer between the interior and the exterior of the building. Saturated roof insulation, unfortunately, loses its original R-value, and as the hot sun (especially in Houston) bakes the surface of the roof, your HVAC units must work double-time just to keep the building cool enough.
  • Visible Water - Water dripping from the ceiling is an obvious sign that there is a roof problem, but roof leaks can be tricky. The puddle you see emerging from beneath a wall can also be the result of a leaky roof. Water from a roof leak can travel along a truss or rafter until it reaches a sidewall before running down along the structural framing. When the leak appears on the floor, you might assume the problem is one of exterior window flashing or faulty plumbing. Any water- anywhere- should warrant an immediate call to the professionals at Keystone Contracting Group, Inc., just to be on the safe side.
  • Sagging or Stained Ceiling - Dropped ceilings are common in residential homes, and especially in commercial buildings because they provide easy access to ducting and mechanical elements installed beneath the roof. Trapped heat and moisture in the space between the acoustical ceiling tiles and the roof can result in yellow or sagging tiles. While this can be a sign of a leak, it can also indicate poor roof ventilation. Without adequate ventilation, roof life is reduced and you could end up replacing the roof prematurely.
  • Moldy or Musty Odors - Wet drywall, damp framing and even metal that is exposed to constant moisture creates the perfect environment for mold to thrive. Even a small roof leak can provide sufficient moisture for mold to get a foothold. Musty and moldy smells indicate a moisture problem somewhere, and if a roof leak is involved, the problem will reoccur until the roof is repaired.     

If you feel that there is unseen damage on top of your roof and believe you need further assistance, contact our team  at Keystone Contracting Group, Inc. so that we can provide you with direct details about your roof and interior damages and the steps necessary to get your home back to original.

Most of the time, after extreme weather conditions, homeowners contact our team at Keystone Contracting Group in Houston for a roof inspection or immediate repairs. But, sometimes it's discovered that there are more serious problems that have occurred (due to a leaky roof). Serious interior damages of the home may have become evident during the roof inspection and have created situations such as, stained and sagging ceilings, peeling paint, damaged drywall, warped flooring and siding and ruined interior furnishings. Moisture collecting in the attic insulation reduces energy R value and compromises your health as it attracts and ventilates mold and mildew throughout your home.
