Your roof deck helps tie all the components of your roofing system together. That’s why it needs to be durable enough to bear the weight of your roofing shingles and resist the effects of the elements.
Read on as Chase Roofing LLC shares the indications that you need a new roof decking.
Roof decking is made from wood or wood composites, making it vulnerable to rot and water damage when exposed to moisture. A repair isn’t enough to address this issue so immediate replacement is necessary. Take note that the longer your rotted decking goes without being replaced, the more problems it can create. Call your roofer immediately if you notice or suspect rot in your roofing system.
Mold and Mildew in the Attic
Usually, mildew grows on the surface of a moist area. It looks powdery and smells terrible. On the other hand, mold occurs primarily due to moisture accumulation. Make sure your attic is properly ventilated so that moisture won’t build up in the space.
This happens when the internal framing is insufficient or the rafters or trusses are undersized. Because of this lack of proper structural support, extreme weather elements and multiple layers of shingles can cause the roof to bow or sag. Contact a professional roofer right away to help you figure out a comprehensive solution for this roofing issue.
