When buying a house, changing office space or renovating, one of the things you need to consider is the roof. This is one of the main parts of the structure and has not only the role of protection against weather and animals but also the role of support. The house is built as a whole, and if something breaks, the other parts will suffer too. If you are not sure your roof is in an excellent condition contact a professional inspector. With the help of a home inspector, you can do a thorough Kelowna roof inspection that will weight a lot when deciding to buy or renovate property.
A long time ago human beings figured out that it is better to have a “roof” over their heads than to stay out in the rain. Since then, the quality of life has evolved a lot. We moved from the caves into comfortable houses. Unfortunately, unlike a cave, the house needs some improvements from time to time. The roof consists of a wooden structure that is covered by roof tiles, to protect you from the harsh conditions. In time, the structure and the tiles will wear down, and water can infiltrate into your home. This can create severe damage to the structure of the house, and affect your health.
Water can infiltrate into the walls and destroy the backbone of the house. Furthermore, the water in the walls will not dry, resulting in mold infestation. The mold is very dangerous for the health of young children and elderly people, but if can affect anyone. Pulmonary disease, cardiovascular disease, respiratory problems are just a few of the risks you are exposed to if you stay in an environment full of mold for a long time. If you have a leaky roof, you’ll need a Kelowna mold inspection completed to ensure your home is safe.
