Why You Should Replace Your Roof’s Decking
Your roof deck serves as the foundation for your roof shingles. If your roof decking is damaged, it won’t be sturdy enough to adequately support your roof shingles, putting your roof at grave risk of damage. In this case, our Houston roof repair experts are available to help! As a roof repair-only company, we know all of the best ways to reinforce your roof to improve its lifespan, and one of these methods is to replace areas of damaged roof decking.
Wood rot is the primary cause of damage to your decking. This occurs when the plywood that makes up your decking has absorbed excessive moisture, resulting in it disintegrating and rotting away. Your roof deck may absorb too much moisture on the interior and on the exterior due to an unaddressed roof leak, excessive humidity in the attic, and/or if any roof shingles are missing, as this results in exposing your roof decking to the elements.
Wood rot can lead to a number of other issues, each of which severely weakens your roof’s structural integrity. These issues include (but are not limited to):
- Damaged roof insulation
- Bulging spots on roof or ceilings
- Spreading existing wood rot
- Fungus and mold growth
These are serious problems that not only put your home’s structure at risk, but also put yours and your family’s safety at risk. It’s best to address damaged decking as quickly as possible so that you can then reinforce the rest of your roofing from the outside by investing in shingle replacement and even weatherizing services. Once your decking damage is corrected with a roof deck replacement, then your roof shingles, chimney flashing, and other components will be adequately protected and supported, too!
