The Drawbacks of Old and Damaged Roofs

Putting up with an old and under performing roof comes with its share of drawbacks. For example, it has a high chance of developing roof leaks because of accumulated wear and tear. These leaks can damage your roof’s structure leading to costly repairs. It can also lead to increased mold growth in your home, affecting your indoor air quality.

Old roofs are also poor insulators. The cracks and gaps present in the roof can leak air and energy. This causes increased energy bills and an uncomfortable interior. As experts in roofing in Fairfield, CT, we strongly recommend a replacement. We are a GAF Master Elite® contractor, putting us in the top 3% of all roofers in the country. This also allows us to offer you the full range of GAF products, together with their best warranty.
