Some common roofing problems you need to watch out for

Not all the issues you’ll find with your new home are inside. Purchasing Islamic loans is a good foundation, but you need to look outside the home as well as inside to keep an eye on problem areas. The roof is a prime example. There are some red flags you should be watching for on the roof that can be corrected before they cost you a lot of money.

Shingles and the Sun

Even though asphalt shingles are still the most commonly used roofing material, they aren’t indestructible. Under the relentless power of the sun, thesehome insulation can dry, crack and peel over time. These can actually fall right off and expose the sheathing underneath to the elements if left unattended.

Snow And Ice Aren’t Always Nice

This is why you need to check your roof every spring. Snow and ice can make their way under the shingles and then freeze, making way for more damage when the cycle repeats and little passageways are formed. If you live in a colder climate, it’s a good idea to check your roof when you can to see if there is any damage that warrants a quick repair.

Your roof is the foundation of your home in the same way Islamic finance is the base for your real estate purchases.
