When it comes to either your St. Augustine chimney, or the whole roof itself it is really important that you do what is necessary to take good care of your home. The ultimate protection you can provide comes in the form of staying on top of issues you may have with either one of these critical elements. Why is this so important? Here are a few basic reasons.
First of all when it comes to your chimney, if you were to have this portion of your roof fail you could end up wasting a significant amount of money on energy expense unnecessarily. In addition to this, it can also be a potential fire or smoke hazard that could actually be life threatening to both you and your family.
Another component that many do not think about is the fact that damage to either one of these areas can also leave an opening to the outside world that ultimately will cost you potentially thousands down the road. Moisture can enter through small cracks and holes that eventually will risk damage to your walls, ceiling, insulation, and any number of other portions of your structure or belongings. This moisture can also turn to mold or mildew which is also risky to your health. To make sure that this does not happen regular inspections be either yourself, or certified experts like the professionals at the Fidus Group.
