Roofing And Home Security

Think of your roof as your home’s primary security system. It protects you and your family from the elements and safeguards your most important asset. Investing in a high-quality roof is an underestimated way of ensuring your family’s safety for the long term.

In this article, we will discuss the role that roofing plays in home security and how roofs prevent unwanted intrusions.

Weather-proofing

Your roof’s primary job is to keep you protected from weather. If installed properly, your roof will prevent water leaks and keep wind drafts from entering your home. These are both critical functions. Drafty homes waste significant money and energy on heating and cooling. Meanwhile, roofs that leak are susceptible to mold and mildew development.

Structural fortitude

Most homeowners take the structural integrity of their home for granted and do not realize that their roof plays a critical role in ensuring that the home remains solid. A poorly conceived or improperly installed roof can put your home at risk of developing structural problems in the future. For example, wood rot is common in homes that have leaky roofs. Over time, an entire section of the house can become compromised.

Fire resistance

Accidental fires and wildfires have become an increasing risk for homeowners. Luckily, homeowners can now purchase fire-resistant roofing materials. These specialty products will protect you during a fire and provide peace of mind for as long as you own your home. When selecting materials for your new roof, talk to your roofer and ensure that your new roof offers fire protection.

Security systems

Most modern homes are integrating some sort of security system. With crime increasing in many communities, security systems are becoming increasingly valuable and popular.

If planned in advance, security systems can be integrated into your new roof. For example, space for security cameras and motion detectors can be built into the roof structure, providing security and functionality while preserving your home’s aesthetics.
