Sacramento Construction Defect Lawyer – Is Your Roof Ready?
Many California’s strive to achieve the American dream of owning a home because ownership can provide long term financial security and stability for your family. But few recognize that homes are complex systems with many separate components which must work together to keep occupants safe, dry and secure. One in particular, the roof, is all that stands between a homeowner and the sometimes harsh elements of wind, rain or snow.
The roof of a home, working in conjunction with the windows and walls, is what separates your from the outside elements. If the roof leaks or fails it can have devastating effects on the rest of the home and on the occupants. When problems do occur, owners of newer homes expect the developer to come forward and help resolve the problem. Occasionally, however, that trust is misplaced and owners can be left, literally, cold and wet.
The top of a house is much more than just the tiles or shingles you can see from the outside. A roof is a system composed of wood trusses, normally hidden from view, which help create the architectural outline of the home. But more importantly, the trusses form the foundation for the weatherproofing to keep the elements out. On top of the trusses is attached sheathing, the roofing felt, tile or shingles, as well as plumbing vent jacks, flashing, chimneys and other components. All of these components work together to ensure the weather stays out and the house stays dry.
If something goes wrong during the construction of the roof system it often shows up as stains on ceilings, walls, carpeting and furnishings. In extreme cases, water from roof leaks can cause rotting to wood framing and mold growth inside walls or attic areas.
