Your Baton Rouge Roofers
Over time, the wet climate of Baton Rouge can really take a toll on your roof. While most water will glide off incidentally (so long as your gutters are clean!), heavy rainfall leads to pooling which can put strain on any type of roof, but especially roofing which consists of tiles. The weight of the water bears down on the structures that support the roof, causing the roof to sag. Once that happens, it’s far easier for total collapse to happen. And that’s not even considering the leaks that will occur in the meantime.
Which roofing material holds up best to heavy rainfall? Asphalt shingles stand up decently to rain, otherwise they wouldn’t be the most widely-used material in America. But they’re still porous, which can be an issue if it rains for days at a time or if the rain is particularly heavy. Metal and slate roofs, on the other hand, aren’t porous and tend to be even more durable than slate. The only “catch” is that they also require a higher investment upfront, though they’ll last far longer than the average asphalt shingle roof.
There is some recourse regardless of your roofing material. Keep your gutters clear of debris so that water can drain properly — clogged gutters are responsible for the majority of ponding that happens on non-flat roofs. Also make sure debris is clear from the roof itself, as clumps of leaves and branches can hold more water than you might expect.
Of course, there’s no real substitute for having a professional come out to take a look at your roof. You should get an assessment regularly, and if you need repairs or a full replacement, our free online tool can help. Just enter some basic information and you’ll be given estimates from the top roofers in your area.
