Should You Get Your Roof Inspected?
Updated: Sep 14, 2021
7 reasons to schedule your professional roof inspection:
Detect leaks faster: Leaks are more than an eyesore of a water stain. That water damage can invite mold and mildew to spread and even lead to major structural damage. Roof inspections can detect small holes in your roof that you might not notice right away.
Ensure proper drainage: Roofers should not only inspect your roof, but also your gutters, so you don’t have to deal with the damaging effects of stagnant water.
Provide a destructive roof test: Small damage can lead to big destruction if left unchecked. Destructive testing can pinpoint problems and determine what caused them. This includes water grade testing, termite testing, strength testing, and more!
Expose potential hazards: Homeowners might not be aware that debris on their roof can cause potential fire hazards, roofers should clear this debris and keep you aware of these issues.
Give you peace of mind: A roof over your head is the ultimate security blanket, and when you’re confident that this roof is structurally sound it frees you up to think about more important things.
Boost your roof’s lifespan: Keeping the health of your roof a priority will increase its usable lifespan, saving you money in the long run.
Minimize repair costs: Preventable maintenance can spot problem areas before they turn into major repairs. Avoiding emergency repairs can help you avoid water damage and increase the overall health of your roof.
When to Schedule a Roof Inspection
It is never a bad time to schedule a roof inspection, but the National Roofing Contractors Association recommends booking an inspection during the fall, spring, or after any major storm or natural disaster.
It’s time to schedule a roof inspection if:
You notice discoloration or worn shingles
It’s been over a year since your last inspection
Your roof is leaking
You’re looking to improve your home’s insulation
A storm has recently passed through your neighborhood
