When was the last time you had your roof inspected? If you’re like many homeowners, the answer is never, after the last storm, or when you bought your house. It might surprise you to know that you should have your roof inspected once or twice a year. Why? Take a look at four factors for needing those twice-yearly inspections.
1: Storm Damage
This is the most common and probably the most obvious reason for a roof inspection. Hail, wind, rain, ice, and snow can lead to damage that you can’t see from the ground. An inspection can identify the damage and recommend the proper repair or replacement.
2: Wear and Aging
Weather and time take a toll on your roof. Even if you think yours is in good shape, there could be minor issues you don’t know about that can lead to big problems if left untreated.
3: Leaks and Water Damage
One of the biggest and most devastating roof issues are leaks. They can result in major or even catastrophic water damage inside your home. Before it gets that far, an inspection can identify leak risks before making their way under your roof.
4: Warranty Work
If your roof has a warranty, it’s important to know that warranty work is only done after an inspection. Don’t wait until your warranty expires before making sure your roof is in good repair. Find out now if you should file a claim.
The average homeowner can’t determine the condition of their roof from the ground, and it’s not advisable to get up on the roof to have a look.
