An important, but often forgotten, part of good routine home maintenance is the roof inspection. Don’t let your roof stay out of sight and out of mind–neglecting to keep your roof well-maintained can cause huge issues for your home down the line, from roof leaks to flooding, to poor insulation and even collapse. Many people forget about their roof until these problems arise, but you should be scheduling roof inspections routinely in order to prevent these large-scale issues. Read on for everything you need to know about getting your roof inspected.
When Do You Need a Roof Inspection?
It’s important not to get a roof inspection after a problem arises. You should have your roof inspected regularly as a part of your routine home maintenance. It’s a good idea to have your roof inspected before stormy seasons, or before the winter, in order to prepare your home for any bad weather that may cause problems for your roof.
What Exactly is a Roof Inspection?
A roof inspection entails a visit from a roofer, who will examine your entire roofing system for problems or signs of trouble. This means looking for leaks, but also any damage to your roofing membrane, or protrusions that have caused damage to some part of your roofing system. These protrusions can be pipes or sources of natural damage and can represent a serious deterioration of your roof’s membrane. Identifying any parts of your roofing system can help you stay proactive about your home maintenance and replace any old or deteriorated parts of your roof.
Why Should You Have Your Roof Inspected Regularly?
Regular roof inspections can save you thousands of dollars over the long term. They can really be considered pennies on the dollar compared to the scale of damages that your roofing can concur unchecked over time. By the time you find a leak in your home, your entire roofing system may be compromised, causing a very expensive construction project that can take a long time to fix. Staying on top of these issues with regular roof inspections will help you better maintain your home, keep your roof well cared for, and give you peace of mind.
