Why You Should Have Your Roof Inspected Annually

Roof Inspections

Your roof is your first line of defense for protecting your home or commercial building from the elements. If your roof sustains damage, then the structure below is vulnerable as well.

Today, most roofing materials are actually quite durable and require very little maintenance. However, it is still possible for your roof to experience minor issues. The thing about minor roof issues is that they can because big problems over time if left unchecked. That’s why we recommend that you get your roof inspected by a professional at least once a year.

When you contact our office to schedule your roof inspection, one of our dedicated roofing professionals will come to your home or business and conduct a thorough review of the health of your roofing system. Your roofing inspector will be looking for areas of concern such as:

Leaks

No matter what type of roofing material you have, leaks can happen. Leaks tend to get worse over time, which can spell out big problems for you as a property owner. The problem with leaks is that you rarely seem to notice them until they’ve reached the interior of your home or office. By that time, your building could have sustained some serious water damage.

Damage

Wind, debris and other factors could cause your roof to become damaged. When there are vulnerable areas on your roof, it’s important that they get repaired right away. If not, what could have been a simple repair may turn into a price fix down the road?

Pooling

Areas, where water begins pooling on your roof, are never good. Not only can the excess water make its way into the interior of your building, but the additional weight is not good for your roof or the supportive structures below.

Having your roof inspected on an annual basis can give you the peace of mind that comes with knowing you won’t have any surprises down the road be it from leaks or serious roof damage. With a little care, your roof can easily last you for decades before it needs to be replaced.

In addition, having a roof inspection conducted by a professional can be helpful in the event that you have to make an insurance claim down the road. Some homeowners insurance companies may even give you a discount on your premium if you can show them that you’ve been taking steps to protect the integrity of your roofing system.
