Roof inspections are actually an important part of home ownership yet the average homeowner rarely bothers to have this task taken care of. Your roof is the most important aspect of your home but you probably aren’t even taking care of it the way you should be.
We get it; you have a hectic schedule and keep forgetting to do it. But the problem is that if you do have any minor problems that go ignored they can quickly lead to major issues. So aside from the fact that you should have an annual inspection as part of maintaining your home there are good reasons why this should be done.
Top Reasons for a Roof Inspection
- Storm Damage
This truly does earn the number one spot for a good reason. Storms can do major damage and if you don’t inspect it in time then you may not notice the damage in time to file a claim with your insurance.
- Proper Drainage
You need to ensure proper drainage from the roof and gutters. If water begins to pool it can cause big problems like mildew or even collapse part of the roof or gutters. So what starts out as the need for drainage and repair can quickly become the need for replacement.
- Warranty Repairs
You should always take advantage of your warranty but the only way to do so is have it inspected and find out when it needs to be done.
- Other Elements
Your roof is more than just the shingles on the top. You have your chimney, skylights and other components that should also be checked out. This is especially true if you ever had a satellite mounted to the roof.
- Vegetation Damage
One of the most overlooked roof problems are the ones caused by nearby trees or growth on the roof. Trees grow and begin to pull at shingles or the roof. Or storms knock branches down. Sometimes seeds that land on the roof begin to sprout and a regular inspection and cleaning can help prevent this.
