A roof inspection will determine the soundness and lifespan of your roof; regular inspections help reveal any problems or issues early, before they have a chance to cause major damage to your home.
During a roof inspection our inspector will come and examine every aspect of the roof structure, checking for signs of roof deterioration, wind or hail damage and the end results like:
- Loose or missing shingles
- Curling or torn shingles
- Nail pops
- Loose or missing flashing
- Water damage
- Visible holes
- Light penetration
Our inspector might not find anything wrong, but if he does he can recommend the appropriate services for repair or restoration of your roof system. Either way, you will be confident and have peace of mind knowing the true state of your roof.
So, how often should I have my roof inspected? – it depends. The National Association of Home Builders recommends homeowners to get their roofs inspected every three years. If your home is new and in great shape you could probably wait five years to get the inspection done. Be alert to when other homes in your neighborhood are getting their roofs inspected, repaired or replaced. This is an indication of possible damage due to storms or end of life of your roof system.
If your house has withstood hail, a windstorm or other extreme weather, however, then go ahead and get the roof inspected so that any damage can be detected and addressed as soon as possible. If ignored, a damaged roof can result in mold growth, leaks, and costly repairs.
