Inspection Tips for Your Roof

Inspection Tips for Your Roof

Inspection Tips for Your RoofDo you know how to inspect your roof for damage?

The reason your head doesn’t get wet when it rains or doesn’t get cold when it snows is because of your roof; it gives you and your family protection against the elements and nature. To ensure that it keeps doing its job properly, you have to inspect your roof for any damages and fix them before they become everything but minor.

Why inspect your roof?

You can help identify small issues that are easily repairable before they become serious issues that cost thousands of dollars.

What should be inspected?

  • Dry rot. If your roof is made of wooden or shake shingles, you should get a professional to check for dry rot or warping, which is indicative of a replacement.
  • Check out the gutters. The gutters can clog with debris like leaves, sticks, and the occasional strip of litter. This can lead to an overflow into your foundation and into your roof, which may cause damage.
  • Inspect the flashings. Flashings are those metal clips that cover the curves and edges of your roof. If they are damaged, they can easily leak and spill water.

How often should it be inspected?

Your roof, it is recommended, should be inspected at least once a year–before the rainy or snow season. But, you should also inspect your roof after any intense weather event like hail, rain, snow, and strong winds. All roofs are different, so you should hire a professional who is able to detect any and all discrepancies.
