Why You Should Have Your Roof Inspected This Spring

After a harsh winter complete with back-to-back storms, the promise of milder weather and warmer temperatures is looming on the horizon. As the snow begins to melt, you’ll be provided with an ideal time to check your roof for any problems that may have formed under the pressure of heavy snow and high winds over the last several months. While it’s important to perform regular visual checks of your roof to see if anything is amiss, spring is the perfect time to have your roof professionally inspected!

Benefits of Spring Roof Inspection

When you have your roof inspected, a professional will be able to determine issues developing throughout your roof, from damaged shingles to previously undetected ice dams. Catching these problems early in the season allows for quick and simple repair jobs, instead of leaving it to worsen and require replacement of the whole roof. Repairs can only be done if less than 30% of the total area is damaged. Because snow adds so much extra stress to your roof (weighing nearly 20 pounds per cubic foot), it is vital to make sure that the snow is removed from the roof in a timely fashion and that a professional check for excess wear along beams, shingles and flashing. By having your roof checked early in the season, you’ll be able to properly budget your resources for repairs as the year goes on. Having your roof regularly inspected extends its lifespan, allowing you the comfort of knowing that your home is fully protected from the elements.
