Over the winter, you probably went through and made a list of home improvement projects to undertake this spring and summer in order to make sure everything is performing at its peak and will be able to withstand another year of rapidly changing weather. Is a roof inspection on your list? You should be having your roof inspected at least twice per year in order to make sure it is fully operational.
What Happens During a Roof Inspection?
During an inspection, your roofer will go over each layer of your roof to check for leaks, cracks and other damage that can affect your home and safety. This includes your shingles, flashing, gutters and the membrane closest to your attic. After the inspection is completed, your roofer will go over a list of recommendations for maintenance or replacement if necessary.
Why Should I Get a Roof Inspection?
By having your roof checked biannually by a professional, you’ll be aware of issues with the system that you may not be able to see with just a simple visual inspection. While your roof is designed to last up to 20 years without failing, it can only reach its full lifespan with regular maintenance and check-ins. More internal problems, including water damage to your ceiling and walls, can be diagnosed during an inspection, as well as damaged or missing shingles and flashing. By having your roof inspected and making periodic small repairs, you’ll be able to space out major work longer which can get expensive. In order to keep your roof in good shape, you should have it inspected twice per year: once in the spring, after the snow has melted, and once in the fall.
