Your roof protects you and your home from unwelcome pests, harsh weather, and more. With such a long list of responsibilities for your roof, it deserves better treatment than we tend to give it. More often, we tend to take our roof for granted and forget about giving it the same protection it gives us. You can be more on top of that with regular roof inspections. Here are a few guidelines for when you should schedule a roof inspection.
- You notice something out of place: If you can see peeling shingles or bald spots on your roof, it’s a good time for a roof inspection. An inspection can help identify the issue and recommend a more effective solution, whether it’s a simple repair or a full roof replacement.
- After severe weather: Although your roof is built to withstand harsh weather and the elements, severe weather, like bad storms or strong winds, can leave some damage. Scheduling a roof inspection after severe weather can help you have a peace of mind and help ensure that your roof is in top shape. An inspection can also help determine whether there was any damage done during the storm and how you might best repair it.
- Before closing on a house: When you’re preparing to close on a house, you have inspections for all the major appliances in the home, the plumbing, and more inside the home. Just as important, though, is a roof inspection, so you can feel comfortable knowing you’re buying a home with a quality roof that will last for years.
There’s never really a bad time for a roof inspection, even if you just want to schedule one for peace of mind. You can give us a call if you would like to learn more about our inspection process.
