The most durable roofs are subject to wear and tear all year round. This is why roofing companies like us recommend performing a thorough roof inspection at the beginning of the year and calling for roof repair if you find any problems. Bright Side Exteriors shares the reasons roof inspections at the start of the year are a good idea.
Inspections Can Save You Money
Conducting a visual inspection won’t cost you anything. Simply take out a pair of binoculars on a clear day, then check your roof for signs of wear and tear, such as damage to the main roofing area. The flashing and vent boots should likewise be checked to make sure they’re still in place. Check for signs of leaks at the roof edge, the attic and the ceiling.
Performing inspections lets you keep an eye on your roof’s condition and spot any potential problems before they become bigger. Calling for roof repair once you spot such problems can keep repair costs to a minimum. Even minor roofing damage can get worse within a year and unaddressed roofing problems can incur more expensive repairs.
Inspections Can Help Extend Roof Life Span
In addition to the convenience of not having to deal with the hassle associated with major roof repairs, annual inspections also help extend your roof’s life span. Addressing roofing problems while they are still minor helps keep the roof in great shape. It minimizes the chances of leaks and keeps vulnerable areas fortified against rain and wind. Roofs in that condition are more likely to reach – or even exceed – their expected life span. It also serves as an early warning, if your roof is approaching its due replacement.
