Regular Roofing Inspections

Jul 3, 2012 | Roofing Tips

The roof is one of the most important parts of your house. It keeps the structure of the house sound as well as you and all of your belongings and loved ones out of the elements! Seeing as its such an integral part of your home it should be inspected regularly especially if you live in an area of the country that experiences extreme weather from any season.

Why do I need Regular Roofing Inspections?roof inspection

To understand why you need regular roofing inspections you must first understand a few of the things that make your roof break down.

Rain/Hail/Snow/Ice: Unless you live in an extremely dry part of the United States then you see one of these at least a few times a year. Moisture can cause mildew and wood rot which can be detrimental to the structure and even end up damaging electrical components or insulation.

The Sun: This one goes for everyone seeing as the sun has yet to take a day off. Extreme heat and UV rays can be damaging to roofing materials causing them to weaken and fade over time.

Wind: Powerful winds can take shingles and pry them up and away from the house. This allows for things like dirt and water to get nestled underneath which overtime can lead to the breakdown of materials and damage to the roof.

Organic Attackers: Wood fixtures are prime homes for things like moss algae. These pesky growths hold excess water and moisture which leads to wood rot and structural damage over time. These can also grow in gutters and cause improper drainage flow and can lead to damage as well.

When do I need an inspection?

Normally you should have your roof inspected at least two times every year to ensure that you can maximize the longevity of your roof and structure of your house. Inspections include not only a look at the outside but things on the inside too like walls and ceilings. After the inspection is done you can get a quality overall assessment and go from there to pick the roof and other options that fit your needs!
