How Often Should A Homeowner Have a Roof Inspection?
Most homeowners don’t realize just how important a roof inspection is. Nor do they have inspections as often as they should, and sometimes they wait to have someone check out their roof when they begin to suspect there’s a major problem. Major problems usually mean major money.
Regular roof inspections can help you find small issues before they become big ones, and potentially avoid unexpected and expensive repairs. Our roofing contractors at Your Neighbor’s Roofer provide thorough, high-quality roof inspections
How Often Should Roof Inspections Be Scheduled?
Roof Inspections should take place at least once a year. Ideally, they should be done twice a year, especially for older roofs. The spring and fall are the best times to have inspections completed because of the milder weather. That’s a good time to see if the harsher weather of winter precipitation or the blistering UV rays during the summer have caused damage to your roof.
- Newer roofs shouldn’t be exempt from regular roof inspections because they aren’t immune to potential problems, and in fact, if you fail to maintain the proper maintenance on your new roof you could void the warranty.
- Roof inspections should be completed after a major weather event, like extreme wind or hail. Weather can take a hefty toll on a rooftop and you need to act quickly after a major weather event to schedule an inspection. It’s always best to be safe than sorry!
- Moss, black streaks, missing shingles or gutter damage are all signs that there are problems with your roof; it’s time to schedule an inspection to be sure.
