Why Schedule a Professional Roof Inspection?
For most people, their roof is out of sight, out of mind — until there’s a problem. Like after a storm has hit, when there is visible damage — they notice water stains on the ceiling. Other homeowners might be preparing to sell their homes and suddenly notice a costly problem with their roofs.
Preventive maintenance preserves the structural integrity and longevity of your roof. By scheduling annual roof inspections — much like you would with your HVAC system — you can address smaller repairs that might be missed by the naked eye.
If minor issues are left untreated, they could become much larger problems that cost more to fix. For example, missing shingles left without replacements for several years are prime places for water ingress that rots your roof’s foundation.
However, regular roof inspections ensure your home is in the best condition possible, keeping it safe and raising your property’s resale value if you decide to sell. Opting for an inspection before buying a home allows you to make an informed decision without surprise costs from an old or damaged roof.
