Roofs require an inspection at least once per year. Some homeowners are tempted to climb a ladder, get up on the roof and attempt to analyze their roof on their own. This is a major mistake that can backfire in a big way. Here’s why you should lean on the professionals for a comprehensive roof inspection.
Safety is the Top Concern in Roof Inspection
A non-certified roofer should not climb up on a roof in an attempt to perform a DIY inspection. Most roofs have a fair degree of slope that proves awfully difficult to traverse. In other instances, the roof is slippery due to rain, moisture, wet leaves or other substances. Someone who is unfamiliar with roofs could easily lose his balance, slip, trip and fall. Do not put your personal health or another person’s health at risk by getting up on your roof. Let one of our certified roofers handle this inspection project to ensure it is performed without injury.
A Professional Roof Inspection Prevents Expensive Problems
Certified roofers know exactly what to look for once they are up on the roof. These professionals have the training and experience necessary to identify weak points and areas that have the potential to become major problems down the line. This is the expertise you need to nip problems in the bud now so they do not become costly repair endeavors at some point in the future. A professional roof inspection might even highlight roof issues that can be repaired in the coming weeks or months so you don’t have to shell out the money required for a full roof repair. This proactive stance has the potential to save you tens of thousands of dollars.
Peace of Mind
Have your roof inspected at least once per year by a certified roofer and you will rest easy, knowing the barrier between mother nature and your loved ones is in solid condition. Some homeowners wait to have their roof analyzed until a particularly strong storm passes through. The roofer will look for damage stemming from the storm, weak points, leaks and other troublesome signs. The inspection might not turn up anything of note. However, you won’t know until you have a certified roofer get up there and take a close look at the nuances of your roof. Have your roof inspected by a legitimate roofer and you will enjoy an invaluable peace of mind.
An Annual Roof Inspection Facilitates Insurance Claims
If you have any sort of roof-related insurance claim resulting from storm damage, a roof inspection will make the process much less arduous. The typical homeowner is not exactly sure what sort of roof work is covered by his insurance. There is no shame in not knowing these details.
Let a certified roofer conduct a thorough inspection, highlight the trouble spots, assist with the preparation of the insurance claim and perform the repairs. This assistance will make the insurance claim process that much easier in the stressful aftermath of a nasty storm.
A Professional Roof Inspection is Comprehensive
Some homeowners grab a pair of binoculars and walk around the perimeter of their home, assuming they can identify roof problems from afar. The truth is you can’t pinpoint some types of damage from the ground. It is necessary for a professional to get up on the roof and take a close look at its subtleties. This is an opportunity to find damage that can’t be seen from the ground. He might notice loose shingles, weakened shingles, gutter damage or mold/algae in the center of the roof that can’t be seen from the ground.
