Your roof took the blunt force of the outdoor elements to keep your home safe. Over time, it's inevitable to have necessary repairs to upkeep your roof's integrity. The best way to check if your roof has any problem areas is by being proactive and having a professional roofing contractor perform an inspection. Continue reading for three reasons to get your roof inspected this month.
Roofs can take a beating from winter weather. Snow and ice can accumulate on your roof and cause damage from additional weight, ice dams, wind damage, and more. It's important to make sure that the winter weather has not impacted your roof so a rainy spring will not create more extensive damage.
As your roof gets older, it becomes more susceptible to damage. Your shingles may crack or fall off, which leaves other roofing materials susceptible to water damage. If your roof is over 10 years old, it's time to do routine inspections to check for damage.
April showers bring May flowers. With the upcoming expected rain, it is extremely important that your shingles are intact to withstand the water. If any shingles are not properly sealed, the nails are too deep, have moved from their place, or have cracked, your roof decking is at risk of absorbing water. Water damage can quickly become extensive, leading to rot and mold, causing additional risk to your family.
After all, you cannot see your roof properly from the ground. There may be problem spots that lay hidden until someone can view them up close. A few hidden problems could be weathering, aging, leaks, debris, and moss growth. If these problems go unnoticed, they can lead to massive damage.
