Problem Areas Early
The longer any problem areas stay unattended
to, the more extensive the repair will be. By doing annual inspections, you can
have a level of preventative maintenance done to prevent repairs as well as
catch any problems early on to prevent a hefty repair bill.
With your roof being the first line of defense
against the elements, it can break down over time. Your roof needs to be strong
and have the integrity to protect your home and family properly. An annual
inspection can help identify ways that you can add more protection to your roof
to keep your home and family safe.
Leaks can lead to mold and mildew that can
damage your and your family's health. The water damage and growth from leaks
can also cause structural integrity issues for your home. It can be difficult to
catch leaks until it is already dripping and creating water stains within
your home. When you have a roof inspection completed, the inspector can spot
where the roof leak has started before extensive water damage occurs.
Not all leaks are caused by an issue with your
roof. Learn more about how to determine if your leak is a roof issue or HVAC problem.
