What Happens During A Roof Inspection?

It’s not an exaggeration to say that your roofing system is your home’s first line of defense against the elements. Whatever the weather is, whatever the climate, a good roof is essential in keeping you, your family, and your home safe and sound. Having a roof, however, is not a build-it-forget-it kind of deal. Depending on what material you have, it requires a certain level of care and maintenance to perform its best.


Frequency of Roof Maintenance and Inspection

The amount of care a roof needs depends on its material. Wood roofs are beautiful to look at but they are vulnerable to quite a few problems like moisture, impact, and other extreme weather conditions. Because of this, they need inspections and repairs as often as once every year. In some cases, it’s even necessary to have them inspected for damage every season.

On the other hand, natural stone slate and metal are the polar opposite when it comes to strength and durability, which means they only need to be checked at least once every five years, or every after a particularly bad storm. Experts recommend having asphalt shingles inspected once every three to five years.

Roofing Inspections

During an inspection visit, your roofers will begin by doing a visual assessment of any potential problem areas. In particular, they will try and look for any signs of damage that could lead to water penetration, leaks, and other troubling issues. Inspections will also include a full check of the physical structures that support the roof as well as surrounding areas of your home. Once finished, your professional will make recommendations about repairs or any further maintenance step that needs to be done.
