When working properly, it may be easy to overlook, but your home’s roofing system works tirelessly to provide you and your loved ones with comfort and safety. When it comes to maintaining this critical protective barrier, a roofing inspection is one of the most essential elements of properly caring for your home.
Here’s what you should know about roofing inspections:
What are roofing inspections?
A roofing inspection includes a comprehensive examination of your entire roofing system — including the soffit, fascia, gutters, downspouts, and flashing. Following the inspection, our team will communicate any issues that may be in need of replacement or repair, as well as important information like the condition and expected lifespan of your roof.
When should I get a roofing inspection?
It’s recommended that you have your roof inspected once or twice a year, as well as if you notice any issues with your roof or are buying or selling a new home. In addition to scheduling a professional inspection, it’s a good idea to occasionally examine the roof yourself for signs of disrepair — this is especially advised following heavy rain, snow, or wind, which have the potential to damage your roofing system.
How do I prepare for roofing inspections?
There are a few things you can do to help the inspection go smoothly. Measures like ensuring easy access to your roof, providing recent maintenance history, and communicating any questions you have will all guarantee that you get the most out of your roofing inspection.
