How Often Do I Need to Have My Roof Inspected?
Sun, extreme changes in weather, storms and more all take their tolls on a roof. Regular inspections by a professional roofing technician from Premiere Roofing will allow small issues to be located and repaired before they become much more expensive repairs. Ideally, inspections should be completed twice per year, both in the spring and fall in preparation for hurricane season and winter weather. Replacing any missing shingles, repairing holes in the flashing and/or other simple issues can often prevent major structural damage resulting from even small water leaks which can seep into your attic, walls and beyond.
What Occurs During a Professional Roof Inspection?
During your roof inspection, a roofing technician will complete the following tasks:
- With the aid of ladders and safety equipment, your entire roof will be inspected for movement of any shingles, obvious signs of leaks and the overall condition of the shingles themselves, as these materials naturally degrade over time.
- All gutters and drains as well as chimneys or vents with flashing or other sealers will be carefully examined for leaks, clogs and other problems.
- The interior of the roof will be inspected from within your attic. The slightest sign of water damage (such as moisture, mold or tiny pinholes of light which are visible through the roof) can typically be spotted from this vantage point, allowing leaks to be traced back to their source.
- A complete write-up of any problems will be provided along with a free estimate of the cost of repairs at your request.
