Regular Roof Inspections Help Prevent Roof DamageNov 29, 2017
A home’s roof is one of its most essential features. When a roof gets damaged, it is important to make repairs as soon as possible. There are many causes of roof damage including hail, wind, sun, and simple wear and tear over time. If roof damage is not repaired, a homeowner’s costs can quickly escalate. It is important to schedule an annual roof inspection to assess any damage to your roof.
A professional roofer can evaluate your roof and identify any hidden damage. They will then provide you with recommended solutions. Proper maintenance is one of the best ways to prevent damage to your roof.
There are many causes of roof damage, but scheduling an annual inspection can help identify early damage so you can get it repaired. A professional roofer can tell you when you’ll need to pay for significant repairs and when all it will take to correct the issue is a little sealant.
All roofing materials will eventually deteriorate. Weather is usually the culprit, although even the best roofing materials experience wear and tear. The most durable types of roof materials are slate and clay. When your roof is constructed of these materials, it may last for decades. Asphalt shingles, on the other hand, can deteriorate in a few years.
Poor maintenance is one of the prime causes of roof damage. Regular roof inspections help identify problems in the early stages so they can be addressed and help prevent high repair costs. Routine inspections can also help extend the life of a roof.
Another primary cause of roof damage is hail. Asphalt-shingled roofs are especially susceptible to damage from hail storms. Hail can dislodge the small granules on the surface of asphalt shingles. These granules help protect the surface of the roof from sun exposure and keep water from damaging the roof.
When asphalt shingles begin to deteriorate, the sun’s UV rays can quickly cause damage to the underlying surface of the roof. If your roof has been exposed to a hail storm, it is a good idea to have it inspected as quickly as possible.
Another common cause of roof damage is high winds. With time, wind can loosen shingles, nails, and the flashing on a roof. When shingles or flashing are loose, rain can get under the shingles and cause severe structural damage to a home.
If shingles or roof tiles are not correctly installed, they can fail, and your roof can be damaged.
Professional roofers are experienced in installing all types of roofs and will provide a guarantee in case the work isn’t done correctly.
When a professional roofer installs a roof, it is guaranteed with a manufacturer’s warranty.
Before agreeing to have any work performed on your roof, be sure you are hiring a professional roofing company.
Identifying hidden roof damage is important so it can be repaired before it causes significant and expensive issues with your roof. Schedule a routine roof inspection at least once a year to ensure all problems are identified as early as possible.
