Along with cleaning your roof, one of the most important maintenance tasks is to have it inspected. A roof repair inspection by a licensed roofing contractor can save you money and a lot of trouble. Consider the following benefits:
1. Find Hidden Issues
While many problems in a home can be uncovered simply by walking through the home, roof problems are usually out of sight. A thorough inspection will uncover problems that would otherwise be overlooked.
Given that roof issues can be the most expensive problems a homeowner faces, a roof inspection is usually worth the cost. Similarly, it is important that you have one conducted prior to purchasing a home so that you can factor it into the cost of the house.
3. Keep Minor Problems from Worsening
An inspection can uncover small issues that have the potential to become big ones in the future. By spotting these issues early, you can make plans for repairs and prevent larger problems from occurring later on.
4. Routine Maintenance
It is a good idea to have a roof repair inspection performed at least once every three years and twice per year if the roof is over 10 years old.
5. Maintain Your Home’s value
Prospective homebuyers will want to know the condition of the roof before making an offer. Most buyers will not want a roof that needs extensive repairs.
6. Accurate Evaluation
Our roofing professionals have the tools, skills and experience to evaluate the roof’s condition.
7. Peace of Mind
A roof repair inspection can provide you with the peace of mind that one of your home’s most important components is in good condition.
8. Help with Insurance Claim
After damage due to weather or an accident, a roofing inspector can work with your insurance company to ensure that you get the claim amount to which you are entitled.
9. Longer Lifespan
Regular inspections can help your roof to last for a longer time after it has been installed.
10. Validate Warranty
Many roofing system warranties require the owner to notify the manufacturer within thirty days of discovering a leak. An inspection can keep you from voiding the warranty.
A home represents a significant investment. It is your responsibility to learn as much as you can about the condition of your property in order to protect that investment. Having your roof inspected can help you to do that.
