The new year is here. Hopefully, you’re able to make your resolutions happen. You probably have plenty of things to do as your new year starts, but there is one thing you should add to your list for the sake of your home: a roof inspection.
The Importance of Roof Inspections
Roof inspections are important things. Many people put them off. The reasons are many; they take time and money, there’s fear that something will be found and you’ll have to pay for repairs, or you’re worried about having the money for the inspection and possible repairs. Despite all this, it’s important to have your roof checked every year. Even a strong roof can have damage without you knowing it, and that damage can occur fast.
During the winter that begins prior to the new year, your roof could experience all sorts of weather that causes damage. Cold, rough winds can shake shingles loose. Ice and snow can weigh on your roof. Melting ice and snow can leak into your roof. Ice dams can form at the edge, preventing proper water runoff and increasing risks of mold, mildew, and roof rot. Your gutters can get full, weigh down, and cause roof damage. There are any number of possible problems that can develop over the winter, even if your roof started out strong.
A professional roof inspection can find those problems, if they exist. Just because you have a roof inspection doesn’t mean you’ll be paying for repairs. It means you will know the state of your roof, and that you’re doing what it takes to make sure it gets proper care. The roof over your head is too important to let slide.
