Roof inspections help identify minor problems before they cause further damage and affect other parts of your home. This task can also extend the life of residential and commercial roofing systems.
To get to know your roof better, ask these questions during your inspection.
How Old Is My Roof?
If you’ve recently purchased your home, you may not know the age of the roof. Knowing this can help you get an idea of when you need to replace the system.
What Materials Were Used on My Roof?
Being aware of the materials used on your roof can help you in making more informed decisions for maintenance, replacement or repairs. You may even want to replace the existing roof with a more durable one, such as metal roofing.
How’s the Overall Condition of My Roof?
Roofers should carefully check the roof for cracks or holes, especially its most vulnerable parts. Leaks usually occur around the vents, seams and flashing. Moreover, loose shingles, cracks and holes in the roof can allow water to penetrate into your attic. Even small roofing issues can result in costly water damage.
When Will I Need to Replace My Roof?
Roof inspections can help determine signs of wear and tear on your roof. Cracked and blistering shingles can indicate that your roof is reaching the end of its life. After the inspection, your roofer should be able to provide an estimate of how long your roof has before it needs replacement.
