Routine maintenance can make your roof stay appealing and last longer. You can rest assured you’re protected from harsh weather events when your roof is in good condition. However, regular inspections have more benefits than you think.
In this post, your local siding and roofing expert, Pritchett Roofing, Inc., discusses how roof inspections can give you savings.
Savings From Roof Inspections
Roof leaks are a problem that will eventually lead to another. Major repairs can be prevented if you get your roof regularly inspected by professionals.
Water damage is a domino effect. Damage can reach the sheathing under the shingles and the wooden components of your attic, such as the rafters and trusses. You can’t repair rotten wood and replacement can be costly.
Keep in mind that roof damage due to negligence, which includes not addressing problems immediately, can cause your insurer to refuse your claim for roof repair costs.
Hire a Reliable Contractor for Roof Inspections
It’s recommended that only trained professionals perform roof inspections and repair for your safety. According to the Centers for Disease Control, more than 150,000 cases of severe injuries due to falling from residential roofs are recorded every year.
Without proper training and tools, you’ll only do your roof more harm than good. A qualified inspector will check the interior and exterior for your roof. They will inspect if your roof is properly insulated and ventilated and check it for signs of moisture and mold. The inspector will also observe the roof for wear and tear, possible leaks, state of shingles, proper flashing and chimney work.
