Your home’s roof is its first line of defense against storms and extreme weather, be it a foot or more of snow dropping from the sky overnight or high winds that tear through the town (Check out 5 Signs of Wind Damage On Your Roof.). This is why every homeowner needs to understand the importance of roof inspections.
When homeowners place blind faith in their roof and neglect it completely until the first sign of a roof leak appears in the ceiling, they could already be facing much more significant problems—unwanted structural issues, mold growth, or damaged insulation, for starters. Spare yourself a headache down the road by having a roof inspection periodically by a certified roof inspector, roof contractor or home inspector.
Without climbing on the roof, most homeowners can spot obvious roof problems, such as missing or flapping shingles. Other types of damage, however, are not as visible to the untrained eye, which is why it’s important to get a professional opinion.
How Often Should I Have My Roof Inspected? And How Long Does a Roof Inspection Take?
If your roof is relatively new (less than five years old), shows no signs of interior leaks, and hasn’t been exposed to major weather events since the last time it was inspected, you can probably get by with a visual inspection from the ground and a quick check for leaks and water damage in your attic. But it still needs that visual inspection! Roof inspection after installation of a new roof is vital.
Another option would be to ask for a Roof Tune-Up! You can also request a free oral report of the condition of your roof if you’re a single-family homeowner. In any other case, however, a comprehensive inspection should be completed by a roofing professional who knows what to look for.
How much does a Roof Inspection cost?
Whether you’re looking for roof installations or regular roof inspections, hiring a professional is essential. The cost of a roof inspection is different depending on whether you want an oral report or written report.
