Roofers confirm that a leaking roof can cause serious and costly damage to a house. Infiltrating water can destroy drywall or plaster, cause mold, and even rot framing Dealing with a damaged roof is sometimes a simple matter of applying roofing cement to an obvious hole; at other times one might need to spend time diagnosing the problem and calculating the benefits of repairs versus installing a new roof. It is very important to get your roof checked to avoid expensive repair as its condition gets worsen.
How often should you have your roof inspected?
Roofer contractors state that even if you do not notice any signs of damage to your roof, you will want to set up roof inspections at regular intervals throughout the lifespan of your roof. As a general rule of thumb, it is recommended that you have your roof inspected at least once every two years. Having your roofers come and check out the quality and condition at this frequency will help you avoid potentially serious roofing problems.
When should you call a roofer?
Roofers advise property owners to always call for an inspection if they notice any of the signs below:
- If the roof leak (leaks and water spotting on ceilings or walls)
- If the roof is sound with a few weak spots,
- If the roof shows signs of general wear,
- If the attic is not in a good shape,
(Inspect the attic after every rainfall for protecting it from damaging your interior spaces)
- If shingles or shakes need to be replaced,
- Lifted Ridge Vent and Ridge Cap
- After a natural disaster
- Missing Shingles
- Lifted Shingles
- Roof degranulation
Your roof is your home’s first line of defense against elements. Even if you can’t afford to have a professional roof contractor inspect your roof after every natural hazard, it is crucial to have it inspected once or twice a year.
While a roof may seem structurally sound when one looks at it from the ground, even the most solid-looking roofs can have hidden damage and other problems. At periodic intervals over the years, it is important to schedule roof inspections. A team of qualified roofing contractors in Charlotte can provide you with a roof inspection that identifies any problem areas throughout your home’s roof.
