Take a proper care of your roof now and save a lot of money in future!
Winter is gone, and it’s a good idea to check your roof and see if everything is alright. After all, the roof is one of the most vital parts of your house! People rarely pay attention to it, however – unless some problem is completely visible and apparent. A little maintenance and inspection can go a long way – and possibly save the integrity of your home.
This article will let you know what to look for when inspecting your roof. For a professional opinion, it is recommended that you request the services of a reputable roofing contractor.
1. Is your roof really old?
Depending on the material it’s made of, a roof can last around 15 years on average. Whether or not the roof was properly maintained also makes a difference. If it’s almost at – or way past – the 15-year mark, you should definitely hire a professional roofer to inspect it. If you spot leaks, or torn flashing, you’ll probably have to use a roof repair or replacement service.
2. Check your walls!
The inside of your home can tell you a lot about the state of your roof. Check the walls that connect to your roof. Moisture marks or peeling paint indicate a problem with your roof. Water, and humidity in general, can be a big threat to your house. If you find any signs of that, do not waste any time – call a roofer.
3. Missing shingles?
When checking the roof itself, you should be able to notice if some shingles/tiles are missing or damaged. If the number is high, maybe you should consider replacing the entire roof rather than repairing it. In some cases, replacement is less expensive that a complex repair procedure.
