In his article, 10 Reasons Roofs Should Be Inspected, Edis T. Oliver of Facilities.net makes a very good point. He writes, “Roofs are often said to be like tires. We only think of them when a problem arises, and we only replaced them when we absolutely must. But, when we do think of tires and maintain them regularly, we can extend their useful lives.” The same can be said of roofs.

While some people feel that roof inspections present an unnecessary expense, they can actually be quite cost effective. Oliver lists 10 good reasons to have them done regularly, including:

  • Checks for weathering and aging
  • Routine maintenance of minor damage
  • To determine if a storm has caused damage
  • To check for leaks that might otherwise go undetected
  • To ensure proper drainage
  • To assess whether vegetation has caused damage
  • To clean the roof
  • For added security
  • To qualify for warranty repairs
  • And to perform needed improvements
