Home Roof Inspection and Maintenance Tips

home roof inspectionAs a homeowner, you likely understand the importance of maintaining your home. This includes routine inspection and maintenance of your roof. Home roof inspection and maintenance can prevent problems with leaks, mold, and expensive repairs. It can also reduce the loss of heat from your home in the winter. However, you may not know what to look for or how to handle problems if you spot them.

That’s why we recommend this comprehensive article we found at HouseLogic.com entitled Inspecting Your Roof to Get Ahead of Problems. This article offers readers a complete guide to how to handle an annual roof inspection of their homes.

It includes such information as what to look for when you inspect your own roof. Signs that there may be a problem include:

  • Cracked caulk or rust spots on flashing
  • Buckling, curling or blistering shingles
  • Missing or broken shingles
  • Cracked or worn rubber boots around vent pipes
  • Growth of moss or lichen on the roof which can indicate decay underneath
  • The appearance of grit in your gutters
  • Indications within your home that there may be a leak such as dark areas on the ceilings

The article also provides information about how to handle simple repairs, when it is time to call a professional, and what you might expect to pay when you do. Learn more by reading the full article here.
