Roof damage and related problems are not always easily detectible. Sometimes, they can only be found during a detailed roof inspection. For the best results, a roofing expert will go up on your roof and into your attic to perform a detailed inspection and analysis. When qualified roofing contractors are able to identify small problems early, they can usually fix them before they become big problems that result in leaks, water-damage and other expensive property damage.

In his article, Roof Inspections: Preventing Long-Term Trouble, Thomas A. Westerkamp of Facilities.net provides a clear and thoughtful explanation of why roof inspections are so important.  Included in his argument are the following facts:

?

  • Roof inspections are a requirement of many roof warranties
  • Roof inspections are the first step toward preventive maintenance, which can extend the life of your roof
  • Roof inspections are best done in the spring and fall and after a major storm that may have caused roofing damage. This can help with homeowners insurance claims as well.

Additionally, Westerkamp advises that if your home is located near trees that drop leaves or seeds that you schedule the inspection for after the leaves and seeds have dropped so that gutters and downspouts can be checked for clogs.
