Over the lifespan of your roof, it will experience severe weather, high heat in the summer, and extreme cold in the winter. All depending, of course, on where you live. These three factors will eventually take their toll on your roof’s effectiveness in protecting your home. Catching a leak or other type of damage early can save you from having to make extensive repairs or replacing your roof altogether.
Inspect Your Roof Regularly
Inspecting your roof regularly will allow a roofing contractor to identify potential trouble areas that may need to be addressed. In most cases, having your roof inspected every one or two years is the best way to catch problems while they are small. In fact, they may be able to provide tips on how to better care for your roof so that your risk of damage is reduced.
After a strong storm, look closely at your roof. Remove as much debris as you can and look for any type of damage, such as lifted or absent shingles, punctures, or creased gutters/downspouts. If you can see damage, odds are it won’t be very long before it will be causing a leak or other problems. If you suspect there may be damage you cannot see, call your roofing contractor as soon as possible.
