How Often Should You Have A Roof Inspection?
Answer: At least once per year!
Whether you call an experienced professional or you climb on the roof and take a look yourself it is important that you complete a roof inspection yearly. A thorough inspection will prolong the life of your roof and alert you of any leak or potential leak before it accumulates into a much bigger and more expensive problem. That said, you need to know a few things to look for if you are conducting the roof inspection yourself.
1. Tree Limbs Touching The Roof
2. Clean The Gutters
3. Look For Particles of Shingles (granules) in Gutters and Around Perimeter
4. Lifted or Buckled Shingles
These are just several important items to look for when inspecting your roof that help prolong the life of your roof. A helpful reminder is Spring Cleaning, clean the house inside and out which includes the roof.
