3 Factors to Determine How Often You Should Have Your Roof Inspected
Unless you have a drone or are very tall, it can be difficult to monitor the state of your roof. An inspection of the roof can help with that.
Depending on the circumstances, you may need to inspect your home more frequently in certain cases. The following factors can help you determine how often you should have your roof inspected if you are not enrolled in a preventative maintenance program that includes regular inspections.
If your roof has been impacted by high winds, hail, or flying debris, it is recommended that you have your roof checked by a professional right away. The following common roof issues will be scrutinized after a significant weather event:
· Missing, broken, or curling shingles
· Missing and broken roof tiles
· Holes in the roof membrane
· Loose or broken flashings
· Leaks in the attic
· Loose or broken ridge vents
Age of Your Roof
Investing in a roof preventative maintenance program will likely affect the frequency of your roof inspections. Homeowners with a roof older than 10 years should have it inspected annually, both on the interior and exterior since older roofs are more susceptible to weather damage.
However, trees can damage your roof and house in the event of a storm, particularly if you have trees in your landscaping. High winds can break your roof, and large branches and limbs can tear off shingles as they fall.
The recommendation is that you schedule an inspection if ideal weather conditions persist for your home after it has been built and if there is little to no tree coverage in your yard. It is important that you inspect your roof every two years if there is a lot of tree coverage in your yard.
Make sure your roof is inspected before it’s too late. Make an appointment with Roof Crafetrs by calling 225-667-1189 today. For a free estimate or to sign up for our Roof Preventative Maintenance Program, please fill out our online form.
