Roofing: Why regular inspections can save you big bucks
As a homeowner, regular roofing inspections might not be on your radar.
However, making sure your roof is in tip-top shape via regular inspections can not only save you headaches down the road, but they can also save you money. Why? Many roofing issues, if left unattended and not fixed, can lead to a big cash outlay eventually.
You can also limit the life expectancy of your roof by neglecting to have regular inspections.
Having regular and professional roofing inspections should be on your spring to-do list in 2019 for sure.
So, how often does your roof need inspected? It’s not an exact science, but depending on the material and age of your roof, we recommend every 3-4 years. If you have a more durable roof type (like tile) you can go every 5-6 years.
However, if your city has particularly challenging weather or a winter season, it isn’t a bad idea to have your roofing inspected in the interim – especially if you suspect damage or have leaks.
While there are things you can do yourself to inspect your roofing (like taking a peek in your attic for daylight, moisture and other red flags), you shouldn’t try to do a comprehensive inspection on your own. You might miss potential issues that a pro would spot!
So, how will this save you money? First, by having regular inspections and following up with routine maintenance, you will likely prevent damage from leaks and structural damage from missing shingles that can lead to costly repair bills.
A qualified roofing professional will also look for issues like mold, which can cause health concerns.
Don’t wait. If it’s been a while since you last had your roofing inspected, there’s no better time than today to schedule an inspection with a professional. You’ll be glad you did!
