<span>Quick Checklist:    </span> Question – Is Your Home Overdue for a Roof Inspection?
  • Opening Intro -

    If you are like most homeowners, the roof does not get a lot of attention.

    The only time that having a professional take a look comes to mind is when something goes wrong.


Try to think back to the last time the roof was inspected. If it has been a few years or if certain events have taken place recently, making a call today is a good idea.

  • The Gutters Need Cleaning Anyway
    You know that the gutters need to be cleaned before summer, and this you would rather not do the job yourself. As long as someone will be up there flushing out the gutter system, have the professional take a look at the general condition of the roof. If any issues like cracked shingles or loose flashing in a valley are present, arrange for the repairs to take place now. You’ll head off the possibility of leaks that cause damage to the attic.
  • Severe Weather the Last Few Days
    The weather was less than pleasant the last few days. Between the high wind and one round of hail, you wonder how the roof fared. So far, there’s no sign of watermarks on the ceiling, but it never hurts to be sure. A roofing contractor can check the roof and see if the storm caused any damage. In the best case scenario, you’ll learn that the roof is still in great shape.
  • Five Years Since the Last Inspection
    There’s no reason to think anything is wrong with the roof, but it has been several years since it was checked. The best approach is to have the roof inspected at least once every couple of years. When the roof is getting close to couple of decades old, an annual inspection wouldn’t hurt. If there is some minor issue developing, the inspector will find it and provide suggestions for resolving the issue. Rest assured that taking care of the matter now will save a lot of money later.
