Common roofing issues
By having a roof inspection, you can eliminate the risk to your home by spotting some of the most common roofing problems such as missing shingles, plant and moss growth, leaks, shingles curling and a sagging roof. These can be the results of not checking your roof so make sure you book inspect your roof regularly.
Weathering and aging
Although your shingles are designed to withstand rain, wind and sunlight for a considerable amount of time, with the proper care in place you can expect your roof to last much longer than it is expected to. Older roofs are susceptible to water inflammation but by having your roof regularly checked you can extend your roofs lifespan and save yourself a lot of money.
Different climates have different effects on your roof - they can be misaligned or missing from the wind, curled from the rain or brittle exposed by sunlight. If you are worried about your roof in an upcoming storm it is essential that you call in the experts to take a look to make sure your roof can withstand it.
Most of the time roof inspections are only carried out once you notice a leak in the ceiling. This can result in sagging and in some cases falling through if there is a lot of standing water. The most common reason for a leaky roof is holes in the roof which allow water to seep through to damage the inside. It is important that not only do you check your roof but you do so regularly. We suggest checking your roof every 6 months – before you see deterioration inside your home.
It is important to remember that if you check your roof regularly you can save yourself a lot of money and hassle in the future. Identifying a problem with your roof early will allow you to make a quick fix before any major damage is done. The last thing you want is for your roof to collapse when you are not expecting it to - from something minor that could have been fixed pretty easily.
