Check Your Roofline for Potential Damage

It’s important to visually inspect your roof every couple of months. You don’t even have to get on a ladder. You can see a lot from the ground. Here’s what to look for:

  • Missing tiles or shingles – This is a sign of roof deterioration. An early sign of this will be curling shingles. Your roof may need to be repaired or replaced a lot sooner than you think if you notice this.
  • Green spots or black spots
  • Rusting areas of your roof
  • Clogged gutters

If you notice any of the above, call your roof repair company immediately for an inspection says The longer you put it off, the worse your roof will become. So, call as soon as you can and at least get your roof professionally inspected. Then you’ll know if you need to repair your roof or have it replaced. In most cases, your local roof repair company will offer financing.

Check Your Attic for Water Damage

Your attic is a wealth of information when it comes to your roof. It’s the closest you can get to your roof without being on to of it and all you need to do is look up. Here are some signs that your roof is damaged:

  • You can see daylight through your roof.
  • Your attic is musky.
  • Your attic is damp.

If you notice any of that when you go into your attic, call your roof repair company immediately. In most cases you are delaying with water damage and not that’s not something you can afford to delay on if you want a safe roof over your head.

Schedule Professional Roofing Inspections

It’s to your advantage to have your roof professionally inspected once a year. Yes, it will cost you money and yes, you’re not going to find damage every time. However, when you do find something, you’ll catch it early and therefore it will be less costly damage. All of the inspections up to that point will be worth it. You can definitely extend the life of your roof this way.
