Minor roofing problems, when ignored, can turn into expensive repairs. The longevity of your roof greatly depends on how you take care of it.
Today, one of your most trusted local roofing contractors, BFFAR Contracting, discusses how roof inspections can save you money. Roof Inspections
Ideally, wood, asphalt and composite shingles should be professionally inspected every three years. However, you should have your roof checked immediately after severe weather.
While you may find plenty of information online when you search “how to inspect or repair my roof,” it’s best to leave the job to experts. According to the Centers for Disease Control, more than 150,000 roofing-related injuries are recorded each year. Also, without proper training, there are a lot of things you can overlook in the components of your roofing.
Professional inspections help with the detection of small roofing issues before they start affecting your indoor space. Every part of your home is susceptible to water damage from roof leaks, including the sheathing under the shingles and the wooden components of your attic. You would have to replace these wooden parts once they have rotted since repair isn’t an option.
There’s a high chance that mold will grow in areas that have been affected by roof leaks. These microorganisms aren’t just unsightly, they also pose health risks to your family. Mold from the attic will eventually spread around your home and having them removed will cost you more. Moreover, it’s less likely that your insurance provider will cover the repair costs of roof leaks due to negligence.
