Perhaps the most important part of your home, your roof is easily overlooked when it comes to regular home maintenance. So long as there are no roof problems like leans there’s no need for an inspection, right? The truth of the matter is inspecting your roof on a regular basis, even if you don’t suspect any damage, is vital to maintaining and even extending the life of your roof. Read on to learn more about how regular roof inspections can help you.

How Often Should You Inspect Your Roof?

First and foremost is knowing the frequency at which you should schedule roof inspections. That will mostly depend on the age of your roof. If your roof is ten years old or older, it’s wise to have an annual inspection (on top of any additional inspections you might schedule for suspected damage). If your roof is on the newer side, then every three to five years will suffice— although you can also schedule inspections every two years if you prefer.

What Are The Benefits of Inspecting Your Roof?

The answer to this question is broad and varied. The most prominent reason is that regular roof inspection can save you from needing bigger repairs further down the line. Regular inspections are more likely to catch issues in their beginning stages. Things like loose or missing shingles, poor drainage, or small patches of dry rot can lead to worse damage if left unchecked. They can cost you much more in repairs further down the line. Another prominent reason is that it can help extend the life of your roof and let you know whether your roof needs replacement or if it can last another decade as is. Regular inspections can also catch any storm damage you could have missed during hurricane season. Don’t wait until your roof starts exhibiting signs of damage. By then the problem could be much worse than if a regular maintenance inspection had been conducted.
