There is not a single person on the planet who wants to spend money unnecessarily. Okay, we take that back, somewhere there is likely a lunatic or two who really enjoys spending their cash just for the sake of spending it. The point is, the majority of people like to spend their money on things they can enjoy and when those pesky expenses come up that we were not planning on, we get quite annoyed. On the other hand, not being proactive can lead to many unexpected costs all piling up at once if you are not careful.
When it comes to your roof, there is one particular way you can ensure that you won’t be paying for any expensive repairs and replacements anytime soon (barring acts of God, of course). Yes, we are talking about having regular inspection and maintenance performed on your roof by experienced and professional roofing experts. If a new roof has inspections and maintenance often, not only will it last as long as the warranty covers it, but far past that date as well. This means you can spend your money on the things that are important to you, rather than spending it on a new roof when you could have just done a better job of maintaining your old one. Let’s talk a bit more about when this maintenance should take place and why.
What Time Of Year?
When we talk about inspection being completed on roofs, we are often asked by our customers what time of year they should have this task completed. For the most part, we would suggest having the inspection completed in either the spring or the fall. With more mild temperatures, a roofer can get a better idea of the overall shape of which your roof is in. Additionally, have an inspection once in the spring and once in the fall allows for all debris that may have accumulated over the winter and the summer to be removed from your roof as well. You may also want to consider having your roofer inspect your roof after any major storms simply to ensure that no major damage has occurred that may have resulted in missing shingles that could lead to a leak.
Who Should Complete The Job?
You need to make sure that the roofing contractors you hire are not only competent but also honest and informative. When you hire Silver Leaf Contracting, you can be sure that our roofing company is more than qualified for the job. Additionally, you will know upon meeting our contractors just how invested they are in ensuring your roof lasts you and does its job every single day.
What Should Be Included In Your Roof Inspection?
When it comes to what a standard roof inspection includes, you should at least be somewhat aware of the basic tasks that should be completed when the roofer arrives to check out the condition of your roof. For the most part, roof inspections include many of the same things. The roofer should always check the edges and walls of the roof, penetration flashings, the field of the roof, the roof membrane seams and the roof drainage points for any issues. Typically any problem issues should be marked on the roof with paint or keels so that repairs can occur quickly and easily in the future.
Removal Of Roof Debris
As mentioned above, having debris removed from the roof is something that can also increase the lifespan of it. A good roofing contractor will make sure that there is no vegetative debris like branches or leaves on your roof. Since debris can block the drainage points on your roof, it’s incredibly important that anything that is resting on the top of your home is removed, otherwise puddles can form which could potentially lead structural issues which will then lead to flooding is the issue is not resolved.
