The Top Reasons for a Roof Inspection
Make Extending the Useful Life of Your Roof a Priority
Regular inspections (once or twice a year) can help identify any issues caused by weathering, aging, storm damage, leaks, drainage, vegetation, roof cleaning, and warranty repairs.
Weathering and Aging
Regular wear and tear on a roof is expected as your roof is subject to the elements. The effects of weather and aging are normally visible and over time can lead to openings in the roof where water will enter. By regularly inspecting weathered areas, you are able to schedule timely maintenance to prevent any issues from developing.
Strong winds and other weather can cause damage to your roof, particularly during Florida’s hurricane season. A roof inspection should, therefore, be conducted at the end of hurricane season and immediately after a serious storm. Any small damages that are identified can be quickly and cost-effectively resolved before they escalate. And in the case of major issues where a roof replacement is needed, it’s is important to have all the relevant information in order to begin making plans for the work to be done.
Roof hail damange can also vary greatly from one part of the house roof to another. This variation is due primarily to the wind that drives the hail. A glancing blow will do less damage than hail that impacts the roof at close to 90 degrees.
Hail damage to asphalt shingles: Shingles can have broken or cracked tabs, but the most common hail damage takes the form of crushed or dented areas where granules are forced into the shingle mat material or displaced entirely. Since granules protect the shingle from UV degradation, hail dents can result in shortened shingle life. The damage usually qualifies the homeowner for an insurance claim.
Our experienced roofing professionals will conduct a thorough leak inspection. Leaks are not always serious. They may be an indication of a major failing, but can also be a minor localized issue. Leak assessment is important because if a leak is left undetected, any moisture infiltration may lead to unseen deterioration which includes mold, wet insulation, corrosion, and rotting wood.
Any water that is left to stand on a roof increases the chances of your roof developing a leak, so a roof inspector will check that the roof is draining correctly. They will check that leaves and other debris have been cleared as poor drainage will impact the lifespan of a roof. They will also check that water is not pooling on any surface of the roof.
Any plant life growing on your roof can quickly escalate into a bigger problem. Regular roof inspections and cleaning will prevent plants from taking root. Gutters need to be checked as the accumulation of moisture, dirt, and seeds provide an ideal place for vegetation to grow. If plants are able to take root, the roots may damage the roof’s membrane leading to leaks.
Additionally, trees that grow near to the house can cause significant damage by scraping the roof in windy or stormy conditions, and any broken branches can have an impact. All of these risks and possible issues will be noted in a roof inspection.
It can be difficult to know whether your roof needs cleaning, making a roof inspection a critical element of effective roofing maintenance. Clearing accumulated debris from the roof is inexpensive and offers a great payback as regular cleaning will prevent roof drainage and leak problems.
Roof hatches and roof skylights are a security vulnerability as they are often the place where a thief may break into a building. Regular roof inspections will ensure that all potential points of entry are in working condition and secured to reduce the chance of burglary. Broken and unsecured skylights are also a risk for water leaks that can damage the roof and interior rooms.
All new roof installations come with a warranty that covers the owner if there are issues with the roof. While not all problems such as some types of leaks will be covered, a roofing inspector will be able to identify the source of the problem so you can determine whether or not to file a warranty claim.
