Regular roof inspections can make a big difference in your home repair and maintenance costs.
Like most homeowners, you are a busy person juggling multiple responsibilities. As such, it’s easy to not spend much time thinking about your roof. As long as there are no visible problems, your roof is out of sight, out of mind.
This is not a good attitude to have. Roof problems start small, and by the time they come to most homeowners’ attention, the damage is extensive and expensive. But having your roof inspected regularly can help you stop all of this. At MEIS Roofing & Construction, we can perform regular roof inspections (generally once or twice a year) to ensure that your roof is still in good repair and able to protect you from the elements. We can also perform roof inspections on properties you are considering buying.
What Might an Inspection Find?
The best outcome for a roof inspection is for the inspector to give your roof a clean bill of health. However, sometimes the inspector will find problems. Problems include the following:
- Structural issues
- Missing or worn-out shingles
- Improperly installed or damaged flashing
- Termites and pests
- Unwelcome algae and fungi
- And more
Not all roof problems are very damaging or expensive to fix. For instance, a family in Prescott, AZ saw strange black stains spreading on their roof and feared the worst – that they’d have to repair or replace the roof. But it turned out that the black stains were simply harmless moss. All the family had to do to repair the problem was trim back some overhanging tree branches that were providing too much shade on the roof, and the problem was solved.
