Without a roof, your home would be left unprotected. Your home is a great investment you have made, and you want to keep it in the best possible shape for as many years as you can. But without a regular roofing inspection, you might be throwing your investment down the drain. Failing to get an inspection means issues with your roof may not be noticed until it’s too late. You can protect your investment in your home by getting a roofing inspection at least once a year. Here’s how an inspection helps:
There is a number of roof problems that may not be evident to an outsider standing on the ground. Ponding water in roof valleys can wear down the shingles, hail can cause roof punctures, flashing can deteriorate, and more. With an annual roof inspection, your roofer can catch these issues before they have the chance to cause serious, expensive damage to your home.
Since many more serious roofing issues can be avoided by keeping up with roof inspections, this should give you peace of mind that your investment in your home will not go to waste. Even though some may balk at the idea of paying for an inspector to come to assess their roof each year – or even several times a year – the cost of regular inspections and maintenance is far less than the price of costly emergency roof repairs would be.
Some insurance carriers require roof inspections, so they can be sure that their investment in your home is not at risk. However, even if it is not required, you should still have regular inspections to ensure the longevity of your roof. By giving your carrier the assurance that you are caring for your roof – and your home – you may be able to avoid hikes in policy rates. This is a win for both you and your insurer.
