Some people believe that roof inspectors make up problems with your roof so they can price gouge and get an easy paycheck. The reality is roof inspectors ensure there’s nothing seriously wrong with your roof that will require immediate repairs or replacement. They determine structural damage, state, and average lifespan of your roof, then see if repairs are necessary. If there are leaks or substantial damage, you’ll need to set up an appointment to make the required repairs.
If you routinely wait to get your roof inspected, there could be hidden issues you aren’t aware of that will harm the rest of your home. A leak in the roof will cause lasting structural damage to your home that will require expensive repairs and possibly a full roof replacement. If you have a roof inspector look at the state of your residential roof, on average, every six months, you’ll reduce the risks associated with roof damage and save money in the process.
