6 Reasons to Get a Roof Inspection Before Winter

A strong roofing system offers more protection against harsh elements. Regular roof maintenance and inspections can save you significant repair costs and extend its lifespan. 

6 Reasons to Get a Roof Inspection Before Winter

Here are reasons to get your roof checked before winter.

Spring and Summer Can be Harsh to Your Roof

Summer storms and heavy rains can be hard on your roof. Before winter comes, you want to get your roof checked to see if it sustained damage.

Locate Underlying Issues

Professionals are trained to detect hidden issues with your roof. You may not know it but your roof could have suffered impacts of weathering, aging, debris or organic growth. A professional inspection can reveal issues you might not have noticed. 

Also, don’t forget to have your gutters checked because that area can accumulate debris, which can cause clogging. Clogged gutters can cause water to overflow to your roof and exterior, which can later lead to damage. 

Address Minor Issues Now

The longer you delay a repair, the worse the damage will be. An inspection can catch small roofing issues before they become larger. 

Avoid Unexpected Costs

Emergency repairs and complete roof replacement are much more expensive than regular maintenance. Be proactive when it comes to protecting your roof to prevent unexpected costs. 

Winterize Your Roof to Prevent Damage

An inspection will help you determine the steps you need to take to prevent roof damage over winter. Your contractor will let you know if your roof has missing or loose shingles or is showing other signs of damage. 

Address Issues Before the Temperature Drops

Fall has the ideal weather conditions for roofing jobs. The ideal weather for roofing is on a clear day when temperatures are higher than 45 degrees. Shingles can become brittle under lower temperatures, which can be hard to work with.
