Certified Roof Inspections Free project estimates
All roofs eventually wear down over time, which is why a regular roof inspection is essential to ensuring the quality of your roof. Most people get their roofs inspected when preparing their home for sale, but roofs that are past warranty or have recently been exposed to severe weather should be inspected too.
Certitude Home Improvements provides thorough roof inspections to ensure that the structural integrity of your roof is intact. We carefully evaluate all aspects of your roof and identify any areas that need repair or replacement. Whether you've experienced severe weather or are planning to sell your home, a roof inspection is essential. We provide all our roofing services to residents in Wayne, West Chester, Malvern and throughout SE Pennsylvania.
How often should you inspect your roof?
The National Roofing Contractors Association even recommends checking your roof twice a year (during the fall and spring). With milder weather, you may be able to spot problems more easily during the inspection. Mild weather at the time of inspection also allows you to make sure your roof will be ready for the upcoming temperature and seasonal changes.
Factors to help you determine how often you should have your roof inspected include:
If your roof was recently subjected to a major storm involving high winds, hail or flying debris, have your roof inspected as soon as possible. Bad weather has the ability to damage even the newest and toughest roofing systems.
Age of your roof
Older roofs are more susceptible to water damage. Roofs that are 10 years old or more can benefit from seasonal inspections
You should have your roof inspected more often if you have a lot of tree coverage in your yard. Trees can wreak havoc on your roof, especially in the event of a storm. Branches and limbs can put holes in your roof or rip off shingles.
If you don’t get to your roof inspection as often as the NRCA recommends, inspections should typically happen annually, or every couple of years. Regular inspections will help catch roofing problems before you need costly replacements. Roofing system problems can be expensive if you wait too long, especially ones that cause water damage or mold.
Preventing minor problems with simple roofing repairs will save you money down the line. Certitude’s complete roof inspection service for Pennsylvania homeowners will ensure your roof is protected and offer roofing solutions including repair or replacement.
