It’s that time of the year again. We have switched to daylight savings time, the weather is warming up, the flowers are blooming, and it is time to see how your roof fared through the winter. It is time to call for a roof inspection in Portland.
There are many reasons you should get a roof inspection. It is a great idea to get at least one annual inspection to keep your roof in good shape and avoid costly home repairs that come from a roof failure you did not see coming. Beyond the annual inspection, some reasons to get a roof inspection include:
- Buying a new home
- After a heavy rain storm
- After strong wind
- After a hail storm
- Before the rainy season kicks in
- After a hot summer
- If you see or suspect a roof leak
Why Get a Roof Inspection?
Roofing material is open to the elements. That may seem obvious, but there may be even more to it than you realize. Tiny mold spores can take root in and around the cracks in roofing. By the time you see the mold, it may already be deteriorating the under-side of roofing materials. Cracks in tile and wood singles can get worse with changing temperature. Even hidden manufacturing defects or faulty installation may be an unseen factor in future roof problems.
A roof inspection will find these details before they become an issue. Water damage in a home is among the most expensive home repairs. If you let your roof go too long without an inspection, something as simple as a cracked or missing tile can go from an easy fix to a very expensive roof and home repair.
You don’t want a $100 worth of shingle replacement to end up becoming a major leak that destroys a large area of the roof, not to mention insulation, building structure, drywall, furniture, flooring, and more.
