As we are all well aware, your roof is a vital part of your home and plays a major role in keeping the building safe and protected. It is a hugely important part of the structure, which means that keeping it in good condition and actively looking for the first signs of any damage or problems is vital and can prevent serious long term damage. The best way we advise looking after your roof, is with roof inspections. You can inspect your roof by simply keeping an eye on it and looking for indication of damage or anything unusual, however you can also have a professional roof inspection where a roofer will come out to your home and carry out a full inspection to assess conditioning.
We believe that roof inspections are very important and something that you could really benefit from, and we wanted to explain a few reasons why!
Value for money
Quite often, people may avoid getting roof repairs due to the cost, however what they may not realise, is that getting it repaired sooner rather than later actually saves a lot of money. The worse the damage gets, the more it’s going to take to repair and therefore the higher the cost is going to be. If you stop a problem in its tracks and before it evolves into a more serious issue, you could potentially be saving hundreds of pounds. Getting a professional roofer to come out and do an inspection could really help to ensure that major damage does not happen.
It’s a key part of roof maintenance
Although a lot of people don’t do it, regular roof inspections are actually highly recommended as part of maintenance and ensuring that your roof is safe, secure and in good condition. Proper professional roof inspections should be conducted at least once a year. It is not a necessity, but comes highly recommended by roofing experts such as ourselves, as we see first hand the impact of damage when it is left or unnoticed.
The sooner the better
The sooner a problem is flagged up, the less impact it is going to have and the quicker it can be seen to. Roof inspections allow things to be identified before they turn into a big issue. Furthermore, this can also be done either professionally or personally. Of course, a qualified professional will be able to carry out a much more thorough and knowledgeable inspection, however you can help by simply looking out for any unusual signs yourself as this can be just as important and means you are catching any problems at the first sign of them.
It flags up anything out of the ordinary
The great thing about roof inspections, is that roofers can spot problems from the earliest indications. Even if it’s not necessarily an issue at the time, if it presents risk of any major problem occuring in the future, they can put an early stop to it and ensure that it is fixed and safe. Roof inspections can flag up all kinds of things, from broken shingles, to blocked gutters, to collapsed roof cladding. It is our job to ensure that your roof is safe, and this means fixing anything unusual no matter how big or small.
