Inspecting and Maintaining Your Roof Can Go a Long Way to Extending the Life of Your Roof
Avoid Major Roofing Issues With A Roof Inspection.
Why should you have your roof inspected?
After years of being exposed to the weather, your roof can start to wear and break down, causing roof leaks and eventual structural damage to your home. The professional roofers of Knox’s Construction can provide a comprehensive roof inspection to determine the condition of your roof and make recommendations for repair that will prevent damage.
Here are just a few of the things that we look for when inspecting your roof:
- Missing, loose or worn shingles or tile
- Split or worn wood shingles
- Discoloration of roofing shingles or panels
- Rust or loose seams on metal roofs
- Granules from shingles collecting in gutters
- Loose flashing in valleys or around chimneys, skylights, and vents
- Blocked roof vents
- Mold growth
- Stains or dampness on the underside of the roof decking
- Loose or leaking gutter
How often should you have your roof inspected?
We recommend that you have your home’s roof inspected at least every three to five years by a professional roofing contractor.
Not paying attention to the condition of your roof, you may find yourself with major problems. A worn or damaged roof can degrade quickly and damage everything under it.
Call us to schedule a thorough, professional inspection of your roof to help head off disaster and expensive repairs.
