Inspecting Your Roof

People generally make a habit of taking a good look at their roof in the autumn, before a long winter sets in. Unless you are having trouble with visible leakage, checking the roof a bit more often than once a year is advisable. Roofing material, like anything else, is subject to wear and tear, and is your first line of defense from the elements. Because every region of the country has different weather patterns, it is a good idea to know what to look for, and what to expect when it comes to caring for your roof. A roof that is neglected can cost you way much more than what it normally would in terms of damaged roof boards, studs, and even interior ceilings and walls. Here, we will look at how to inspect your roof, a little about types of roofing materials, and how to assess the damage.

How Often To Inspect:

Although the rule of thumb is to inspect either annually or bi-annually, it depends on other factors. Checking annually is okay if there have been no extreme weather events in your locale, but it goes without saying that this is generally not the case. High rise buildings are often inspected on a monthly basis because of the wind factor. Although a bit extreme for the average home owner, it is a good idea to check your roof after a bad wind storm or an unusually harsh winter storm if possible. High winds can damage shingles, causing damage to the interior infrastructure, and large ice buildups can often damage flashing and the roof membrane. Ice buildup in gutters can push up under the edge of the roof, leading to infrastructure damage.
