Do I need a roof inspection?
In an ideal world, roofs are inspected annually, preferably in the autumn before the wind, rain and snow. Otherwise, it’s recommended to have a new roof inspected after the first five years, then at 10 years, 13, 15, 17, then yearly. Other reasons to get your roof inspected; storm/hail damage, high wind damage, tree damage, or even damage by animals attempting to intrude through the roof. Depending on the age of your roof, loose worn out shingles and cracked or sun damaged shingles could be the culprit as well. About 85% of roof leaks are caused by improper installation or by defective metal flashing. It’s rare to find that the actual roofing product failed. These faulty areas are normally found near any roof penetration area such as chimney areas, step, apron and valley areas, or anywhere where the roof angles join together. During B&D Roofing Solutions comprehensive roof inspection, our roofing expert will look for any roof damage that could lead to future problems. If the leaks are not addressed, the structure of your home may be weakened as the building frame continues to be exposed to dampness.
Roofs, gutters, flashings, and skylights are the components that receive the most damage during a storm. Conditions such as roof pitch, the direction of the wind, age, and temperature of the roofing elements all play into effect when it comes to roof damage after a storm. It’s important to have a trained roofing professional who can spot these problems very easily.
